you have no idea how lovely a root beer slurpee is until you have your first one after two years without them.
and i still maintain that slurpees are different between the states and canada. something about the texture, something about the ice. down there it's like styrofoam. here, it's just little pieces of ice that you can suck the juice out of and then chew on what's left. entirely different, i tell you!
(and the canadian version's better.)
