The Worst Products We Came Across

Not every product we review turns out great. As part of our policy – we ensure we give out these details too, in an unbiased way. Here’s a quick look at the products that got the bottom-most place in our ratings and reviews this year. But first –

What criteria categorize these products as the least preferred food choices of 2023?

  • Lack of value for money.
  • Failure to fulfill intended purpose or meet claims made.
  • Inferior compared to better options in the same category.
  • Inability to meet established performance parameters.

These are products that missed the mark in a particular category or fell short of expectations in multiple parameters. Ultimately, any product scoring under 2.5 Mishrys (out of 5) is included in this list.

In our various multi-brand reviews, few of the products received a score of 2.5 Mishry’s or below. In a comparative context, these products failed to deliver satisfactory performance. Let’s take a brief overview of these products and the reasons behind their inability to meet the mark:

  • While finding the Tastiest Tomato Salsa, Tex Mex Salsalito Salsa Dip received a score of 2.5 Mishrys due to its overly chunky consistency, and the lack of fresh flavors.
  • Mothers Dairy Cold Coffee emerged as the least favored brand in our exploration of the best cold coffee brands in India. It obtained a score of 2 Mishrys due to its excessive sweetness, lack of desired consistency, and insufficient coffee flavor.
  • Cravora Classic Cold Coffee, another contender of the best cold coffee brand review earned a score of 2.5 Mishrys, primarily due to its unfavorable taste and average consistency.
  • Furthermore, we reviewed two variants of Dabur Hommade Chutneys – Kalonji Tamatar Chutney & Dilli ki Hari Chatpati Chutney. While the tamatar chutney proved to be decent, the Dilli ki Hari Chatpati Chutney received a score of 2.5 Mishrys. The flavor and consistency were both in need of significant improvement.
  • We also reviewed multiple tools that proved to be rather ineffective including – Handheld Electric Vegetable Chopper | Silicone Dishwashing Gloves | Plastic Gujiya Maker |Silicone Dish Cleaner.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some interesting FAQs on best and worst products of 2023

Yes. All the products mentioned above have been meticulously tried and tested by Team Mishry.

The criteria we establish vary based on the product category under review. For instance, a packet of chips is evaluated on aspects such as crunch and flavor, while a spice blend is assessed for aroma and flavor. Additionally, when reviewing appliances, distinct criteria are applied, encompassing factors like usability, design, and material.

The evaluation of a product is contingent upon its category, coupled with the brand’s assertions, and fundamental factors such as price, packaging, ingredients, nutri-label, taste, and texture. These are among the primary parameters considered. If a product falls short on these established criteria, it receives a lower rating on the Mishry scale.

We consistently value a clean ingredient list, brand transparency, and the use of quality produce. Innovation is also highly appreciated in our evaluations.

Final Words
