HuffPo: Kate Winslet Describes Being Awestruck By ‘Mythical’ Wawahttps://t.co/V28ciMn5X9— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) May 7, 2021
The iconic Wawa has a new fan: Kate Winslet.
Spending time in Delaware County, PA shooting Mare of Easttown, Kate discovered the convenience store reading the local Delco Times paper every day, calling it an "almost mythical place."
By the time she got inside a store, it was as if the clouds departed: "By the time I got there, I was like, ‘It’s real!’ Walking into a Wawa ultimately felt like, it was kind of an honor, in a funny way, because to me that was the heart of Delco. So to finally walk through the door of a Wawa; I don’t know why I felt like, ‘Oh, yes, I’m here, I belong. This is where it’s at. Wawa."
Sadly, Kate mentions she only ever got coffee and never tried out its variety of hoagies and other goodies, but mentioned Evan Peters was obsessed with The Gobbler: a seasonal hoagie with turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and gravy.
Wawa is located primarily in the Philadelphia tri-state area, but there are some in DC, Virginia, and Florida.
