Slurpee®

Loved by everyone from tots to adults, Slurpee® is more than a frozen drink. It’s a lifestyle.

The Cold Facts

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.
