Slurpee Celebrates 40th birthday
It was 40 years ago that Slurpee hit the scene and to celebrate, Seven-Eleven is introducing retro Slurpee cups and flavors. It's also airing original Slurpee radio commercials from the 1960s, and offering prizes and promotions. The company calls Slurpee "the ultimate retro drink," and plans to offer some of the '60s Slurpee flavors like "Gully Washer" to mark the occasion.
In addition, Seven-Eleven is giving away a free music download on all standard Slurpee cups and four grand prize MINI Cooper convertibles, one for each Slurpee decade.
