Way back in time, I wrote about Wawa, and all the goodness that it brings. Kids of all ages that have ever visited one of their stores (locations can be found herelocations can be found here) or heard about one, know of the aura that Wawa has. There’s no overstating this, I find happiness here, that I don’t find just anywhere. And there’s happiness to be found anywhere and everywhere…
I would have to give myself enough time to write about every tea, coffee, latte, and everything in between that Wawa has to offer. And that’s just counting for the fall season, let alone everything else. The photo above is just the beginning, and everything else is great too. Yes, this story will be loaded with heavy biases, and I’m proud of that fact.
On average I’m here at least five times a week. That isn’t an exaggeration. I’m fortunate to be near a half-dozen or so stores/filling stations just within driving distance, and many more in the area, that I’m never without my Wawa.
Three plus years was way too long to get back to talking about one of the best places in the whole wide world, so let’s get to it…
The Hot Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea is more on the lighter side, and that’s just the way I wanted it. In many past stories I’ve elaborated on why I feel this can be too rich and too aggressive for my tastes. As we approach comfort food, comfort drink, and comfort everything this season, a little richness never hurt anybody. But when it comes to chai I want it light, I always want it light, and I want it just like this.
What’s beautiful about the drink choices (and pretty much most of the food choices as well…) is that it’s built to order at your fingertips. I know a lot of places have instituted this, but I would like to think Wawa was first, and the greatest of all time. I warned you about biases!
You have your options of milk and whether or not you want whip cream. Their recommendations are shown to you, but you can come up with whatever makes you happy. Almond milk makes he happy. Yay! With the chai I kept it real simple as opposed too…
The Iced Pumpkin Maple Harvest Latte is full on commotion and chaos, no not really, it’s a heavy drink. I got it iced and with whip cream on top. And if you think I finished this one in one setting, you would be right. Actually no, this one took a long time and my stomach said no thank you. But the truth is, it’s good, but it’s not for everyone.
Maple has somewhat caught up to pumpkin in terms of all the fall concoctions that you can make out of these two autumnal entities (not sure it that made sense). This isn’t a knock on the drink at all. I ordered this deliberately to counterbalance the chai tea.
While I like it, and it’s not necessarily for me, it easily could be something you will enjoy. I’m all about trying something different. And their menu has something available for all to enjoy.
I love Wawa. Wait, did I already say that? But it’s the truth. Since the first time I set foot into one up to earlier today, I always enjoy a visit. I get excited when I drive past one or a see a sign on the highway for one of my favorite places. I still get the warm and fuzzies, and feel like a kid in this store. And this is before I even walk in.
These warm feelings of love are heightened as we are officially (maybe?) into the fall beverage season, and fully appreciate right now and what’s to come.
I look forward with what’s to come, but for now, I love Wawa. Always have and always will.
Peace Be With You.
