QT Coffee Queen

What is it about QT (QuikTrip) coffee that holds me in thrall? It isn’t the caffeine; I’m as satisfied with decaf as with the nuclear stuff. Whatever it is, I’m addicted.

QT is a convenience store/gas station chain with locations throughout Georgia and eight other southeastern states. I choose QT coffee over Starbucks on a regular basis which proves either: a) QT coffee is a great brew; b) I’m a redneck peasant with taste buds born in the gas tank of the General Lee; c) I’m a savvy shopper who prefers to pay $1.25 rather than $4.00 for a great cup of java; or d) All of the above.  

True coffee aficionados will argue my praises of QT coffee. After all, Starbucks is the coffee king, catering to delicate palates (and wide open wallets) while QT drips their joe in a continuous 24-hour rotation with latte and cappuccino evolving from powder. It doesn’t matter. QT coffee rocks. 

QT doesn’t just entice with yummy coffee. They have a whole glass cabinet full of fresh baked pastries, doughnuts, cookies, brownies, etc. They offer breakfasts of sausage, egg and cheese biscuits; lunchtime subs, sandwiches, hot dogs and taquitos; salads and fruit; plus all the usual convenience store power drinks and juices. If they had some place for me to sleep and do laundry I might never leave. 

Here’s the thing: A day without QT coffee is a day without sunshine. Take away my chocolate, my cheesecake, or even my beloved peanut M&Ms; but please, oh, please, do not leave me QT coffee-less! 

Fortunately, my husband is addicted to the stuff, too, so he understands my obsession. And the sight of my man clutching a QT coffee. . .ooh, baby. Joe and java. . .it’s kismet.

So I’m off to QT for my second fix of the day. I’ll buy some coffee for my hubby, too, because a 20 oz. cup of QT coffee is just one more way to say, “I love you.” 

Coincidentally, QT also sells peanut M&Ms.  

I’m all a-tingle. 

Til next time –
