That’s right. Slurpee’s Bring Your Own Cup Day is just around the corner, and this year it’s not one, but TWO days in honor of Slurpee’s 50th anniversary. Last year we did a roundup of the most creative ways people took advantage of this glorious day, so be sure to check it out.
Bring Your Own Cup Day is March 18th and 19th (that’s this Friday and Saturday, people) from 11 am to 7 pm at participating 7/11 stores. Mark your calendars. For only $1.50, you can bring any container you want and fill ‘er up. Read all the way to the bottom for the catch.
Need help deciding what flavor to pick? We’ve got you covered.
For the soda lover
You thrive off carbonation and you can’t go a day without that sweet sugar. You have 4 flavors to sample from, but we both know you’ll end up going straight to your favorite drink with no question. Diet Coke Frost With a Splash of Cherry, Pepsi Cherry Vanilla, Dr. Pepper, and Coca-Cola Classic are all great choices for the one looking to stick to the classics.
For the fruit lover
You’re fun and adventurous, so you can deal with a little tang. If you’re going for a fruity Slurpee, you have 10 flavors to choose from. Banana, Blue Raspberry, Wild Cherry, Kiwi Strawberry, Orange, Hawaiian Punch, Lemonade, Pina Colada, Sour Patch Watermelon, and Berry Lime are all great options to drink alone, or to pair together for an unexpected twist.
#SpoonTip: Dragon Fruit is offered regionally, so keep an eye out to see if your 7/11 is one of the lucky retailers.
For the one on a diet
Let’s be real here. Your spring break bod won’t tone itself, so you’ll probably be looking to choose the sugar-free “lite” options. That’s okay, we won’t judge, but you only have one flavor to pick from. Strawberry Banana Lite sounds good… but you might be better off just making your own smoothies at home.
For the one who’s late to the game
You’ve been going to 7/11 since you were a child, but you haven’t been there in a few months (or years). Unfortunately, Slurpee rotates out their flavors, so your favorite might not be there anymore. If it’s Mountain Dew Solar Flare, Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Mountain Dew Blue Shock, Sour Green Apple, Grape, Mango Lite, Cherry Limeade Lite, Watermelon Punch Lite, Mountain Dew Kickstart, or Kiwi Strawberry Lite, you’re outta luck. Try a flavor above for a change.
Like any glorious deal, there are a few rules: your cup of choice has to fit through a 10-inch hole while upright. There has been the occasional rulebreaker who gets away with it, but I’d have a back-up to your vessel to ensure your sweet treat. Your cup also has to be sanitary, watertight, and the only one you have. No sneaking in three extra for those coworkers who were too lazy to leave the office.
