Taste testing games are fun and a great way to get even the pickiest of kids (AND adults) to warm up to new foods!
Here’s how to have a blind taste test game with your children:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Ask the kids to pick a partner and give one of them blindfold 2. Give each child a plate with two different colored bell peppers, carrots, raisins, apples, and grapes⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. Whoever was going first put on the blindfold and their partner will be writing down the scores on the worksheet ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. The non-blindfolded partner gives the other the first food to try and ask: “Tell me if this bell pepper is red or green.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The non blindfolded partner will give them a point if they guessed correctly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lesson: Don’t judge food by how it looks, but instead by how it tastes!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But how does this have anything to do with these cups?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Well, our team had a fun taste test game at our lab the other day. Instead of food, we did a comparison between sugar, another sugar substitute in the market and SugarLike monk fruit sweetener. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The results: 4/5 members could not taste the difference between sugar and SugarLike, even better, they preferred SugarLike monk fruit sweetener over sugar! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I know we said don’t judge food by how it looks but in this case, you DO want to look for the quality difference. Unlike other sugar substitutes, SugarLike is easily dissolved in liquid; it has a clear, transparent appearance just like sugar. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Looks like sugar, tastes like sugar and use like sugar!
