There are some stores where it’s just wise to hand out samples. When we were in Vancouver a few months ago, we stopped at a store that sells dried fruit and nuts. We went specifically for their vegetable chips (which I have tried to replicate, unsuccessfully), which are amazing. The first time we tried them was actually when we were leaving Vancouver, snacking on them on the car-ride to Calgary, wishing that we had discovered their glory earlier when we could still buy them whenever we wanted. Regardless, as we browsed around the store, one of the guys that worked there was handing out samples of all sorts of flavoured nuts. We tasted the garlic roasted almonds and couldn’t resist. We left with a bag that we have since treasured as it slowly dwindles down to nothing.
