Misleading Product Packaging That Are Can Be Considered Cheating In SO Many Ways

Companies would do everything in their power just to make their products sell. They would go through all the crazy marketing like do a bizarre commercial, conduct a social experiment, and the most strategic act, make a misleading product packaging so deceitful it will definitely make you go “Wait..What?”, “Oh, no they did NOT!”, “Seriously?!”, and the like. But, is it really a smart move knowing their customers will be so pissed they would not dare buy again?

Scroll down to know some of the sneaky ways of these companies through their deceitful packaging.

  1. When you think the best option is to buy a legit software installer and not just illegally download it online. Installation really was easy, but deceiving you was a lot easier. *insert troll meme here*

2.  With a big company like this, wasting paper is no big deal. Does this even take half the space of the box?

The space goes up and up.

39. Couldn’t have picked a better picture to describe what it is not for.

40.  You’re paying $3 for 15 pcs of gummy bears. Worth it?

41. They are playing with our hearts.

42. But, you can actually feel that the packaging of this is halved when holding it….

 43. Why can’t the total number just be put, it’s confusing than it already is.

44. Imagine the waste this company is adding everyday. The extra packaging is so unnecessary.

63. Such tiny bottles for such not-so-tiny price tag.

64. This could have been packaged in a way it’s easier to open.

65. Why bother putting it in a bigger package when you have a smaller one that fits better? Beats me.

66. It may not be the best a man can get.

67. These sour candies aren’t long enough. Why aren’t they long enough??
