Alabama the most honest state in tea test

Posted: Updated:

The honesty of Americans has been put to the test and Alabamians are number one. The Honest Tea company gathered data from experiments conducted in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. The study is not based on a scientific sample, but The National Honesty Index has found that overall, Americans were 92 percent honest and Alabama tied with Hawaii for most honest state.

Beverage company set up unmanned kiosks stocked with its beverages and offered them for $1 on the honor system. Then watched to see what people would do when no one was looking. 61 total locations throughout the country were tested. In Alabama and Hawaii 100% of the people who tried the beverages, did the honorable thing and left behind a dollar. Washington D.C. Was the least honest. Only 8 out of 10 paid the dollar.
