10 of the worst product flops ever
These ideas looked good on paper, but headed to the product graveyard after consumers passed.
New Coke failed as a product but resulted in a ton of marketing attention. That of course put the brand right in the spotlight. A successful failure might be a good way to capture the whole debacle.
Coke is great when mixed with the right stuff. But if I'm drinking soda for the pleasure of a cola, I'll take Pepsi over coke any day!!!!
Celery flavored Jello, no: Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray I'd definitely recommend, at least for washing down kosher-style deli. Sort of a near-beer without fermenting, as far as I know. The one thing going against it these days is that like the rest of the Dr. Brown's line, it's a gourmet beverage going for a gourmet price. Other than that, don't knock it 'til you try it.
As for more football action during the year, I think players not making the cut in the N.F.L. have found their element in Arena Football, based on what little I've seen so far. After nearly dying in Philly (after a championship, I think), the Soul have a following and are covered in local sports.
i still miss Vincent Kennedy MacMahon's XFL(libertarian football league), which died due to his hiring fired and defected NFL players and the fact the media mocked it(extremely fraudulent league?!) and furthermore saturday night live complained about the premier show ruining their live broadcast making s'n'l excessively late. i knew the smokeless cigarette would fail, but the future brought us the E(lectronic) cigarette, which i cannot smoke. olean gave me the running beef. new coke was a sick prank, just like clear pepsi(not listed), which looked like spit. but the one product which got wiped-out was the HD-DVD, GTH BLU RAY!!!, you demon of digital technology!!!! i hate the blu ray dvd combo market, which has proven to be a dvd format snobs paradise and i won't own a blu ray player until standard dvd goes 100% extinct worldwide!!!! when i do buy blu ray/dvd combo's i keep the dvd, but convert the blu ray disc into a coaster for my drinks(paint the bottom of the disc with black marker), so there!!
