7-Eleven is giving away free Slurpees to customers who stop by participating locations between the hours of 11 a.m. and 7 p.m today.
The free icy drinks are meant to celebrate the convenience store’s 85th birthday. Tracing back to 1927, 7-Eleven originally opened in front of a Dallas ice house.

“This year we expect to give away 7 million Slurpee drinks, more than ever before,” 7-Eleven President and CEO Joe DePinto said in a press release on the chain’s site. He said he expects to beat last year’s offer by 2 million.
But anyone hoping to gulp down one of these tasty frozen treats had better hurry: 7-Eleven reports they will only be available while supplies last.
