Pralines from a smaller gift box taste better

Dorn, Michael Hans; Messner, Claude (24 October 2014). Pralines from a smaller gift box taste better. In: Association for Consumer Research North American Conference 2014. Baltimore, MD. 23.-26.10. 2014.

This study shows that taste ratings of repeatedly chosen pralines decrease more when the gift box is large compared to small. Within their first choices consumers select the most preferred praline less often from the large assortment. These results are discussed in the light of variety seeking and dysfunctional choice.
