Happy (Belated) Birthday, Junk Food Betty!

Okay, so it’s like, two weeks late, but I just wanted to say that JFB turned one year old on July 13th!  Hooray!  I know I haven’t been posting a lot lately, but I’ve got some good stuff backlogged (stuffed in my cupboard), and I’m hoping to rev up a little more soon.  I’ve really enjoyed seeing my baby grow, from milestones like my first flame war to having the honor to write for The Impulsive Buy.

Thanks to everyone who has read my blog, especially those who left comments. I love getting comments, whether they be funny, informative, or just telling me I’m a horrible writer. I hope to be informing the Internet about horrible and/or wacky junk food for years to come. Cheers!

News: Gizmodo’s Taste Test Week

The folks over at Gizmodo are running a little thing they call Taste Test. I’ll let them explain it best:

Taste Test is our weeklong tribute to the leaps that occur when technology meets cuisine, spanning everything from the historic breakthroughs that made food tastier and safer to the Earl-Grey-friendly replicators we impatiently await in the future.

They explore everything from turning fast food into gourmet creations to Duracell’s energy drink, with lots of interesting stuff in between.  I strongly suggest you check it out!
