Broken: Quantity label


This package is labeled with the quantity - "One Yummy Pound."

"One Yummy Pound" of what?!?


One yummy pound of whatever your hand is covering up...

Someone's photography/cropping skills/viewfinder is broken.

The packaging is truly broken. It's true that this picture is inconclusive, but check out

Four different bags, none of which has whatever this one has in it, and NONE of them say what's in them.

AND two of the four bags clearly do NOT contain nuts.

Posted by: stoo at April 6, 2007 07:41 AM

Hence the subtitle: "We're more than just nuts"

Posted by: Haggai at April 6, 2007 08:43 AM

Maybe that's the price. :D

I don't particularly consider British currency "yummy", but whatever.

Given that it's "", I'd hazard that maybe you're supposed to order online? And the online store would tell you. Which doesn't explain why it's here in a store without clear labeling.

It's been a while since I ordered from NutsOnline, but IIRC, there's a label on the back or bottom of the package. Anyway, you ordered them so you should know what's inside!

If using the same bag for every product means that I get cheaper sesame sticks, I'm all for it.

Fuzzy, if you look closer at the picture, it's in an office, not a store. Someone probably just got this package delivered. Manda's right, it's gotta be cheaper for them to just make one package and put different labels on them. Whatever that stuff is, it looks GROSS... like little balls of brats (the meat, not the kids). Yuck!

It looks like a different kind of "nuts" to me. OUCH, those poor bulls!

What Fuzzy said - not broken, just taken out of context.

It's broken to expect an online vendor to print a different bag for each (possibly short-lived) product, and deal with overstock/understock/using the right bags, just to make it harder for someone on the interweb to complain about the bag not having a prominent top-center contents label.

If whoever delivered the bag to the office removed the label noting the contents, that's hardly the packaging's fault, or that of nutsonline.

Ambrocked: I'm guessing those are just mottled candy coatings, and it's some sort of dessert.

In fact, it appears they're probably Malted Milk Balls of some sort, or perhaps some buttercrunch.

(I would link, but cannot. Both products are on the website for the company.)

Wait. How can an Internet company be "A Family Tradition Since 1929?"

Posted by: The Pondermatic at April 6, 2007 05:41 PM

Pondermatic- Because they weren't always an internet company.

Posted by: yuravian at April 6, 2007 09:27 PM

C'mon you guys. They're obviously MEATBALLS!

Posted by: ryanj at April 6, 2007 09:39 PM

Well what could be broken is what is cut off on the OP picture but in the link.....

A Family Tradition Since 1929? hmm did they time travel back then to order nuts online? (I know I know, they probaly changed the company name to try to cash in on the online bubble, but still those should not be connected)

Posted by: Infinity306 at April 8, 2007 06:57 PM

well you can clearly see what is in the packet so in a way its not broken but you'd expect some sort of description on what the product is or the name of the food item

there more than nuts alright... there crazy

This is the greatest thing ever!

The commpany could put *anything* in there. When their stock of one food is running low, they can put a pound of something else in!

It's like opening a Cracker Jack box (except the sides are transparent): You could get a pound of something different every time.

I seem to recall "Nuts Online" being the subject of a previous 'This is Broken'.

Here it is:
