For the most part, we all love living in Casper, but there are a few downsides to being in a sparsely populated area. Prime example, lack of food options that our neighbors in Colorado enjoy (Chick-fil-A, Smashburger, etc.). But lately, it's even a problem when it comes to grocery shopping.

Here are five items I have noticed that are fairly common in metropolitan area stores, that you just can't find in Casper, at least not on a consistent basis.

  • Claussen Hot and Spicy Pickles
  • Beef Bacon
  • Beef Sausage Links
  • Gyro Meat
  • Puff Pastries

Now keep in mind, there are times when individual local stores carry these items (or some variation), but there seems to be no rhyme or reason as to why they're not available year round.
