Painfully accurate: these people got mislead by packaging

3 minutes reading time

We don’t always notice it anymore, but all of us know the feeling when opening a bag of crisps and the inside looking like half of it has been eaten already. This is just one of many examples where the packaging looks promising but once opened, the inside isn’t at all. Even though we all know these are marketing trics, sometimes the level of deception is so real you’re not sure whether to laugh or to cry. Below you will find a small selection of such cheating packs and other shameless product designs, which have been collected on Reddit among others.

 

1. The quantity of Snickers you get when buying two seperate ones is way better than its so called ‘two-in-one’.

2. Only the product developers will know what ‘XL’ means.

3. Never trust the viewing window.

4. Clearly there wasn’t going to be a huge chocolate bar inside of here, but the amount of mini’s could’ve easily been doubled.

14. Also foodstands can’t be trusted.

Brought this so called “filled bat’but” in morocco for 1,2$ (pretty pricey over here) to find out later that I’ve been screwed from r/assholedesign
