7-Eleven teamed up with Jones Soda earlier this year to launch a line of premium bottled soft drinks sold under its 7-Select private brand. The premium, carbonated beverages are available in distinct flavors made with natural flavors and lightly sweetened with cane sugar.

In conjunction with this new Jones Slurpee, Jones Soda will be launching an innovative and fun billboard campaign to celebrate the collaboration with 7-Eleven and the continued strong alignment of our two brands. Landing as the first cane sugar premium soda Slurpee drink reinforces our innovative spirit and our ability to extend the Jones Soda brand!
