Now, this may not actually be the worst product ever, but it certainly is one the most wasteful ones I've seen in a long time. I saw this while shopping yesterday and I had to stop and actually take a look at it, mostly because it was just a strange product to begin with.
It's called the Lucky Break Wishbone and is, essentially, a plastic wishbone. "Making your wishes come true is a snap with our 99.999% realistic synthetic Lucky Break Wishbones." No more fighting over the wishbone! Great for vegetarians!
So, you spend approximately 3 seconds snapping this thing in two and it's utility is over. Do these actually bestow any luck? And once you snap it, then what?
The clincher is on their website's FAQ page, where they have the question and answer:
Can I recycle Lucky Break Wishbones?
Yes, of course. We are very conscious about our global environment. Both the packaging and wishbones are recyclable.
