Is It Taste Or Looks? What Actually Attracts You To Food?

November 27, 2015 2 min read

Food porn is all over social media. It is impossible to escape. If you find yourself drooling over images of decadent desserts and rich comfort foods, you aren't alone. Not that things are any simpler in 'real life.' Have you ever been sitting in a restaurant and struck by what the table beside you is eating? You may be left wondering if it is the anticipated taste of the food you are about to eat or the presentation that a makes you salivate. "We do eat with our eyes and first impressions (of a food) are everlasting," says celebrity chef, Ranveer Brar. With our advanced technologies and communications, people are becoming far more adventurous and trying foods from all over the world, making visual appeal more important than ever. But, when it comes to choosing between taste and attractiveness, "taste has always been and will always be king," says Brar. "I strongly believe that presentation leaves an impression, but what gives the impact is taste. Taste is the factor that gives us food memories," he explains. images (2) [bctt tweet="Is It Taste Or Looks? What Actually Attracts You To Food?"] As for whether or not the social media food porn trend will take over the culinary real world, he says, "I think it's a very short phase that we shall soon overcome to realize that the foundation of cuisine is the taste and flavour." What do you think? When you think of your favourite foods, are they lovely to look at or some sort of a crazy, mess of a thing that has to be tasted to be believed? We'll guess that more often than not, they will fall into the latter category. Are you attracted by sight or taste?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
