In marketing, a blind taste test is often used as a tool for companies to compare their brand to another brand. For example, the Pepsi Challenge is a famous taste test that has been run by Pepsi since 1975, as a method to show their superiority to Coca-Cola. Additionally, taste tests are sometimes used as a tool by companies to develop their brand or new products.
Types of blind taste tests
There are two types of blind taste tests:
- In a single blind test, experimenters know information about the participants, but the participants know nothing about the experimenters or the product they are testing. The aforementioned Pepsi Challenge is an example of a single blind test.
- In a double blind taste test, the experimenters know nothing about the participants, and the participants know nothing about the experimenters or the product they are testing.
