Not About Food 159

Eat samples.. buy nothing.. is that bad/rude/stealing?

GraceW | Jan 1, 201109:44 PM

Sometimes, I go to Whole Foods thinking I want a particular product and then I don't end up buying it (it's out OR more often: I realize that it is going to cost $5 for a box of cereal...) but in the process of roaming the store, I try their samples.

This kind of happens every couple of times I go there... so maybe once a week I end up making purchases, but once a week, I leave without buying what I was looking for (and driving to a more affordable location).

What do you think--especially if I do frequent there (weekly, if not bi-weekly)--is it rude to sample without making a purchase?

(I will say it is really helpful to sample because it is so expensive, so I can decide if it is worth the $7.99 for a loaf of cinnamon bread)
