An Intimate Look Inside A Danish 7-Eleven


After more than 12 hours flying, fellow writer Sean and I landed in the Copenhagen Airport in Denmark for a recent press trip. As Sean beelined straight towards the nearest restroom, I wandered around the terminal.

Wide-eyed and in a brand new country for the first time, I spotted an entire 7-Eleven condensed into a corner of the airport.


While the 7-Eleven did have many recognizable snacks for us to feast on, there were many things we’ve never seen before that we’d never see back home. At least not inside a US location.

My stomach rumbling and my phone just as eager to capture these treats, I capture some of the most delicious looking convenience store bites.

Here’s what I spotted:

Kyllingespyd (kebabs)




A slice of Mexican pizza with beef.


A slice of pepperoni pizza.

Frosted Pastries


Raw balls with goji berries





Danish Beer Knows You’re a Drunk, Tells You When to Stop Drinking

“Finally, you can drink to solve your problems.”

Clearly, employees at marketing agency CP+B Copenhagen have never met an American. The agency teamed up with Danish brewery Rocket Brewing to add some science and marketing gimmicks to an age-old creative stimulant: alcohol.

University of Illinois researchers discovered that we reach peak creativity at 0.075 blood alcohol content. Using the resulting study as a base, the ad man+brewery bro collaboration produced The Problem Solver: a 7.1 percent India Pale Ale, complete with a drinking guide.

Each bottle is marked by sex and kilograms. When you reach your weight (in kg), you stop drinking. No, really, you have to stop.


While this will definitely be useful to creative types, this kind of bottling system also works really well for monitoring your alcohol intake (read: responsible adults, breastfeeding moms, and DUI probationers). Unfortunately, The Problem Solver is only available in Copenhagen at an after-hours workshop.

Maybe they have met some Americans…
