In 2021, 7-Eleven sent the first Slurpee® drink to space.
7-Eleven began introducing Slurpee® collectors’ cups in 1972. Special Slurpee drink cups have featured monsters, rock ‘n’ roll stars, and endangered species. 7-Eleven also offered surprise Slurpee cups with false bottoms, free prizes and peel-off game pieces. How many collector cups do you own?
In the late 1950s, Omar Knedlik's soda fountain at his restaurant broke. He stashed some soda pop in the freezer and had the idea to turn frozen soda into a beverage. He used parts from an automobile air conditioner to build a simple frozen beverage machine. Since then, Slurpee has become a beloved beverage of millions, a pop culture icon, and 7-Eleven's most well-known proprietary brand. From its beginning, with kooky flavor names like Fulla Bulla, Blue Blunder and Awa Awa Ukulele, Slurpee® has been keeping it "cool" for generations.
