Recently, the good folks from Sprite dropped by the VIBE magazine office to share the latest from the partnership from LeBron James and Sprite. The Sprite team assured we’d be among the first to taste the new exclusive drinks and that it would be a fun surprise. When they showed up with the new Sprite 6 Mix Slurpee, things turned up in the room (as much as they could during office hours, mid-week).

Make sure you get your hands on a cup this drink inspired by the first, limited-edition Sprite flavor developed in partnership with LeBron. Combining the refreshing taste of traditional Sprite with natural cherry and orange flavors, the thirst-quenching frozen treat is just in time for summer.
