There are none where I live. Dangit, do I have to go back to Tokyo to find a 7-Eleven?
Wait, did I just find an excuse to go there? Hmmm... Wink

Rich Collins, the CEO of the Big Tent Entertainment company in charge of NHK's Domo brand in the United States, said the Slurpee is Red Apple-flavored "because Domo doesn't like apples. That way you don't have to worry about Domo stealing your Slurpee."


That sounds like something Adam West's character (the mayor of Quahog) from Family Guy would say. Laughing

Although the 7-Eleven near me closed after thirty plus years, there is a Circle K near my area. But considering I only have one slurpee every month or every few months, I typically only like classic favors.

There's a 7-Eleven down the street from me. Awesome, I will try this Slurpee, but only if I can get fuzzy Domo's to go with my straw or something.

I expect these beverages are made of win.
That and additives, if Wikipedia informs me correctly.

So I guess Domo is making it. After a two or so years on the shelves at Hot topic, to becoming Target's halloween mascot, to having shorts aired on Nick to this.

I hope it only gets bigger.

Well said. I think everyone feels a bit more....zany when Domo-kun's involved.

Btw, DO want. Hopefully I'll remember this promotion by the time they're distributed, I don't venture into 7-Eleven's very often.

Well in response to this, I bought a Slurpee for the first time in months. But I still don't know what the heck a Domo is, my guess is a mutant cardboard.

Wonderful. Now all those emo-otaku who buy Domo-kun stuff from Hot Topic will actually know who he is
