Really? Today is Free Slurpie Day?

o_O:m_drink:

The Slurpee’s biggest fans aren’t American



They’re American-made, but no one knocks back Slurpees quite as fervently as Canadians.

For 20 years and counting, the province of Manitoba has been crowned the Slurpee capital of the world. Not even the harshest winter in decades could deter Canadians from their beloved frozen slush.

The people of Winnipeg love the slush so much they voted to rename a road “Slurpee Way.”

Slurpee season, Barnes said, is clearly year-round.

It’s 7-Eleven Day, which means free Slurpees for all. Here’s what you need to know about America’s favorite slush

Guess I better get my butt over there - I wonder if the free slurpees are all day or just until noon?

mal - don't forget to go get your free Slurpee!
it's probably those icky lemon/lime slurpees that are free. The cherry is hidden away in a back room, as valuable and mysterious as leprechaun gold.

I am in one of my provinces provinal office locations where I am using the computer for job stuff and their is a young family both with strollers and one small kid in each and to keep the kids happy they are circling the office area and are not stopping and have been doing this for like 15 min. it reminds me of the semi trailers in trucks\Maximum overdrive when the semis are circling around the gas pumps. I love it when random things remind me of Stephen king. lol

did we all go and get one? I did not I forgot about it. what flavors did they have
It seems like there was a coca-cola one, some blue raspberryflavor, and cherry THE BEST ONE, the lemon/lime crap-on-myself flavor. I think that was it? Anyone else remember the flavors?

Okay, I just looked this up. Slurpees didn't have lemon/lime. Apparently I was drinking some faux poser at another gas station.

:lol:
Now, Gatorade originally was a putrid lemon/lime and I used to have to drink it when I would get dehydrated as a kid. I hated that stuff and still will pick any other flavor of Gatorade offered before I will drink that foul concoction!:eagerness:
