We’ve all been seduced by irresistible images on packages or ideas that seem so clever at first. The element of surprise that often comes after we unwrap a product is sometimes as hilarious as it is underwhelming. These people went through the same ordeal and are not shy about sharing their disappointment with everyone on the internet.
