No, they're not drizzling Slurpees on top of the cookies to create an interesting, albeit terribly messy treat. They're replacing the classic lofthouse cookie icing with signature Cherry Slurpee flavored frosting — and it looks strangely delicious. First spotted by Instagram account @junkfoodmom and confirmed to Bustle by 7-Eleven, these cookies will only be available in stores for a limited time, so get your hands on a box as soon as you can. Even if you're not a die-hard lofthouse cookie fan, you can't not be curious to see what a Slurpee-flavored cookie tastes like. I definitely am.
So far, it looks like cherry is the only Slurpee lofthouse cookie flavor available at 7-Eleven — I'm sure fans wouldn't mind seeing a Blue Raspberry rendition, or even Coke if you're feeling edgy. These might be the perfect fix on a day where you're craving a Slurpee but don't want the brain freeze that comes with it, or if you just want an excuse to feast on the iconic sugar cookies.
