Consumer Testing – by Hugh W. Roberts
“So which one do you think tasted best? Snack 8816CAO or snack 10345HBX?”
“The second one.”
“Fantastic. That’s our own brand. It’s thirty-five percent cheaper than the market leader, which you also tried. Can I tempt you to a few packets?”
“Yes, but what’s the flavour?”
“Homolastic. It’s a new flavour we found on a planet called Earth. They know it as plastic. When mixed with Homo sapiens, which are full of plastics, you get the perfect combination of flavours. There are just under 8 billion of them, so we’ll never run out during our lifetime.”
