Slurpee Facts

Canadians purchase over 30 million Slurpees every year

The average slurpee drinker age is 29 years

Manitoba is the "Slurpee Capital" of the world! The 7-Eleven stores in Manitoba sell an average of 8,300 Slurpee drinks per store each month, which makes this Province the world leader in Slurpee sales.

7-Eleven introduced the Slurpee to Canada in 1969

The makers of the syrup for the market of frozen carbonated beverages include the Coca-Cola and Pepsi-Cola companies.

Competition for the Slurpee includes the Froster, Glacial Freeze, Icee's, Slush puppies, squishies, and Thirst Busters.

Is there a difference between American Slurpee's and Canadian Slurpee's? Yes!

The Canadian product is heavier and wetter, the difference being that the American product is injected with air and is therefore drier. This is why you can feel that itch in the back of the throat when you drink it--that's the air bubbles. The American stores have been using Cornelius equipment where as in Canada we have been using Taylor for years . Although both machines perform for their specific markets, they do create different products.
