A Slurpee and Some Chicken Wings – Yeah, Baby!

October 19, 2009 By: admin Category: Uncategorized

Oh, thank heaven for 7-Eleven. The News to Chew staff is a big fan of 7-Eleven stores. They are like a beacon of light to a growling stomach and a parched mouth at anytime of the day. I mean, come on – the Slurpee, Big Gulp, not-too-bad coffee, donuts, taquitos, hot dogs, sandwiches and sushi. Oh, yeah, and don’t forget 7-Eleven’s bread-and-butter, cigarettes. 7-Eleven rocks! How can you not go into one and come out with something to nosh?

Well, we got word of more awesomeness recently: your local purveyor will soon be offering up chicken wings and pizza to go with that cherry/cola/pina colada Slurpee that you love mixing together. According to the Dallas Morning News, 7-Eleven is expanding its hot foods program to add items such as pepperoni pizza and chicken wings to 115 Dallas-area stores. The program is part of a nationwide rollout that is bringing ovens made by Carrollton’s TurboChef Technologies to 1,400 7-Eleven stores this year.

Stores with the new hot food program will be able to serve items such as four-cheese and pepperoni pizza (whole or by the slice), white-meat chicken tenders and three varieties of chicken wings – spicy, breaded; Asian; and barbecue.

Apparently, 7-Eleven feels hot food, and not smokes, is where the future growth lies. And one day, we’ll reminisce wistfully of the days when a bag of Corn Nuts and a stick of Slim Jim suffice for nourishment. Oh, well – you can’t stop progress.

Just some news to chew on.
