On July 11, 7-Eleven Day, participating locations offer a free Slurpee to customers from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m to celebrate 50 years of sweet slurping.

Slurpees and more on tap

The Birthday Cake Slurpee will be offered at participating stores. It's the perfect combination of traditional birthday cake and vanilla ice cream flavor.

Select stores will carry Slurpee products and snacks including a Birthday Cake Slurpee donut, Slurpee flavored candy, Slurpee Swirl Candy Straws, Slurpee-flavored ChapStick and more.

Look for the new Sour Patch Redberry Slurpee.

A sip of Slurpee history

7-Eleven introduced its iconic frozen carbonated beverage in 1966. The next year, the company's advertising director coined the word "Slurpee" to describe the sound the drink made traveling through the straw. Since then, more than 7.4 billion Slurpee drinks have been slurped.
