ANNOUNCEMENT: The Impulsive Buy’s 2019 Season of Giving

Welcome to The Impulsive Buy’s 2019 Season of Giving!

(I’ll pause here to let you all celebrate)

Now the bad news.

In previous years, we did multiple prize drawings for things like gift cards and mystery boxes. This year, we’re giving away ONE large mystery box to a lucky Impulsive Buy reader. What’s in the mystery box? Well, it wouldn’t be a mystery if I told you.

But I will say this, a number of brands have sent me free samples and swag over the past year, so those are some of the items you’ll find in the mystery box. I also have included extras of products I purchased for review.

Among those extras is a product that made my taste buds hate the rest of me for a few days. But I didn’t write a review about it because it’s not available in stores. Hopefully, it doesn’t come out in stores. What is it? You’ll have to win this box to find out.

So how can you win this mystery box?


To enter this prize drawing for this Mystery Box, leave a comment with THIS post that answers the following question:

Out of all the new food products that came out in 2019, what were your favorites?

Don’t forget to fill out the email field because we’ll be emailing the randomly selected winner for his or her mailing address.

We will stop accepting entries on December 31, 2019 at 9:00 p.m. Hawaii Standard Time. Only one comment allowed per person, and it’s only open to U.S. residents 18 years old or older.

Just a note: If you post a comment and it doesn’t show up, it ended up in our comment spam folder for some strange reason. There’s no need to attempt to post another comment. I’ll be pulling those out of the comment spam vortex regularly.

Good luck!

FINE PRINT: The Impulsive Buy promises your email address will not be used to send you emails about how you owe us $5.99 via PayPal or else your account will be limited. The Impulsive Buy also promises your mailing address will not be used to send you the tears of a unicorn contained in a crystal bottle that was blown using the fiery breath of a dragon. Bribes will not be accepted. The Impulsive Buy will not be responsible for lost mail or damaged mail.

        1. Tastykake Cookie Dough Juniors. I cannot get enough of them! I hope they are around for a long time.

    1. The New Lay’s Potato Chips flavors such as the Beer & Cheese Chips and etc. I always look forward to what flavors they will come up with for the new year.

  1. Sonic’s Big Scoop Cookie Dough Sundae and McDonald’s Cinnamon Cookie Latte! Both so delicious I had to close my eyes for a minute.

  2. The cinnamon kit kats are so underrated and amazing. The oreosplosion earlier this year was good too

  3. The orange dreamsicle monster reign Energy drink is definitely one of my favorites. The oh snap spicy pickles are also up there.

  4. My favorite product that came out this year had to be the Maple Creme and Dark Chocolate Oreos. Oh my God they were amazing.

  5. I enjoyed the new Kit Kat flavors. I especially liked the dark chocolate mint kit kats and the cinnamon ones.

  6. Time for a list off the top of my head: Oreo’s latte thins and Pistachio thins. The sauce from McDonald’s Grand McExtreme Bacon Burger. Hazelnut Spread M&M’s. The return of Planters’ Cheez Balls. Almost every steambag of pasta made from veggies. Frankford’s Mallo-licious Banana shaped (and flavored) marshmallow. Dark Berry Dr Pepper.

    1. The popeyes chicken sandwich (spicy!!) Was a big one for me for sure. Also the Grand McExtreme coming to the US. I normally don’t do a lot of fast food but those are definitely guilty pleasures

  7. Snickers Pecan was the best thing, I really hope they release it in stores. Though a $2 pricepoint for a single candy bar might not sell well.

  8. Dark chocolate Oreos; Kit-Kat Duos mint & dark chocolate; Cheez-It Snap’d double cheese.

    Thanks to all the Impulsive Buy reviewers – I hope 2020 brings you lots of great new products to review!

  9. Mountain Dew Maui Burst, Taco Bell’s Toasted Chalupa, and their new Electric Blue Raspberry Freeze is really good

  10. I love anything peppermint and chocolate, so mint dark chocolate Kit Kats were my favorite from this year!

  11. Favorite new “food” is the canned costco iced coffee, but I LUV this website and looking at all the new foods and packaging and pretending I’m eating each one.

  12. My favorite new product out this year has been the cookie and cream Twix. They remind me of my childhood.

  13. I very much enjoyed:

    Halo Top’s Dairy-Free Pumpkin Spice Frozen Dessert
    Trader Joes Jalapeno Sauce
    Trader Joes Mushroom Umami Seasoning
    Skinny Pop Gingerbread Popcorn

  14. I love the posts about restaurants in my area (Hardees, Taco Bell, Arbys and Burger King). Numerous times I’ve shared these posts with co-workers and we go try out the new menu items for lunch!

  15. Wendy’s maple bacon chicken…the line was so long it got me a free sandwich coupon for the wait!..oreos dark chocolate and maple and sugar cookie toast crunch

  16. Surprisingly, I really like the Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup Lays! The mystery (churro) Oreos were great, too.

  17. Mountain Dew Holiday Burst (pomogranate/cherry)
    Trader Joe’s Strawberry Rose Jam (like Turkish Delight in a jam–delicious)
    Trader Joe’s Ginger Snowball Cookies (sweet and so addictive!)
    Trader Joe’s I Dream of Chocolate Cake (DIVINE!)
    Tate’s Bakeshop Hot Chocolate Cookies (crisp, buttery and delicious)
    Wild 4 Ginger Root Infused Maple Syrup (perfectly balanced)
    Coca Cola Cinnamon (love this)

  18. My favorite for this year was definitely the Lay’s Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup Potato Chips. It was spot on for the flavor of the real thing!

  19. I’m a big fan of the Green Giant cauliflower gnocchi. Nice to have options other than the Trader Joe’s version.

  20. My favorite new product of 2019 was Oreo’s The Most Stuf. It was the ultimate Oreo flavor and the people who said it was too much cream are not real junk food aficionados like me!

  21. I love tbe Lays potato chips that come out every year. The Game Fuel energy drinks. The beyond/impossible burgers.

  22. Kit Kat Duos, the Impossible Whopper and the Toasted Cheddar Chalupa were my best new items of the year.
