Yes, people have different tastes but I think people who 'know about' (1)wine, cheese or whatever it is would universally prefer a high-quality product(2) that's been made by people who know what they're doing(3), to something very cheap and mass-produced. And yes, someone who's not knowledgeable about wine may not see 'what the fuss is about' over an expensive bottle, but let's suppose he then goes on a wine-tasting course; unless there's something actually wrong with his tastebuds, he'd be then able to tell a grand-cru Burgundy from a £5 Turning Leaf merlot(4). And if the woman buying Nigella-approved cheddar were to do a blind taste test, she might well find there's another cheese that's tastier and perhaps not even any more expensive - in this case, the Nigella Lawson Seal Of Approval is like the logo on the T-shirt; it adds a purely psychological value(5) that has nothing to do with the inherent quality of the product.
Look at music and art - you don't know who to believe anymore.
Asda's accountants and BDM's may well regard Kraft as the best cheese they have.....
I'm in Istanbul, laid down by the rona, and I've just had my first Yorkie, so the day is looking upYeah sure, I mean sometimes a Yorkie bar is exactly what you want even though you know Lindt or Greene & Black's is 'technically' better chocolate. You don't have be a gourmet 24/7 just because you like nice food. And price does not necessarily imply quality, I mean those Nong Shim noodle cups are infinitely nicer than Pot Noodles, yet are invariably cheaper.
There is a trend where people, men and women, put on these acrylic nails with a chip in them, and you can tap each others phones and give each other NFTs I think.Some great crypto influencer culture to be documenting there, I'm sure. I wanted to go to Devconnect but alas plans didn't materialize.
