ANNOUNCEMENT: New Impulsive Buy Reviewer Adam

Written by | March 21, 2012

Topics: Announcement

Hola, Impulsive Buy readers.
 
I’m Adam, and as the newest member of the The Impulsive Buy team, I’ll be subverting your all too worthwhile endeavor of kicking the “Latte factor” purchases in your life, further playing havoc to your personal economy and giving your mother yet another reason to say “I told you so,” at those dreaded family functions we call “dinner.”

I suppose this is the time when I say something significant about myself to distinguish me from the myriad of other product reviewers on this site and others. Well, I won’t lie — I pretty much meet your standard definition of a blogger. Six years after diving into the world of blogging under the dubious premise of adding to my “portfolio” as a sports writer, I’ve been sucked into the crazy world of link dropping and taking pictures of dollar menu purchases, all the while making every effort to reference obscure Star Wars books and World War II battles. I’ll try to keep those to a minimum here, but I’d be remiss if I didn’t shamelessly plug my own faith and breakfast cereal inspired blog, Option Pitch and Waffle Crisp.  
 
As for my food philosophy, you only need to know three things.

1) I have a stash of French Toast Crunch and Waffle Crisp in my basement that I’m saving for the Cerealpocalypse. 

2) I could survive on a steady diet of boiled chicken liver and frozen peas if need be.

3) The only food I’ve ever found truly repulsive is the olive.  
 
Needless to say, I won’t be reviewing olives here. Anything else is fair game.

    You… have a stash of French Toast Crunch… hard to be envious when I’m in awe.

    Welcome! HUZZAAH! :)

    First- welcome
    Second- your ability to live on chicken and peas amazes me and reminds me of my boyfriend- I can’t wait to read your reviews

    Hey welcome, looking forward to your reviews here. I always liked both you and Chef at the other site….it’s too bad things didn’t work out between the two of you.

    As far as olives go, have you ever thought about or been asked if you were stranded on a desert island and could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would you choose? Most people choose pizza or cheeseburgers or something. But I was thinking the other day that I could live on just olives. I really do like them that much. I used to hate them as a kid, but now can’t get enough.

  5. C says:

    What led to the GrubGrade exit? Not that it matters too much, I visit both here and there equally.

  6. Drew says:

    Welcome, Adam!

  7. Natalie says:

    You are correct; olives are terrible.

  8. Zachary Jacob Zblewski says:

    This reminds me of the time Manning left the Colts and went to the Broncos.

  9. Adam says:

    +1 Manavee. Quite the analogy given my other interests, although one would have a difficult time associating me with a battering ram type runner.

      I was going to go with Tebow at first, but he is hit-or-miss at football so I didn’t want to offend you lol. It’s not like you’re hit-or-miss on reviews.

  10. Noodlez says:

    Man I love green olives!! I love just snacking on them, sometimes add some cheese cubes. That is living high on the hog right there I tell you what. My doctor on the other hand is none to happy with that and my sodium intake level. lol

    Excited to see you here Adam. I was reading you review not knowing who it was and thought to myself wow that sounds just like Adam. You’ve definately got a great “voice” man.
