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.
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.
