These Local Drinks are at the Nearest Convenience Store

August 28, 2015

7-Eleven is a treasure trove of random finds. They may stock run-of-the-mill, everyday items that you’d see in any grocery, but sometimes there are cool gems to discover. Amongst the tons of bottles lining the shelves, this set grabbed our attention right away: the bright colors, neatly designed label, and glass bottle stood out so much that, at first glance, we weren’t even sure it was local. Upon inspection, we were damn proud that they were. The Locally Blended Juice Drinks set highlights all natural flavors made with fruits from various locations in the country.

The labels even plot out a Philippine map, with pinpoints of provincial locations where the fruits were harvested from. Their current range includes fruits we love but rarely see in juice boxes or bottles, all with kitschy yet fun names: You’ve Dalandan it Again, Kamias You Are, Mangosteenie Minie Mo, and Tamarind My Bell. Loving local? So are we.

Have you seen these juices around? What’s your favorite 7/11 find? Tell us below!

    Too much sugar content in one bottle! I would love to indulge in it but my sugar limit can’t take what’s in the bottle.

    Tried all o’these and yeah they are too sweet, too bad it tastes almost like the real thing. 🙁

  3. […] Here in Purveyr, we’re big supporters of anything local. So we were delighted to see this new beverage, “Locally” blended juice drinks. It comes in bright colored packaging which you will definitely not miss. The juices are made of real fruit so these are all natural flavors. In fact, at the back of their labels there are maps indicating where they came from. Currently, it’s available in 4 flavors with pun intended names such as You’ve Dalandan it Again, Kamias You Are, Mangosteenie Minie Mo, and Tamarind My Bell. Next time you grab a drink, why not give this local and healthy option a try? Source: Pepper […]
