Is the heat this summer too much for you? Cool off today with a free slurpee at 7-Eleven!
Participating locations (make sure to call ahead) are giving away free 7.11 ounce slurpees Sunday from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. to celebrate the convenience store chain's 83rd birthday. After all, it is 7/11, right?
For me, slurpees are nostalgic treats that remind me of childhood -- specifically, riding bikes during the summer with the other kids in my neighborhood and stopping off at the 7-Eleven down the street from my house. To this day, there's nothing quite like a refreshing ice-cold Coke-flavored slurpee to cool me off on a hot summer's day. (Although, I suppose Dr. Pepper-flavored would work, too.)
And, new this month is Goji Berry Cherry. Everybody seems to be jumping on the goji berry health trend these days; so it would make sense that 7-Eleven would incorporate the berries into its ever-popular icy treat (although I'm guessing the high fructose corn syrup cancels out whatever health benefits the antioxidants have).
What's your favorite slurpee flavor? Are you going to get a free slurpee today?
