I know Amarillo is getting ever so excited about the Buc-ee's coming to town. It has been a long wait. But we are making progress. If you travel that way near the Amarillo Airport you may have noticed there is actually some work being done.

Very minor but the fact that something is being done just leads to the anticipation. We will soon be able to have Buc-ee's Beaver Nuggets on a daily if we want. As I drove out to the airport the other day I snapped some photos. I just had to. There is some movement out there. So Amarillo is just counting down the days.

What Can We Do While Waiting for Buc-ee's in Amarillo?

If you are as excited as everyone else and just can't wait. Heck, you want to get a jump start on everyone else you can become a Buc-ee's Bud-ee. The ultimate dream job, yes. You can taste test a bunch of their snacks and get paid to do it.

The only catch? Well since the one in Amarillo is not open yet you will have to travel. That wouldn't stop a true Buc-ee's fanatic. We do that anyway. There is no doubt you would be willing to travel if chosen.

You will be given a shopping list. Oh, you will be allowed to veer from that list if you want. You will buy up the snacks, with money they give you, and then you will have to give up your opinion. Here are some of the snacks you can try:

  • Buc-ee’s Beaver Nuggets
  • Sweet and savory kolaches
  • Hippo tacos
  • Barbecue sandwiches
  • Buc-ee’s Lemon Crisps
  • Homemade fudge
  • Buc-ee’s Gummi Bears
  • Banana pudding
  • Biscuits and gravy

If that sounds great already remember you will also be paid one thousand dollars to do just that. Oh and another $250 to pay for your foods to taste test. For all the details and to sign up go HERE.
