There's been a breakthrough in Slurpee technology. Convenience store giant 7-Eleven is set two unveil the Dual-Chamber Slurpee next month. The new drink has two flavors inside one cup, and with a special straw, you can either drink them one at a time or drink both flavors at the same time.

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Okay, it's almost summer, so you will have an opportunity, if you like, to try a new cold drink. And our last word in business is the Dual-Chamber Slurpee.

USA Today has the scope on this innovation, coming soon from 7-Eleven. The new Slurpee, with two different flavors in one cup, and a special double straw with a valve that allows you to switch between flavors in the same cup. You can also drink both flavors, like Blue Raspberry and Summertime Lime, at the same time.

RENEE MONTAGNE, host:

Oh.

INSKEEP: I can't wait for summer.

(Soundbite of laughter)

INSKEEP: It's coming in June.

That's the business news on MORNING EDITION, from NPR News. I'm Steve Inskeep.

MONTAGNE: And I'm Renee Montagne.
