I love to buy multiple versions of one thing and compare them. In the past, I went on a 3 day cupcake crawl around Chicago--to find the best cupcake (Molly's was the best!); compared brands of oatmeal; compared caramel corn at multiple establishments; compared chocolate chips (Sunspire grain-sweetend CChips are amazing); compared yogurts (FAGE went in as #1, and after the tests, stayed #1); compared Chocolate Chip Cookie recipes (NY Times all the way) and brownie recipes (Outrageous Brownies or Baker's Chocolate Brownies); etc.
I am curious: do you also compare items? What have you compared/tested?... And what brand or recipe or establishment did you determine was best?
