When Apple launched the new iPhone 15 during the ‘Wanderlust Event’ in Cupertino, California, they showcased how Apple had a zero carbon impact on the environment through an intriguing advertisement. However, soon after that, the company was trolled on X after they gave plastic-wrapped cookies to attendees of the event.
X user Nikias Molina took to the microblogging platform to share a picture of the plastic-wrapped cookies that were labelled, “Welcome to California.“
In the caption of the post, Molina wrote, “Apple gave us cookies at the event. They were so good.” (Also Read: Apple is offering ₹6,000 discount on iPhone 15 models. How to avail?)

Here’s what people are saying about this post:
An individual joked, “Our best cookies yet. We used all-natural flour, butter, and eggs. The plastic wrap is leftover from the unsold iPhones. We can’t wait for you to take a bite of these. They will be available September 22 at your nearest bakery.”
A second added, “iCookie – available for pre-orders starting September 22nd They skipped it in the keynote folks. But it’s real.”
“It would have been a nice touch if the wrapper had said, ‘Made in Cupertino.’ Or, you know, been made of biodegradable material or something,” posted a third.
A fourth expressed, “Mother nature bombastic side-eye. Is that a plastic wrap?”
A fifth said, “Apple: spends 10 minutes talking about becoming environmentally friendly. Also Apple: gives out tons of cookies wrapped in plastic.”
“Apple is saving the environment but serving cookies packaged in plastic bags,” commented another.
