Even though this was a cannoli taste test, Julie made us buy one of these:
Our desserts are ready to go home:
At home, we perform the experiment. Each rater is blinded to the identity of the cannoli. The rater tastes 3 pieces (2 are the same, determined via pseudo randomization). Then the rater indicates which 2 are the same, and which piece was the best.
Rater 1: correctly identified the matching pair, preferred Mikes.
Rater 2: incorrectly identified the matching pair, and preferred the 2 that she thought matched (tie between Mike’s and Modern).
Rater 3: correctly identified the matching pair, preferred Mikes.
Mike’s wins!!!! Although, I’m not sure we have enough power to detect a statistically significant result, will probably need to collect more data 😉
