Michigan Gets Awesome-Sounding Vernors Slurpees


The good news: 7-Eleven is introducing a Vernors Ginger Ale Slurpee as its first-ever regional flavor of Big Gulp brain-freezers. The bad: It's Vernors, the oldest ginger ale in the country, the pride of Detroit, so you're out of luck, New Yorkers. Only in Michigan will there be delicious slushies made from soda aged like bourbon in oak. But everyone else should hope this means more regional rollouts are in the works — maybe Cheerwine for the Carolinas (we aren't the first to advocate this, apparently), Big Red down in Texas, and, for some visual confusion, a 7-Eleven Ale-8-One combo in Kentucky.
