Five million drinks will be handed out while supplies last. Favorite flavors in Sonoma are, according to extensive research, Coke, Mountain Dew, Fanta, and sugar-free Strawberry Banana.
The Slurpee was originally known as the "slushy," and was invented by Omar Knedlik in the late 1950s when his soda fountain broke down. He had it made commercially as the ICEE machine, originally using an automobile air conditioner as the cooling unit.
7-Eleven stores starting carrying them in 1965, and in 1967 introduced the name "Slurpee" for the sound made in drinking them.
