A new Big Gulp flavor has been announced by 7-Eleven in an exclusive deal between the convenience retailer and popular Mexican craft soda brand Jarritos. The popular Mandarin soda flavor is being introduced for the first time ever outside of a bottle to offer consumers a way to enjoy the classic taquerias refreshment in an alternative way. The drink is made with natural flavors, 100% real sugar and will be available at participating locations.
7-Eleven Senior Product Director for Proprietary Beverages Jacob Barnes spoke on the new Big Gulp Jarritos flavor saying, "We are always looking for new and interesting flavors for both Slurpee and fountain drinks by monitoring flavor trend experts as well as social media buzz. When Jarritos Mandarin was such a hit on the Slurpee machine, we immediately began working to bring it back as a Big Gulp fountain drink.”
