When Wawa started to sprout like mushrooms after the rain throughout the Orlando area, I felt a real connection to my childhood. I told Wawa staff and fellow customers that I loved Wawa growing up in Philadelphia. I could survive in Orlando if I could have Wawa tuna hoagies on a regular basis.
Then Wawa began celebrating its 50th Anniversary, and I realized that I had started Penn State by the time Wawa opened its doors. So much for childhood memories. I'm sure I enjoyed their outstanding tuna hoagies when I returned to the neighborhood for years thereafter - from Washington, DC., Chicago, and New York.
