I'm trying to find a replacement for Northern toilet paper (which I've used for decades). I love it, but my Wallyworld has switched to only carrying MEGA rolls of the stuff.
Speaking of MEGA rolls, why the hell are all the brands moving toward them? The damn things barely fit on my dispensers, making it
difficult to actually get the number of sheets you want without the roll
getting stuck and ripping off just one damn sheet. As we all know, no one can do a damn thing with just one square. (Yes, I'm thinking of Seinfeld, too.)
First, I tried Great Value, which was on par with Northern. Mostly. Smaller squares. Meh. I'd keep buying it, though. However, since I bought the first package of GV, my Wallyworld stopped carrying the normal sized rolls of it. Gah!
Angel Soft also had mega rolls but it was cheap. It was also a DUD. I have to use twice as much to do the same job as Northern. And it shreds. Also, Gah!
I have a really tough time making myself buy Charmin, even though someone I trust recommended it to me. I find their bear commercials disgusting. If you can't get away with it using people, why are you getting away with it using cartoon bears? Gross.
And really, who buys toilet paper from a commercial? Usually people have one brand they abide by and they never change - you know, unless changes in product or packaging force a change. Are the grody bears really encouraging anyone to switch brands? If you go by commercials, Angel Soft is awesome. Liars. How do people find a new brand of TP to use? Do people ask their friends and families for recommendations on toilet paper?
Anyway, the hunt for a good brand continues. I have a couple rolls left of the cheap-ass Angel Soft and then I get to start on the new package of Cottonelle. :fingers crossed:
