What Kind Of A Food Shopper Are You? - Quiz

Are you a Big Box Buyer, a Convenience Consumer, or a Locavore Lover? Take our food shopping quiz and find out.


You May Get

Big Box Buyer

You’re clearly an unabashed Big Box Buyer. You have no problem driving 20 minutes away to load up your SUV with a month’s worth of groceries at your favourite big box retailer. Your pantry doors barely close because of that jumbo-size box of corn flakes and that 5-kilogram jar of Italian hazelnut spread you bought while stocking up on socks and gift wrap at your local big box chain. But despite your lack of space, you can’t resist hitting “Add to Cart” on the  12 one-litre bottles of No. 1 medium Canadian maple syrup that are selling for $179.99, shipping and handling included.  Your Costco membership card is well used, the Walmart Supercentre cashiers know you by name, and you applied for your Target REDcard even before the doors opened in your neighbourhood.

Convenience Consumer

You're clearly a Convenience Consumer. Last night, you sat down to a glass of chilled Chardonnay and a $14.99 plate of truffled mac and cheese you bought at your local upscale grocer on your way home from work. You don’t mind spending a little extra if it means cutting down on time in the kitchen.  Life is too short to slave over a stove. Still, you turn your nose up at the microwaveable chicken primavera found in the freezer section of your grocery store. When company’s coming, you do however make an effort and toss your own kale salad – the kind you find in the plastic ready-to-go salad kits that include a creamy dressing, roasted sunflower seeds, and Applewood-smoked bacon bits. 

Locavore Lover

You're clearly a Locavore Lover.  If it’s not in the cooler outside your front door, or at your favourite farmer’s market stall, you won’t put it in your mouth.  You know fiddleheads and zucchini flowers are available only for a short period of time ever year, but you’ve already bookmarked the recipes to use them in. You may not always be able to afford organic produce only, but the “Dirty Dozen” list of foods most contaminated by pesticide use is taped to your fridge. If you don’t have a green thumb, you’ve befriended coworkers who tend to their own gardens and are eager to feed your kale or zucchini addiction with their thriving crop. When company’s coming, you serve organic homemade kale chips and favourite craft beer.
