Unless things have changed, the American Slurpee is quite different from the Canadian one. I recall getting one while we were in Boston several years ago and the machine dispensed it like shaving cream. I’m guessing there’s a lot of entrained air which eats into the total pop volume.

The ones around here have always come out like slush.

It really depends on location and flavour. The newer flavours seem to be coming out thicker.

Tim Horton works the same way. Your free redemption counts towards your next free one. You can also order stalls and then extra large on the freebie but you’re saving like a few dimes for very little beverage imo.

There is no 30 minute wait to buy the second slurpee (or any drink) @ 7 11. lol

This.

Slurpees in the US are foamy, similar to ICEE. In Canada they are not. If let a Canadian Slurpee fully melt and the height of the liquid will drop a bit because ice takes up more area than water, but no where near as bad as the US that contains a lot of air. I am not a fan of the foamy Slurpee.

From Wikipedia:
Canadians purchase an average of 30 million Slurpee drinks per year. Manitoba was crowned the Slurpee Capital of the World for the nineteenth year in a row in 2018. 7-Eleven stores across Winnipeg sell an average of 188,833 Slurpee drinks per month. The rest of Canada sells an average of 179,700 per month, which makes Winnipeggers the world leader of Slurpee sales. Unlike their counterparts in America, Canadian Slurpees do not contain yucca extract which gives it the airy consistency American Slurpees are known for.

How many got a slurpy after reading this thread? lol

I've been dying to have a strawberry one. had a Fruitopia concentrate mixed with club soda instead. Should have chilled the C/S until supercooled for more of the effect.

Did you create a membership? I think you get 1000 points right away, enough for a free medium slurpee.

I’m afraid I’ll be a regular customer if I do. I’ve drank more Tim Horton’s in the last few month than I ever have my entire life because I kept trying to get that free drink!

Out of curiosity do you guys treat these things as a one-off treat, or are you having them a few times a month? They are literally just sugar with absolutely no nutritional value whatsoever. They are unquestionably not good for you, although the degree to which is debatable of course.

I couldn't imagine putting something like this in my body personally.

Sincerely you don’t drink pop or any kind of sweeten drink at all?

I haven’t had a slurpee in probably 10 or 15 years but I can’t imagine it being anymore sugar laden than an equal serving of Coca Cola.
