    I know it's rude but honestly I hate that my kids are so often offered a lollipop, or chocolate or some other random crap food that I don't allow them to eat so I am not the nicest to them because I don't think they should be shoving these things in to any kids faces, but discreetly asking the parents so they can actually have the chance to say no.
    I know it's nothing like having a child with allergies- but we went into Target one morning and an old lady (target employee) WHISTLED to my oldest DD, called her over and literally shoved a balloon in each of my girls hands and RAN AWAY!!!! I couldn't believe it!! I was furious- mainly because I had just said no to DD1 asking for a balloon because I knew I would end up getting blinded by them and run into someone or something (which happened). I just couldn't believe she actually ran away!

    I rarely see anyone handing out sample. I'm so deprived. I like the cheese and dip samples at markets though, and I always eat them. But when I have seen supermarket sample stuff it's always gross food I would never buy. I take the Bakers Delight samples for DS though.

    Around here they are not allowe to offer children anything, the only way for a child to get something is for the parent to make the decision, reasons being serious food allergies.
    Not so long ago we walked past a ribeena stand in the supermarket and she knew it was for the kids but had to pass it to me so that I could give it to my children.
    Usually we see at least one sample thing happening at my local supermarket, sometimes cakes, sometimes meat, sometimes chocolate, drinks, lollies and meal bases. I love them and will stop and try if interested!!!

    I don't usually try things. I agree with trying it now because you might buy it in the future.

    Sometimes I buy my kids a hotdog and milkshake from Wendy's and they give us all a little bit of ice cream to try. We accept even tho we are not going to buy any.

    Totally agree with you!

    I restaurant I used to work at offered free ice-cream/desert with every kids meal.

    I always asked 'mum' on the sly with lip reading/hand signals if the kids were allowed their desert.

    I try if it's something I might buy in the future, for sure! Or if it's yummy I try regardless.

    Although one place I would only ever try if I intended to buy is a craft market stall.
