Wawa Secret Menu Items You Probably Didn't Know About

Pennsylvania is known for many different food-related features: It's home to a deliciously classic cannoli dessert. It's one of the few states in which teaberry ice cream is available. However, perhaps one of the biggest ventures to originate out of Pennsylvania is Wawa. Wawa is a chain of gas stations and convenience stores that also offers a long menu of delicious food items that you can purchase when you stop to fill up your gas. The menu at Wawa goes so much further than typical gas station items such as a bag of chips or a pack of gum.

It's difficult to pinpoint the exact type of food that Wawa offer since the menu is quite varied. Wawa offers items such as mac-and-cheese, hoagies, salads, sandwiches, and chalupas. The menu is filled with lots of exciting options. However, no restaurant is without its secrets and Wawa has some particularly delicious secret menu items that are even more exciting than regular menu options.

Rainbow Lemonade

June is for celebrating pride month, and many stores and restaurants often release themed products to reflect this important occasion. Although it's not clear if this drink is inspired by pride month, it was released in the hot month of June and has provided Wawa patrons with a colorful, fruity, and refreshing way to quench their thirst (as per Phillymag).

Wawa's "Summertime Sips" drink consisted of six different lemonades, all brightly colored, with each reflecting the colors of the rainbow. According to a Twitter post, this delicious lemonade was available in various different flavors such as strawberry, strawberry mango, mango, mango citrus, blue citrus, and strawberry citrus flavors. These flavors embodied various colors such as red, orange, green, yellow, blue, and violet. 

Each of these drinks provides a rainbow, fruit-flavored spin on Wawa's classic lemonade. Numerous fans on Twitter who adore Wawa's beverages viewed this lemonade as a perfect way to cool off on a hot summer day.

Rainbow Bagels

Wawa's secret menu can be accessed by clicking on the small Goose logo in the corner of a menu screen at Wawa (via Business Insider). Wawa released two rainbow items in June of 2018: One of these was the Summertime Rainbow Smoothies while the other was the Summertime Swirl Bagels (as per Phillymag). These toasted bagels were colorful bagels with rainbow swirls that were served with a mild, yet delectable cream cheese

Again, while no official ads or statements were made regarding this item's release coinciding with Pride month, these bagels certainly did resonate with the celebratory season. While these bagels often appear to have a mixture of blue, red, and yellow swirls, various Twitter posts also show differently colored bagels. For example, in one post, the bagel has a solid balance of blue and red, while a different Wawa bagel on Twitter is more yellow and blue. 

Regardless of the exact color theme, these bagels were quite popular among Wawa fans, and various posts on social media sites showcase and praise these bright, stand-out bagels. These bagels, along with the Rainbow Lemonade, were hugely popular secret menu items. 

St. Patrick's Day smoothies

When St. Patrick's Day rolls around in March, fun, sweet treats begin to pop up all over the place: So many of us get excited about seeing the light green, minty Shamrock Shake that you can get from Mcdonald's or the Lucky Charms cereal that will turn your milk green. 

Everywhere you go, there seems to be some way to celebrate the fun, leprechaun, rainbows, and clover-filled day. Green may be seen as the color of envy but Wawa's menu features fun green drinks like the iced matcha drink (via NBC 10 Philadelphia). However, the secret menu has a few more fun, festive, and luck-filled smoothies.

In the March of 2019, Wawa's introduced three sweet smoothies in honor of Saint Patrick's Day: A caramel "Pot of Gold" smoothie, a Mocha Mint Paddy, and a Good Luck Mint, which was a bright green smoothie with rainbow candies sitting atop the drink (as per Twitter). Wawa fans who ordered off this secret menu seemed to enjoy the chocolate, mint, and caramel flavors of these drinks. Some customers also asserted the superiority of Wawa's Good Luck Mint over the drinks at McDonald's.

Birthday cake drinks

Wawa's secret menu hasn't been around forever. Though Wawa was created in the '60s, the secret menu is more recent and was only created in 2018 (via Business Insider). The surprised patrons who discovered the secret menu upon its first release were met with two items. These two items that graced Wawa's secret menu were a birthday cake smoothie and a birthday cake milkshake (as per Food & Wine Magazine). 

These drinks are topped with whipped cream and rainbow sprinkles. Wawa fans who managed to find the secret menu when it first came out were enamored with both the secret menu and the drinks themselves. A Facebook post notes that fans who didn't want ice cream could opt for a yogurt base instead. These delicious birthday-themed beverages were delicious thick and creamy flavored drinks that gave the senses a delicious sugar-filled rush of sweet decadence.

Spooky smoothies

Fans of Halloween are often in the mood for creepy sweet treats, devilish drinks, and all things spooky when October rolls around. This includes the Monster Mummy Burritos at IHOP and the festively themed vampire, cobweb, and spooky donuts that you might find at Krispy Kreme. Many shops and restaurants get their trick-or-treat faces on by offering special Halloween treats and that includes Wawa. 

Wawa frequently sells themed beverages for Halloween to celebrate the festivities. In 2018, Wawa's secret menu offered the chocolate gummy worm-filled Graveyard Smash, the Fang-O Mango, and a Franken-Mint Macchiato (via PhillyVoice). 

In 2019, Wawa featured three more cream smoothies: Spellbinding Strawberry, Mystical Mango, and Blueberry Pom Reader (as per Food & Wine). These smoothies had more of a witchy theme and were all topped with magical-looking golden sprinkles. It'll be exciting to wait and see which sweet and spooky offerings Wawa will create the next time that Halloween rolls around. 

Red Bull infusions

Energy drinks are highly common: While hot caffeinated drinks like tea and coffee are the drinks that people typically turn to, beverages like Monster Energy and Red Bull have become increasingly popular, and numerous Americans across the country use these drinks to remain energized throughout a long workday. Red Bull is one of the more popular energy drink companies. While the Red Bull brand sells numerous flavors of drinks, you can also make some pretty fun drinks using Red Bull as a mix or as a base. 

One of Wawa's secret menu items takes the energizing Red Bull drink and infuses it with tropical and fresh flavors (via Twitter). Wawa has released two secret menu drinks: The Volcano Blast infused Red Bull with a dragon fruit lemonade, as well as the "Tidal Rush," which combines the energy drink with blue raspberry lemonade.

Both drinks look absolutely beautiful and contain hues of pink, orange, blue, and yellow to match the respective flavors. Even if you aren't a fan of energy drinks, you will probably get a kick out of these fruity, sweet, and delicious Red Bull lemonades. 

Valentine's Day smoothies

Valentine's Day is the perfect occasion for chocolates, cards, or just showing someone how much you care about them. Whether you're buying someone a bottle of fine wine, or showing yourself a little love by making your favorite chocolate recipe or drink, Valentine's Day is ideal for a little indulgence. 

Wawa offers a few delicious, fantastic treats. Wawa may have strawberry sprinkled donuts similar to the Strawberry Frosted donuts at Dunkin' Donuts (via Facebook). However, the Wawa secret menu offers some special treats for Valentine's day festivities.

Wawa has three different secret smoothies on offer during the love-filled month of February in 2019: Chocolate Covered Strawberry, White Chocolate Truffle, and Double Chocolate Truffle Cream Smoothies (via HerCampus). Each of these drinks is served with whipped cream and chocolate chips. Overall, the smoothies were perfect for the Valentine's Day holiday. Although Wawa offers several chocolate-based treats, these smoothies were a true chocolate lover's delight. 

Swedish Fish Blue Splash lemonades

Swedish Fish are a fun candy that makes for a sweet treat. These small, red, fish-shaped gummies are commonly found in the candy aisles of grocery stores in bright yellow and blue boxes just waiting to be taken home and enjoyed. Swedish Fish also make for a great addition to other sweet desserts. In addition to being featured as an Oreo flavor, Swedish Fish can also be used as a topping for ice cream sundaes. The candy works quite well in drinks, too, and can be used to make incredibly sweet and enjoyable beverages. 

In July of 2019, Wawa's offered two bright blue lemonade drinks, each filled with the red fishy candies we all know and love: The Blue Splash Frozen Lemonade, a slushie-like drink with whipped cream on top, and the Blue Splash Iced Lemonade (via KnowPhilly). Some Wawa fans took to Facebook to post about the Swedish Fish lemonade. This drink feels like a hot summer day at the beach. If this item was on Wawa's regular menu, it probably would've been hugely popular.

Mint-er Wonderland drinks

When the cold weather hits and the air becomes brisk, you may find yourself craving a hot drink such as a hot peppermint mocha from McDonald's or Starbucks, along with other enjoyable mint chocolate desserts, like peppermint bark. Wawa often offers winter and Christmas holiday specials like sweet eggnog. However, they also have featured minty, frozen surprises for those who know where to look.

In 2018, Wawa's offered the "Mint-er Wonderland" menu, which included three drinks: Peppermint Steamer, Peppermint Bark Cream Smoothie, and peppermint hot chocolate (via Phillymag). These drinks had a wonderfully rich yet uplifting quality that really conveyed the holiday spirit. The Peppermint Bark Cream Smoothie was served topped with whipped cream and was particularly appealing (via Twitter). 

According to Phillymag, the menu also included a peppermint hot chocolate, with chocolate syrup drizzled on top, and a peppermint steamer. All these drinks were equally as perfect for the holiday season. Wawa's fun holiday treats do much to ensure that its keen patrons are rewarded with a minty, merry treat.

Strawberry Jalapeño Lemonade

Many of Wawa's secret menu items are sweet and include fruity lemonades, seasonal smoothies, and sugary milkshakes. Wawa's Strawberry Jalapeño Lemonade does have hints of sweetness but also has a spicy kick. Jalapeño may not be the first ingredient you consider putting into a sweet drink. You may be more accustomed to seeing jalapeño in cheese bread, pizza, or any other savory dish. However, in 2019, Wawa added the Strawberry Jalapeño Lemonade to its range of sweeter secret drinks as well. 

Wawa's strawberry lemonade with jalapeños may not be the most conventional of lemonade flavors; however, it was a secret menu offering that was advertised by Wawa. As a post on the chain's  Twitter Page suggested, "Not to get jalapeño business, but we think you should check out the Touch Screen." 

This drink held an exciting appeal and offered an unusual secret menu selection for customers looking for a spicy-sweet drink. Patrons who ordered this drink undoubtedly enjoyed its blend of fiery and sugary flavors.
