Slurpee Day. Happy 7-11!!!!

During the summer months in the late 80s early 90s it was intensely hot on the house I grew up in.  We didn't have air conditioning and had to find ways to keep as cool as possible.  I have a lot of memories of my mom getting Coke Slurpee cravings and my dad driving 10 minutes to the nearest 7-11 to get her her fix.  Of course my dad would also get me one and would get a big smile on his face when on the bottom of my Slurpee cup was a baseball disc ala Sportsflix of a player I collected.

The majority of my baseball cards I had as a kid are long gone, but I remember getting super excited about Roger Clemens being on the bottom of my cup one night.

7-11 hasn't done a promotion like this for nearly two decades.

The closest thing that has been produced to resemble the tiny circular discs is a 2013 Panini Hometown Heroes Sportsdisc.

The front of the tiny disc has the sportsflix look to it.

While the back has a quick snapshot of the player's career.

Of course I have two different parallels to these backs. The base and black.  I still need the gold.

What are your favorite Slurpee flavors?


  1. Blue raspberry that I have to get at the local mom and pop store. Don't have a 7-11 nearby :-/

  2. I hadn't had a Slurpee in years, but I did take advantage of the freebee today. Went with Coke.
