According to Mashable, the convenience-store chain has inked a partnership with Zynga, makers of a slate of hugely popular Facebook-centric games that includes Farmville and Mafia Wars. Beginning June 1, more than 7,000 stores around the country will offer Zynga-branded items for a six week span, including Farmville Slurpees and Mob Wars ice cream.
