5C How Color Affects Food Choices: the Impact of Image Color on Consumer Preference of Vice Versus Virtue Foods

In five studies, we illuminate that how the color of food images shifts people’s food choices and demonstrate that the black-and-white thinking underlies the effect of the color (colorful vs. black-and-white) on the food choice between vices and virtues. We also rule out construal levels as an alternative explanation.
