Slurpee brings backs a lot of memories. I remember rushing to 7-Eleven right after dismissal time in gradeschool and highschool! It’s one of those things that take you back to your childhood. Every so often, especially during the hot months, I crave for this frozen beverage. There’s something about it that’s so refreshing and fun to drink! It’s our version of Glee’s slushie!
I’m sure you guys know what it’s like to drink the world’s favorite frozen beverage brand, Slurpee, out of a paper cup. Except for the cup designs, it’s the one thing that hasn’t changed—at least that was until 7-Eleven Australia came up with something ingeniously fun and wacky that sent people rushing to the convenience store to be filled with Slurpee!
The Philippines’ first ever Slurpee Bring Your Own Cup Day happens this Thursday, November 7. How does it work? For only 29 pesos, anyone can use the craziest “cups” you can get your hands on!
So we did a little run through of the BYO Cup Day just to see what to expect on November 7! It’s a one-day-only event so you guys better take advantage of this!
My weapon of choice. Yup that’s right—it’s a spray bottle! Haha! It was super last minute. I wish I brought a bigger one! Babawi ako sa November 7!
I have no words for that boot and arinola. No words.
Hold your horses! Anything that can be filled is fair game provided that it follows the rules. As long as the “cup” in question is hygienic, watertight, fixed in size and shape, and can to fit this “hole of greatness” or what 7-Eleven calls the “MaCUPungyarihang Bilog” (measures 9 inches in diameter), customers can fill it to the brim with Slurpee.
With the adorable Aryanna Epperson. She won for having the best cup! Check out her cool Slurpee bucket!

Well someone wanted his/her Slurpee fancy. Haha!
We’re all wearing red! The #BYOCupDay kicks offs 7-Eleven’s partnership with Coke! The world’s favorite frozen beverage and the world’s number one beverage brand? Heck yes! (I love the Coke-flavored Slurpee!) Here I am with the Coke President for Happiness!
The 7-Eleven and Coke people enjoying their slurpees! I spy a trophy Slurpee cup!
And if you’re up for a challenge, they’re also giving 5,000 Pesos to those who will use the most creative cups. Cool, right? Who knows, maybe you can even win 5,000 Pesos AND have all the Slurpee you can ask for!
Upload your photos with your craziest BYO Cup on Facebook and use the hashtag #BYOCupDay! 3 winners will be awarded: Best Use of a Household Item (to be chosen by 7-Eleven), Craziest Cup (photo with the most number of likes) and So Wrong, But So Right (to be chosen by 7-Eleven as well). What can you say about this dog bowl cup and straw hat?
I still haven’t thought of what to use on #BYOCupDay but let me tell you now, it’s going be huge enough for all the Slurpee I could get! But for now, wisik wisik lang muna with my spray bottle, haha!
