although i am not by any means a frozen beverage treat aficionado, i always thought the icee actually a higher end version of the slurpee. i guess i could be wrong.

Icees may have more ice but really they are pretty close.

sorry guys but walk into a 7/11 and buy a coke Slurpee then buy an ICEE at target and you'll notice ... ICEEs are mostly foam as opposed to slurpees which are mostly ice

Exactly, one is very light, the other is thick and heavy.

Does 7/11 still allow free Slurpee refills, or have they posted a sign too?

EXACTLY !!!!! why do these dudes think im serious ???
You know I have been working a lot lately but I'm so glad I found this thread again.

Lovegun I have been here for quite sometime. I've made fun and joked about many ppl and the same has been done to me, but going around and talking shit to Gizmo, Moopher and awil1026 is not the right way to go about things. You need a thicker skin if you want to enjoy your time here man.

If it wasn't for them this would be just another turd of a thread with none of the gold it has now.

BTW you were totally serious in this thread thats what made it so damn ridiculous.

In 7-11's in Japan it would be worth browsing, as they have everything imaginable. (DVD's, games, etc.)

Re: Targets No Longer Allowing Free Refills on Icee YMMV

BTW everyone, the Super Target 10 minutes away from me is NOT AT ALL allowing free refills on donuts out of the bakery case. I paid for one and kept going back for more and then I was escorted out by a security guard, YMMV!!!

Did you try saving the bag from the original donut. If you have the bag, then they should have to fill it with free donuts everytime you go in.

But no Slurpees, so no refills there either. And we're talking ICEEs here, guys, let's stay on topic for once. Geez.

Wait, Denny's Japan?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/7-Eleven#Japan

Japan
7-Eleven in Niigata, Japan.

Japan has more 7-Eleven locations than anywhere else in the world, where they often bear the title of its holding company "Seven & I Holdings". Of the 34,200 stores around the globe, 12,013 of them are located in Japan. 1,577 are in Tokyo alone.

The feel and look of the store is somewhat different from that of the U.S. 7-Elevens. In Japan they offer a wider selection of products and services. Japanese 7-Elevens offer not only food, drinks, and magazines, but also video games and consoles, music CDs, DVDs, digital cardreaders as well as seasonal items like Christmas cakes, Valentine's Day chocolates, and fireworks. Slurpees and Big Gulp super size soft drinks are no longer sold in Japan; these products were not popular when 7-Eleven originally opened in Japan.

On September 1, 2005, Seven & I Holdings Co., Ltd., a new holding company, became the parent company of 7-Eleven, Ito Yokado, and Denny's Japan.

But can you bring in your bag from the week before and still get the free popcorn? If not, AMC sucks!

Re: Targets No Longer Allowing Free Refills on Icee YMMV

Is it just me or do these overseas fast food places spun off of American places often look like they have healthier food?

Some of them do, but places like McDonalds, KFC, Pizza Hut, etc. are still pretty nasty overseas.
