Doing my part for market research

A couple weeks ago I took a survey for a market research company and qualified for a home test of the product being studied.

On Friday, this box arrived via FedEx at my office, and yes it was as big as it looks! After keeping it under my desk all day, I had to carry it a few blocks to the bus tunnel, and then ride with it all the way home on a crowded bus. Clearly I was not thinking things through when I decided to have it shipped to work rather than our apartment:

Once I opened the monstrous box, I found that in addition to 6 ice packs and 8 inches of bubble wrap, there were only these two little packages inside - products 3R7 and 4M7:

Fortunately both products were delicious, and I had no trouble eating several samples - all in the name of research of course!
