  1. idk why, but the green color on the packaging for the Pillsbury cookies at the top made me think that this was a sugar-free cookie variety. obviously it’s quite the opposite, but if i saw it at the store, i’d probably assume that and keep browsing.
    they actually look pretty good tho.

      1. CoffeeMate comes to mind – their sugar free denotation is in that bright shade of green. Some Russell Stover products too, iirc. and decaffeinated coffees too. not exactly the same but still in the *lacking* category, lol.

        1. Interesting! I suppose that I have never noticed because I simply don’t seek them out. And now that you’ve brought it to my awareness, I’m probably in for some Baader-Meinhoff moments!

            Love that reference!

      2. I’m diabetic and most products, especially diary and things around the bakery are labeled green for sugar free or the more trendy “zero sugar”, it makes it easier for me to search for what I need (except when they change the color coding). I’ve even noticed my decaf coffee varieties are switching from orange to green to denote decaf.

      1. SnackWell’s are still around although certainly less popular. They are pretty good although they’re loaded with sugar. Their whole shtick is that they are fat free.

  2. From a Washington Post article: Muted colors: When food manufacturers want to give you the impression that their food is more healthful and natural (read: free of artificial ingredients, less processed) they tend to steer clear of bold colors on their packaging in favor of lighter, more muted tones. That’s because research shows people associate paler hues with a better-for-you products and bright colors with more intense, possibly artificially boosted, flavors. Healthier products in the United States tend to have pale white, green, brown and yellow coloration, so plucking a product off the shelf based on package color might actually lead you to a better choice. But then again it might not. Color impacts our perception more powerfully than we might realize — even to the point of defying logic. One study, for example, found that a candy bar with a green calorie label was perceived as healthier than the exact same bar with the same calorie information on a red label.
