Wawa Has Announced “The Schwarbomb” Will Be Added To Their Lineup
Roster move: Wawa has announced “The Schwarbomb” will be added to their lineup. The new starter is dynamic and versatile.
Okay, done playing here. Wawa is introducing a new drink on their menu!
Named after Philadelphia Phillies beloved outfielder Kyle Schwarber, the new drink is coming just before the team’s home opener (now moved to April 7, 2023). If you don’t know, “Schwarbombs” are what we call Kyle’s home runs, which he hits a lot of.
Wawa had a similar promotion happen during the Phillies World Series run in 2022. Someone noticed that Kyle Schwarber hit the most home runs during the franchise’s annual “Hoagiefest,” so they announced “Schwarberfest.” It was essentially an extension of their summer promotion, and it seemed to work.
So started the relationship between the home-run-hitter and Wawa. And the new drink is sure to be a grand slam. It’s a mango and dragon fruit-flavored drink, with energy and other ingredients that they say will boost your immunity. The drink comes iced or frozen like a slushy. It’ll be added to their line of Rechargers and it comes in any size.
Get this. The drink costs $4.88. That symbolizes 488 feet. Which is the distance Schwarber’s massive home run in Game 1 of the NLCS went. Clever play, Wawa. Clever indeed. They know their audience well.
Schwarber has continued to do great things for the Phils since the NLCS. He just hit the 200th home run of his career at Yankee Stadium on April 4th. It helped solidify the team’s 4-1 win against the Yankees, their first of the season.
We love him. We’re so glad Wawa has announced “The Schwarbomb.” What a great way to honor him!
