C2CAM2006 doesn't exist, he is a figment of your imagination.  Now let me ask you, do you know who I am? I'll tell you who I am. My name is Frank Garrett and I work for Duncan Construction and I am the one that is going to tell you that my pen is bigger than yours because I buy my pens from Pen Island.

The MW is a bit quirky, but I like it otherwise.

Despite being a significantly inferior product to Hellman's mayo, I've always been a fan of Miracle Whip's branding.

It can be read both the way shown and "upside-down" so it kind of makes sense. I know some stores stock it with the lid on the shelf and others have it with the lid up. Kraft must have noticed this and made a logo to match.

can i have this renamed to supermarket package changes?

i plan on using this thread to post any package changes i see in the supermarket. instead of creating a half of dozen package change threads.

some news ones i found:
Pop Weaver (new one on the bottom, old on the top)
Posted Image

Downgrade. Looks too much like a generic product.

Old El Paso
Old
Posted Image

New
Posted Image

slight tweak. Darkened the maroon and added a gradient on the tiles. eliminated the gradient on the desert logo. i actually like it

Hefty plates
Old on the left, new on the right
Posted Image

slight tweak. not worse, not better.

some more i ran across

Malibu Pina Colada
Posted Image
old on the right new on the left.

minor tweaks.

Kraft BBQ Sauce
Posted Image
Old on the right, new on the left

downgrade. The new packaging makes it look like a generic brand.

KC Masterpiece
Posted Image
old on the left new on the right.

the logos is about the only thing that keeps it looking like its not a generic brand. do however dig the western look to it, which i think is what they were going for.

Betty Crocker Scalloped Potatoes
Posted Image
new on the left, old on the right.

box is abit jarring nothing really spectacular.

Looking at all of these makes me wonder why Kraft is hellbent on making their products look more store brandish?
I once had a car but I crashed it. I once had a guitar but I smashed it. I once, wait where am I going with this?

trying to compete with store brands? people are probably buying store brands more often in a bad economy.

changing a product to look like a generic store brand isn't going to entice customers to buy that product any more than with the current packaging. when customers see Old El Paso taco Shells for $2 and Great Value taco shells for $1, logic states customers are going to buy the GV product over the name brand. so they can make their products look generic but won't entice customers to buy that product unless the price is comparable to the store brand.

very minor tweak. probably covered on here somewhere.

Kellogg's Pop tarts
Posted Image

Old on the left, new on the right

upgrade, much cleaner looking.

Lipton
Posted Image

Old on the left, new on the right

bread vendor was in my way so i had a hard time getting a pic of this one. one of the new packages that has come out. the only changes i've seen is on the family sized boxes, but i'm fairly sure the smaller lipton boxes are getting changed too.

Gatorade
Posted Image

Old on the left, new on the right

seen this for a while. but i really am not digging the gray label. still don't like the bolt-G clip art logo.

Coke
Posted Image

Old on the left, new on the right.

This is a case where the packaging itself is new. The label is the same but the bottle design is new.
