I just read about this fascinating – and shocking experiment.
Researchers gave 18 people different kinds of “delicacies”:
- duck liver mousse
- pork liver pate
- two imitation pates — pureed liverwurst and Spam
- Newman’s Own dog food.
They were told that one of the things they would taste would be dog food.
Only 3 people (roughly 17%) could tell which one was the dog food.
Guess we’re not so fussy eaters at all 😉
