Let Your Tastebuds Be The Judge…


You’ve heard the phrase, “don’t judge a book by its cover.” In this episode of Singaporeans Try, we put this phrase to the ultimate test by having our motley team try out different foodstuff such as ice-creams and potato chips – BLINDFOLDED.

Sounds way too easy right? Well, the catch is they have to guess the more expensive product solely based on how they taste. No brand names, no packaging – just taste.

I was one of the taste-testers and I have to admit that even I was surprised at the results. This experiment made me realise that cheaper products doesn’t always mean you are compromising on quality. Watch the video below to see which brands came out top!

The next time you’re at the supermarket, why not try these products yourself? We always see home brand products on the shelves but most of us never bother giving them a second glance. Like I said, don’t judge a book by its cover – you might actually prefer the cheaper one.

Ultimately, your cost of living in Singapore can be managed. It all boils down to the purchasing choices you make in your daily lives. All savings, no matter big or small, still add up. So, think about that the next time you see a home brand product going for half the price of the branded one you were reaching out for!

Still not convinced? Then, gather your friends and try out the Blind Taste Test for yourselves! But before that, don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more videos every week. Then, follow us on Instagram at @thesmartlocaltv to see some exclusive behind-the-scenes clips and bloopers!
