7 Food-Product Launches That Didn't Go Over So Well

In preparation for Tesco's upcoming strawberries-and-cream sandwich, Shortlist has put together a list of specialty foods that, to pinch a term from the Massachusetts board of education, "underperformed." Tesco made the list twice, once for strawberries-and-cream thing and for a lasagna sandwich I can't even look at without risking a Technicolor yawn. The McLobster and Coca-Cola Blak were two other flops that aren't discussed much, and the whole list is pretty impressive from an obscurity standpoint. I was wondering why they didn't put Reddi-Bacon on there, but maybe they figured, as I did, that it would probably be more successful now than it was 40 years ago. Via BuzzFeed.
