Headline Of The Week:

Have you ever wondered why grocery stores sell flowers and why they are in the front of the store when you first walk in?  As with all things in the grocery store, there is science behind that!  Here are the main reasons why:

  • Appealing to the senses and getting the nose and saliva glands going makes people less disciplined shoppers.
  • Flowers signal shoppers that the store has fresh, natural, quality, and good food.
  • If you feel good and happy, you will spend more money.
  • Flowers have a 47% profit margin on average.

Organic vs. Non-Organic Taste Test Challenge:

In episode 140 with discussed the Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen.  In today’s show, we taste some of the items on the Dirty Dozen to determine if the organic version tastes better than the non-organic one.  And is it enough to get us to spend more money to buy it if it does?  We test the following 7 items and discuss each.  Tune in to the show to hear the results!
