“Eww, It Has a Face!” Anthropomorphizing Food Products Deteriorates Consumption Experience
The current research demonstrates negative post-purchase consequences of anthropomorphizing food products. Drawing from mind perception theory and using both a lab and field study, we show that consumers feel as if they would hurt an anthropomorphized (vs. non-anthropomorphized) food product by eating it, which worsens consumption-related responses.
