I understand why companies would want to make a product look as good as it possibly can on the packaging, but they shouldn”t make it look so good that the real thing is just a crippling disappointment. No one wants to feel lied to every time they come home from the supermarket or go through the drive-thru.
If you don”t think this is an issue, you really need to take a look at how these real foods compare to how they”re represented on their packaging. It”s really incredible (in the worst kind of way).
