“If I eat a pink cake, the taste of it is pink; the light sugary perfume, the oiliness of the butter cream are the pink. Thus I eat the pink as I see the sugary.”
–(Jean-Paul Sartre, “The Hole,” in Existentialism and Human Emotions (New York: Carol Publishing Group, 1993), 89)

Hint: The solution comes via Sartre’s thoughts.
Think of it…
What would you do if you bit into an elegantly frosted, pink cake and it tasted of garlic?

Do the textures, shapes, smells, sounds, flavors, and colors harmonize in creating the emotional experience that you want?
If your product is pink, does it taste pink?
