Pretty amusing that the bottles are labeled "7-11" instead of "7-Up". In avoiding one trademark they stepped on another. (I'm guessing so, anyway.)

It's actually unlikely a trademark violation. The company that owns 7-11 probably did not - to my recollection - create a drink. You have to actually register different types of trademarks. So for example, I could register the name of a game and you could register the name of a drink and we would be fine. Just and FYI.
