Food Advertisements – What Makes Us Buy It?

Food product choice is overwhelming as well as TV commercials and print advertisements that want to sell their food products to us. Who to believe? How to choose? Do you trust what is shown to you?

Obviously, it’s up to each of us to decide what we eat but if we’re constantly bombarded with images of food every time we pick up a magazine then we’re going to be swayed in what we choose

So what’s behind the advertisements? I am not an expert but here are a few examples of tricky advertisements that sell food to us because…

  1. Uck. Remind me not to EVER buy joghurtleicht, whatever the hell that is.

    Other than that – very cool post. I think you covered just about every base on this one.

  2. There are too many advertisements gears just for the sake of marketing fast foods or unhealthy food. Everyone needs to get involved in Americans health. I think that it is a national security problem. How can an unhealthy nation truly defend itself. Yes we have Atomic weapons, but like 9/11 we were very unprepared for that attack. How do you know if a country or group or terrorist organization maybe planning a land invasion somewhere on Americas beaches. How will we know if they are all ready here and just waiting for the right time to strike. There are all kinds of ways to strike at America and we want be prepared. Our physical health is just as important as our psyci. Lets change that by all of us working together. Which will also reduce the excessive amounts of hospital expenses which can be avoided with proper diet and exercises.

  3. Wow, this was really awesome. And all of it was so true. Expecially this one “It Is Delicious”. The thing I want to know is.. why can’t the people atleast make the food thats in the box look good, instead of getting our hopes up, and waising our money just to get some crappy disgusting thing that’s supposed to be food?=P

  4. Ok the pepsi twist one is just wrong but it is amazing after seeing those my first thought is that I want skittles!! But all of the first images just don’t seem to surprise me. Packaged food like that truly is a let down. It’s amazing they can put pictures like that with such false advertisements! Wonder how they are in business. Do they expect to have each person in the world buy one and keep them in business because I can guarantee you no one will buy a second!!
