We test new flavors (and types) of candy OFTEN. But just because we test something and WE like it, that doesn’t mean EVERYONE will like it (we have some fairly odd tastes at times). So we occasionally ask for people to test prototype candies for us. And it works wonderfully.
As the business grows, we’ve decided to organize our focus group testing a bit, to make things more streamlined. To that extent, we’re setting up this form so we have a standing group of people ready to test for us.
BEFORE you sign up, there’s a few things you should know…
Winthrop’s Whimsies will randomly choose a specific number of candidates for each focus test, out of the available pool of candidates. If you aren’t chosen for a specific test, do not fret, we’ll get to you eventually. If you ARE chosen for a test, we will send you a small package of candy (for free!) to test, with a URL included. After you try the sample, go to the URL, and fill out the form. Be honest, if it’s bad, we need to know. If it’s fantastic, even better, but we need HONEST answers.
Our testing is done “blind,” meaning WE don’t know beforehand who gets what sample, and we also don’t know who answers the questions on the test form. All we get is the final answers tallied.
Now the “legal bit” the lawyers make us add:
Winthrop’s Whimsies, its employees, investors, suppliers, etc hold NO responsibility for any losses you may incur as a result of taking part in a focus group sample. We guarantee any samples sent to you are edible as per the US FDA Guidelines, with no guarantee towards taste or palatability. The samples are prepared in our main facility where nuts, milk, and eggs are possibly processed. While we try to ensure no cross-contamination, we cannot guarantee an allergen-free experience. Consume at your own risk, and PLEASE let us know directly of any unusual side effects including, but not limited to: skin rashes, allergic reactions, abnormal hair loss/growth, additional limbs, or demonic/extraplanar possession, illness, or death.
With all that out of the way, here’s the form to sign up as part of our Focus Group:
Thank you for signing up, you brave soul! Good luck, and as always, #GiveJoy!
