Who doesn’t like a good old-fashioned Slurpee? When it’s gone it just leaves you wanting more of its sugary sweet goodness. It’s hard to believe that the iconic drink created back in 1966 has turned 50 years old. The luscious treat sold on 7Eleven stores right along side it’s predecessor ICEE on a non compete clause that allowed 7Eleven to sell the slushy drink. The Slurpee name was created by a 7Eleven Agency Director named Bob Stanford, which was the sound a person made while drinking the drink.
With the drinks popularity, Slurpee has its own full length song called “Dance The Slurp” now mind you it may not be a Grammy nominated hit but the track was available for free on 45″ vinyl at 7Eleven sells for a cool $50 on Ebay.
