Although the first Slurpee was invented entirely by accident when some sodas were left too long in a freezer and became slushy, the accidental icy creation has been a hit with Americans for nearly 50 years now.

On July 11, otherwise known as 7-Eleven Day (get it?) the convenience store retail chain is inviting you to join it in celebrating its 89th birthday and Slurpee’s 50th birthday by giving away free 12-ounce Slurpees.

7-Eleven anticipates handing out more than 9 million free small Slurpees from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on July 11.

You can try any of the available Slurpee flavors, including Birthday Cake Slurpee, which is a combination of vanilla ice cream flavor and birthday cake flavor.

“Every year, 7-Eleven Day gives us an opportunity to have some fun, say thank-you to our customers and celebrate our birthday Slurpee style,” Laura Gordon, 7-Eleven vice president of marketing and brand innovation, said in a statement.

You can also pick up Slurpee-branded and flavored items, including birthday donuts, cotton candy, lollipops, marshmallow pops, candy straws, ChapStick, Pop Tarts, beach towels, socks and T-shirts. insulated beverage holders and other items — though inventory will vary from store to store.

If you purchase seven Slurpee drinks from July 12-18 (Slurpee Week) and then scan the 7-Eleven mobile app, you will be eligible to receive an additional 11 free Slurpee drinks.
