ANNOUNCEMENT: New Impulsive Buy Reviewer Meghan

Hiya to all my fellow junk food foodies out there! My name’s Ms. Meghan, and I’m ever so very pleased to be the newest addition to The Impulsive Buy’s elite circle of reviewers!

So, who am I?

Well, I’m a lot of things!

  • A full-time university student perusing a degree in Health Promotion.
  • A part-time worker in my town’s local health-food store.
  • I’m a pretty good cook.
  • I have a ServSafe Manager Certification.
  • I make homemade soaps and lotions.
  • I brew my own kombucha.
  • I’m 100 pounds lighter than I was five years ago.

And I bet by now you’re wondering, “What the heck is THIS girl doing here writing junk food reviews?” My response is that it’s all about balance, my fair foodie friends! While I certainly enjoy my new-normal diet of fruit, yogurt, and protein powder, I still find it comforting to indulge in all of my old staples.

My culinary know-how is more likely to be put to use in making cakes and pastries than it is in making some kale and quinoa bowl. If you offer me ice cream or birthday cake-flavored anything, there’s no way I’m going to turn you down. And don’t tell my coworkers, but my recycled kombucha bottle is just as likely to be filled with Mountain Dew Code Red as it is actual kombucha.

Seeing new treats in the forbidden inner aisles of the grocery store and trying to nag my poor mother into buying them for me has been something that I’ve always gotten endless joy from. But now that I’m all grown up and have my own set of wheels to get me to the store and my own money to buy snacks with, there’s no longer anyone or anything that can choc-block* me!

So, considering that about 20,000 new food products come out each year (according to the USDA Economic Research Service, at least) I guess it’s time for me to get munching! Arm yourselves with sporks and grabs some digestive enzymes, guys, because it’s going to be a wild ride!

*Choc-block – When one individual blocks their friend/family member/acquaintance from buying and eating some well-deserved chocolate.

  2. That’s pretty cool. I’ve lost almost 100 lbs in the past two years and sometimes wonder why I still read this blog since I rarely indulge in the kinds of foods it features anymore. Then again, when I DO indulge in junk food I guess it’s fun to be well-informed about the newest junk foods out there.

  3. I’m so glad I found this blog while searching for some other junk food item….I’m completely obsessed with this blog and adore the content! Welcome aboard Meghan and I look forward to reading your posts!

  4. One of the most likeable introduction i read here on tib. (not that all the others are bad. Seriously, they aren’t! :))

    Welcome to “the family” and i hope to read a lot more from you in the future! 🙂

    Cheers! 🙂
