Get two hot dogs for $1, or a FREE hot dog with your UltraONE kiosk coupon. Obviously, the question on everyone&rsquo;s minds is &ldquo;Is this sandwich day or not?&rdquo; The word sandwich is defined as &ldquo;an item of food consisting of two pieces of bread with meat, cheese, or other fillings between them, eaten as a light meal.&rdquo; By definition a hot dog bun, while it can be ripped into two pieces, is only one piece of bread. But then this raises the question: What about a hoagie or sub bun? Those pieces of bread are usually connected on one side like a hot dog bun but we refer to them as a hoagie sandwich or a sub sandwich. So why is the debate always about hot dogs?</p> <p></p> <p>Maybe it&rsquo;s because they&rsquo;d be upright sandwiches and we&rsquo;re scared of labels? Maybe it&rsquo;s because the words &ldquo;hot dog&rdquo; and &ldquo;sandwich&rdquo; in succession just leave a bad taste in your mouth. Or maybe it&rsquo;s because originally hot dogs were just supposed to be eaten plain. The hot dog bun was introduced to make it possible to eat hot dogs without burning one&rsquo;s hands. Have you ever tried to eat a sandwich without a bun in your hands? It is pretty messy and a bit more difficult, as that guy you know who is cutting back on carbs can attest.</p> <p>Is a hot dog a sandwich? To be honest, we still don&rsquo;t know. We can see both sides of the bun on this. &nbsp;What we do know is on National Hot Dog Day (Wednesday, July 17) you can stop into any TA and Petro Stopping Center and TA Express and get&nbsp;two hot dogs for $1, or a FREE hot dog with your UltraONE kiosk coupon. The offer will be valid July 17 only. We hope to celebrate with you!</p> http://www.6ruoi.com/blog/post/National-Hot-Dog-Day-2019 http://www.6ruoi.com/blog/post/National-Hot-Dog-Day-2019#comment http://www.6ruoi.com/blog/post.aspx?id=da6f0f3d-b13a-4458-9505-16bc54e73214 周一, 8 七月 2019 11:56:00 -0400 GOASIS Travel Store TAPetroStore http://www.6ruoi.com/blog/pingback.axd http://www.6ruoi.com/blog/post.aspx?id=da6f0f3d-b13a-4458-9505-16bc54e73214 0 http://www.6ruoi.com/blog/trackback.axd?id=da6f0f3d-b13a-4458-9505-16bc54e73214 http://www.6ruoi.com/blog/post/National-Hot-Dog-Day-2019#comment http://www.6ruoi.com/blog/syndication.axd?post=da6f0f3d-b13a-4458-9505-16bc54e73214 Candy Craziness 2019 Champion <p><img src="http://www.6ruoi.com/blog/image.axd?picture=/Candy Craziness Complete.jpg" alt="" /></p> <p>After six fantastic weeks of Candy Craziness, we have a champion! The Cinderella story, Tootsie Roll Pops, climbed to the top of the Candy Craziness pile. As a reminder, each week we calculated total units sold of the standard-sized candies, Monday through Sunday. Tootsie Roll Pops outlasted Snickers in a nail biter, winning the championship by only <em>126</em> units. As a result, April 22 through April 26, a coupon for a free Tootsie Roll Pop will be on the UltraOne Kiosk. Be sure to stop into one of our locations before they are 1, ah-2, ah-3, gone!</p> <p></p> <p>Tootsie Roll Pops were an underdog through the tournament. The only matchup throughout the tournament that they were favored in was the Chewy Regionals Championship against fellow sucker, Original Gourmet Lollipops. &nbsp;When they were up against Airheads, Starburst, Haribo Goldbears, and Snickers, the odds were not in their favor&mdash;or so we thought. Every single week up until the Championship matchup, they won their brackets in convincing fashion. The championship was a tremendous back-and-forth affair. On average, Tootsie Roll Pops was only <em>18 units</em> better than Snickers throughout the week. Snickers was seemingly the Goliath to Tootsie Roll Pops David.</p> <p>A special shout out to the Chocolate Region and second-place winner Snickers, who with the help of a buy one get one free promotion had the best single week of the tournament and has most units sold during the duration. Snickers looked to be in cruise control until they ran into Tootsie Roll Pops. They had a tremendously strong showing. Unfortunately, they just were not able to finish it off in the end.</p> <p>Thank you for following along throughout Candy Craziness on our <a >Facebook</a> and <a >Twitter</a> pages, our blog, and at site on our digital TV boards.</p> http://www.6ruoi.com/blog/post/Candy-Craziness-2019-Champion http://www.6ruoi.com/blog/post/Candy-Craziness-2019-Champion#comment http://www.6ruoi.com/blog/post.aspx?id=0265f8e3-ee3e-4f42-acf0-124e333a20b1 周二, 16 四月 2019 09:21:00 -0400 GOASIS Travel Store TravelCentersAdmin http://www.6ruoi.com/blog/pingback.axd http://www.6ruoi.com/blog/post.aspx?id=0265f8e3-ee3e-4f42-acf0-124e333a20b1 0 http://www.6ruoi.com/blog/trackback.axd?id=0265f8e3-ee3e-4f42-acf0-124e333a20b1 http://www.6ruoi.com/blog/post/Candy-Craziness-2019-Champion#comment http://www.6ruoi.com/blog/syndication.axd?post=0265f8e3-ee3e-4f42-acf0-124e333a20b1 Candy Craziness Finals <p><img src="http://www.6ruoi.com/blog/image.axd?picture=/Finals Candy Bracket-Blog.jpg" alt="" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>After five weeks of grueling Candy Craziness, the finals are set. The satisfied Snickers vs. takin&rsquo; licks Tootsie Roll Pops. The winner will become the 2019 TravelCenters of America Candy Craziness Champion! Both Snickers and Tootsie Roll Pops were within 100 units sold last week. The Finals could go either way. As a reminder, each week we will calculate total units sold of the standard-sized candies Monday through Sunday. Be sure to stop into one of our locations and help your favorite win!</p> <p></p> <p>The Chocolate Champion Snickers has dominated up to this point. In the first round, they simply overpowered Hershey&rsquo;s Milk Chocolate with a little help from a buy one get one promotion. In Round 2, they faced Twix. Even though Twix also had the benefits of the BOGO offer, Snickers advanced. The Chocolate Region finals had another MARS vs. MARS matchup. This time Snickers continued its dominance by easily defeating Peanut M&amp;Ms to become the Chocolate Region Champion. Once in the Fun Four, Snickers was able to move past its first non-Chocolate foe in Doublemint Gum. Unfortunately for Doublemint, they just ran into a chocolate and caramel buzz saw.</p> <p>The Chewy Champion Tootsie Roll Pops is the Cinderella that is looking to go all the way. In Round 1, they handled Airheads and won leading away convincingly. In the second round, they pulled one of the major upsets of the tournament when they knocked out Starburst.&nbsp; After that triumph, in the Chewy Region finals they ironically faced up against Original Gourmet Lollipops. In the closest round for Tootsie Roll Pop so far, they were able to outlast the formidable lollipops. In the Fun Four, they faced up against Haribo Goldbears. A wise owl once said it only takes 3 licks to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Pops. For Tootsie Roll Pops, it only took 5 wins to makes it to the center of the Candy Craziness bracket.</p> <p>As a reminder, at the end of the bracket look for a coupon of the winning candy on the UltraOne Kiosk April 22 through April 26.
