Shonkys 2014

Ahh spring: the flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and there’s a zesty whiff of lemon in the air. It can only mean one thing: CHOICE has been hard at work tracking down the poorest products, shoddiest services, and most ridiculous terms and conditions for our annual name-and-shame-athon, the 2014 Shonky Awards.

You’d be forgiven for thinking companies would be doing their best to do right by consumers and avoid CHOICE’s fine-tooth comb. Not so, it would seem, as this year we have a collection of doozies just begging for a giant lemon. So without any further ado, let’s get to the awards no-one wants to win…
