Deceptive Desserts

My wife went shopping at CostCo the other day and got the usual stuff we get along with a couple of new items to try out. Among the new stuff were some twisted strawberry puff pastries that looked delicious with powdered sugar and strawberry jam/jelly.

But they tasted like cardboard, there was no sweet, there was almost no flavor at all, just a decidedly uninteresting pseudo-crunch and a mouthful of material.

I don't see the rest of the package getting consumed anytime soon. Who makes a dessert that looks good but tastes bad? I'd much rather have it the other way.
