Hungry Hungry Jefe #5: Grippo’s BBQ Beef Jerky

It’s Memorial Day weekend the perfect time to fire up that grill. If you’re like me a bag of Grippo’s BBQ potato chips is being consumed as you wait for them delicious burgers and dogs to cook. These chips are a staple of any holiday cookout, the barbecue seasoning is the perfect blend of spices that keep eating one an impossible task. That’s why when I saw Grippo’s BBQ Beef Jerky made by Pap’s I had to give it a try, watch the video below to see what I thought of this twist on a Cincinnati Classic.

Hungry Hungry Jefe: Kentucky Bourbon Chocolate

Welcome to another episode of Hungry Hungry Jefe, on today’s episode we test out Buffalo Trace Distillery’s Kentucky Bourbon Chocolate. Buffalo Trace is a distillery located in Frankfort Kentucky and has been around 200 years. If you would like more information about Buffalo Trace Distillery visit their website.

Chocolate is hard to mess up and adding bourbon flavor only made it taste that much sweeter. However, the sweetest part of this video has got to be the introduction of T-Bone the bourbon chugging machine; he will be doing video reviews with me from time to time and yes ladies he is single! If you are a Cowboy/ Buckeyes/ Red Sox fan or just enjoy long walks on the beach and snuggling, slide into T-bone’s DMs (@MillironTBone) jump on the train now ladies before he is too famous!

A quick disclaimer before you watch the video: When you chug too much bourbon the number of reshoot attempts has to be limited and the video quality suffers. T-Bone looks damn good doing it though!

Today I Tried: Alert Caffeinated Gum

I’m not a coffee person. I can honestly say I’ve never tried a cup before in my life. The bitter smell never appealed to me, so as an adult needing a morning pick-me-up, I usually went with an energy drink (Red Bull, Monster Ultra and Kick Start’s being my go-to).

Well, apparently, energy drinks are awful for your heart, and since I’d like to stay alive to see a Cincinnati team finally make a post-season run in the late 2030’s, I figure I’d try to find some other way to wake up in the morning. The other day at Kroger, I saw this caffeine gum called Alert in the check-out aisle.

Seeing Griffey Hold Up That Reds Jersey…

I’ll never forget it. I probably still have the newspaper clipping that my grandma cut out for me somewhere in my basement, along with the rest of my baseball cards and memorabilia from my childhood.

18 years ago this past weekend, the Reds fortunes were supposed to change. Griffey was the end-all-be-all baseball star of the 90’s. Shoes, magazines, video games, television commercials. Griffey was everything. If you grew up in the 90’s, you were a fan of Michael Jordan, and you were a fan of Junior. I turned 14 two weeks after he signed to my hometown team, and got two different Griffey jerseys for my birthday. The city was buzzing with Reds talk, and dreams of another World Series run, which hadn’t happened in a decade.
