7-Eleven will soon celebrate its 97th anniversary!

Wow, 97 years it's been around and you can join in on the big celebration by stopping by your local 7-Eleven and getting yourself a FREE Slurpee.

It's something 7-Eleven fans look forward to every year.

I love 7-Eleven! It brings me back to my childhood. There was one right next to the softball field I used to play at in my town and my Dad would take me to get a Slurpee after every home game. I remember it like it was yesterday! Now I take my kids there all the time.

I would go right down the line and mix every flavor. Cherry is my absolute favorite with Pina Colada a strong second. Another popular flavor...Coca Cola.
