Drinks, that is.

Weíve done pop/soda and regular coffee.

My son loved getting slushies when he was younger. Gas station convenient stores often have a station for them. I would usually let him get a small, sometimes a medium.

We were on a road trip and travelling through Ohio. It was HOT. Like humid sticky hot. We stopped for gas where a 7-11 was. My son, who was probably 8 or 9 at the time, asked if he could get a slushie. He also was at the age where he wanted to begin to do things independently so asked if he could do it himself. I watched the door like a mama hawk but let him do it. He had asked if he could get a large, because it was so hot. Feeling generous, I said sure.

He came out with a grin on his face and a slushie the size of a KFC bucket.

Is it just 7-11 or is this the norm? We tend to avoid fast food places on our trips, except for the odd drive through coffee.

Once I realized this wasn’t a post flirting with Hifi, I got interested. I don’t know about slushees and I don’t drink coffee, but I want to be able to offer coffee to guests.

So I bought a coffeemaker that makes 1 serving at a time, pods, and mugs. I was so excited when my BFF was here and didn’t have to go out for coffee. Then we watched it fill exactly half the mug.

Help?!?!?!

I donít own one, but my sister does. There are buttons on hers that determine how much is brewed. I think it is stronger/weaker depending.

She has a Keurig.

Some mugs are fairly large, too. Maybe the size matters. Sorry.

I don't know how big they are at 7-11, but yes the sizes are huge. I stopped at a drive through to get a drink on the way to a meeting one time. I got a large so it would last. It was ridiculous. I could not hold it with one hand. It obviously didn't fit in a cup holder. And I was embarrassed hauling that thing into the meeting with me I don't remember where I went...maybe Rally's.

Drink sizes have gotten bigger and bigger, 32 and 64 oz cups are not uncommon.

My opinion is that soda is pretty cheap so if a place like 7-11 offers a huge drink inexpensively it brings customers into the store where they will likely buy something else to go with it.
