Are you an Impulse Buyer?


Well...since I started my Kraft University DVDs last week, I have been thinking a lot about how seventy two percent of ALL cookie and cracker sales come from an impulse buy. I don't know about you but when I go to the store, hardly ever do I put chocolate cakesters or dove chocolate with nuts on my list. Wait, do I make a list? I think I impulse buy everything. Wow, they are right. Not too many people put these things on there list. That's were the devil of my job comes in. My job is to put the product right in front of the buyer's face and make it look so good that the buyer skips over their grocery list of laundry detergent and bread to get to the wonderfully new fattening Fugee Oreos. Well, sorry about. You have to admit though, our taste buds don't lie.

What do you buy that is an impulse buy?

wow, I guess I never thought about it. I rarely make grocery lists so .....everything! I bought a thing of oreos the other day because they were on Jakes eye level (thanks to those friendly folkes at Nabisco.) and there was just no way around them....hey why not they were only 2 bucks! What a deal.

This is a very thought provoking questions...I would have to say that I impulse buy anything that's new at the grocery store. Those "new" signs always get me. Especially when it comes to junk food! My new favorite candy bar is Reece's Whips. They're a combination of 3 Musketeers and Reece's Peanut butter cups. They are divine! Love all your latest posts. Happy Birthday to Haley!
