When it comes to food mashups, donuts seem to be many chefs go-to starting point.

First came the cronut. We’ve also seen plenty of donuts used in cheeseburgers, sandwiches and rolls.

But 7-Eleven is now infusing the flavor of its popular Slurpee into a baked sweet.

Introducing the Wild Cherry Slurpee Donut—it’s a bright pink cake donut, topped with a wild cherry-flavored icing, and covered in sparkling sugar crystals that Brand Eating says may give the treat an "ice-like crunch."

But how does it really taste? Washington Post says both have major “staining power” but the Slurpee was undeniably sweeter. However, the taster couldn’t help but admit that both the beverage and baked good “boast a certain eau de Robitussin.”

The donut costs 99 cents but you can score it plus a medium Slurpee of the same Wild Cherry flavor profile for just $2.

Chew on This will be chowing down on this brightly colored confection soon and we’ll let you know how it really tastes.
