Beware Sucker

Studies by the University of Illinois show the name of dessert influences the sale of a product. A desert doesn’t need to taste better than another desert. The name alone will sell a desert. Example: regular Chocolate Cake named Double Chocolate or Black Forest will suggest that it is better. Studies also show when the word healthy is applied to a food, people assume they are in fact good for you. Example: enjoy the taste of healthy cheese sun cakes. Beware that the title of a food can sucker you into buying it. You may think having many types of foods on your plate will make you feel like you’ve eaten healthy and you will feel satisfied. The fact is the University of Pennsylvania found that with fewer items you realize what you’ve eaten, which is one solution on slimming down. Don’t be a sucker at salad bars.
