A creative approach might help your product taste better

As consumers, we’re besieged with puffery.

Brands shout at us, boasting they have New York’s No. 1 pizza, the world’s best coffee, America’s favorite car, or the best blue jeans in the universe.

But these hollow claims fall flat with our exceptionally well-developed BS detectors.

In sharp contrast, one creative restaurateur took the opposite approach.
