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!

Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, or Peet’s? BookRenter Taste Test

No doubt about it, Americans love their coffee in the morning! But which do people really prefer?  Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts, or Peet’s is the real question around our office. Over 100 million people drink coffee everyday so we want to know if people would really know the difference in their coffee of choice. We decided to take it upon ourselves to do a taste test for our employees to see if there is really a difference in taste and quality.

We set up a nifty stand with 3 different coffee pots to choose from. Our employees had no idea which coffee brand they were drinking but they voted on the one they enjoyed the most.

And the winner……STARBUCKS!

Runner up was Peet’s and last but not least was Dunkin’ Donuts. All tallies were very close, a point separating each one.

Some of our staff was surprised they didn’t choose their favorite coffee which makes me think, can people really tell the difference in their coffee they drink? With all the choices in coffee creamer flavors and sweeteners I’m not sure how one could tell the difference.

So what do people really enjoy about the delicious taste of coffee? And do they really know the difference in their particular brew of choice? I guess we can ask our staff once they stop shaking from their caffeine high.
