You’re not the only one enjoying Free Slurpee Day. Celebrities—they’re just like us!—like 7-Eleven Slurpees, too.
LeBron James, who announced that he will return to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday, is a big fan of 7-11’s icy, slushy drink and even has his own flavor. James partnered with the convenience-store chain to create “The Spring 6 Mix by Lebron James.” His special, limited-edition flavor, which mixes orange and cherry with lemon-lime soda, has been available since May 28.
Other celebrities who have been spotted with Slurpees over the years include Ashley Benson, Kim Kardashian, Selena Gomez and Joe Jonas.
