Tuesday is 7/11 and this day means all participating 7-Eleven stores will hand out free small Slurpees until the supplies run out.
Customers who get a free slurpee can choose from an array of flavors, including the limited time only cotton candy flavor. On Free Slurpee Day, you can go into any 7-Eleven between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. and get a free small Slurpee. The chain is celebrating its 90th year, founded in 1927.
7-Eleven's big birthday bash will continue all week long.
During the annual birthday bash, 7-Eleven will also offer a sneak peek at its new Slurpee cup design with colorful bubbles and swirls. The next year, its advertising director coined the name Slurpee to describe the sound the drink makes traveling through a straw, according to the company.
More than 40 percent of all Slurpee drinks are sold during June, July and August. 7-Eleven operates, franchises and licenses more than 10,700 stores in North America.
