All fans of Slurpee will delight in the iconic drink and take SLURPfies to the next level with these fun ‘staches that come in four different designs.
Did you know that Slurpee was an accidental creation from a broken soda fountain? Omar Knedly, an American businessman, and inventor created machines that produce the so-called slushy drink from that accident.
“Slurpee” was first introduced in the market in the 1950s as “Icee”. To give the product a unique and catchy sound among consumers, 7-Eleven coined the term “Slurpee” in the 1960s. Since then, 7-Eleven stores exclusively sold Slurpee and was then only available for local consumption in the United States.
In 1984, Slurpee was introduced in the Philippines. During that time, Philippine Seven Corporation, the local franchisor of global chain store brand 7-Eleven, opened its first store in the country, and has been serving new and classic flavors like Fuji Apple, Raspberry, and Bubblegum. However due to popular demand, Classic Cola Blast is back for customers to enjoy along with the new Watermelon Lime in all stores serving Slurpee.
Be quick and head on to 7-Eleven then grab your own Slurpee Mustache Straw just by adding P49 when you buy any size of Slurpee. Strike your best bigote pose, and #LetsSLURPfie!
