12+ packaging fails that are just straight up ridiculous

June 29th, 2021

There are some things in life that make you scratch your head and say “hmm…what exactly happened here?” and these packaging fails are the perfect example. When we purchase an item that needs packaging, we expect to have that packaging serve its purpose. Well, we’re not sure what happened here…but something was off.

These 13 packaging fails are so bizarrely confusing.

What the heck?

1. A bag inside a box

For someone who’s eager to eat his chocolates, this one’s definitely frustrating. After you open a box, you’ll see another pack which you have to tear open just to get to your chocolates.

2. Don’t try to justify it.

We get that small packages are easy to steal, but this? That much plastic is just unacceptable.

3. Redundant

So, this person ordered bubble wrap. Amazon was feeling extra generous so they decided to wrap his protective packaging with protective packaging.

4. Extra protection

To ensure this product’s safety, it was put inside a box. Then, a couple of airbags were placed on top of it to make sure that it wouldn’t break or get damaged along the way.

5. A new way to pack sliced bread

But what if you need more than one slice? You’d surely end up with lots of trash if you get more than one.

6. All that plastic for that tiny product

Whoever made this one clearly doesn’t care about the environment. The packaging is an extremely bad choice for a product that tiny.

7. Having a hard time peeling pineapples?

This store probably thinks that it’s giving a solution for people who have a hard time peeling pineapples. In reality, it’s just wasting plastic.

8. The insane packaging for a single pill

The way this pill is packaged is similar to the Russian doll. With that amount of packaging, someone might die from allergies because it took too long to open.

9. For two boxes of tea

This man ordered two boxes of tea. They came with over 30 feet of bubble wrap.

10. Concealer

Amazon isn’t the only one running out of boxes. Sephora is experiencing the same problem. That box for a 0.05oz concealer- what a waste!

11. The oranges

Imagine the effort put into peeling those oranges and putting them inside plastic cups. Yes, it’s quite pointless.

12. Pointless

This is probably one of the most pointless packagings you’ll ever see in your life. It’s just sad.

13. Extra packaging for the extra premium strawberries

This strawberry must be so precious. Imagine the effort put into making sure each piece looks exquisite and expensive.
