      >You didn't stop to think, chickens aren't in the sea?
      No? Why would I? Why would anybody? People don't ponder the metaphors behind brand names. Nobody sees a pack of Starburst and thinks, "I don't get it. There are no stars to be seen anywhere at all within this package and the candies themselves do not burst. What gives?" They just eat the fricking candy. If the name of your food product is going to contain a word that describes a food product, that word should be what is actually contained in the fricking food product it describes, should it not?
      >There's a mermaid picture.
      OK, so? Starbucks' logo is a mermaid, nobody gives them shit for not selling fish. Why would that mean anything? If you're going to go full Literal Larry shouldn't you be suing Chicken of the Sea for not selling actual mermaid flesh?
      >Why are you illiterate with brain damage?
      Why are you defending the seedy misleading practices of a multimillion dollar corporation? Like okay yeah sure I didn't pay super close attention to what I was buying but that shouldn't matter that much. I shouldn't have to pay THAT close attention to these things. The branding here was clearly designed to take advantage of the fact that most people are going to reflexively see the word "CHICKEN" on the container for a food product and think, "Oh, this is chicken," and move on. I'm willing to bet a considerable portion of sales for this particular product are just mistakes, and it's wrong for giant companies to take deliberate steps to profit off of the minor mistakes a consumer may make like that. Why do you think this isn't an understandable mistake to make?
      The solution isn't to tell people to make fewer mistakes, the solution is to stop the sale of products that lean into those mistakes.

        dude I guarantee you they didn't put that much tought into it, don't attribute to malice what can be attributed to stupidity
        besides, if anything, what you described would just hurt their sales given that canned chicken is not very sought after unlike canned tuna

        so much of a hurry that you don't notice the can is entirely surrounded by canned fish, in the canned fish section? or do burger supermarkets just throw shit on the shelves anywhere they can find a space?

    Don't stores usually keep their product types together. So canned meats next to the canned meats and canned fish next to the canned fish. Shouldn't the other canned fish have tipped you off?

    It's simple.
    Americans are somewhat moronic and conservative in all the wrong ways. They are afraid of trying anything new, so marketing companies try going with the "tastes just like chicken" bullshit. Hence, "chicken of the sea".

    Fun fact: Pork has been also chicken-ified. Most pork is now tasteless, made to resemble chicken breast. Wasn't always this way.
