We serve up our #4 beverage performer of the year with a look at the biggest name in convenience store retailing, 7-Eleven.  On May 8, the chain debuted self-chilling cans for its new Fizzics Sparkling Cold Brew Coffee at 15 stores in the Los Angeles area.

“Because the self-chilling can technology is so groundbreaking, we wanted to introduce it with a super innovative beverage,” said Tim Cogil, 7-Eleven director of private brands. “Sparkling coffee sodas met all the criteria. Previously available in some coffee shops, a handful of exclusive canned carbonated brews began showing up last summer. Fizzics will be the first that can be chilled on demand, bringing a new level of convenience to customers who want to enjoy a chilled drink whenever and wherever they are.”
