Freezonis, Taquitos, Fresh Milk Shakes, and a Vanilla Dr. Pepper


Apparently I have become an effective QuikTrip evangelist. My friends are now reporting their QT experiences to me with glee. Unfortunately, nobody out of the QuikTrip market understands what could be so great about a convenience store. Until they visit a QT. One friend, who didn't even know about my thoughts on QT, just happened to bring up in conversation the fact that on a recent road trip she went to this "amazing convenience store" called QT. I just smiled. I'll never forget the reaction of a friend of mine (who had been a naysayer) to the QT coffee bar when we walked in.

My favorite experience though was when I was driving a friend to Norman from Abilene and going on and on about QTs, which annoyed her to no end that I was talking this way about a stupid convenience store. When we arrived in Norman I grabbed the first person I saw who I knew was from Tulsa and simply asked her "What do you think about QuikTrip?" Her eyes lit up and she immediately launched into a five minute tribute to QT.

QuikTrip, I'm sorry for taking you for granted during all those Tulsa years. Enduring crappy convenience stores and gas stations since then has taught me a lesson.

That was a good trip! ;-)
Em was very excited about her recent adventure to QT. You and your ravings are missed around these parts...

I was in QT last week, and needed a snack before heading back to OKC. So I picked up a chocolate chip muffin, which they marketed to me quite successfully.

Then I looked at the nutrition facts, and it said 13 grams of fat....in 1/3 of the muffin! That was a 39-fat gram muffin!

So, I put it back and ate a cookie and Coke ICEE instead. QT has great cookies.

You got to admit that that was probably a delicious muffin. And I'm sure you meant to say "Freezoni."
