Everyone knows the best and most delicious way to cool yourself off and pick yourself up on a hot summer afternoon is by hitting up 7-Eleven for your favorite Slurpee. This has been the case ever since the Slurpee was invented 50 years ago, when some sodas were placed in a freezer and it resulted in a refreshing slushy consistency.

On Monday, July 11, you can break up your long, sweltering day with a freebie. In honor of Slurpee’s 50th birthday, 7-Eleven is giving away a free small Slurpee to all customers. Stop by your local 7-Eleven from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. to get the goods.

In addition to your freebie, you can celebrate the big 5-0 with limited-time birthday-cake-flavored Slurpees — and other Slurpee products, like birthday-cake Slurpee donuts, Slurpee-flavored candy, Slurpee swirl candy straws, and even Slurpee-flavored ChapStick.

If all that isn't exciting enough, 7-Eleven is also launching NEW Sour Patch Kids Redberry-flavored Slurpees. WHAT?! That's right, the best Sour Patch Kids flavor is combining with your fav cool summer treat.

So, mark your calendar and get excited for a (likely) much-needed Monday pick-me-up.
