Flop or Fad? These Garbage Products Failed To Deliver On Their Hype

Smooth Or Crunchy?

The makers of this ice cream treat tricked their customers into thinking they were buying a crunchy ice cream. In reality, it’s a creamy ice cream pop that does not live up to the hype of the crunchy products. It’s called false advertising. This Reddit user was sad when they ripped open the ice cream package, only to find plastic full of empty prices. They even left a review about the product, saying, “My disappointment is immeasurable.” All she can do now is bite into the chocolate and imagine the crunch (via Health and Wellness).

The Bursting Cord

If a product advertises itself as a “no burst” cord, wouldn’t you think it wouldn’t burst? That’s the point and the reason people buy that cord. But this company falsely advertises their products, because it burst while it was still in the package. That could be considered a fire hazard (via Reddit).

The Defunct Box

When these parents bought a box of blocks, they thought they were getting nine blocks. That’s what the package makes it look like anyway. It certainly looks like nine colorful blocks are waiting inside this package. But when this Reddit user opened the package, they found eight boxes and one defunct box. Little Tikes would not be proud (via Health and Wellness).

Just A Tad Short

People use three-foot cords for a reason. Maybe they need it for their room, or they’re hosting an event and need a long cord for electronics. When this Reddit user purchased this three-foot cord, they found nothing but a tiny, short cord. They captioned the photo, “I feel like the cord is a little shy of 3 ft.” A little shy is an understatement. Either the creators of these products don’t understand math, or they falsely advertised this on purpose (via Reddit).

The Totally Legit Carnivorous Plant

This product is almost laughable. The sellers claim to have a carnivorous plant and claim to have sold many of them. It looks like a toy that you’d find on the floor of a kid’s room or even a kid’s birthday cake. Either way, anyone who buys this product will surely be left brokenhearted at their fake, non-legit carnivorous plant (via Reddit).

Reddit

Extreme Amount Of Space

This company got one thing right, and that’s the use of the word extreme. Because their product isn’t extreme, they used an extreme amount of space just to hold it. Not only did the small container have a ton of space, but the bigger container also had an abundance of space, for three times the price. It’s nearly the same amount of product (via Health and Wellness).

Reddit

Where’s My Cheese?

This Reddit user was severely let down when they opened their box of Chili Spaghetti, only to find a plastic tub of cheeseless noodles and meat. It looks nothing like the box advertises, and there’s no cheese. Let’s hope they had some cheese lying around their house because it’ll probably be pretty tasteless without it (via Reddit).

Reddit

Too Late To Change

When you look at a product that says “microwave,” wouldn’t you think you can microwave it? That’s exactly what this couple did when they bought this meal. They’d had a busy work week and wanted something quick and simple. But after they’d got home and took off the extra packaging, they were left with a disappointing surprise. The meal isn’t microwaveable as they were led to believe when they bought it for a cheap price. Now, they know why it was on sale. At least they learned never to buy that product again (via Health and Wellness).
