History about a marketing content study
Sometime in the 1970s, Howard Moskowitz was commissioned to experiment and find THE perfect level of sweetness for Diet Pepsi. As per the TED talk given by Malcolm Gladwell, after much thinking, the answer to the lack of perfect Pepsi sweetness hit Moskowitz in the face like a ton of bricks one day over lunch.
The answer was that there was no one perfect level. So Fast forwarding to Moskowitz’s work with Prego. He takes his revelation and applies it to Prego, which had only one flavor of spaghetti sauce at the time. He then developed 45 different types of spaghetti sauce for testing. Gladwell argues that Moskowitz,“varied each one by every way you could possibly vary tomato sauce, from level of sweetness, garlic, etc.” and then he discovered Americans fell into three groups:
Those who like plain spaghetti sauce
Those who like chunky spaghetti sauce
Those who like spicy spaghetti sauce
Until this research, no one had even thought of developing a chunky variety of spaghetti sauce, yet one-third of Americans highly preferred it. The result was $600 million dollars in 10 years from the chunky sauce line alone. So Girlfridayz say not so bad for his favourite spaghetti bowl hey.
