Ever wondered why fruits and vegetables are always placed at the front in supermarkets? A study showed that people would still buy junk food after filling their trolleys up with fruits and veggies (probably because they feel less guilty), but are not as tempted to buy fruits and veggies if they already filled their trolleys with junk food.
It’s also supermarket psychology—bright colours are used to create a good, calming environment for shoppers, making us spend more than we really want to.
Interestingly, “fruit mood” is also a thing, and different fruits actually symbolise different things. Scroll through the gallery to find out the meanings of different fruits.
