20g Extra ‘Hawa Or Dhoka’? Desis Discuss Tricky Packaging Of ‘Hide & Seek’ Biscuits

We are all used to opening a seemingly large packet of chips only to be disappointed to find it filled with fewer chips and more air inside. To help others avoid such dhoka in life, a desi Redditor previously compared the quantity of chips in the packets of 3 brands available in India, to see which one offers more for Rs. 10.

And now not just chips, but biscuit packs also giving us dhoka. Another Indian Redditor shared photos of his biscuit pack which claims ’20 g Extra’ on the cover, but upon opening the biscuits seem to still be fewer with gaps of air and plastic in between.

Looks like biscuits have also changed during Covid. 😛

Some people explained why this happens.

Nevertheless, mood as a consumer = ruined!

Apart from extra air in chips and biscuits, what other packaging dhokas have you faced? Tell us in the comments section!
