Fudgsicle Triple Chocolate 18 Pack Has Poor And Unhelpful Packaging

The Fudgsicle Triple Chocolate 18 pack has poor and unhelpful packaging. 

(Above–Ice cream vendor in Indonesia.)

 This item, that I bought with my hard-earned money, has three flavors.

These three flavors are—

1. Milk Chocolate

2. Dark Chocolate

3. White Chocolate

The problem is that the individual packages within the box are not labeled. You can tell, if you have enough light, which is the white chocolate. But there is no way to tell which is the milk chocolate and which is the white chocolate. 

I was asked by someone close to me to for a milk chocolate Fudgsicle , but what I gave this person was the dark chocolate flavor. I could not figure out which one was the milk chocolate. 

The Fudgsicle brand is owned by the consumer giant Unilever. You’d think they could work this out.

You can click here to see a picture of the item I am talking about. They spend plenty of money for the external packaging, but then don’t make the product easy to use once I take it home. 

I’m forwarding this blog post to the Fudgsicle/Unilever company and we will see what kind of response I get.  

I feel that a week in Venice would be a fair payment for the trouble this issues has caused in my life.

Here is the Wikipedia entry for Unilever where you can read about the company for good or ill. Wikipedia can only be trusted so far, but it;s a starting point if you would like to learn more about this big global outfit.

Here are a number of recipes for homemade ice cream if you’d rather do it yourself.  

Here is a history of ice cream with some links for further study.

  1. At least they should pack them left to right in box so the contents mirror the illustration on the front.

    I myself went for the small chocolate cone (without the dark chocolate dip or sprinkles) at the Dairy Corner in Newtown yesterday. This was preceded by the hot dog with ketchup and onions in a steamed bun. It was very hot – both the dog and the bun. A cooling off period was required.

    There’s a building in Newtown with a sign in front indicating what businesses might be inside. The top two thirds of the sign was for Hazmat. The bottom third was about the recipe for Lee’s Chicken. I’m not quite clear what the connection is and probably don’t really want to know.

  2. A trip to Venice is definitely an appropriate reimbursement for your inconvenience, pain and suffering. Since dark chocolate is somewhat healthy, and milk chocolate isn’t, I think using the argument of the ramifications of a possible mix-up would be a good bargaining chip on getting a trip to Italy . . .

  4. Newton—Newton is a gret city and I’m sure it is clean and safe in all respects.

    Peggy—Yes…For me and everyone I know in a kind of class action suit.

    Bill—I think that was left off the box.
