Celebrate 7-Eleven Day with a Free Slurpee

on

Although I’m not a huge carbonated beverage drinker, Slurpees bring back childhood memories. When I walked by a nearby 7-Eleven the other day and saw this poster on the window, I was reminded that Monday July 11 is 7-Eleven Day! And, you know what that means… FREE Slurpees (at participating locations, of course)!!

So, mark your calendars and stop by a 7-Eleven on Monday for your complimentary 7.11oz Slurpee drink. While you’re at it, grab a Birthday Donut too. I believe they’re like on promotion for 3 for $2. Or grab a hot dog since July is also National Hot Dog month.Meanwhile, let’s amuse ourselves with some fun facts on the Slurpee:

  • Early prototypes for the Slurpee machine made use of an automobile air conditioning unit.
  • When Slurpee first hit the market, it wasn’t self-serve. The machine was behind the counter and the clerk served the product to you.
  • Sugar is the anti-freezing agent in most Slurpee drinks.
  • American Slurpee is injected with air. Canadian Slurpee is not.
  • Half of all Slurpee drinks are purchased between the hours of 4 and 11 p.m.
  • In 2004, 7-Eleven created an edible Slurpee straw.
  • Slurpee was “invented” when some sodas were put in a freezer to cool them down — and they became all slushy.
  • The scientific name for BrainFreeze is Sphenopalatine Ganglioneuralgia.
  • Pressing your tongue against the roof of your mouth is a known cure for brainfreeze.

    Slurpees are the go-to treat when someone in out house is sick. As an occasional treat (Glee night) you just can’t beat them!
