It’S Not As Bad As I Thought It Would Be: Health Halos Versus Expectation Disconfirmation Effects on Affective and Cognitive Evaluations of Food Products

Four studies explore the role of expectation and experience in evaluations of food with a biasing label. Consumers expect vegan (vs. unlabeled) food to taste worse and be healthier. However, actual tasting results in higher perceived tastiness (via expectation disconfirmation) and healthiness (via health halo) resulting in higher purchase likelihood.
