7-11 Holds 2nd 'Bring Your Own Cup Day' Celebrating Frozen Drink's 50th Birthday
 

On Friday and Saturday (8/19-8/20), customers can pay $1.50 to use their own container to hold the beverage. Receptacles must be leak-proof, food-safe and fit upright into a 10-inch-diameter store display.
Last year, my kids filled up 2 large pickle jars (I keep them for bacon grease and such) and we are having the perfect weather here for this.

Bring on the brain freeze!

Huh? I thought slurpee is regularly $1.50 a piece.

You can't normally fill up pickle jars for $1.50

I can make my own slurpees for 1/5 the cost!

I got the text about this earlier today, and had a slurpee craving as I drove by a 7-11. I felt silly just using a 32 oz cup when everyone else in the store was filling up big Tupperware containers and the like.

I have a cup that I got from 7-11 more than 20 years ago. Maybe I should bring that.

Nah. I don't need 32 oz of frozen sugar water.

I'm old enough to remember when 7-11 sold Icees, not Slurpees. Icees (the cup had red and turquoise stripes and a cartoon bear) only came in cola and cherry flavor, but they were infinitely better than Slurpees. Sometimes being an old woman is better. :lol:

You sure you're not remembering the chain of convenience stores called Highs? They had icees, and 7-11s only had icees for a brief time in 1965 at limited locations. I didn't think that you're that old.

I was born in 1965. :lol: I definitely remember Icees from 7-11.

I wish I had your memory skills. 7-11 has not had icees since 1965.

Looks like 7/11 never had "Icees" as the agreement was they would call them something else, and the Icee company was founded in 1965...(per wiki)

Icee is the Go Bots of frozen beverages.

In my memory they had them. I know they sold Icees at K-mart too, but we never shopped there much. Maybe I'm thinking of a different convenience store, but in the Kansas City area in the late 60s/early 70s, the two main ones were QuikTrip, U-Totem, and 7-Eleven.

From another source, 7-11 did briefly sell Icees in 100 stores in 1965, but then quickly worked the deal and "invented" Slurpees.

For me it was Highs and 7-11, and they were almost literally on every corner.

I remember the debates in elementary school about the merits of our two choices, and they all centered around Icee versus Slurpee.
