Jeremy Selwyn tries every snack he can find so you don’t have to. In a profile of Selwyn and his long-running snack review blog,, the Hungry Beast digs out the facts on how the site got its start: to kill hours at a monotonous newspaper job where Selwyn would “pass time by buying creative-sounding snacks at a local convenience store.”

Selwyn’s best finds come from other countries (particularly England, where he recently tried Cajun squirrel-flavored potato chips), and from Asian markets, where anything that can be flavored with seafood, will be. Selwyn is also sent complimentary cases of snacks from companies hoping to garner a review. Hey, Selwyn, don’t forget the little people who still have to buy their swill from the grocery store.
