Hey, everyone! Happy Monday! ♡
All throughout the summer of this year, I’ve been writing a lot about how we can beat the heat. And one of the most fun ways to do just that is, you guessed it, eating and drinking. I’ve already given a few examples of some of my favorite desserts to eat and drink in the summer: ice cream, milkshakes, and fruit smoothies. But there is one particular option that I’ve failed to mention; slurpees!
Also known as slushies, slurpees are drinks made out of tiny ice crystals and flavored with a sweet, fruity, syrup. It’s kind of like the hybrid of a snow cone and a smoothie. This common cool beverage is a summer favorite in many western countries.
You may be wondering how slurpees could be relevant to today. Let me explain. In the United States, July 11 is considered National Free Slurpee Day. Why, you ask? Well, one of the most popular convenience convenience stores, 7-Eleven, celebrated its 95th anniversary today! And as a special treat for their loyal customers, they decided to give out free small slurpees from July 1-11.
Me and Goodmommy were originally going to stop by after we completed some of our weekly errands to get one for ourselves, but then we found out that this year 7-Eleven put an unexpected twist on this seemingly irresistible deal: the only way that you could redeem a free slurpee is to download the 7-Rewards app.
When me and Goodmommy found out about that small detail, we were like … yeah, no. But she did say that she could take me to Wawa—another example of a gas station convenience store that sells groceries, snacks, and a variety of beverages—to get one of their smoothies, instead. So, that’s something that we may be doing in the near future.
If any of you are fans of 7-Eleven, I hope you enjoyed a free slurpee of your own. But even if you aren’t, make sure to get yourself a little something this summer. After all, we could all use a cool, sweet treat once in a while.
LET’S CHAT~Have you ever heard of and/or tasted a slurpee? If so, did you like it? And if not, have you ever tasted anything similar?
Have a beautiful and blessed day, everybody! See you next time! Peace in! ♡
