Study: Food in McDonald's wrapper tastes better to kids

Study: Food in McDonald's wrapper tastes better to kids - CNN.com

From article:

Anything made by McDonald's tastes better, preschoolers said in a study that powerfully demonstrates how advertising can trick the taste buds of young children.

Even carrots, milk and apple juice tasted better to the kids when they were wrapped in the familiar packaging of the Golden Arches.

The study had youngsters sample identical McDonald's foods in name-brand and unmarked wrappers. The unmarked foods always lost the taste test.

"You see a McDonald's label and kids start salivating," said Diane Levin, a childhood development specialist who campaigns against advertising to kids. She had no role in the research.

Levin said it was "the first study I know of that has shown so simply and clearly what's going on with (marketing to) young children."


Okay lets put every super healthy product in a grocery store with a Mc Donalds logo on it. Now the kids will eat it.

Have you had your habanero pepper today????
The hotter the pepper, the better the pepper!!!
