Frappio

Hmmm. Frappio. Interesting product name. It’s a new bev from 7-eleven & yet has such a familiar name, no? altho pls: it’s not like "frappuccino" wuz original either: starbucks adopted it from a coffee chain which stole it from the locals’ weird name for a milkshake. Anyway, frappio = coffee-energy-drink hybrid w/ caffeine PLUS a "patented, all-natural herb" ashwangandha aka Indian ginseng, which has been used to treat rheumatism, leprosy, & arthritis and which 7-one-one claims will not only pep you up (in a "jitter-free" way) but suppress your appetite too sorta like speed, I guess

Man, I can hardly wait! That stuff is going to clear my leprosy right up.

I think 7-11 should do a product extension: a psyllium-based energy drink called "Crappio."

perhaps i should add that this item just proves tg will go ANYWHERE for a story. and she got a starbucks mention in, too. now if she could have just squeezed in somthing from sonic, jack in the box or target, it would have been a real killer of an item.

Don't forget kit kats. 7-11 should bring back AYDS.

On another note. I see that spot on the wall IS STILL THERE. What's it been, 3 months? You'll see the spot was first discovered here and here, and further and more deeply probed HERE.

Get a rag!

the spot is an integral part of what i like to call "the NYCE look". the spot makes NYCE photos what they are. without the spot, they'd be just another blog's photos. would you remove cindy crawford's mole? no. would you fill in the gap in between david letterman's teef? negatory. would you make the eyes on a modigliani woman symmetrical? of course not. for that reason (and so many more), THE SPOT STAYS

Hey, wasn't the Captain the one who was complaining there weren't ENOUGH links!? hee

I think that's a pretty poor excuse for not having the gumption to clean the damn wall. If you'd like an identifying mark, why don't you include a logo in every picture, like "NYCE" done up in a nice wood block?

I am such a sucker for new beverages. And I'll drink them and not even like them.

I drank "Diet Coke with Lemon" for months JUST because it was allegedly "new and improved." Somehow that blinded me to the fact that the drink actually tasted like someone had added detergent to a Diet Coke.

I'm so glad you commented on my blog the other day, as it took me here. Your blog is GREAT.

And I take your comment to heart. I really do. I subscribe to a number of magazines, but sometimes there are those ones you just want to flip through..... It's hard to resist. But I BOUGHT the one I wanted today and it was well worth the splurge. And I thought of you.

After an adrenaline rush of a day, not to mention exhaustion from an enormous lack of sleep the night before, I rushed into the local 7 11 store with intentions of downing something, just anything, I needed some calories regardless of where they came from. Yeah, so instinctively hit the energy drink section only to come across your mentioning: Frappio. The hideous, boring design of the beverage did little in that attraction, it latte and espresso that hooked me. Thinking it was yet to be another dissappointment, I grabbed one anyway... what the heck, might as well try it, something new. It's delicious. And for 260 calories, could easily pass as a breakfast... ten minutes you found me euphoric, was effortlessly able to tackle the college homework assignments. A must try if you're a fanatic of energy drinks, but more importantly, anything espresso relative
