Back in mid-March, beverage maker Sprite and Miami Heat superstar LeBron James worked on a first-ever collaboration called the Sprite 6 Mix, a refreshing version of the lemon-lime soda with cherry and citrus flavors carefully chosen by the King himself.
Now the popular flavor will also mark the first time an athlete will be getting his own Slurpee, available immediately at your nearest fine 7-Eleven convenience store.
"Similar to the sparkling beverage, Sprite 6 Mix by LeBron James Slurpee combines the refreshing taste of Sprite with natural cherry and orange flavors, one of LeBron's favorite flavor combinations," notes the official press release. "The flavor of the frozen treat was co-developed by LeBron, and the Sprite 6 Mix by LeBron James Slurpee is the first Slurpee to tout a major professional athlete's name."
Customers who download the free 7-Eleven mobile app for the iPhone or Android can receive a coupon for a free small Sprite 6 Mix by LeBron James Slurpee. Beginning June 9, the coupon will be available through the savings section of the 7-Eleven app and is valid while supplies last.
"The all-new Sprite 6 Mix by LeBron James Slurpee is the latest way we're elevating our decade-long partnership with LeBron to a new level," said Kimberly Paige, Associate Vice President, Sprite Brands, The Coca-Cola Company. "It's been a great experience working with LeBron to create a unique and refreshing Sprite flavor. And, we're eager to extend the innovation of Sprite 6 Mix by partnering with 7-Eleven to offer our fans an ice-cold Slurpee drink just in time for summer."
Additionally, there will also be an Instagram contest to herald the new addition to the Slurpee family. You can enter to win exclusive prizes by completing challenges with the new Slurpee in hand.
