I was in a rush and I needed to pick up a quick snack that I could eat during class. I chose these Nature Valley bars which said they had ten bars inside. What I failed to notice is the tiny print at the bottom where it says 5 x 2, i.e., 5 packets with two bars.

Lo and behold when I open a pack during a break, I find two bars inside. I didn't want to eat two bars, just one. You can't even just leave the other fucking bar inside because they create so MANY crumbs. How the fuck are you supposed to seal it???

Stupid-ass deceptive printing got the better of me. It's not the end of the world, just mildly infuriating.

... I am 100% certain that if they switched to being individually wrapped tomorrow, a complaint about excessive packaging would be one of the top posts here.

You're undeniably right. The best situation would be to not have any wrapping at all... but with the crumb situation, that'd be another top post here :/

I'm all for reduxcing packaging but...ewww I'm not eating these from an unsealed box. Bugs love the crumbs....I can imagine they'd love the full bars, too. Not to mention rodents.

The box would have to be fully resealable, too, or they'd be gross so they'd need to replace the cardboard with plastic

so like just put them in resealable plastic bags, that's a better use of the plastic than 5 small packages and means you don't need the cardboard either!

To make them not turn to dust in transit, they'd need to be in a hard shell sleeve wrapped in plastic like Oreos...and they'd still likely get crushed a bit.

I'm not a packaging engineer but that seems like more plastic with little added benefit

They sell it without individual wrappers, it's just müsli.
