ANNOUNCEMENT: New Reviewer Jeff S.

Hey there! I’m Jeff. Although I see The Impulsive Buy already has a Jeff, so I guess you guys can call me Jeff S. Or is that too confusing? You could make up some other name for me. Hmm. What’s another name? Baxter DuFrayne. No. That’s weird. I’ll just stick to Jeff S.

Junk food has always played an integral role in my life, from my bizarre pre-adolescent obsession with stale Cheez Doodles and off-brand peanut butter cups, to my teenage years when 7-Eleven’s Go-Go Taquitos comprised a solid 83% of my personal food pyramid, to my current opinions on McDonald’s recent dipping sauce shake-up. (They’re PRETTY controversial, be warned.)

Simply put, I love putting garbage in my mouth.

Within the junk food sphere, my areas of expertise are soda, cereal, and candy. More specifically, though, I love season-exclusive items. I don’t care if it’s made from fiberglass and expired iguana kibble -– if it’s dyed shamrock green, or speckled with candy hearts, or shaped like a pine tree, or dusted with nutmeg and cinnamon, I will purchase it. And I will consume it.

Reading my reviews, you’ll also find that I like to like stuff –- sorry, just had to flex that ever-useful bachelor’s degree in writing ;-D -– so I refuse to be hypercritical just for the sake of having something to say. At the same time, I’m not overly forgiving. For example: Pepsi Holiday Spice was slightly too acidic. Yes, someone FINALLY had the backbone to say what we’ve all been thinking these past ten years.

But yeah, as a longtime fan of TIB, having the opportunity to join the site as a contributor fills me with a tremendous amount of happiness. Thank you for having me, and I look forward to discussing salty, greasy, and sugary foodstuffs with all of you!

  1. Welcome to the fold, Jeff S.! Maybe you could go by Jeffs? Anyways, hope you don’t live in the Arizona area because I’m also obsessed with holiday and limited edition junk food, and I will FIGHT you for the last Cheetos Bag of Bones if I meet you in a Target store. (Did I mention welcome? We’re cool right?)

    1. Haha, thank you, Kelley! No worries — I’m all the way over on the east coast, so those Cheetos are all yours. 🙂

    1. Thanks for the welcome, Sylvia! I hope I get to cover as many seasonal items as possible so we can talk about them together.

  2. Welcome Jeff!

    Or might I suggest you go by “el Jefe?” Either way, I’m excited to see you are a fellow cerealcoholic! We have much to discuss…
