Does organic taste better?

Hammy the Hamster Goes Organic

Posted on: Mar 3

Does organic food really taste better?

At CooksDen, we decided to apply the scientific method to that important question. We brought in an unbiased test subject -- one who has superior taste buds, is unaffected by marketing hype, and is unafraid to express her opinions publicly.

Meet Hammy the Hamster. Hammy was kind enough to participate in hours of rigorous testing in order to get to the bottom of this critical issue. Read on for the results -- they just may surprise you.

First off, a bit about our technique is in order. Hammy was asked to repeatedly choose between an organic food item and a conventional item of the same type. Click on this video to see documentation of several test trials.


When all was said and done, Hammy chose organic. In over sixty percent of the trials that resulted in a clear selection, Hammy opted for the organic item. Hammy was 'indifferent' frequently, choosing to groom herself, rest or run away entirely.
