Making Choices When Sequentially Encountering Healthy and Unhealthy Options: the Role of Sensory Mode of Evaluation

Four studies demonstrate that the sequence in which healthy and unhealthy foods are encountered and the sensory mode of evaluation influence choice. When visually evaluating products, a sequence of healthy-unhealthy (vs. unhealthy-healthy) foods leads to preference for the healthy item; the effects reverse when consumers sample (i.e., taste) the products.
