Do you go for the "new and improved"?

I work with a woman who cannot resist buying any item that has new and/or improved on the label. She thinks it's her duty to try and see if she likes the new things, or to find out if things she's tried before are indeed, actually improved. Do you like trying new items you see, say in a grocery store? Or will you give things another chance if they say they have "improved"?

I rarely try anything that's "improved." I buy something because I like it. If they change it, then they've changed something I like probably. No way! I like diet pepsi, I won't drink all the other variations out there of it. My kid buys them sometimes. Yes, the strawberry cream isn't bad, but it isn't what I like so I go back to my stuff.

It kills me when a company goes and messes with somehthing that I like. it's the whole, if it ain't broke don't fix it, way of thinking. 9 times out of 10, it's usually not an improvement, they ruin it.

Once in a while I will try something new, but more often than not, I stick with tried and true. Most of my introduction to different products is through other people, and if I like it, I may try it if I think it is better than the one I normally use. Another way I will buy something different is if it on sale and cheaper than my normal product.

Yea, i'm not too brave when it comes to trying new things. That's why working with this woman is great. She's my guinea pig trying all this stuff. It can be quite a laugh watching her try the new stuff.
