Food companies and the lies they show us!

I want to bitch about the ads I see on tv.

All the food ads, that show us all these wonderful dishes and burgers and melt in your mouth chocolates.

They woo us, they seduce us, they tempt us with goodies that make our mouth tingle, and make us head for the nearest store to buy it. We hand over our hard earned money, we rip open the packaging and when we get to the food we see.... it's not what was advertised!

That's the problem with ads. They make it all up. They don't really cook food for the ad. They don't really have steam rising from the hot chook, or melted chocolate oozing from the pudding.


It's all fake or computer enhanced!

What a load of bullshit!

I am so fucking sick and tired of seeing something good on tv, or in magazines, only to buy it and find out it ain't what I saw at all.

I've heard about people who have sued companies for this very thing. They received what they thought would look and be exactly like in the ads, but when they don't get it, they then sue the store and company for false advertising.

You'd think that the companies would've learned by now, but apparently false advertising gets them more money than they don't know what to do with. They don't care if you're disappointed. They don't care if you never buy it again. Because there will always be someone else to buy it in your place.

There are particular ads on tv that show meals in their plastic trays, heating in the micro. However, when the person is eating said meal, the rice is heaped on the bottom and the meat and veg are heaped on top. And it looks so good!

Sorry, but the food NEVER looks that way. There is no way in hell that food clumped together on a plastic tray ends up looking like that on a plate. And if you've had those meals, you know what I mean.

And since when do people bother trying to scoop the food off the tray onto a plate so that it's artfully arranged?

Simple answer is .... you can't!

Fuck you food companies.

Lite and Easy, McCains, and every other fucking company that does it!!!!! And it's most of you .... you know who you are!

A starving Jewels xxoo


  1. Gosh, I know what you mean! lol Being a graphic designer and dealing with ads and publicity, I'm over saturated about all the bullshit we have to tweak in Photoshop just to make the companies sell more and more and more -- and they sell their shit at expensive prices! Absolutely disgusting. I don't know if it's just because it's good "psychology-advertising" or people are really THAT stupid. And that thought doesn't give me much hope... lol I mean, shit in the flusher or shit wrapped in pink plastic bag is still shit.

  2. LMAO, yes Cyn, shit is still shit!
