Dairystix -- social media wrongness

On 2 March 2012,  as part of a long-running series on stupid product labelling, Simon Hoggart wrote about Dairystix...

And on a BA flight, Alan Randall was given a Dairystix tube containing milk-style fluid for his tea. "Follow Dairystix on Facebook" it urges. "My dull life has just got interesting," he says.

Now, of course, Dairystix is not the only company producing a dull commodity which has come over all Dad-dancing-at-the-disco in its whizzy, moderne use of the social media internets. But, for proof of the wrongness of the practice, one need only consult the Facebook page which Alan Randall was exhorted to follow, which has a pitiful 58 "likes". A typical comment left there...

On several occasions I've tried to rip the sachet open, but it's only taken the corner off, leaving a hole about the size of a pin prick, and then when I squeezed it, the milk ejaculated out onto myself/the seat in front, or worse, the person sat next to me. I think Dairystix do this on purpose to make you look like a massive bellend. 

...and another...

 My office smells of sour milk since we switched to Dairystix. And it looks like the set of a porno.

 Company Facebook pages: just because you can, doesn't mean you should.
