Team Testing

As you can imagine, the Thingtesting team comes across a ton of exciting new brands. There are now more than 1,700 of them in our directory. To get to know these brands a bit better, we recently started an internal "Team Testing" tradition. Every Friday, we take turns (enthusiastically) presenting a product from our site and sharing our experience with each other over Zoom.

This past month, we've tested custom printed press-on gel manicures, ultra concentrated coffee, and at-home blood tests to better track our health.

Inspired by our investigation into the "sober curious" movement, we also tried Gnista and Bôtan, both non-alcoholic spirit brands based in Europe.

Have a suggestion for what our team should test next? Let us know here.

A new kind of happy hour!
