When you are in a store and they are giving out free samples do you try them? and if you try them do you usually buy the product? I will often try the sample and have occasionally bought the product.

Ok I have to admit the market that I shop at has at least three diffrent ladies at one time handing out samples and coupons, plus the bakery department always has samples out, and I always go shopping on an empty tummy, so I sample everything, sometimes I buy it , or save the coupon till the product comes on sale.

Some I do and some I don't. If it looks like something I may like, I most likely try it...maybe even twice if I can. If it doesn't appeal to me in looks, then no way am I trying it.

Some of them i have to drag you to another part of the store! And have you ever seen food that you didn't think looked good? Because if so i missed that!

as a matter of a fact, I have. I saw a shrimp platter once that did not look appealing to me at all.

That's nice. Most people don't care if they hurt someones feelings or not.

Sometimes I will try the samples, I guess it depends on my mood. Now, if it's a free sample of donuts, then you know I am trying and buying..LOL. If I like the product I will buy it. I think sampling works out well actually.

I will try it if it's something that looks like it would interest me. I remember they were giving out samples of the new trash bags that stretch real good. I thought they were pretty neat but never did buy any. I never try food samples, I don't know why. I will even go so far as to go way around them when they are handing out food samples.

As long as the salesperson making them is wearing gloves and is clean i have no problem trying a sample!

If the box is there and I can read the ingredients I may sample and may buy if it isn't full of additives and preservatives. Most of the things I see being given out as samples are new product lines some company is trying to get out to the public. Most of the ones I see, even if they meet my criteria are much too expensive for me to even think of buying.

I always try the samples if they are giving them away & if I like them I will buy the product.

I have seen some samples that i wouldn't try if they paid me money! They usually include some type of odd ingrediant. But the ones that look good i'm all for!
