A Keurig cannot make gas station cappuccinos. You have to have so much powder that it has the consistency of heavy whipping cream. They are a marvel of physics to get water to hold enough mix to be supersaturated yet never have the powder settle in the bottom.

Eh I got an advertisement from them and first thing I saw was "Official pizza for the Iowa Hawkeyes". Game over.
Which place advertises as the official pizza for hawkeyes? Casey’s or Quik Star??

Sorry, just read through the entire thread & found my answer! So, no pizza at Kwik Star, thanks for letting us know. I’m happy, since I love Casey’s pizza!

These new Kwik Stars are amazing. Yeah it’s unfortunate that they donate to Iowa but you’ll have that.
Mediacom also does, I hate their guts, but they have a better internet option in my hood than Centurylink. That’s how it goes.

I stopped into my local Casey’s in Grimes for the first time in a week. Got a cup of joe. All new cups. Nice. High quality stuff. Ooh, new signs for the coffee. Swanky. Wait....all new flavors? They changed the flavors? The Classic is NOT THE CLASSIC BREW!!!! It’s all bitter and ‘look at me’ now. What the ****? I go to Casey’s for the cheap and weak coffee. I check the website and it says this...

Our culinary team gave themselves a mission: find a better-tasting coffee line that resembles more specialty coffee bar flavors

WHAT THE HELL, I don’t want a coffee bar, I want my weak arse coffee back!
Coffee and the HyVee fuel saver was the only reason I used Casey’s. Right across the street from my Casey’s is a new Kwikstar. And they’re putting up another KS on the other side of my hood. Goodbye Casey’s, I’ll miss you.
If they provide hot water they just gave you a 2 for 1 deal on weak coffee.

Kwik Star had ads on Cyclones TV for the game on Tuesday.

Their pizza quality matches the quality of the Iowa basketball team (they've also been in eastern Iowa for a long time). Only get it on dollar slice Wednesdays.

Everything else is great there as previously stated.

If you go to a game in CHA then the pizza is free...that's the downside though.

For you DSM folks who are new to Kwik Star:

Avoid the pizza. You won’t **** for a week, and it pales compared to Casey’s x

Go there for everything else.
I've found that while Casey's pizza can be decent, its true strength as a product is that all other gas station pizza is completely toxic.

See, this is gonna turn into a coffee snob thread. Plenty of people like weaker coffee. There is a market for it. I HATE Starbucks crap that’s all bitter and sickly sweet at the end. Casey’s coffee wasn’t pretentious. It was small town farmer coffee. Now they want to be like everyone else. That’s fine. I’ll get gas and coffee elsewhere. But acting like only strong fancy coffee is good coffee is like the idiot beer hipsters trying to tell a coors light drinker he’s wrong for liking that
And yet you still started the thread?
