Who doesn't like free food samples. More and more food store chains are offering free samples to customers while they are shopping. As more chains provide free samples others follow suit to keep up with the competition. I know I love going to Costco and trying all their free food offerings....especially on Fridays and weekends when the free samples are particularly abundant.
This map shows the food chains that offer free samples on an ongoing basis. If you know of any food chains that you think should be added to this map please send us your free food suggestion and we will research it to be sure that the suggested chain offers free food samples on an on going basis and add it to our map. Happy sampling!
