Do you want to try for free the Jack in the Box Jack’s Blazin’ Chicken Sandwich that we just reviewed? And then after you try it, do you want to eat a lot of other Jack in the Box food? Well then, you’re at the right place my friend because, thanks to the fine folks at Jack in the Box, we’re giving away $50 worth of Jack’s Ca$h Cards to two lucky Impulsive Buy readers.

For those of you who haven’t read our review, Jack’s Blazin’ Chicken Sandwich features a spicy chicken fillet topped with Ghost Pepper Ranch sauce, grilled onions, spicy jalapeño slices, Swiss-style cheese, lettuce and tomatoes all on a jumbo bun. The sandwich has a lot of flavor, but didn’t pack the heat I was expecting. Although my tolerance for spicy food might be a bit higher than most, so some of you might find it to be blazin’.

ANNOUNCEMENT: Meet Impulsive Buy Writer Trevor

Written by | April 1, 2014

Topics: Announcement

A few years ago, while sitting inattentively in one of the more boring college classes I took, I somehow happened upon The Impulsive Buy. I can’t remember the review that I read, but it made me laugh my ass off. Being in class I tried to stifle the laughter, but that just made me start to cry, prompting the teacher to ask if I was OK. In that awkward moment I told myself, “One day I’ll write for that site.” Well, that day has arrived.

I’m Trevor, and I’m honored to be the newest contributor to join the ranks of the TIB crew.

Some boring background on me: I grew up in Rochester, NY, where I lived for all of my life. I went to college in the area and graduated last year. I have my B.S. in journalism, and have written for a few newspapers and a magazine in the past.

I moved to the middle of nowhere in Missouri to take a reporting job at a weekly newspaper. It’s been quite the culture shock for me. Not just in moving away from everybody I know, but also leaving Wegmans, the greatest supermarket chain in the world behind. I now do my shopping at a combination of the local crapmarket (I can’t justify calling it super after shopping at Wegmans), Dollar General and the Walmart that’s 30 minutes outside of town. Suffice it to say, I’ve been humbled.

The silver lining in my relocation is the different fast food restaurants out here. I nearly fainted when I saw a Sonic Drive-In. There wasn’t one anywhere near where I lived in New York, but of course we were still shown the commercials everyday, resulting in quite a few cases of Sonic blue balls. Good thing I wont have to worry about that anymore! There’s also Hardee’s and Steak ‘n Shake, and I’m fully expecting to give into these new temptations regularly and gain some pounds while I’m out here.

Now for the fun stuff: I have a longtime fascination with Paul Bunyan, and this manifests itself in the form of lame jokes that I want to turn into a comic strip one day. I also want to make a graphic novel about the Gorton’s Fisherman, but I’m keeping that under wraps for a while. Spies and such, you know? Can’t be too careful these days.

I had my first pint of Ben & Jerry’s when I was in second grade, and I still cite the moment as when I lost my virginity. One of my favorite hobbies is having a few too many drinks and then binging on junk food and drunk texts. Damn my lack of self control.

Ice cream, fast food, and chips are the nexus of my snacking universe. I also enjoy trying meals you can easily pop in the oven or microwave. I cook a little bit myself, but I have OCD and a crippling fear of stove tops as a result, so I’m limited to grilling and baking.

Being a journalist, you, the TIB reader should be assured that I will ask the tough questions, and I plan on always getting to the bottom of things! Well, the bottom of the bags and cartons at least.

All that being said, I’m very much looking forward to reviewing some new products for you!
