    Just like some smaller music store chains have boycotted groups who only make their music available at Best Buy, there is a movement among smaller convenience chains not to handle Pepsi flavored "slurpee" mix or Bag-in-Box as a way to protest being shutout of this new Apple Flavored concoction called "Frog". I can see their point. Pepsi and 7/11 are spending all kinds of cash together to get people to go into 7/11 to try Frog, yet smaller stores aren't able to handle it too. Kind of seems unfair. It's the same backlash Pepsi used to get from small, independent pizza shops when it owned Pizza Hut. They conveniently decided to break off Pizza Hut into Tricon to try to diffuse this backlash.
