Who hasn't popped into a Whole Foods or Costco, grabbed a few free samples... and then left?
Most of us have, judging from the commenters on a Yelp board discussing the topic (via Eater). The question was posed by poster Sierra T., who asked, "My friend will go to places strictly to get a sample and then leave. Panda express, yogurts shops, Costco, pizza places, mall food courts, anywhere! Is it wrong to go to multiple places strictly to get a sample and then leave?"
What some may call a budget buffet, others call disrespectful. "I feel it's wrong, but I do it anyway," said Anna "AnnaKwonda" K.
A few years back, this food blogger survived a week in New York City eating only food she got for free.
Let he or she among us who is sinless cast the first hors d'oeuvre.
