Earlier today, 29 awesome BookRenter employees and interns participated in our caffeinated cola taste test. The challenge: can you tell the difference between Coke, Pepsi, and generic cola?

Rebecca and I laid out trays on our underused beer pong table and handed out voting sheets and pens. Some complained about the warmth (the refrigerator wasn’t cold enough!) and flatness, but hey, what can you do? Others were confident that they had matched the drinks correctly, while others debated about the merits of Coke and diet.

In total, 15 people guessed all of the sodas correctly. The generic cola was the easiest to guess at 18, and the Coke and Pepsi were equally recognizable at 15 correct guesses.

And the fan favorite of the office? Coke with eight votes! Four preferred Pepsi and three generic zero-calorie cola. Many people disliked all of them.

We had lots of fun doing this taste test and can’t wait to have another one next Tuesday. Prepare your taste buds for French Fries!

Halloween is finally here. Whether you’re a fan or not it’s the season of yummy candy and cute costumes! Once again we decided to do a taste test around the office to see what candy we like.

We tested A-gummy worms, B-sour gummies, C-cola gummies, D-fruity gummies, and E-gummy bears.

Gummy Candy Voting

We also asked our Facebook fans to help us out. Our fans liked sour candy the best with gummy bears coming in a close second. So what did our office think? Sour candy by a wide margin!

Candy Winner

There you have it, the sour candy has proven to be the favorite over the classic gummy bears. Who knew? I think if chocolate was a choice it would win hands down, no?

So hopefully this motivates you to get in the Halloween spirit, if not at least to buy some yummy candy!
