Until now, Buzz Cola, KrustyO's cereal and Squishees existed only on television.

Now, some shoppers in Colorado, Texas and elsewhere can pick up those items and more during a stop to a 7-Eleven store.

Dallas-based 7-Eleven has turned a dozen of its stores, including at least one in Denver (at 3rd and Broadway), into Kwik-E-Marts, the fictional convenience stores of "The Simpsons" fame.

Those stores, and most of the 7,000 or so other 7-Elevens in North America, will sell the themed items.

The monthlong promotion has been rumored a long time, all part of a campaign to hype this month's opening of "The Simpsons Movie."

The big-screen debut for the long-running television cartoon opens in theaters July 27.

The U.S. locations where a 7-Eleven store has been transformed into a Kwik-E-Mart are Denver; New York City; Chicago; Dallas; Burbank, California; Los Angeles; Henderson, Nevada; Orlando, Florida; Seattle; Mountain View, California; and Bladensburg, Maryland.
