Can You Say Groovy?

The first Slurpee poured in Canada was in Calgary in 1969. Can you say Groovy? Go on then... say it.

FACTS, HISTORY, & SLURPERIFIC TIDBITS

More than 40% of all Slurpee drinks are sold during the summer months. You don't need to be Einstein to know why.

The Slurpee straw moonlights as a spoon so you can enjoy every last drop of your Slurpee, effortless, effortlessl, effortlessly.

7-Eleven was called so because of its original hours of operation. When it changed its hours of operation to 24 hours, the idea of changing the name to 24-Seven never came up, but if it had, we’d be a bigger part of street slang, yo.

The Slurpee was introduced in the 60s. (Now you know why we like featuring such bright colours.)

The first Slurpee was invented by a Kansas hamburger stand owner, Omar Knedlik. The Knedlik didn’t sound so delicious so the Slurpee name change occurred shortly thereafter.

Slurpee got its name during a brainstorming session. (Shouldn’t that of been a brain-freezing session?) In any event, years ago someone commented about the slurp sound that came via the straw while enjoying the frozen treat. Hence, Slurpee.

Winnipeg is the Slurpee capital of the world. Funnily enough, Winnipeggers have the world’s most refined taste buds.

A few years back, Slurpee coined the term brain freeze. If you don’t know what a brain freeze is, go have a Slurpee and drink it fast. (Please don’t sue us.)

Slurpee drinks are served at a bone-chilling -2.2 degrees Celsius. All right, bone chilling may be a bit of an exaggeration, but let’s just say that these frozen drinks are pretty darn cold.

DRINK SLURPEE RESPONSIBLY

For instance, we don’t recommend you drink your Slurpee during an avalanche, but hey, that’s just us. And remember, brain freeze happens. So slurp, don’t gulp. It’s a Slurpee, not a Big Gulp. (That’s like comparing apples to oranges — which, much like Big Gulp, we also happen to carry.)
