The Wawa Versus Cumberland Farms Showdown

Five key differences between the two gas stations.

The Wawa Versus Cumberland Farms Showdown

Going back and forth from CT to DE, there is one huge change that I notice: gas stations. Most of the gas stations I see down there, I do not see up here. However, there is a huge competition between two, at least from a north and south standpoint: Cumberland Farms (Cumbies) and Wawa. Everyone down there loves Wawa, and everyone up here loves Cumbies. The main question is: which one is better?

1. Food (made at the station)

I hate to say it, but Wawa wins this competition for food. I have not had much of either food products, but the sandwich I had from Wawa was much better than the pizza I had at Cumbies. I HATED the pizza at Cumbies and I love every pizza I've ever ate so that says something if I prefer a sandwich over pizza.

2. Drink Selection

Wawa may have a larger variety of drinks and cup sizes at their locations, but Cumbies totally wins this one. Not only is every drink their 89 to 99 cents but they have SLUSHIES! Pretty much every time I am there I get myself a slushy. They are my favorite things in the world, and they are only 89 cents for a small or large. Talk about a win!

3. Convenience Store

As a convenience store, both of these places seem to have decent prices for the food that they offer (in packages). So, they tie on this one. I have not purchased anything stale or rotten from their stores, and keep them in pretty good shape. Never had I had a bad experience either place.

4. Customer Service

I don't know what it is but I like Cumbies customer service better. Maybe it is because I am used to the people or always in there when it is not busy but the people are much friendlier. When I go into Wawa, it always seems to be busy and they are just trying to get you out of the door. This is just what I have experienced, however.

5. App

Each of these places have an app but Cumbies is by far so much better. With Cumbies you apply and receive a card through them, almost like a credit card, and you purchase gas and anything else from the store with the card or app. If you use it on gas you get 10 cents off per gallon. Plus with a certain amount of gallons of gas, you receive free drinks and on special occasions other free or discounted items as well. With the Wawa app, you put money on the app and I believe will get rewarded. I tried to use the Wawa app, but I liked the Cumbies one much better.

No matter what gas station is nearest to you or whichever one you use because of the state you live in, they both have their perks and downfalls. Maybe once I use Wawa more I will find it to be better but I will always love Cumbies.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
