We are the (Slurpee) Champions…AGAIN!

 

Give yourself a pat on the back if you’ve been Slurpee-ing it up for the past two decades.

For the 20th year in a row, Manitoba has been crowned the Slurpee Capital of the World. That’s two decades where Manitoba has had the highest average number of Slurpee cups sold per store in a region.

In honour of 7-Eleven Day (Thursday, July 11th), they’ll be giving away 900,000 free small birthday-sized Slurpees across the country in special 7-Eleven Day cups featuring photos of Slurpee fans.

A few interesting facts you may want to wow non-Winnipeggers with:

  • Slurpee is the number one beverage served to women in Winnipeg’s maternity wards in the summer time
  • Instead of giving flowers, people meet and greet friends and family at the airport by giving them Slurpee drinks
  • Slurpee is often served at summer weddings
  • People consume Slurpee drinks for breakfast year round
  • As of July 2013, Winnipeg plays host to one of the top three Slurpee stores: Portage Avenue at #2!
