Making Up For Lost Time

I just realized my blogging has fallen off this week.  I haven’t posted in nearly a week!  With that in mind, I decided to really bring home the bacon with today’s blog.

I have a confession, I like Slurppes.  You know what I’m talking about.  Those sugar laden frozen soda concoctions from 7-11.  On a hot day nothing slakes my thirst like a Slurpee.  I like the cola kind, with a shot of cherry blasted right down the middle to fill the cup up.  Who am I kidding, it could be raining and cold outside and a Slurpee would make me smile.  I don’t know why they satisfy me so well, let’s just assume it’s a weakness.   The huge soda cups don’t hold the same allure for me.  I really like my soda, but the Slurpee……

And now this!

7-11’s in Singapore are offering something new.  No, not a new Slurpee flavor.  Mashed Potatoes!   Yup.  Complete with gravy.  You just saunter up to the machine, pull the size cup you want, pull the handle, and Viola, spuds are dispensed!  After you’ve filled your tater cup up, wait a couple of seconds and the machine will add a squirt of gravy!

What could be next?  Perhaps turkey leg’s on the roll-a-grill . . . . . . . .
