I’m fittingly in nautically-inspired Portland, Maine. It’s rainy outside, me and the crew of the TV show we’re producing politicking over slots in our top 10 movie lists. Between bites of lobster, spitting french fry remnants and cursing various placements of Inception we see the glow of a 7-Eleven across the street we earmark for snacks later.
As later arrived, we busted through the doors in our damp clothes from the walk over and are immediately greeted by the chain’s celebratory display of the 50th Slurpee and Sharkweek celebrations. I could care less about the Slurpee, but my eyes are drawn to the donut case.
We head outside to enjoy the donuts and snap a few pictures. Upon first bite, our show director Noah finds that the donut is filled with a bright red jelly. Available for a limited time at participating 7-Eleven stores…and it is infinitely better than the Blue Raspberry Slurpee donut in the same case. More on that at another time:
