Who needs the Kwik E Mart? I doooooo….

As you may already know, I am an obsessive fan of the Simpsons. As luck would have it, they opened a Kwik E Mart in Chicago. Ha! Take that Detroit! 😛 Here are some pics from our visit. Unfortunately, there are non-vegan foods and cigarettes pictured so this post is a one-time exception for my blog.

I had to ask if they had any Krusty O’s and sadly they were sold out. We did buy a pack of Buzz cola and two Squishees. It was fun to see the store and I can’t wait for the movie to open.

    It’d be nice if they changed the hot dogs to tofu like on the show.
