Don’t Miss Buc-ee Gas Station Items in Richmond KY

0

Cheap gas? Friendly employees? Clean bathrooms? To verify. The new Buc-ee’s in Richmond, which will open April 19, has them all. Really.

But here are some things you might miss if you don’t know what to look for in the 53,000 square foot store.

It’s so big and has so much going on that, especially for beginners, Buc-ee can be a big sensory overload.

So we’ll highlight some lesser-known but still great things.

Buc-ee jerky

Buc-ee’s has a lot of jerky, but Josh Smith, Buc-ee’s operations manager for the Southeast region, said his favorite is the Hill Country Ghost Pepper Jerky, which is spicy but not scorching. All jerky is made by Buc-ee’s.

Fudge Overload

There are so many flavors of fudge at Buc-ee that you might have a hard time deciding. Let me make a suggestion: Tiger Butter, which is white chocolate, then a peanut butter layer, then a white chocolate, chocolate, and peanut butter swirl topping. Three. For. A.

CIEE wall

When I was a kid, there were two, maybe three types of ICEE: blue, red and cola. The choices at Buc-ee are sure to blow your mind. Watermelon, frozen Dr. Pepper, white cherry? Your children will be there all day to make their choice.

Beaver chips

Besides barbecue and fried chicken sandwiches, you can find these little bags of potato chips, or “beaver chips,” that will go great with any lunch you eat.

Old favorite sweets

Of course, all convenience stores have candy. But Buc-ee’s has a section devoted to “old favorites” such as waxy soda bottles, Boston baked beans, saltwater taffy, candy corn, and “candy bloxes” that look like candies. Sweet Legos.

beaver freezers

That’s really what they’re called, all of you. And I’m told that while the eight or so flavors are great, the root beer float ones are the bomb.

Buc-ee Merch

You won’t exactly forget Buc-ee’s stuff. You can get just about anything from pajamas to bikinis to bobblehead dolls with the beaver on them. Buc-ee devotees say they plan trips where they can stop by Buc-ee, so why wouldn’t you want a way to let others know about your fandom?
