I never do it with food, but I'd be lying if I said I'd never done it with Dr. Pepper. I've only done it a handful of times though.

i taste grapes before i buy them to make sure that they're sweet. 95% of the time, the bag i take a grape from is the bag i end up buying, but if it tastes sour, i might get another grape. got played last week tho because i got a grape and it was super sweet and when i got home and cut off a little bunch to eat, it was a mix of sweet, bland and sour and i was mad

My mom used to sample grapes. I kinda forgot about it but last year I really wanted some and I thought they were too early in the season to be good so I tried one and it was HORRIBLE so hard pass.
