The best NJ gas station food is here, according to the Foodie website

NEW JERSEY — Chances are you’ve already tried this ever-popular brand that’s only just expanding into the Garden State.

National foodie website Mashed.com released a list of the best gas station cuisine in every state, and beloved convenience store chain Wawa’s signature subs snagged a spot in the rankings.

And though Wawa is headquartered in Pennsylvania, he seems to have a soft spot for many New Jersey locals.

Mashed.com said the following of the East Coast convenience store giant:

What Sheetz is to Pennsylvania, Wawa is to New Jersey. Wawa is one of the best places to rest and refuel because you can find tons of food and drink options here that you don’t get at regular gas stations. One of the main reasons people love Wawa is because it makes fresh, delicious subs that are portable, tasty, and quite healthy. Wawa’s classic submarines have a few strengths. The flavors are all familiar and predictable, but the ingredients are super fresh and there are lots of different toppings to choose from.

There are over 270 Wawa stores in New Jersey (representing more than a quarter of all locations) and over 950 locations nationwide, offering everything from hoagies and coffee to pizza and quick snacks. .

And if you live in the state and haven’t tried their signature hoagies, you may soon have a chance. Wawa is expected to double its number of stores by 2030, with a handful of new stores planned in the Garden State. The new locations will open this spring.
