Product FAIL

Shaker Pancakes. 

  Made by White Wings and Oetker, shaker pancakes are a lot like Jemima in the fact that all you need do is add water and you have breaky. And that's great except these things come in a huge PLASTIC container that is deliberately half-full. You add water and shake for disposable satisfaction. 

  Now in this age of reducing resources, this seems like one of the stupidest ideas out there. We have been scaling down all sorts of packaging, so why create something with 50X more packaging than one needs?

 It's great that the bottles are recyclable in some places, but give me a break. If a dude is too lazy to use a bowl do you honestly think he is going to remove the label, wash the container, and put it in the blue bin? If you are lucky enough to live in an area where this is recycled and put down the bong enough to wash it, plastic is still FAR more toxic and difficult to recycle than the cardboard Jemima box. And fellas, it's going to take a justifiably larger amount of your beer money to buy. 

  For arriving 40 years too late for the instant meal mom and being the ultimate in stoner-class conspicuous consumption, shaker pancakes suck for more reasons than I can print. If you buy them, you're an idiot.

  1. Personally, I don't want to eat anything that comes in a container that similar to detergent or bleach. VERY unappetizing. #marketingfail


Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think
