"I don't understand this nostalgia for Wawa convenience stores in NJ. Wawa is a Pennsylvania thing"

THey're very big in South Jersey too. My cousin's daughter is at Drexel in Philly, and they have a 7-11 on her corner. She has to go home to the Jersey shore for Wawa.

"As for Tastykake, does anyone besides me remember when peanut butter Kandy Kakes were peanut butter Tandy Takes?"

I thought I'd dreamed that! I almost wrote it that way earlier in the thread and then I was like, "Where the hell did THAT come from?!"

"This was back when Tastykake only sold their products locally. Those were the days when they would put one long, thick ribbon of icing over the 3 chocolate cupcakes in a pack -- oooh, yeah."

Right there with you on that one. Do they sell out of the region now?

I remember the first time I walked into a Tesco in England some years ago and saw ENTENMANN's cakes! That was weird - there were parts of New Jersey where you didn't even get Entenmann's when I was a kid, but there they were in Staffordshire.

And now, to show that growing up in the Delaware Valley wasn't just about food...

Oh, the horror...

the horror!!!!
