The other day I bought a package of Klondike bars, which have always been a square bar full of ice cream for as long as I can remember. But when I opened the package, there was a big hole in the middle so I was really only getting about 70% of my expected ice cream and I was quite upset. I then noticed the package called it a Klondike “donut” (Boston creme was the flavor) so I guess it’s on my for not reading the description carefully.
Which brings me to this article from Humans of Tumblr that exposes some ludicrous packaging ideas. #3 reminds me of packages I’ve received from Amazon (you’d think the #1 shipper in the world could fit things into boxes more efficiently…) and #2 just made me cry for the people that can’t even cut an avocado in half. I would like to buy the Tic-Tacs, though. I think that one is clever.
#1 Why are we packaging bananas, folks?
#2 Same with avocados.
We are perfectly capable of halving our own avocados.
#3 This ginormous box shipped a ruler.
Maybe the person in charge of shipping should have measured it first.
#4 Again, with the produce.
Just let everyone pick their own. They could even put them in bags they bring from their homes. It will all be okay.
#5 This gas can of tea makes me think I could probably brew my own using a teeny biodegradable tea bag and some hot water.
#6 On the other hand, no one needs tea bags individually wrapped in plastic.
#7 Okay, this is too much packaging for some crackers and bologna.
#8 This is a hell of a lot of packaging for ONE PILL.
#9 All this packaging for a light bulb?
#10 Not impressed.
#11 Cheese wrapped in plastic wrapped in plastic.
#12 Because chips must lie in a tray inside a tube.
#13 That time you only needed one egg.
#14 Oftentimes, choice cuts of meat are available for purchase at the butcher case where it will be wrapped in paper and a piece of tape or string.
#15 Tic-tac boxes of boxes of Tic-tacs.
#16 Why does whatever this is get its own pallet?
#17 This over-packaging makes me crabby.
