National 7-Eleven Day

National 7-Eleven Day

On July 11, the 7-Eleven Convenience store chain celebrates the whole day. And especially celebrated is their signature, Slurpee.

The Slurpee began in 1966. The machines were already being used to make the Icee. But, they modified those machines and changed the name and advertising to, Slurpee. Name for the sound that the sweet cold drink makes when sucking it through a straw.

Along with Slurpee, may come a “brain freeze,” the term in which 7-Eleven took over meaning an extreme headache brought on by drinking a very cold drink too fast.

Here are a few tips to help if you experience a brain freeze.

  • You can try and press your tongue or thumb against the roof of your mouth
  • Sip warm liquid
  • Try stirring the Slurpee a little to warm it up before eating
  • Keep the cold drink off the roof of your mouth
  • When eating your icy dessert, flip the spoon and it the bottom of the spoon toward the roof of your mouth
