Today in the BookRenter office we decided to do some fun taste testing. On the menu was potato chips and corn chips with some classic party favorite dips – Ranch, Onion, and Bean dip.

Ranch was by far the favorite in the office, Onion came in second, leaving Bean dip in third place. (I will say although they were not the winners both the bean dip and onion dip bowls were completely empty. Leaving me to suspect that those who voted for them went back for seconds, maybe even thirds…but really who’s counting.)

As always we asked our Facebook fans to cast their vote on which dips they love best- here are some of the responces:

Karen- Hands down….Bleu Cheese!

Chrissy – I love buffalo chicken dip!! It’s awesome!

Erica -Ranch, Queso, Spinach and Artichoke, & Guacamole always are big hits with me

Karen – cajun crab!!!

Can you say “YUM?”

In celebration of Thanksgiving we decided to do some pie taste testing. Who can resist the yummy goodness of pie.  With the endless variety of pies available especially around Thanksgiving it was hard to narrow it down to only four varieties for tasting- but we managed.

Pie Tasting, Yum!

Our offerings consisted of apple, pecan, chocolate cream, and pumpkin pie!

So what pie was the winner?

Apple Pie

Pumpkin Pie

The office thought Apple pie was the best and our Facebook fans felt that Pumpkin pie was their favorite. Once again we have disagreed with our fans on this one, but who cares. With the mass variety of pies out their were bound to have different opinions.

What’s your favorite pie?

In celebration of the recent fire drill that just interrupted everyone’s workday, we decided to have a donut tasting event.  BookRenter Briana was kind enough get some delicious donuts during her lunch break (sha wing!).

In spite of the best efforts of BookRenter Andy, we conducted the donut tasting, pitting the perennial donut powerhouse and national chain Krispy Kreme against “Rolling Pin” donuts, which I’ve never heard of but has the reputation of making some yummy donuts.

Amazingly, Rolling Pin came home with the W in a close match, winning with 32 votes to Krispy Kreme’s 30.

Written by BookRenter Briana

Our office indulged in more taste tasting today- testing McDonald’s and 7-Eleven coffee. These roasts might not be the cream of the crop but their price and convenience make them rather appealing to many people.

It was a close one on our Facebook fan page, but 7-Eleven was the eventual winner by one vote.

What did our office think?

McDonald’s had an overwhelming lead over 7-Eleven, with one lonely person who voted for convenience store coffee. Our office seems to disagree with our Facebook fans in the battle between McDonald’s and 7-Eleven.

*Whoops, we did not do a  blind taste test in the office this time. It is possible some people were influence by branding rather than taste. Or maybe they were thinking of delicious Big Macs and french fries while choosing their favorite coffee.
