Can Taste Predict Product Evaluation?: the Role of Variety-Seeking on Innovative Products.

This research investigates the impact of taste sensation on innovative product evaluations. Specifically, this research found spicy taste recall having a positive influence on product evaluation and bitter taste recall having the opposite effect. This effect is mediated by variety-seeking intention, moderated by innovation types: radical innovation vs. incremental innovation.
