Slurpee Day – Happy 85th Birthday 7-Eleven

 

Celebrate 7-Eleven’s birthday with a free 7.11 oz. Slurpee at 7-Eleven today between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. (while supplies last) and get your sugar rush on.

Just ask for this freebie, grab a cup and enjoy a little brain freeze on a hot summer day.

7-Eleven now has their summer flavors available in low-cal and lite.

Aside from the regular list of Slurpee flavors, 7-Eleven is featuring brand new flavors this summer including:
 

  • Watermelon Lime in June
  • Lemon Crème and Sugar-free Strawberry Banana in July
  • Orange Xplosion and Sugar-free Cherry Limeade in August
  • Sugar-free Winter White from October through December

 
7-Eleven Slurpee Fun Facts [1]

  • In 1967 the ICEE became known as the “Slurpee.” The name was created by 7-Eleven agency director, Bob Standford, for the sound made when drinking the frozen drink.
     

  • In 2004, 7-Eleven created an edible Slurpee straw.
     

  • Winnipeg, Manitoba was crowned the Slurpee Capital of the World for the thirteenth time in a row in 2012.
     

  • In 2007, as part of the Kwik-E-Mart promotion for the feature film The Simpsons Movie, Slurpees at 7-Elevens were renamed “Squishees” and sold in special collector cups.
     

  • In Australia, free Slurpees are given away on November 7 because it is the 7th day of the 11th month.
     

  • Most Slurpee flavors are certified kosher “parve” as well as halal. The Diet Pepsi flavor uses sodium caseinate as an anti-freezing agent, giving it the status of kosher dairy. Which flabors are not kosher? The Pina Colada, Twizzler Strawberry, Tropicana Grape Wild Strawberry and Monster Black flavors.

  1. I grew up with 7 Elevens but do not have any near me now. I miss them especially the slurpees.
