Happy belated birthday to that partially-frozen delight, the 7-11 Slurpee! The tasty refreshment celebrated its 40th birthday this past Monday with free samples to 7-11 customers (if only I had known!). The Slurpee, oddly enough, originated at a Dairy Queen store in Kansas where the owner sold partially-frozen soft drinks. That store owner developed the Icee machine to make the slushy drinks more consistent. When a 7-11 store owner saw the Icee machine, he knew he wanted one in his 7-11, and the rest was history.
Anyone know how to do The Slurp?
