Farmville Gets Official… Ice Cream & Slurpees

Social gaming phenomenon/scourge Farmville is about to invade your personal space every time you walk into a US 7-Eleven store, with publishers Zynga plastering 7000 stores with Farmville junk.

Just like every trip into Facebook is interrupted by pointless crop growth updates, soon innocent pit-stops for chewing gum and Coke will be interrupted by a promotion for the game, where players can buy branded items from the store and receive in-game items in return.

You can see two of those items here: a Farmville Slurpee and a tub of Farmville ice cream, with the terrifying slogan “SCOOP, EARN, PLAY” sounding a little too much like “ARBEIT MACHT FREI” for comfort.

The promo kicks off on June 1, and runs for six weeks.
