Cadbury’s snaps are small chocolates shaped a bit like Pringles. When you open up the packet you will be disappointed to find that the Snaps aren’t quite a big as a Pringle like you expected, this is because they needed to make room for all of the packaging of course! Cardboard box, silver wrapper, then a nice big bit of plastic to make sure you don’t get too many of them and leave a nice pile of rubbish behind you.
I wonder how many of these are splashing around in the ocean now?
In the fast moving and exciting world of chewing gum Trident are the new kids on the block.
To make a ‘splash’ they focused on making bigger packaging than Orbit/Wrigley’s first, then better gum second. Today’s demanding consumer won’t put up with his chewing gum sharing a package with other bits of chewing gum, no, each piece should have it’s own packet, you know they must be good if they need their own individual packet!
This delightful mess comes from three meals, McDonalds, KFC and Burger King. You could say that the stuff in the wasteful packaging is itself a waste product, but that’s just my opinion (I had to say it’s just my opinion and not fact incase Ronald gets Mclible on my ass!) .
OK so it’s not strictly overpackaging of a product, but it’s just as bad. Every month one of these drops through my door, and every month I post it back to them saying in big writing, “PLEASE STOP SENDING ME THIS JUNK, AND TAKE ME OFF YOU MAILING LIST” But still like clockwork another arrives.
