I am Sorry Costco. We love you, but this topic is not going away.
200+ Comments and counting...
You've asked for it: There is a Toilet Paper that could beat Costco toilet papers in both quality and price. // IMPORTANT: This deal goes on and off. Price goes up and down. Make sure to double check price before buying ($22.63 & Eligible for Free Super Saver Shipping on orders over $25)
*People are not happy with Costco's new toilet papers (I still think they are the best deal). Read comments.
There has been big changes on Costco (Kirkland Signature) toilet papers.
- Old Costco toilet papers came in packages of 36 rolls. The new package contains 30 rolls.
- Old Costco toilet papers were individually wrapped. The new Costco toilet papers are packaged as 6 pack.
- New Costco toilet papers are supposed to be softer and thicker. I do believe they are slightly softer and thicker. I am beginning to wonder if they are not as strong, which can be a problem.
- Old Costco toilet papers were $17.99 for 36 rolls - this comes out to be $.50 each roll ($0.499722222) - this is a very good price.
- New Costco toilet papers are $14.99 for 30 rolls - this comes out to be $.50 each roll ($0.499666666). So, per roll price was not changed.
- New rolls of toilet papers are too large (fat) for toilet paper holder.
People are not happy about the changes. If there are better toilet papers (better deal) I would like to know, so please leave me a note.

I wanted to shoot a demonstration video by using peanut butter as sample prop. Then I decided not to do that due to the fact that a lot of people may find it distasteful.
