Corner Store Spices Up Summer Menu
SAN ANTONIO -- Summer is getting hotter at Corner Store locations with new offerings and promotions.
On the spicy side, the San Antonio-based retailer is introducing a new Sriracha Club Puff Pie and a Seasoned Pulled Pork Puff Pie in its convenience stores. The Sriracha Club Puff Pie is a flaky, buttery pastry filled with hot ham, turkey, roast beef, pepper jack cheese and sriracha, while the Seasoned Pulled Pork Puff Pie includes roasted red peppers.
Corner Store's $4 lunch includes any flavor puff pie and a 32-ounce drink.
On the sweet side, Corner Store introduced a Sweet, Salty & Spicy Whoopie Pie, a warm-from-the-oven "cake sandwich" with chocolate icing and cake, laced with sriracha and topped with salty pretzel bits. A single whoopie pie retails for 99 cents and a five-pack of small whoopie bites retails for $1.99.
"Sriracha could be the new ketchup," said Richard Poye, Corner Store's director of foodservice. "At Corner Store, we created an assortment of mouthwatering snacks that perfectly complement the spicy tang of rooster sauce. The new offerings are part of Corner Store's strategy to use more culinary ingredients to delight a consumer base that is more hip to foodie trends than ever before."
The new offerings are part of Corner Store's signature line of Fresh Choices foods baked or prepared fresh in the store's kitchen. Other items include cookies, doughnuts, breakfast tacos made with homemade tortillas, and sausage kolaches made with sweet bread.
On the roller grill, Corner Store offers signature-label all-beef hot dogs and sausages on white or wheat buns, including the new Backyard Grilled Sausage.
In addition to Fresh Choices baked and packaged goods, Corner Store locations carry U Force energy and sport drinks, Cibolo Mountain coffee, FC bottled soda, Flavors2Go fountain drinks and 20-ounce ICEES for only $1.
Also this summer, in partnership with Share A Coke, Corner Store is encouraging its Facebook fans to upload a selfie with their Coke and a stand-up display at local Corner Stores for a chance to win a new tablet, a $200 Corner Store gift card or a Coca-Cola cooler.
