The State Fair of Texas would be so proud.  Deep fried Slurpee!

It's 7-Eleven's new offering, and here's how much it will cost.

The new Slurpee-flavored cake donut puts the cherry flavor of the Slurpee into a deep fried cake donut, and tops it with wild cherry icing and sugary sprinkles.  Now if only we can get a donut-flavored Slurpee too, all will be right with the world.

The new Slurpee-inspired donuts are 99 cents each at participating 7-Eleven stores.  One blogger says it definitely has the cherry flavor, but tasted more like candy than he wanted it to.  Sounds super sweet. But perfect maybe for a sweet Easter Sunday, as the topper on a basket bull of Cadbury Creme Eggs.

I do love the food news!  If it has a calorie, I'll keep you updated.
