    No not really majority of time I don't try or taste unless I was going to buy it like you said at bakers delight or at ice cream stores etc

    Lol I have pondered this myself!

    I did try something at woolies the other day, it was a cooked up easy packet type meal thing, tasted it, liked it, then the lady said you just need to add meat, onions, a tin of tomatoes, small jar of tomato paste and a tub of cream then serve it with rice".... hmmm... no.... I don't consider adding 6 more Ingredients to a recipe base "just". lol.

    But I say no if I wouldn't be interested in buying it. Because I wouldnt want to try it! But if it's chocolate, I might not buy it RIGHT THEN but I might get it next time if I like it better than what I normally get.

    Absolutely! Usually they are just chasing you down trying to make you take a sample so why would I say no? I usually get dd to have it though.

    I will admit to sampling stuff at bakers delight in their little sample containers. I can eat bread, but rolls and similar are not something I can really do... So I have a tiny bit of their garlic bread thing and enjoy... Cos it's bite sized so I can actually have it without spending heaps and eating none of it. Lol

    Exactly this

    Yes, I totally do. But I must be completely unobservant as I NEVER see it! Every time I walk past a chocolate shop I look out for freebies, and I swear I must have spotted them about twice in my life. So I figure 34 years of scouring chocolate shop windows, only to be disappointed, means that they definitely owe me free samples...

    not usually. once a cafe was handing out samples of their pizza style thingo...anywho it was so good i didnt get one that day, but i took dh for lunch their the following week because of it. so it did its job.

    i dont think the place would expect a time limit on sample trying to buying. lol.

    Yep, I'll take it if it's something I'm interested in. Just because I don't want to buy it now, doesn't mean I won't like it and buy it later.
    I always try whatever's on offer at Bakers Delight etc, because it's how I've worked out my favorite breads .

    I do take them because I feel bad for the person handing them out.

    Rarely. I'm allergic to eggs so nothing touches my lips unless I know it's egg free. Takes too long to ask or explain so I just say 'no thanks'.
