Sticky summer days can make people do loopy things, like cavort drunkenly in parks, pee on unfamiliar lawns and consume mass quantities of fluorescent, sugar-jacked slush. Today, you can do the latter without spending a cent: 7-Eleven, the international enabler of bad gastronomic decisions, is launching its annual slurpee drive. This year it includes an official slurpee dance, a Skrillex-style theme song, a motivational chinchilla named Pam (we’re confused too) and free slurpees for its first 1,500 Toronto customers. That’s right, free slurpees! We’ve even come up with some savoury recommendations to go with your 12 ounces of Mountain Dew Super Nova. For all seven snack-and-slurpee pairings, check out the slideshow below.
