Food review: Tostitos vs. a discount brand of tortilla chips - Bachelor on the Cheap

By Mike Thayer

Tostitos
Don't buy this....

Don't pay too much for tortilla chips!

If you're stuck on buying the name brand, stop it.  You're throwing money away.  Why pay over $3 maybe $4 for a name brand when you can get a discount brand of tortilla chips that are every bit as good for less than $2?

Contreras, Lester lead Cubs past Braves 8-3

CHICAGO -- Willson Contreras wasn't happy with a called second strike in the second inning. He took his displeasure out on the next pitch, hitting it out of the park.

Drink Review: Bird Dog Strawberry Whiskey - Bachelor on the Cheap

By Mike Thayer

Blended and flavored whiskeys are red hot right now, consumer demand for brown spirits continues to rise with American Whiskey in particular seeing some phenomenal sales growth.

Regular readers know that I am a fan of flavored whiskey, I've always got a bottle of something in my freezer for a chilled shot or flavored specialty in the liquor cabinet to enjoy on the rocks.  My favorite in all this tasting fun so far, has been Yukon Jack Jacapple.
