When I was little, my Papa would take us to Circle K whenever we visited him. It was a much anticipated part of every trip. We got to wander up and down the isles, as we faced the monumental decision of which candy bar to pick. Any one we wanted!
My dad continues this tradition with his grandkids, and it is equally as magical for them. Every time he sees the familiar logo as we drive by, Jonah yells out “I see Circle K!”
Apparently, though, even Circle K is being affected by these difficult economic times. Yesterday I heard my 7 year old nephew explaining to all of his cousins:
“Ever since President Obama got elected, the prices of candy at Circle K keeps getting higher and higher.”
