It’s the perfect time to try the new Airheads Xtremes Rainbow Berry Slurpee. Like the candy, the Airheads version of a Slurpee is described as a berry-licious rainbow of fruity, sweetly sour flavor with a jolt of berry Airheads Xtremes flavor in every sip.

“Airheads Day will be an extremely fun celebration for fans of both brands – a sweetly sour Slurpee pairs well with any Airheads candy, especially our limited-edition Airheads Xtremes Bluest Raspberry Bites.”
