Have you ever been in a grocery store and seen someone sampling food before they buy it? According to recent stats, a surprising number of people do just that – around one-third of all grocery store shoppers admit to trying a food before they buy it. Not me – I’m a little wary of germs and contamination!
The idea of eating food that someone else has touched doesn’t exactly thrill me. But I can understand the appeal of trying something before buying it, especially if you’re unsure whether you’ll like it. Use common sense regarding food hygiene – who knows who touched it first? They might have dirty hands!
