While we are ******** about change I'll throw in my $0.02. I know not many people like Butterfingers but I do and we bought some for our Halloween candy mix. I thought it would be great since I haven't had one in probably a year. I tried one and it was terrible. I guess they tried to make it "new and improved" but instead made it bitter while saccharin at the same time (I don't even know how you can accomplish that) with next to no texture.

You have ruined my childhood!

Carry on.

CBus has the shittiest convenience stores ever. Casey’s ends near Dayton, Sheetz doesn’t start until closer to Pennsylvania.

The Casey's in Clear Lake (18 and 35) has really gone down hill. I never stop there that all the trash cans are literally overflowing and they are claiming to be understaffed when you point it out to them. It is disappointing that they can let a busy place like that go neglected.

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.
Bought Caseys at $99.5o in May of 2018. It is now over $170.00. Love the branding!! People feel like they own Caseys. Maybe they should?

Personally, I'm a Git N' Go guy. I like the feeling of knowing there is a really good chance the store will get robbed when I'm there.
Once you get a taste, you keep chasing the high

Sheetz, Wawa, and Casey’s are all the same imo. Places you go when there’s little alternative.

If you ever get out East, these are the bees knees
I rank it about the same as kwik star/trip probably slightly higher, still wasn't all that impressed of them. I'll take the fresh/cooked food available from Casey's or K&G any day. Casey's I wish would expand their drink selections more. but from experience there's only so much room in their warehouses. the stacks of monster and rockstar drinks would amaze you..

Nothing better than the love affair between Iowans and their gas stations/gas station food.

I’ll never understand it but that’s okay, it’s none of my business. Carry on. Eat your delicious gas station breakfast pizza.

The Kwik star in Grimes regularly has 20+ vehicles in their lot, say maybe 8 are employee vehicles. The Caseys across the street, 3 vehicles, two employees? Kwik star has great stores and Caseys, and Quick Trip, should be nervous.
QT has nothing to fear.
