Pumpkin spice season has already begun, but if you’re still feeling the last heat waves of summer, you might want to cool off with a different refreshment. Now you can soothe your sweet tooth and beat the heat with 7-Eleven’s new Nerds-flavored Slurpee, but it’s only available for a limited time so act fast.

7-Eleven’s latest special flavor is a delicious tribute to one of your favorite childhood candies. In true Nerds fashion it’s a blend of two of the most popular classic flavors, Grape and Strawberry. The tangy flavor concoction of pink and purple Nerds makes for a pleasant lavender color.

“Slurpee customers, particularly younger ones, love to create fun frozen treats by mixing their favorite candy and Slurpee flavors,” Jacob Barnes, 7-Eleven proprietary beverages product director, said in a press release. “When we started hearing social media chatter that people were suggesting we come out with a NERDS Slurpee, we thought it was a great idea. And, if Slurpee fans want to mix their NERDS Slurpee drinks with NERDS candy, even better. NERDS candy is one of the best-selling non-chocolate candy brands in our stores.”

The new Nerds Slurpee flavor is available for a limited time only, so act fast if you want to get a taste.
