Part of the J&D's team went mobile this week to test out a theory of ours - that if we gave you one turkey sandwich with Baconnaise and one with regular mayo, that people would strongly prefer the Baconnaise version. So we showed up at the University Village QFC in Seattle in full regalia (giant 7 foot tall strips of bacon costumes), and went to work.
Going in we assumed that due to the popularity of regular mayo and how long it's been around, we might be 50-50 or 60-40 if we were lucky. The actual results over a 4 hour period were:
171 people took the Baconnaise Challenge
- 14 preferred the regular mayo turkey sandwich (8%)
- 10 called it a draw (6%)
- 147 said they preferred the Baconnaise turkey sandwich (86%)
More pics can be found here. We encourage you to try this experiment in your own home, adjusting for wind resistance and altitude and possibly wearing safety goggles if you choose. We promise that your turkey sandwich will never be the same!
