Problems with over packaging

We asked you to send us examples of products that you thought had been over packaged - check out the gallery below to see what Which? members have caught on camera. 

If you've bought a product you think is excessively wrapped, email details of the product and your photos to helpwanted@which.co.uk, putting 'Excess packaging' in the subject line. We'll publish the best examples here.
