6 Things That Are Now Sold In Sachet In Nigeria

November 16, 2020

Nigeria is where everything comes to die. Business franchise, profitable establishments, true love, and even onions, if we are being honest. Inflation is now at an all-time high, and consumer brands are now seeking ways to enable people afford their products. Enter sachets. Now, you can buy Baileys like paraga. This is Nigeria.

1. Baileys

At least a lot of people who could not afford the bottle will be able to buy it.

2. Dettol

This one looks like Nutri C. Let’s just hope nobody goes near it when they are high.

3. Morning Fresh

“Eco Pack” is the word. Because the way things are going in this country, economy and economics must be put into consideration.

4. Cornflakes

NASCO Cornflakes 35g – Tmybest

This was one of the earliest. The cornflakes itself stopped being N350, and everything went skrrrr after that.

5. Quaker Oats

Sachet Poverty. | Emporium of Words

This is proof that no matter your class of degree, Nigeria will bring you down to your knees.

6. Golden Morn

Nestle Golden Morn (50g) | 10 Sachets – OpusDandies

Funny but true: there’s another sachet of sachet being sold. The larger sachet goes for N80 or N100. Now, there’s another one that is being sold for N50.

This tweet summaries it well:

There’s something about being Nigerian that is so unique. That something is the food aspect. Most Nigerian families don’t follow a food timetable, but through an unspoken rule, they have fixed the food you eat on weekdays and the food you are to eat on weekends.
