Wohoo! Grab a jumbo hotdog, pay for it. Rake in some nachos and squeeze in that cheese sauce, pay for it…go grab a glass and slush in that chilled soda drink from the Slurpee machine…for free!

Hundreds rushed inside 7-Eleven stores to get their free drink which comes in different bubbly flavors and summer colors, blue, strawberry pink, mint green..yeah, summer colors I tell ya.

7-Eleven turns 84 today, while in other parts of the world, 84 and a day years old. Convenience store chains plan to give 5 million Slurpees in 7.11 ounces each. Senior Vice-President Jesus Delgado-Jenkins boasts that that’s the most Slurpees the company has given in a day. About three million were given out two years ago.

“Free is magic,” says psychology Professor Barry Schwartz of Swarthmore College. “If you offer something for free, people will gladly spend money to get it.”

7-Eleven is part of an international chain of convenience stores operating under Seven-Eleven Japan Co. Ltd., which is owned by Seven & I Holdings Co. of Japan. 7-Eleven is the largest operator, franchisor and licensor of convenience stores with more than 39,000 outlets, beating McDonald’s by more than 1,000 retail stores.
