Happy 7th Birthday, Junk Food Betty!

Birthday Cake by Theresa Thompson, on FlickrI’m actually a day late to my own birthday! Whoops! Well, another year around the sun, and we’re still hanging in there, wolfing down burgers and drowning in Oreos. And I couldn’t be happier about it.

Here’s to another year of weird flavors, limited editions, and special holiday treats. Thank you so much for stopping by and reading my crazy ramblings. I really do appreciate it, and I hope you’ll stick around for another year!

Happy 6th Birthday, Junk Food Betty!

Birthday Cake by Theresa Thompson, on FlickrToday is Junk Food Betty’s 6th birthday! I never thought I’d make it this far, but then again, I think that every year.

Once again, I want to thank loyal readers, newcomers, browsers, and those who leave comments for reading all my silly words (but probably just looking at the pictures).

Here’s to another year of crazy food! Cheers!

Happy 5th Birthday, Junk Food Betty!

Birthday Cake by Theresa Thompson, on FlickrToday marks Junk Food Betty’s 5th Birthday!

I’d rather be posting a review than a birthday announcement, but this is a good time to apologize for my lack of posts recently. I recently moved, which is obviously chaotic, and threw off my already inconsistent rhythm.

That said, I want to thank all of my loyal readers and let you know that there are reviews to come! Five years is a pretty long time in Internet years, but I’m glad to be sticking with it, and as always, am grateful to everyone who has found me one way or another.

Here’s to another year of crazy junk foods and some more guffaws!

Happy 4th Birthday, Junk Food Betty!

Birthday Cake by Theresa Thompson, on FlickrYep, today marks four years of inconsistent and sometimes infrequent posts on Junk Food Betty! Four years of disappointment, unexpected deliciousness, absolute disgust, crazy gimmicks, and rants about everything from chipotle to use of the word EXXXTREME to things that should not be meat-flavored.

Oh, and puns. So many puns.

I hope you’ve all enjoyed reading JFB as much as I enjoy writing it. Sometimes I get frustrated with writer’s block, but sometimes I manage to fart out a turn of phrase that I can’t help but be proud of. Most of all, I love the idea of making just one reader smile, all while delivering subjective information and delving deep into the world of crazy food and marketing tactics.

Here’s to another year of writing about the new, the weird, and the “what the hell?” I’ll follow them down the rabbit hole so you don’t have to.

Happy 3rd Birthday, Junk Food Betty!

Here we are, celebrating three years of the good, the bad, the odd, and bacon where bacon should not be. Thanks to everyone who has read my silly ramblings, skipped the ramblings to look at the pictures, and those who have left comments telling me how wrong I was about this or that.

It is a labor of love that I am glad to share with the Internet, and one that I will continue as long as those who create fast food and junk food come up with items that amuse and/or amaze me.

Either that, or one day I will eat something so terrifying that my body refuses to take any more of this abuse. One or the other.

Have any favorite posts you’ve read over the past three years? Let me know in the comments section! I look forward to hearing from you. Cheers!

Happy 2nd Birthday, Junk Food Betty!

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!
