There's nothing like a free cup of clumpy sugar-stew to bring out the creepy in people.

Good judgement, perhaps reserved for other days of the year, is suspended annually on July 11 so that we may partake of Free Slurpee Day at 7-Eleven. It's a day consumed by sugar highs, corn syrup lows, and all the food photography you can stomach.

These 11 images stand to illustrate the complex nature of the fizzy frenzy. Time reports that 7-Eleven expects to give away roughly 7 million Slurpees this year. Time will tell.
