Ok, so the demo was for "coconut milk beverage". Come on give me a chance to explain before you walk away as many did. It really wasn't that bad. "A shelf stable product that must be refrigerated after opening and used within 7-10 days. It is totally organic,
no soy, dairy or gluten. It is wonderful on cereal in the morning or just a glassful. 50% of your B12 for the day in just 1 serving, which is in only 1 cup. There are many satisfying flavors which are designed with a pre- and probiotics to enhance your sense
of well-being. " Now its your turn, you must ingest the amount of product I have put into a 3 oz. cup, wait, only about 1/2 of that. Then you, go ahead, do the "gag", the "oh", or the "well, not bad" comment or whatever. I'm just standing here with a smile
on my face and saying, "thanks for sampling". Or,,,be the lady that stood there at my table for almost 5 minutes, blocking the aisle because she was "cleaning out her coupon booklet". She actually stood there and went through a coupon holder, cleaning out,
all her "bad" coupons. And telling me all about it. She told me that is was better for her to do it there rather than at the register and find out that they weren't any good. She continued to talk as she sorted through and I found out that her friend that
took her to the store works at a natural food store and takes something called "kefir", not sure on the spelling and that the friend is looking for something that is "digestible", she has "issues". Then there was the lady that asked me about every question
about the product, from where the coconuts were grown, to how long I had chilled the product. Then of course the children that run up, try to grab and go. I must stop them. I tell the little,,um,,,munchkins that I can't give them a sample without an adult
present, oh wait they say, my mother, uncle, aunt, grammy is in the store and it is all right. Well, sorry, but your mother, uncle, aunt, grammy has to tell me to my face that is is all right, we wouldn't want you to have a horrible reaction to anything that
you might eat. Well, how do I end this tale,,I guess to say this, remember, we aren't twisting your arm to get you to try something, it is just an opportunity to maybe something different than the brand you normally try. Or, just look at that person and say,,,hmmm,,,,is
that the "Demo Diva" that I have heard about??
