11 Most Unfortunate Product Names

Real product names: from “Pee Cola” to “Megapussi”, and Australian “Golden Gaytime” ice-cream, what were they thinking?

#1 Golden Gaytime (ice-cream)

Golden Gaytime is an iconic ice-cream in Australia, its name survived intact despite the homosexual connotations in modern decades. The company just decided to play up the camp name with the boxes, holding the words "4 delicious chances to have a gay time."

Here's a classic Golden Gaytime TV ad from the 80s, "Let the Gaytimes roll!"

And a more recent Golden Gaytime TV ad (hilarious!):

#2 Pee Cola (soft drink)

A soft drink from Ghana.

#3 Shitto (sauce)

Shitto is an allegedly delicious Ghanaian sauce with a name that makes Americans laugh, while everyone in Ghana seems to love it.

#4 Vergina (beer)

#5 Megapussi (potato chips)

--Our readers Oona, Lance and Peppar from Finland wrote us to explain "Megapussi" is a Finnish word for a "mega bag" and not actually the product's name. Thanks!

#6 Wack off! (insect repellent)

Australian repellent "used by the armed forces." They surely need it.

#7 Jussipussi (bread)

So that's how Finnish bread tastes like.

#8 SARS (drink)

This drink from New Zealand shares its name with SARS: Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome.

#9 Cock flavoured mix (soup)

#10 666 (cold medicine)

#11 Ayds (diet candy)

Ayds (pronounced "AIDS") was a diet candy from the 1980s. Years later, the name would have its current meaning.
