    I like the white kind

  2. dreamcatcher2 says:

    It looks to me like somebody with a labelmaker just added something on for fun…

    First designer colors, now designer flavors. Mmmm two-ply chocolate truffle.

  4. unholycinna says:

    I want raspberry. Please.

  5. dreamcatcher2 says:

    Although now that I look at it, a Unit Price of $1.83 is not 1/8 of $2.19…

  6. DrGirlfriend says:

    Mmmmm fiber

  7. dorianh49 says:

    green flavor is better

    Maybe the sign maker was listening to too much X-Ray Spex:

    My mind is like a plastic bag
    That corresponds to all those ads
    It sucks up all the rubbish
    That is fed in through by ear
    I eat Kleenex for breakfast
    And use soft hygienic Weetabix
    To dry my tears

    Edible Kleenex…not a bad idea and it’s eco-friendly. It tastes like Kleenex but it’s snot.

    Aren’t they all booger flavored when your done with them?

  11. homerjay says:

    Its definitely been P-Touched.

  12. Televiper says:

    I hear the term “flavors” used in place “varieties,” and “configuration” a lot in the tech industry.

  13. forgottenpassword says:

    You know… kleenex is quite filling! And doesnt pack on the pounds!

  14. realwx says:

    Who knew?

  15. MBZ321 says:

    Hah I recognize that price sign anywhere..well the design anyway…it’s from Wegmans. The white strip is a label maker thing for sure. The store that I work in has one behind the service desk so they can make people a nametag real quick. Someone got creative…and this gives me an idea :P

  16. route52 says:

    @MBZ321: WEGMANS!!!!!!! I recognized it too, but you beat me to it (:

    I love the use of flavors for non-gustatory genre differentiation.

    “What’s wrong with this sign?”

    It’s on consumerist? *cough*

    @Televiper: ditto

  18. kjherron says:

    I used to have a dog that loved to eat used kleenex. It got to where he’d come running every time I sneezed, just the same way he’d react to dog biscuits.

  19. Jigen says:

    Have to love Wegmans. We can be pretty stupid some times.

  20. MasonMacabre says:

    I am a bit confused at the $1.83 unit price. It is an 8-pack, but that doesn’t add up. Maybe the person who figured the math was eating too many Kleenex?

  21. Elle Rayne says:

    I love this! Haha!

  22. niteflytes says:

    kjherron, my dog has taken up the same disgusting habit. Maybe I can find a flavor she won’t like.

  23. @dreamcatcher2: But it is the unit price per 100.

  24. Jesse in Japan says:

    I has a flavor!

  25. Busybyeski says:

    @GitEmSteveDave: You got it. So 120 of the 100 means a 20% increase, taking 1.83 exactly to 2.19. At first I was confused too, but the unit price IS per 100.

  26. Dead Wrestlers Society says:

    Flavors is actually an industry standard. I do a lot of work with various P&G product lines and they always use flavors to describe things such as deodorant, deteregent, etc.

    I remember the first time I saw it, it struck me as odd but that’s the terminology.

  27. Gev says:

    @dorianh49: Green tastes like Lysol. Red or blue is where it’s at.

  28. Indecision says:

    @faust1200: “Edible Kleenex…not a bad idea and it’s eco-friendly. It tastes like Kleenex but it’s snot.”

    I wasn’t expecting that, and I almost spat out my coffee.

  29. SpenceMan01 says:

    @Indecision: Ditto here. My coworker got a kick out of it too.

    @faust1200: You get bonus points for humor.

  30. Shawna says:

    At least it wasn’t printed that way by Wegmans, just added on later (and then laminated it looks like). The pricing people are probably so used to adding that for ice cream and stuff they didn’t realize their mistake.
    I wonder if the pink kleenex tastes like bubblegum?

  31. FLConsumer says:

    C’mon, Kleenex makes the perfect gift for that family member with pica. Then again, so does everything else they can fit in their mouth.

  32. SoCalGNX says:

    The all flavors description must be why my Doberman likes to eat this stuff.

  33. pinkbunnyslippers says:

    @MBZ321: Yes! Wegmans!!!! Best store ever!!!

  34. Seandals says:

    I work in the grocery business and “flavors” is a term that is used for any item that has more than one type. Flavors of bleach, flavors of cat litter, flavors of deodorant, etc etc. How this came to be the used, I have no clue but at every store I have worked at, its been the norm.

  35. Justinh6 says:

    woot it is a wegman’s sign!

  36. tvh2k says:

    I <3 Wegman’s! And yes, this is def fake.
