“Gong” for gummies
SUGAR-FILLED chewable gummy vitamins have received the dubious honour of being included in this year’s “Shonky Awards” compiled by consumer group CHOICE.
The 12th annual award list names and shames “the shonkiest products and companies taking advantage of Australian consumers,” singling out Nature’s Way and Bioglan in particular for their marketing approaches targeting children and using celebrity endorsements.
Claims that the “sticky, sugary” products are good for the teeth were also criticised.
The Shonkys also highlighted the Pain Erazor pen for claims offering “drug free pain relief through the science of electro-analgesia”.
