Slurpee aficionados go ahead and mark your calendars.
7-Eleven is offering fans of the sugary, slushy drink the opportunity to bring “anything remotely resembling a cup” to the chain and fill it with their choice of Slurpee on March 18 and 19.
The second annual “Bring your own cup” event is being held in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Slurpee drink.
But before you rinse off an old trashcan or grab a bucket from under the sink, there are a few rules about what you can fill with Slurpee.
“Each person can only bring in one cup-like container, which must fit upright through an in-store display with a 10-inch diameter hole,” 7-Eleven said in a statement. “Cups cannot be more than 9 inches wide and 11 inches tall and must be leak-proof, safe and sanitary.”
So that means no “trash bags, kiddy pools or kitchen sinks,” according to 7-Eleven.
Wonder if they’ve had people bring those in the past?
For $1.50 those looking for a sugar fix can fill their cups between 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on those days, Laura Gordon, vice president of marketing and brand innovation said in a statement.
“We saw just how creative Slurpee fans can get during the first BYOCup Day,” Gordon said. “They filled drums, kettles, fishbowls, helmets and teapots. I can’t wait to see what they bring this year.”
