What to do when the power goes out in the whole neighborhood right as you are getting ready to get out the Thanksgiving leftovers to re-heat for dinner?  Put the kids in the car and run up to Thorntons!  This is exactly the situation I found myself in the other night when we had returned home from a long day away from the house.  I was already late getting dinner on the table and the kids were whiny.  All of a sudden it was pitch black!  I waited for several minutes, telling myself that power was sure to come back on!  But, to no avail.  So, we rode up to our nearest Thorntons!  There are so many great options for the kids in the new Real Kitchen there!  I know I can trust Thorntons cooks to feed my kids real ingredients, real food, in a clean/safe environment!

Thorntons believes you should be able to get quality and convenience – even when you're on the go. They have updated select stores to include real kitchens with real cooks handcrafting real food from delicious, high-quality ingredients so you can fill up while you fuel.  They've cooked up a whole new menu of crave-worthy food that's good to go, and great to eat!

From the minute you walk in the door you notice the great smelling food and the larger layout floor plan with a real kitchen. There are cooks behind the counter making you real food  in ovens, with fresh ingredients.  The Hot Plate area serves up wonderful items between 6am and 6pm.  They have unique flavors and change things up every month or so to always give you something new to experience.  The kids love the hot dogs and the nacho bar!

The food they serve is what sets Thorntons apart from others!  While they do not do made to order, there truly is something for every one!  

They have an enormous toppings bar that is unlimited.  So, you can go in and top whatever you buy with so many different choices.  The sauces are also free.

If you want to stick to healthier options, visit their fresh deli case with sandwiches, fruit, and healthy selections.  This is what I chose from!  The kids even picked out fruit, which I loved.

Their Fizz freeze station, fountain drinks with nugget ice, and coffee bar offers every choice under the sun.  New for fall is flavored cappuccinos and drinks like pumpkin spice latte and apple cider! You can even stop in just to get nugget ice if you want, for only $.50.  We all love the nugget ice.  My kids are weird and like to mix various flavored sodas so I let them every once in awhile!  I stick with the hot stuff that has all the caffiene!

Thorntons offers a rewards card program good on everything so be sure to sign up if you haven't already.  Every 7th fountain drink is free and you get special offers through email as well!  

I even ended up letting the kids get ice cream with sprinkles from the toppings bar!
