(Newser) – 7-Eleven has announced it will begin delivery service in five US cities in an effort to "redefine convenience," as one executive puts it in L.A. Biz. So what does redefined convenience look like? The Chicago Tribune reports that for $20, 7-Eleven and new partner DoorDash will bring you a "Date Night Pack," which includes chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, a chocolate bar, a Red Bull, gum, and condoms. Should your date night not involve pajamas and Netflix, there's also a $15 "Hangover Pack" with a pain reliever, Gatorade, a pepperoni pizza, and a turkey sandwich.

7-Eleven delivery is available now in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago and will be available soon in Boston and Washington DC, the Tribune reports. According to L.A. Biz, more than 200 7-Eleven stores are participating, and DoorDash will charge a $2.99 delivery fee to start. But that will go up in the near future. But 7-Eleven's famous Slurpees are not on the delivery menu, as DoorDash hasn't figured out how to deliver them before they melt. "We're working toward that, but we're not there yet," a 7-Eleven spokesperson tells the Tribune.
