Effects of Awe on Consumer Healthy Food Choices

This research investigates when, how, and why consumers’ feelings of awe impact their food preferences. Findings in three empirical studies indicate that awe enhances preferences for healthy products versus unhealthy counterparts. This effect is mediated by the analytical processing associated with awe and moderated by consumers’ chronic information processing style.
