Free Slurpees on 7/11 for 7-Eleven’s B-Day

By Debbie Schlussel
Today is the 81st birthday of my favorite formerly American retailer, 7-Eleven. And in honor, they are giving out free Slurpees. The store always celebrates its birthday on July 11th or 7/11.
Slurp it.
Read more cool stuff from me about 7-Eleven from its 80th birthday, the 40th anniversary of the Slurpee, and the occasion of 7-Eleven dumping communist Chavez CITGO.
Thank Heaven for 7-Eleven.

debbie you forgot that the hot dogs on the hot dog roller are also 80 years old, lets celebrate the stuff they put in them to make them look ageless

Oh, I wish I would have read this earlier! I have fond memories of riding my bike to 7-11 with a bunch of my friends and I’ll bet I had some of those very first slurpees. Our 7-11 had Cherry and Coke flavored Slurpees and you could get them mixed together.
I also remember the big old fashioned Charms Lollipops displayed next to the register(before they started putting bubble gum in them). I swear they were a 1/2 inch thick and 1 1/2 inch in diameter…okay memory overload.
Those were good times…good times indeed.
