Warm Fuzzies

In Winnipeg, my hometown, we are considered the Slurpee Capital of Canada. We only have approximately 4 months of Spring/Summer if we are lucky. The rest of the year we are subjected to below zero temperatures, with extreme windchill and record breaking lows. It is not uncommon to wake up to -35 degrees Celsius while we shudder at having to warm up our vehicle and dress up our kids! Many people wonder how there could be a large city in such harsh weather conditions-I think a better question would be, why do we love Slurpee's so much! We must all be addicted to the cold, however, whether it's -35, or +35 we still line up for Slurpee's! If a visitor would like to know how we know spring has arrived, all one needs to do is drive by the local 7-11 and look for the line extending all the way out the door with people holding Slurpees! They are in line in business suits, jeans, shorts, skateboards, dresses-with Slurpee's there are no boundaries! So my Meme today celebrates the Slurpee!

    interesting mix for your favorite slurpee...

    I usually go for blue raspberry (electric blue?) or Cream Soda...people here in Ottawa love a good Slurpee too, but I've got to say that I've never seen a long line-up outside the 7-11!

    A Slurpee is basically a slushee...a mix of crushed ice and flavoring. They are the best!

    Thanks for visiting!

    Yummy! Have you tried all of them? I love slurpees, but hate when you drink them to fast and get brain freeze.

    Ewwwwww, grape w/Pepsi & Dr Pepper?

    Never heard of a cream soada slurpee but gosh that sounds yummy!

    I haven't had a slurpee in years; wonder if there are still 7-11's around here. Might need to go look that up!

    For Slurpees I've gotta have Cherry Coke. Nothing else will do it for me.

    Brrr! Is it really that cold?

    I didn't even know they had that many flavors! Interesting! I bet I'd really like the DP one! YUM!

    Sheesh, I thought Cherry, Coke, and the blue one were the only ones! I'd love to try the Dr. Pepper one! YUM!!

    Totally hilarious. Wow, can't believe there are that many flavors!

    Mmmm, cream soda flavor sounds really good. This makes me want to go to the 7-11 just down the road and get an icee--coke flavor.
