The annual free Slurpee event at 7-Eleven on 7-11 will be nearly twice as big this year.
The convenience store chain gives away Slurpees on the unofficial birthday of the treat. But this year instead of those small 7.11 ounce cups, customers will get 12 ounce cups.
The company said the main reason for the change is because it's less messy. The 12 ounce cups come with lids.
7-Eleven estimates it will give away about 7 million Slurpees on Thursday.
