Have You Noticed This Huge Change at Kwik Trip?
You saw it first on websites, then on pamphlets in the restaurants, then, finally, on the menus. Now Kwik Trip is doing it, too. A huge change for them, and one that may hurt business. They're now showing their hot food calorie counts right there on the food cards in The Hot Spot.
I love it. I might know a double cheeseburger isn't the best choice or is a great choice, but not with a chicken sandwich, a couple egg rolls, a couple cheese stuffed breadsticks, and a NAKED Strawberry/Banana Smoothie (1,760 calories total).
Is it lame I need a li'l help controlling my intake? Maybe. But I do, and seeing the calorie count makes a huge difference in my decision making. Which is why I think it may cost Kwik Trip some money.
It is so easy to grab something, eat it, and not think about the calories. But when you know the wildly delicious 1/4 lb Angus Cheeseburger on Pretzel Roll has 720 calories and 910mg of sodium, you may still buy it, but you're more likely to grab an apple to go with it. Maybe a li'l veggie tray to give your body some love.
