    What’s the point of those straws? You know, the ones with the spoon-type thing on the end.

    I have a theory, but I would like to see what other people think.

    To get people to talk about it, mentioning 7-11 thereby giving them free publicity and buzz.

    Will there still be straws for my free slurpee on 7-11 day?

    So you can scoop out the slurpee on the bottom

    The article “7 Cool Things 7-Eleven Never Told You About The Slurpee” at rd DOT com.

    I don’t think that’s what it’s for. Try using a regular straw to get all the icy bits at the end and then try using that “spoon” and tell me which works better.

    Maybe their straw engineering department is not up to industry standards.

    Eh. I find that hard to believe.

    Anyway, here’s my theory:

    When you use a regular straw to drink, the bottom of the straw sits almost flat on the bottom of the cup, leaving a very small effective opening at the bottom of the straw. This works fine for liquids, but doesn’t work well for semi-frozen drinks such as Slurpees, which tend to clog up such a small opening.

    The purpose of the “spoon” is to raise the bottom of the straw off the bottom of the cup, creating a larger effective opening, allowing the drink to flow through without clogging.

    I’ll be expecting a call from Reader’s Digest.

    Hi, I’m from the Reader’s Digest, I’m looking for a Meno who discovered the ingenuity of 7-11 slurpee straw design, do you know where I can find him?

    Hi, I’m from the Reader’s digest.

    I’m looking for a Shulem Lemmer that just landed a great music record deal. Anyone know where I can find him?

    Oops, who still reads the Readers Digest, and why would an actual celebrity hang out here? Sigh. Gotta get to the REALLY important stuff. I’m too serious to go the comedian route. And the 9 days are almost here.

    I cut the spoon tip off, I find it annoying.

    Don’t they have regular straws also, for soda and stuff?

    And do moderators actually drink slurpees?

    #1557497

    Why would I want to use a soda straw for a slurpee?

    Seems you people are 7-11 rookies. The SpoonStraw (TM) is so that you could eat your Slurpee with the spoon as well as the straw. You could use the spoon if you get a good geshmaka Slurpee perfectly frozen.
