A woman ordered an electric toothbrush online. However, when she received the packet she grew suspicious about it. Upon checking, she found chaat masala inside it.

In the age of online shopping, we order several things. From clothes and jewellery to even groceries, many things can be delivered to our homes within minutes. However, we may sometimes receive the wrong products due to mix-ups. Recently, something similar happened to a woman who ordered an electric toothbrush from Amazon but received masala boxes instead.

According to Twitter user @badassflowerbby, her mother had paid cash on delivery for the pricey toothbrush. She picked the specific vendor because it provided the item at a discount. The user's mother didn't pay for the box because she thought it was 'suspiciously light' when it came. So, when she opened the packet, she discovered four boxes of MDH Chat Masala inside.

@badassflowerbby also added, "The seller keeps their listings 1-3k lower than other sellers on big-ticket items, which tempts more people to order from them. One may argue you should check seller feedback before ordering, but how many people do that? Especially as you have to click away from the listing to do so."

Take a look at her tweet here:


This tweet was shared on February 12. Since being shared on social media, it has been liked by more than 600 people, and several have even left comments on it.

Take a look at a few reactions below:

An individual in the Twitter comments section wrote, "Same happened with me in 2021. I ordered an electric toothbrush, and he sent me a normal brush. I think this seller has changed his name." Another person added, "Why did you order from a seller who has 92% negative reviews?" "This time, order masala. You might end up with a toothbrush," joked a third.
