This isn’t the first time that Stripes gas stations in the Texas hill country have stocked cups with the infamous Selena’s face on them. However, this time, the cups with not only boast a new design, but also new Slurpee flavors. Stripes convenience stores have officially released that the last two Selena cups in their four-cup series created to honor the infamous Tejano singer.
As the 25-year anniversary of Selena’s tragic murder approaches, the gas station has partnered with Selena’s sister, Suzette Quintanilla. Suzette has been instrumental in not only creating designs for the Selena cups, but in creating new Slurpee flavors as well. The new flavors will consist of sour cherry, lime and salt and will all be colored purple, to honor Selena’s favorite color.
Her sister Suzette explains in a release that “Selena loved cherry-flavored drink packets mixed with salt growing up,” “I have such great memories of us riding our bikes after school to get Slurpee drinks, so being able to create a Selena-inspired Slurpee drink for just 25 cents is our way to say ‘Thank You’ to all her fans that are remembering her with so much love.”
