Did you know that Colgate, of all companies, once tried to sell a line of frozen dinners? I learned that yesterday while visiting the Museum of Failure, a fun traveling exhibit that’s currently at Industry City in Brooklyn. It’s filled with over 150 product flops — some that were misguided from the start and some that fell victim to bad timing or just bad luck. There are a few sports-related items (including the original XFL, Fox’s glowing puck, and a urinal shaped like a golf club), but I feel like even the non-sports items will be of interest to Uni Watch readers.
I took a bunch of photos. In each case, the photo of the product is followed by a shot of its accompanying informational placard. Enjoy!
