CHOICE takes you through the packaging tricks of the trade that manufacturers use to, well, trick you.
Are you going crazy, or did the size of your favourite chocolate bar just shrink? Maybe it's the sheer amount of packaging driving you mad? CHOICE covers all things packaging – from supermarket brands copying the look of well-known brands to the phenomenon known as "wrap rage" – so you'll know exactly when you're being stitched up.
Yes, our packaging experts are the kind of people who study the wrappers of products on supermarket shelves. They may look a little obsessive, but that's because they take their responsibility to consumers seriously. They're also pretty great people – you could even say they're the whole package.
