When Worlds Collide, Vol. 3

 When Worlds Collide, Vol. 3

There are approximately 9,100 7-Elevens in North America, serving a population of approximately 600 million people.

Conversely, over 5,000 7-Elevens pepper (and overly salt) Taiwan, a country with approximately 24 million people.

On this small Asian island, the convenience chain provides hand-crafted cappuccinos, seaweed-flavored potato chips, and huge vats of hardboiled eggs swimming in soy sauce and tea.

Conversely, U.S. 7-Elevens provide Slurpees, scratch-off lottery tickets and sweaty hot dogs.

Thank heaven, indeed.
