Wawa Hoagie of shame

I was on the road from Chincoteague, VA to Lewes DE yesterday morning.  Where I live in Virginia there are no close Wawa's.  If you do not have Wawa in your area, they are only the most wonderful gas station/convenience stores in the world!  They have a kiosk where you type in the sandwich you want and Voila!  It magically appears in front of you (after about 5 minutes and once you have payed).  So, going the attempt at healthy route I thought I'd skip the Mickey D's and try for some place where I can build my own "healthy" meal.  I had my blackberry with me and typed in the nutrition facts on pre-packed vegetables with light ranch dressing.  2 points, hurray!  Then I tried to log on to the Wawa website to get nutrition information for my sandwich but the link was not compatible with the handheld.  So I shrugged my shoulders, said to myself "this won't be so bad" and I went ahead and ordered the following:
Turkey hoagie
whole wheat shorti roll
no cheese
light on the mayonnaise
I also got a small chicken noodle soup because I LOVE IT!  Even though it's about 100 outside I still love soup no matter what time of year.
When I returned home I got on the computer and checked out Wawa's site.  They had a whole section that allowed you to build your meal and then revealed the nutrition facts.  Are you ready for the unveiling?  The soup brought in a measly 2 points but the sandwich...drum roll please........14 points!  Are you kidding me?  For a turkey sandwich on whole wheat!  With all those veggies?!  In hindsight I could have skipped the mayo or replaced it with mustard but I didn't even get cheese!  That's more than half my points for the whole day!  Well, Wawa, I still love you even though you tricked me, and I will still go to you when I am in need of a sandwich, but next time I will get a whole wheat sandwich (no hoagie) without mayo and maybe I'll try the chicken.

Until next time, eat, drink and be yourself!

    I work in the same parking lot as a Wawa. Their prepacked Chicken Caesar Salad is 11 points. Never again.... I usually grab the hummus and pita and pineapple if I haven't planned well and find myself there for lunch.
