‘Peggers are famous for sucking back sweet sugary slurpees even when it’s -45 with the windchill, but for those of us who prefer to hibernate during the winter chill, you can now get your colourful concoction delivered to your door.

Food delivery service Uber Eats now offers deliveries from two 7-Eleven locations on their app and online, and yes, that includes slurpees.

Flavours are spelled out if you are a one-slurpee, one-flavour kind of person. If you like to mix it up, you can do that too – the app allows you to combine up to six flavours.

With your slurpee, you can also purchase hot food, candy, chocolate, chips, milk and if you’re tired, hungover or have a sore throat – energy shots, painkillers and Halls.

This all comes with a fee, of course, depending on how far away you are from the two locations that showed up in the app, including the locations at 568 Osborne St. and 655 McPhillips St.

Winnipeg has been declared the Slurpee Capital of the World for 19 years in a row. The city’s franchise stores sell about 188,000 slurpees a month, while the Canadian average is about 174,000.

There is a new street sign at the corner of Portage and Rouge.
