NEVER JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER

Good marketing can sell ordinary products. Look at this packaging.



I bought it at a super market in Chiba,japan. Sounded good... travel sweets. and look at that photo!I couldn't wait to open them back home. And these were such a let down. They contained ordinary sugar candies.. not unlike your Parle Poppins!!! Dart...
And what is more, a few days back, I found the same thing at a local bakery. So much for an exotic travel shopping...
Marketing is the art of selling things no one would buy otherwise.

Marketing is what we swallow thinking of a reason not to dispense with it.
Commercial rubbish.
