In the blogosphere, the trend towards the end of the calendar year is to post Top 10 lists. I’ve read lists that cover the Top 10 Viral Videos, Top 10 Social Networks, Top 10 iPhone Apps, Top 10 Sexy Movie Moments, etc. So I decided to post a list of the Top 10 Most Popular Reviews on The Impulsive Buy in 2010, because I sometimes like to be a sheep. This list is not only based on traffic, but also the number of times it been shared on social networks. So here they are in a particular order:
I’m surprised this ended up on the list since it was posted in mid-December. But I guess a lot of people wondered what the hell a McDonald’s Holiday Pie was and were hypnotized by its radioactive yellow innards.
I think most of the traffic for these came from Hawaii, California and Guam. Did you know Guam has the highest SPAM consumption per capita in the world? I certainly do because my Guam friends keep reminding me.
I didn’t review the XXL Chalupa, but I think this got a lot of traffic because people were wondering how XXL it was. Personally, I think it was more XL than XXL. If it were truly XXL, it would’ve been the size of an NFL regulation football.
Despite my penchant for snorting powders, I have yet to snort the Starbucks VIA Iced Coffee.
There are now three varieties of Hot Pockets SideShots and they all look like boobs (or a butt) when still frozen.
For some reason this video review was seen on YouTube several thousand times. Sadly, that doesn’t count as viral. Maybe if there was more nudity, there would’ve been more views. Dammit. I should’ve shown a nipple.
I still find it strange whenever I have to type “McDonald’s” and “fruit” within the same sentence.
I still have the bottle I opened for the review and it’s still four-fifths full. I plan to stick it in a time capsule to make someone in the future gag.
I really hope they bring these back every year. I also hope someone figures out a way to use them in a real pumpkin pie recipe.
This review was, by far, the most visited TIB review in 2010. And, yes, it’s the third McDonald’s product on this list, which makes it look like we’re getting paid by McDonald’s. But I assure you we’re not. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a warm bath of Big Mac Secret Sauce waiting for me.
