They have not only raised the price of Slurpee's YET AGAIN but they have also changed their policy on what cups you can use to get refills of the sweet sugary nectar. Which means my happy little collection of original Slurpee cups that I have in the cupboard has instantly become obsolete. Why do I have more than one if I refill them you ask? Well, sometimes the craving would hit and I wouldn't have a cup handy so I'd need to get a new one - but it worked out because it turns out you can only put those suckers through the dishwasher a number of times before they disintegrate.
Now, unlike gas prices which traditionally spike for summer and then go back down again this is permanent. Sigh. I remember the good old days when I could refill my Slurpee for $1.01 including tax and a new big Slurpee was only $1.25 and I'm pretty sure it was bigger than the biggest one now that costs a whopping $2.23!
