    Just remember to read the labels on organic package foods, if something is in a bag or a box it has some preservatives in it. Also the type of sweetner is important too! SMH

    Any more everything I buy is PRICE doesn't seem to matter what it is. Its a sad state of affairs.

    An obsessive label reader. Go to different stores for particular items.

    all i care about is taste, i won't waste my time by putting something in my mouth that taste like crap.. the point is to enjoy it..

    Especially with produce, meat and fish I spend a great deal of time paying attention to smell,color, firmness, heritage, freshness and cleanliness of the store and their workers.

    I try to be a cheap buyer, but through the years have noticed the difference in taste when it comes to saving a few pennies. Actually, thats what I realized with almost everything! You get what you pay for

    I'd like to go for stuff that gives me least fattening issues while I can enjoy the taste and be healthy ^.^

    Another thing I try to be aware of is the packaging of a product. There are some foods that I just don't buy because of all the excessive packaging. Can in box in plastic wrap= overkill.

    I usually shop according to a menu...so I try to find the exact ingredients that are the overall best value.

    I actually don't care about taste as much as price and health. I avoid sugars more than avoiding fat.
  • Chef Fef 2007/04/08 08:58:13

    I know that I don't represent a lot of people, but taste doesn't matter for me too much. Maybe because I don't have a good sense of smell and don't care about taste as strongly as others. Maybe because I woof my food down so quickly I forget to taste it. I often care more about texture than flavor. And, yes, for me price matters more. I look for the most appetizing, low-priced menu items when I eat out regardless if I pay or not. I won't eat awful tasting food, so maybe price/taste tie.

    Gotta go with the big picture. Micro and macro nutrients are key as well.

    What are micro and macro nutrients? ... It's been a while since I was in a nutrition class.

    Stuff made up by people paid to do far less work than we do, that's what they are.
