Re: Wawa.
I live in New Britain, Twp. and the Wawa on Butler Pike is always swamped. I love their gobblers and even though Thanksgiving - and its leftovers - are gone, I may continue to get them until they stop selling them or until I get sick of them, whichever comes first.

As for the gas at Wawa, I get it occasionally for the sake of convenience, not price. I haven't checked to see how much mileage I get for the price, but I do know I've had what I consider "inferior gas" from time to time from the other, brand-name fuel stations.

I never heard bad stuff about their gas, but do know people with performance vehicles that will only buy gas at Sunoco, and Shell, so maybe there is something to it.
I don’t know about it being too sweet, but it is very high in sodium. Check the nutritional chart.

I can't think of the name of the store, but there's was a place in Kennett where the soups were magnificent and put WaWa's to shame. Plus there was more variety and you could serve yourself.

Wawa's food, as said many times here, is "okay" in a pinch (GREAT mashed potatoes), but they should GET OUT of the cheese steak business: "steamed" meat in a cheese steak???? HORRORS

Steamed cheese steak meat is more than a horror. The definitive Philly sandwich is Roast Pork anyway. Go to Nicks.

People say that (and I agree it’s the better sandwich), but since porchetta isn’t unique to Philadelphia, that really isn’t true. Philly roast pork sandwiches are the best, though. I take mine with broccoli rabe and long hots.

I'm sure the soups were better at that place in Kennett Square (Talula's Table, perhaps?), but to be fair, Wawa's soups aren't all that bad.

I just did a quick comparison of the New England clam chowder the deli in my office building serves with what Wawa offers, and Wawa's was better. For starters, it had actual clam bits in it you could taste and feel.

No sharp provolone?

Absolutely, sharp provolone (I thought that was a given ), and a hard, seeded roll, to boot.
