[ # ] The Simpsons converting 7-Elevens to Kwik-E-Marts!!!
July 2nd, 2007 under The Simpsons

In preparation for the release of The Simpsons movie on July 28th, 12 US 7-Elevens are converting into Kwik-E-Marts and all of them will be selling Kwik-E-Mart foods like Squishees according to Convenience Store News. One of the 7-Elevens is by me, so I am going to go and have a Squishee!!! I haven't been this excited to go to a mini-mart since I went to a Circle-K! (If you don't get the reference to that, please don't tell me because it will be too much for me to handle.  
Here is what the 7-Elevens Kwik-E-Marts will be carrying:
 — KrustyO's cereal – a bright-red cereal box shows Krusty the Clown enjoying a bowlful; inside, a cereal created by Malt-O-Meal can be found. The boxes were flying off the shelves in New York, where CSNews Online overheard a store employee telling a customer that they would have to check back tomorrow, because the 50 cases the Times Square located store had were already sold out.

— Buzz Cola – packaged in a red and yellow can, individual cans or six packs were stocked on shelves and in the cooler. Buzz Cola was distributed by 7-Eleven, according to the can.

— "Radioactive Man" comic books – Bart Simpson's favorite superhero is featured in a 32-page comic book produced by Bongo Entertainment Group exclusively for 7-Eleven. Numbered 711, the plastic-wrapped comic book has a suggested retail price of $3.99.

— Squishees – 7-Eleven's proprietary Slurpee was also reimaged for the movie. At the New York location, customers were crowded around the machines, waiting to dispense the carbonated drinks into 22-ounce paper cups bearing the official Squishee logo.

In addition, five collectible, plastic Slurpee movie cups with scenes from "The Simpsons Movie" along with six straws featuring removable Simpson character magnets are available at stores. In New York, the magnetized straws were sold out before CSNews Online arrived.

In addition, a pink-frosted doughnut with sprinkles that can be seen in the movie's poster, is available exclusively at 7-Eleven stores. However, unlike the television show's Kwik-E-Mart, the Sprinklicious doughnuts at 7-Eleven are made fresh and delivered daily to the stores, the company stated.

In all, the convenience store chain will carry more than 25 items that are either recreations of products from the actual show or collectibles, including a dancing Homer doll, talking key chains, T-shirts and hats.

Thanks Rusty!
