"7-Eleven Day has become the busiest day of the year for 7-Eleven stores as millions of both existing and new customers flock to our stores to celebrate their favorite frozen drink and other special food deals", Raj Kapoor, senior vice-president for fresh food and proprietary beverages, said in a statement. "Fifty years ago, that meant introducing America to Slurpee, 7-Eleven's beloved brand". Warning: Popular flavors may run out as the day goes on, so head in early if you've got specific cravings.
The iconic Slurpee turns 50 this year, so celebrate by visiting 7-Eleven on Thursday, July 11, because it's 7-Eleven Day 2019 and you can enjoy a free small Slurpee! "This year we hope to expand the party outside our stores, as Slurpee drink-lovers share photos of them and their birthday Slurpee drinks".
The convenience store chain announced they'll also be hooking it up with free Slurpees on July 12 through the 7NOW app.
You can totally make a lunch out of it, too, because participating 7-Eleven stores will be selling $1 hot dogs, cherry Slurpee-flavored cookies, chicken tenders and pizza slices.
Oh thank heaven once again for July 11.
