Man Caught On Camera Sampling The Soup At Grocery Store

Consider it a PSA of sorts. A shopper at a grocery store was shocked to catch a man sampling some soup in a way that has people talking and the video going viral.

In the video, the man is seen sampling soup straight from the serving ladle at an unnamed grocery store. The shocking video was first shared on Reddit, with the caption “Something to think about the next time you eat at the salad bar.”

Needless to say, the video has left people disgusted and asking perfectly valid questions such as “Who does that”?

Others have re-shared the video captioning it “Fair warning: this is the scariest horror film since the Exorcist – turn back now.”

Some viewers have tried to identify the location, with one person believing it to be a store in the Chicago area. One commenter wrote, “Mine …I love the soup bar there I’m sooooo grossed out.”

The user who uploaded the footage to Reddit said that the video is actually of the man’s second soup tasting! The redditor did say that after filming the man sampling the soups, he reported the man to security. “It was his second soup. The first one made me stop and see if he would do it again. Then I went to security.”

However, several viewers were unfazed by the video, pointing out it actually happens more often then one would think. “We tell new hires to never eat anything from the hot bar, olive bar, or soup station because this is incredibly common,” commented user MonFeesh, who works in a grocery store. “The amount of people who think nothing of plunging their hands into a buffet and rationalizing it as ‘sampling’ is astounding.”

Some viewers spoke for all of us, writing: “I’m never eating at a hot bar or buffet again.”
