Blindverkostung: Happy Foie vs. konventionelle Foie Gras

At the beginning of December, we could hardly believe our eyes. Klaus* wrote us an email after we asked him for feedback on Happy Foie. Instead of simply writing us how he liked it, he sent us the results of his blind tasting. He had professionally conducted this with 8 people and various conventional foie gras products against Happy Foie.

But read for yourself the original text of the blind tasting email:

Dear Happy Foie Team,

here is the feedback you asked me for; it is the result of an interesting blind tasting.

On 5/12/2021, my wife and I had invited six friends/girlfriends. Eight of them wanted to check your claim, namely "a product that is in no way inferior to a high-quality Bloc Foie Gras."

To this end, we had selected seven Foies Gras (including two livers in one piece) for all eight participants:

In addition to two products from your house: Happy Foie duck organic and Happy Foie duck with truffle, were: 'Le Pré aux Canard' duck liver block, 'Rougie' goose liver block, as well as 'Le Pré aux Canard' duck liver in one piece, 'Grolière' goose liver in one piece.

The foies gras were arranged on a plate decorated with various jellies and served with white bread and homemade brioches. Each piece was anonymously marked with a letter flag.

Only one question was then to be answered on a ballot paper: "Which foie gras do you like best?". At will, everyone could then rank their preferences.

The result:

Three products were clearly ahead of all others:
  1. Happy Foie Duck organic
  2. Le Pré aux Canard‘ Duck liver bloc
  3. Happy Foie Duck organic with truffle
Place 1 Place 2  Place 3

The distance from the winner to 2nd and 3rd place was reasonably clear. 2 and 3 were very close to each other, but the distance between them and all the other products was huge.

Bon appetit

Got to the winners!
