Did you know:
-- Slurpee was invented in 1959 by a Kansas hamburger stand owner using an automobile air conditioner
-- The name "Slurpee" was created in 1967 by an agency director after commenting that it make a "slurp" sound coming through the straw
-- Cola and Cherry are favorite flavors, but blue raspberry and Mt. Dew are catching up
-- 7-Eleven coined the term brainfreeze in 1994 to communicate the somewhat painful joy a Slurpee drink brings
-- Today, close to 13 million Slurpee drinks are slurped each month.
