Diet Coke Frost Cherry Slurpee has been removed from shelves, after only a month on sale. 7-Eleven, who stocked the beverage, and The Coca-Cola Company have not said whether the beverage will return. 

A ‘significant number’ of stores had problems with the dispensing quality of the slurpee involving the freezing constituency, according to a joint statement.

“There are no health or safety issues with the product. In keeping with both companies' quality standards, 7-Eleven has decided to remove the product,” the statement said.
