Do you look at labels when you shop for groceries?

I do sometimes but not most of the time. In general, if I like a product and I want it, I'm going to get it. How 'bout you?

  • Only when it's a product I'm not familiar with or are comparing for equivalency.

  • I do when I am buying a product for the first time and then occasionally when I am looking for sodium content. I was so surprised to see the excessive amount in brown beans. Random thought there. I wish it was Friday!!

  • Usually I do but not always, and I almost always regret it when I don't. There may be fewer servings than I'd thought, or the product might be close to the expiration date, or I pick up a product by mistake that is sitting next to the one I want. My husband washed his hair with conditioner for months because I'd grabbed the conditioner instead of the shampoo. I said didn't you wonder why it wasn't making suds?

  • Yeah. I check sugar, fat, cholesteral, and sodium in most things. How much is in it, compare price to similar items in other brands. A shopping trip takes forever!

  • Not usually, I go in and buy what I want, I usually already know what I'm going after.
