Aussies Drank 270,000 Litres Of Free Slurpees

No surprise: we love free frozen drinks. It was 7-Eleven Day last Monday, and according to 7-Eleven itself, 270,000 litres of slurpee were handed out across the nation.

There were reports of sneaky behaviour in some stores (such as putting the small cups behind the counter), but most seem to have been happy to indulge in the slurpee giveaway frenzy. The busiest stores were Cranbourne North in Victoria (which gave out 11,000 free slurpees), Caringbah in NSW (8,813) and Oxfenford in Queensland (4,402).

Victoria consumed more than half the national total, and more than 100,000 slurpees got handed out during the post-school hour alone. The most popular flavour? Passionfruit. (No thanks!)
