Horrible Food Packaging

I've been meaning to write about this since I first mentioned it 7 months ago in an indirectly related story - the complete obnoxiousness of food products with photographs of people's faces on it - beginning with Taster's Choice and most recently Good Friends cereal - a cereal made of twigs and bark with scary pictures like this. All I want to know is what customer are they envisioning that is going to look at this box and want to buy their cereal? The best I can imagine is the rare customer that ignores packaging and immediately looks at the label for fiber content. Absolutely ridiculous. Here they are at last for your viewing pleasure. If you have horrible examples of food packaging send them along - the winner receives a box of Good Friends cereal and a post announcing the winners in Horrible Food Packaging II.
