The Taste Test of Truth
The man you see above is no ordinary sugar eater. In fact, he’s barely a sugar eater at all. He prefers salty to sweet, and believes that Kits Kats are a perfectly acceptable, masculine chocolate bar. When presented with a dessert menu, he usually flicks it away, and has even been known to hide sugar items from me in the past.
However, this sugar hater was the only person around yesterday willing to help me taste test the new Cadbury Crème Bar, which I suspected was little more than Cadbury’s attempt to make us eat Cadbury Eggs all year round.
I bandaged the subject’s eyes and told him his assignment was to distinguish between the Cadbury Egg and the Cadbury Crème Bar.
I served the blindfolded subject the two chocolate samples. Although he first declared that they tasted quite similar, he eventually concluded that the second piece had a hint of caramel.
That was totally wrong, of course, since the samples were both from the same source: the Cadbury Crème Bar. Because as any sugar lover knows, Cadbury only sells its eggs during Easter.
So now, dear reader, perhaps the true purpose of the experiment becomes clear to you: I was not testing the difference between the Cadbury Egg and the Cadbury Crème Bar, but rather whether sugar haters can be trusted.
And clearly, they cannot.
