I'm not sure if this exactly fits into this topic (but it certainly does not deserve its own). Anyway, I had a job working at a Safeway grocery store for about 6 months until i quit a month or two ago, as you can imagine I observed a lot of different packaging changes. But this one stood out to me, I've been meaning to post it here for a long time but i am only now just getting to it.

So it must have been late last year, there was this big kosher display in the back of the store that had common products but they were kosher. I was putting back this bag of Lays potato chips when I noticed something odd.

I don't know packaging labels by heart but something didn't seem right. I looked both ways for my manager and then took a picture and made my way over to where the rest of the chips were. I found what I thought i would find, a bad of the same kind of Lays that was not kosher.

Posted Image

Notice how the Y on the kosher product has a loop and the non-kosher product doesn't? Why is this? Do they seriously find it necessary to make such a small change? is there another reason that I don't know about? Can anyone shed some light on this mystery?

Cheer detergent has changed their packaging design. Again.

Old (I think this is the previous design):

New:

If you do a Google image search for "cheer detergent," you'll see how many different designs that Cheer has used.
May God bless you all and fill your hearts with faith, hope, and love!

When I was abroad in India and Germany I only saw the curly Y.

2 changes.
1) Gatorade, dont have a pic but basically the G bolt logo is a but smaller and now outlines in dark grey, so gatorade still looks mediocre, to me it suffers the same problem the old nestea 20oz's did, it uses GRAY as its label color, so all of them look diet! I have to really make sure I dont get the G2 ones since they taste worse. So the regular gatordes should either be green or the color of the drink! G2 can stay gray.

2)There seems to be now 1.25 liters of coke products. really? Theres the .5 liters, 20oz, 1 liters, 2 liters. and now 1.25 liters?
So heres a pic, which ALSO shows a NEW label for Seagram's Ginger Ale!

Edit: Quick Google search shows that the 1.25L size was for Coke's 125th anniversary. So where ever you are, Coke must be the bottler and distributor for Dr Pepper.

I've been noticing Coca-Cola 16oz bottles with an enlarged logo on them. Diet Coke bottles also have the logo enlarged.

Corona has a new bottle with a full-bottle picture design replacing the classic label

Posted Image

I don't really like it. The old one was iconic and was unmistakably Corona. This looks more like some sort of wine cooler.

They are/were Limited Editions,

"The objective of the campaign is to help consumers find their happy place, wherever and whatever that may be. The designs reflect Corona?s personality as an approachable, confident, smart, timeless, easy going and fun loving premium quality brand. The goals of the packaging design were to increase visibility at retail, drive the intent to purchase and create WOW and it worked. The brightly coloured bottles are generating a lot of curiosity and appeal. The new designs also elevate Corona above the crowd of "me too" beer brands that are flooding the market."

while not on the packaging, Planters has been using a more 'real' version of Mr. Peanut.

i don't know what it is but i really prefer the cartoon drawing here. I just don't like the computer generated version of it. it just seems lifeless and not as iconic.

"I walked away from the Last Great Time War, I marked the passing of the Timelords, I saw the birth of the universe and I watched as time ran out, moment by moment until nothing remained -- no time, no space, just ME! I walked in universes where the laws of physics were devised by the mind of a mad man! And I watched universes freeze and creations burn, I have seen things you wouldn't believe, I have lost things you will never understand! And I know things, secrets that must never be told, knowledge that must never be spoken! Knowledge that will make parasite gods blaze! So come on then! Take it! Take it all baby! Have it! You have it all!"

The best part is you can still see and feel the printed-on labels underneath the full wraps.

Fig Newtons changed their labeling.
Downgrade imo, just because it now says Newtons with Original Fig on the right?
No one is gonna say "yea gotta get the newtons original fig"
So I dont care for it.

They are doing it again.

This time in select markets and the labels feature six teams from Mexican First Division.
