If you’re in Thailand, you simply have to visit a 7-Eleven outlet.
There are so many things that can be found here, including hot meals, drinks, snacks and other travel necessities.
Plus, since it opens 24 hours per day and 7 days per week, 7-Eleven automatically becomes the go-to place for travellers and locals alike.
There are over 8,000 7-Eleven convenience stores in Thailand, of which half are in Bangkok. That said, the biggest store is located in Pattaya, boasting 2-storeys and futuristic display features! UwU
Most importantly, the leading convenience store provides you snacks which you can only buy in Thailand with the cheapest price! Let’s take a look:
1. Betagen’s Other Flavours
Forget Vitagen or Yakult. When you’re in Thailand, make sure you try Betagen’s various flavours, such as Banana, Strawberry and Orange.
This tangy yogurt drink comes from Thailand, which is why you can only find the other flavours in this country.
2. Banana Cakes
Banana cakes are big in Thailand, so there are many variations of this on-the-go dessert.
If you’re secretly a fan of Tokyo Banana’s cake, then try Lepan’s version, which is not overly sweet and has the same texture as the more expensive counterpart.
3. Koko Crunch Bar
Koko Crunch is usually eaten in a bowl with milk, however, 7-Eleven Thailand offers a unique addition of the cereal snack, which is the Koko Crunch Bar.
4. Sticky Rice Burger
Another speciality of 7-Eleven Thailand is the sticky rice burger! They’re kind of like Family Mart’s Fried Rice Onigiri but with added flavours.
The choices available include grilled pork, basil pork, as well as fried chicken.
5. Edible Insects
At one glance, these look like bag of chips. But when you look again, you’ll realise that they’re actually edible insects. Revolutionary.
Grab a few to bring home because it will definitely come in handy! Pour them into your friend’s lunch or drop a couple into your mom’s soup and watch everyone freak out 😛
6. Instant Hot Meals
Thailand’s 7-Eleven has the best selections of on-the-go hot meals, perfect for those who are travelling. If you’re in a hurry, you can even ask the cashier to heat them up for you.
Thailand 7-Eleven offers an array of sumptuous sandwiches that will appease your grumbling stomach and boost your appetite.
The convenience store’s most popular sandwich offering is the Croque Monsieur, which is served with 3 types of cheese (Parmesan, Cheddar and Cream).
8. Local Desserts
Last but not least, 7-Eleven Thailand is also the best because it offers traditional Thai desserts like Sticky Rice Pudding with Longan, Sago with Black Bean, Mung Bean soup and even Sago with Corn in Coconut milk!
Try the one by Ezy Sweet, which has a rich texture, fluffy, and taste naturally sweet.
Bonus: If you’re lucky, you might be able to meet a wild snake too =P
So there you have it. 7-Eleven Thailand offers so many items, which can easily contest a Family Mart store.
