The Taste Test Thread

ski_gpsy | May 9, 2011 06:29 PM

I love doing taste tests (science minor in college). Recently I mentioned that I had bought 5 different brands of salad dressing in order to perform a taste test. Another ChowHound suggested we create a new thread to post the results. So here we are....

I find the easiest taste tests happen whenever I'm getting ready to use up the last of one brand, and take a moment to open a box/bottle/package of the new brand and do a quick taste comparison. Unfortunately I never wrote anything down, just made a note to buy the preferred brand. From now on I will make quick notes for The Taste Test Thread!

If you have a brand of something that you've come to prefer above others, please share it here. Details like what you prefer it to, or descriptive flavor profiles would be a bonus, but basically if you have a brand of something you think is superior, please share.

Below are the results of the recent Sesame Ginger salad dressing taste test, followed by a comparison between Corned Beef and Cabbage cooked in a slow cooker vs. a pressure cooker.

Do you have any recommendations to share?
