Cheese Fail

Do you know why we have focus groups?  It's so that companies can get real consumer opinions about new products before releasing them to the general public.  Unfortunately, some products manage to slip through the cracks.  It never ceases to amaze me how some of them actually do.  I thought I'd spend a few days or so highlighting some of the worst product failures.  Some of them are so ridiculous, you can't help but laugh.

No doubt, Cheetos are a great success!  Kids love them and adults who aren't ashamed to like their fingers in public like them, too.  Even spicy Cheetos are a big hit.  There are also Cheetos puffs, Cheetos asteroids, and . . . Cheetos lip balm?!

If only this were a joke!  Believe it or not, Cheetos made a lip-smacking-good lip balm.  I don't know about you, but for one, orange lips aren't attractive.  And two, who in the world would want to kiss someone with pasty, Cheeto-flavored lips?  Not me.  

How did this one slip through the cracks?

that's a "what were they thinking?!" moment all right.

That's nasty!! I remember when the Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker came out, but that is more appropriate for lip balm flavors.

I'm not even going to ask where you found that. I was already weirded out by the Dr. Pepper Chapstick, now this? I hope it gets discontinued!

Cole Garrett said...

@ Kickboxing Rest assured, it was discontinued very shortly after it hit the shelves

O.o Cheetos chapstick? I've seen a lot of types of chapstick that were food flavored- I even found a Ben & Jerry's line of chapstick (I don't remember where, though)....but cheetos? Ewwwww
