Six Things to Order When Wawa Opens in Broward and Palm Beach

Page 2 of 2

3. House Brand Drinks
If you're thirsty, Wawa has the quencher. Like most items, you can get tons of drinks at Wawa you can't get anywhere else, including the house brand iced teas, from mango and green tea to sweet and peach tea. Then there's the lemonade (and a half-and-half that's out of this world), sodas, chocolate milk — even orange juice. Don't forget the fruit and cream smoothies, including flavors from mango, peach, and bananas Foster to mint cookie and cream, chocolate chocolate chip, and caramel cream.
4. Breakfast Sandwiches
Really, you haven't lived until you've had a Bacon Croissant Sizzle. "Sizzli" is just the name for Wawa's branded breakfast sandwiches, which you can order a dozen different ways on a bagel, croissant, biscuit, or French toast with toppings like applewood smoke bacon; regular, turkey, or chorizo sausage; several types of cheese; and, of course, egg. Craving breakfast late at night? Most stores stay open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There's also a selection of doughnuts, bagels, and muffins baked onsite daily. And please, don't forget the hash browns.
5. Dessert
Wawa began as a dairy farm, and its roots in the dairy business go back more than 100 years to when Wawa Dairy was founded in 1902 in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, where it bottled fresh milk products from certified Guernsey cows. Today, Wawa produces an array of amazing dairy products — like its own ice cream. Try a Flurricane: ice cream blended with candy, cookies, or chocolate chips. Wawa even sells a range of specialty housemade desserts, including the oven-baked s'more pie. 
6. Coffee
Ten types of lattes? Seven different hot chocolates? Four types of chai? There's a magical machine that does it all. If you prefer regular coffee, every store has an overwhelming amount of roasts and brews to choose from — and then a full refrigerated creamer and sweetener bar for customization to the max. Wawa even does this amazing thing when, every now and then, coffee is sold for $1 (any size) or just given away for free. The coffee is so good, Wawa even packages it in bags for you to bring back to brew at home, just in case you can't make it to the store that morning (or night). And just like Starbucks and Dunkin' Donuts, keep an eye out for limited-time, seasonal releases like pumpkin spice.
