You won't fool me again, Kwik Trip
The other day I was out running errands and I was suddenly totally Jonesing for deep fried cheese curds. I debated with myself whether or not I really needed them, after all, it was only about 10:30 in the morning. But stomach rules over mid-morning wise food choices all the time, to I pulled into Kwik Trip. I feel bad for those places that don't have a Kwik Trip, they're the awesomest convenience store chain in the world and are all over the place in the upper midwest - KT was one of the places I missed the most when we lived in Hawaii. Butter goes for $2/lb and milk comes in BAGS, how can you go wrong with that combo? Besides, they have deep fried cheese curds right there by the check-out, Nirvana! So I go in and buy a little tray of Cheese Munchers, get back in the car and head home. I take a bite of the first one, expecting a mouthful of delicious greasy cheesey goodess and freaked out. Turns out, Cheese Munchers, despite what their name implies, are not deep fried cheese curds, but are, in fact, stupid little hash brown thingys with cheese in them. What. The. Heck. Disappointed, but still hungry, I ate the dumb things. Yesterday, I was back in town, it as about 1:30 and I hadn't had lunch yet, so back into Kwik Trip I went. This time, I noticed the little slot that had Cheese Nuggets and I knew I hit paydirt. Next to that one were a couple trays of those infamous Cheese Munchers. ugh So I got myself a chicken sandwich and some nuggets and was happy at last.
