17 Foods to Buy at 7-Eleven During the Coronavirus Pandemic

Can't make it to a full grocery store? 7-Eleven has you covered.

In a perfect world, we'd all have an unlimited food budget and plenty of well-stocked grocery stores nearby. But in reality, millions of Americans live in food deserts. And even if you have a grocery store nearby, you might not be able to buy fresh food there on a regular basis. Whether due to finances, distance, or availability, you might find yourself buying food at a convenience store, during the coronavirus pandemic or otherwise—and that's OK!

If you're shopping at 7-Eleven during COVID-19, there are a number of great options you can buy at the convenience store. There are fresh fruits, hard-boiled eggs, and healthy packaged snacks just waiting on the shelves. Here are our favorite 7-Eleven food picks, including both healthy choices and a few treats.

1

Fresh Fruit Cups
