Let’s begin with some interesting facts about slurpees…
Before we can explain the history behind this day, let’s tell you about the history behind the Slurpee. Omar Knedlik created this. It was originally known as ICEE. It was accidentally discovered, like many of the best inventions in the world. Knedlik came across the idea after a soda fountain broke. He had to freeze his sodas in order to keep them cool. The soda slush was created and became a hit with customers. Knedlik was able to freeze carbonated beverages.
Brand 7-Eleven was able to capitalize on the success of the ICEE beverage. They signed a licensing agreement with Knedlik in 1965 to market the product under a different name. The Slurpee was only sold in shops. An advertising executive gave the name to the drink and it is known for the distinctive sound it makes. This drink was a huge success. The machines were sold in every store by the next year. New flavors were given eye-catching and sometimes even risky names. These included Gully Washer and Sticky Icky, Pink Fink, Moonshine, Gully Washer, Gully Washer, Gully Washer, Sticky Icky and Moonshine.
