Sample Taste Makes Sale At GNC

Last time I went to GNC for my vitamin supplement, there was a dish of what looked like wrapped candy. It was Garden Greens AcaiBlast, a soft chew that tastes like a grape Starburst. Acai is a fruit from the Amazon Rainforest. These grape chews are rich in two of nature's most potent antioxidants that are supposed to be good for us. There are 300 mg of super concentrated Acai fruit per soft chew. The salesman told me it is good for the heart. I don't know about that, but it tasted good so I bought a bag.

Have you ever tried these? What thing did a salesman get you to buy that you had no intention of buying when you entered the store?

I've wondered about all the hype about the Acai berry. I'll look at these twice the next time I see them.

Great question. On Saturday, the sample lady talked me into buying hummus with pine nuts. It was wonderful, if expensive. Won't buy it again, most likely, though, since it's not in the budget. Wouldn't mind finding a recipe, though.
