If you're bored of drinking your Slurpee the same way you have for years, good news for you. 7-Eleven is changing it up, hipster style - with new Mason jar mugs with mustache straws.

For only 99 cents, Slurpee lovers in Los Angeles can buy a mustache straw, in four different varieties.

“People in our office have unofficially named the four mustache styles,” said 7-Eleven vice-president of brand innovation and marketing, Laura Gordon. “The British, the handlebar, the Hogan after wrestler Hulk Hogan, and the Swanson, as in Ron Swanson, a character on NBC’s 'Parks and Recreation' sit-com series played by Nick Offerman. I think it will be interesting to see which mustaches sell best."

The Mason jar mugs come in four bright colors, for $2.99.

People are already showing off their new mustaches on Instagram.

Do you wish you could take your own Slurpee selfie? If you're craving one of these in Portland, you hopefully won't have to wait long. While they're currently only available in Los Angeles, 7-Eleven says the mustache straws and Mason jar mugs will be available at most locations across the country over the summer.
