C-Store Goulash

Meaty tidbits from around the Retail Petroleum Industry

C-Store Goulash
After a month of original exclusive blog content (check out our past posts if you missed them), we thought we’d catch our breath and take this opportunity to share some of the more interesting items we’ve stumbled across during our web-based journeys. We guess we could call this entry a digest, but, you know…food. Food good. So we’re calling it a goulash. Let’s not waste another moment.

C-Stores in the Media

The Disney Channel’s Gravity Falls is one of those cartoons an adult can watch without losing a few IQ points. In fact, we’d probably follow it even if we didn’t have grandchildren, so it was with much interest that we viewed a recent episode that took place in a haunted C-store. It’s called The Inconveniencing. Try to find a rerun on the Disney Channel or Disney XD sometime, with or without your kids. It’s interesting to see their take on a C-store and what might haunt one.

If you’re looking for something a little more adult, the History Channel’s Modern Marvels TV series features an episode solely devoted to the convenience store. You can view it here. Definitely worth watching and always good to see the industry getting the positive recognition it deserves.

Food, Food, and More Food!

If there’s one thing we’ve found out in the little over a year we’ve been publishing this blog is that our readers always respond enthusiastically to articles about food, especially when there’s a C-store tie-in. Here are a few food-related items that have caught our interest over the last few weeks:

The Weird and the Wonderful

Of course, no digest, er, goulash, of C-store items would be complete without a few oddities, so let’s get to it:

Well, that’s it for this week. With Halloween looming large over us like a bloated, blood orange Harvest Moon, I’m sure you can guess the theme of next week’s post. Until then, stay spooky!
