Most food items can’t be sampled before they are purchased. I think the one that really disappoints me is ice cream. It looks like a perfectly good pint of butter pecan until you take that first bite. That’s when you learn that a very bad person has allowed it to melt and then re-freeze a few times before selling it to you as if nothing happened. Instead of a deliciously smooth experience you get a sad grainy echo of what might have been. Maybe in the future there will be a little indicator strip on the side that will permanently change to red if it is ever exposed to warm temperatures for more than a few minutes.
