PICK OF THE WEEK: Mango Melody Slurpee

The sweet tang of mangos is a natural fit for a Slurpee.

Unfortunately, that seems to be the only natural thing about 7-Eleven’s newest limited-time flavor, Mango Melody.

With the cutting edge of cryopomologist technology brought to bear on one distinct fruit flavor as opposed to a blend of partially fictional foodstuffs, it is much easier to fixate on the drink’s artificial aftertaste — not unlike how a chintzy drum machine is less acceptable in a low-key acoustic set than a synth-pop cacophony.

7-Eleven deserves plaudits for its simplified approach to flavored slush, but this entry I could take or leave.
