I did 2 demos this week for a basic Guacamole recipe highlighting the Avocado. That is the product that I was trying to get the public to think about and use. WOW! What a difference in store locations, in peoples perception of Avocados was amazing. I made
a simple recipe the company suggested and printed it out for the 2nd demo because I spent most of my first demo telling people the recipe and them writing it on the back of a piece of paper they had in their purse. Different locations, different people, different
backgrounds and what a change. Some people are afraid of something they have never tried before, like Avocado, some are scared of trying to make something from scratch, don't be. Sample something you don't know about unless you are allergic. We are not here
to change your way of eating, but to give you a different taste perhaps of something you know but want to change up. I am just trying to say that we aren't there to "make" you buy anything but to at least keep in mind the product in the next time you need
something like it. I had people who said, "no, I don't like that, and in the end, they had a change maybe of trying something new, I love that. I gave that little nudge to expand their taste. Other people are totally against change and they tell me that. Parents
can be a big factor in their children's taste of things because of what they say. Here is an example. Mother and child approach demo table and mother says "Oh, Guacamole, you won't like that, it is a little spicy". So child learns not to try new things because
parent says this even though I tell parent that there is very little spice involved. Now, 2 things have happened, child will not try something new and parent will not either, so both are missing out on an experience that might change each of their tastes.
Honestly, will one 1 tsp. of something new to you really harm you in any way unless you are allergic. Expand your palate. Even just one 1 tsp. for the rest of your life? I guess my point is to expand yourself, not just food, but maybe any little something
that might take you out of your comfort zone. Maybe a little life lesson. Try it, you'll like it.
