Have you ever looked at something and wondered “couldn’t the maker have come up with a better name for it?” If not, you’re just about to. In this post, we bring to you some of the worst product names ever. These names are so ill-considered, it’s embarrassing to even say them out loud.
Don’t believe us? Well, have a look for yourself.
#1 - Crea-Mass
Crea-Mass is a brand of creatine (a bodybuilding supplement) that assists you in gaining mass and/or muscle. It’s a great marketing strategy to name a product exactly as to what the consumer will be getting out of it. But do you know what’s even better? Reading the product name out loud before it is plastered in bold all over the bottle! With a name like Crea-Mass, one simply has to wonder–why? If you notice anyone at your gym using this product, maybe maintain a fair distance as they’re doing the squats!
#2 - The Jew’s Ear Juice
Ear Juice, like really? Who walks into a store and says “Hmmm, I’ll have a carton of Jew’s Ear Juice please!” This juice is a Chinese beverage and one of its main ingredients is a type of fungus that is commonly known as Jew’s Ear. At least we now know that juice isn’t literally what it means. In 2010, the Israeli Consul General in Shanghai praised the name of the beverage and said that the product reflected the Chinese perception of Jews–successful and hardworking. However, the product’s spokesperson clarified that it’s really about the fungus. The company later changed the product’s name to Black Fungus Juice, but in all honesty, we’re not sure if its new name sounds any better.
#3 - Wack Off
Worry not, it’s just an insect repellent with big claims. The product seems heavy-duty and is mostly used by the armed forces. It has advertised itself as a repellent with max strength DEET, a common ingredient in most repellents. However, upon closer inspection, the product comes with a DEET concentration of 346g per kg, which makes it one hell of a repellant. But that still does not answer the question we’re all desperately waiting for an answer to–why the name “Wack Off?” And if you can get over the fact that this name sounds absolutely ridiculous, it’s even worse when printed in bold all over the bottle.
So what do you think?
This list is hilarious, and it gets even funnier. What are some of the weirdly named products you have come across? Let us know.
