When a company advertises a product heavily, builds up excitement for it, and even convinces you to buy it, we often think their product is undoubtedly worth our time and money. Unfortunately, however, that’s not always the case. Many hyped products have failed to deliver despite the excitement their companies fostered.
These false promises and disappointments made their way to the shelves of our toy shops and grocery stores. At least the people of Reddit were here to call them out for a laugh or two about these massive failures and situations they’d rather not find themselves in. Check out the products that failed to deliver on their massive hype right here.
A Sad Box
When this mom purchased this coloring set for her kid, she couldn’t have been any more disappointed. Imagine buying an entire box, ready for an explosion of contents, only to find a half-empty container. Before this mom let her kid see the horror that lay inside this box, she filled it with coloring books. This company made people believe they were purchasing a huge box full of goodies, but strategically placed a large cardboard cutout inside, taking up all the space. Crayola, we’re disappointed in you (via Health and Wellness).
