Diet Coke Frost, briefly sold as a Slurpee beverage at 7-Eleven stores, has been canned.
USA Today reports that, just one month after rolling out the Diet Coke Frost Cherry Slurpee, the frozen concoction has been removed from 7-Eleven stores nationally. Coca-Cola and 7-Eleven reportedly said in a joint statement to the newspaper that the drink didn’t freeze correctly.
“A significant number of stores experienced dispensing quality issues involving the product freezing consistency,” the joint statement said.
“In keeping with both companies’ quality standards, 7-Eleven has removed the product,” the statement said.
Executives from both companies declined to discuss the matter further, according to USA Today. It’s unknown if the beverage will ultimately return to 7-Eleven or elsewhere. Coca-Cola had previously announced plans to add other diet flavors to the line later this spring and expand the frozen beverage to other retailers.
Executives from Coke and 7-Eleven noted there are no health or safety issues with the product.
