Sometimes you just take things for granted. Birthdays, anniversaries. Well, this year, we’re here for you. This year, you will not forget. This year, you will get your free small Slurpee from 7-Eleven in celebration of July 11 because you deserve it godd*mmit, and this year, You. Will. Not. Yield.
And what will you get for venturing to your local convenience store on this, the 86th birthday of the popular chain? (Well, besides the free Slurpee.) A free Slurpee that’s bigger than last year! According to USA Today, guests who visit all participating 7-Eleven locations tomorrow from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. will get to enjoy sucking down almost double the Slurpee – that is, 12 whole ounces versus previous years’ 7.11 ounces.
The reason has something to do with Moms wanting lids for their children, which the smaller cups unfortunately didn’t have. But what’s suffering a few minutes in line behind a few slightly more sugar-crazed brats when you’re getting 42% more free Slurpee? Exactly.
