    Do you happen to know what the name Wa-Wa means?  I always wonder when I drive by one.  Just curious, @starpolisher  Woman Wink.


    The Wa-Wa is a Canadian Goose. The store was named after the goose because the owners originally started out on a dairy farm which was in the Delaware Valley where the Wa Wa habitated. (I googled it)

    Thanks for the info! No, I didn't know. Always wondered though! Just assumed it was the goose too! They have a book that explains their story but I never wanted to know bad enough to spend the money for it! Lol!😂

     

    I found this online under, "The Wa-Wa Story"

     

    "Wawa is named after Wawa, Pa., where the first Wawa, a dairy, was founded. The town in Pennsylvania was so named because that's what the local Native American tribe called a certain bird. That bird? The Canada goose."

     

    Alls I know is here in NJ, we love Wa-Wa! 👍🏻

    It's clean, very friendly, has great service(always with a smile) and convenient! Great coffee too!☕😂

Since I don't do donuts, I have never tried DD.  Keep hearing good things about their coffee.

Dunkin hands down.  Starbucks is too strong and bitter for me.

I second this!!!  Although their food is so-so, the coffee is far superior to Dunkin. I have numerous locations in my area and everytime you drive by...no matter the time of day, the drive thru is always a few cars deep. Starbucks is pretty good but I much prefer Tims.

I haven't seen a Dunkin in decades so I'd have to say Starbucks or locally Kaladi Bros.

Starbucks. It's really about personal preference. I like darker roasts and more bitter coffee. I'll drink normal medium roasts when at a restaurant (or did), but they aren't "real" coffee to me. I have relatives who like blonder roasts, and others who are like me, all about the dark side.

 

ETA: Never sweeten my coffee, and gave up milk/cream years ago. So fill mine to the brim, barista!


I'm not a coffee drinker.  I love tea.  But my mother and many other friends and family members love a good cup of coffee.  But they all have their own personal taste.  My mother loves a strong coffee.  Just a tip but you can add a little cocoa powder to your coffee or coffee grinds.

Dunkin. Large coffee w/4 creams.  Amazingly, we have a Dunkin in both small towns nearest of us.

 

Had Starbucks coffee once and had to take 2 Tums due to heartburn.  Way too strong and bitter.

I realize it is part of their flair, but Starbucks has their:

short

tall

vente 

grande

(trenta soon to come).

No "small, medium, large."
