Let's Get Mikey!

Back in the 1970's, Life Cereal introduced a commercial featuring two young boys who were contemplating trying a new cereal. When neither wanted to try it (because it might be healthy), one suggested, "Let's Get Mikey!" They decided to have the little brother try the new cereal because "he hates everything." Much to their surprise, "he liked it!"
We've started offering various samples at our Findlay Market location. It's really entertaining to watch people as they try to decide whether or not to try something that may be new to them. Some wait for the friend or spouse to try it first. Others dig right in. ("If it's free, it's for me!") Occasionally, someone will ask, "What does it taste like?" (Hmmm. I'm pretty sure that's why we're offering the sample.) Whether it's fresh salsa, watermelon, or a sliver of daikon radish, we've seen the bold tasters, the reticent tasters, the avid tasters, and the curious tasters. Next time you see us with samples, if you don't want to try it, get Mikey. You might just find out that he likes it!
