Sometimes when I'm walking through the grocery store, I'll see small free samples. On top of the ones that vendors have set up mainly in the meat and frozen food sections, I'll occasionally come across others, such as vitamins, detergents, etc. I don't see them as much as I used to, since it seems a lot of companies expect people to order free samples online, but it can be a good way to try out a product without having to take a chance on wasting money if you don't like the product. Do you see displays like this where you shop? One of the fairly recent ones I recall is for Viactiv Calcium chews. I got several and sent a few to my mom. I thought they tasted pretty good, but my mom didn't like them at all, and since she has to take Calcium in some form, at least it saved her from buying a package and then throwing it out.
