Trader Joe's Unscented White 95 Count 2 Ply Tissues
I love the whimsical box these tissues come in. The other sides say, "I'm there when you need to pick up icky things," "I'm there when you're sick," and "I'm there when you run out of toilet paper."
So the box gets a laugh from guests. But I'm afraid that's not enough to save it, because the tissues themselves are pretty rough and harsh. I don't go for the expensive, ultra-softened tissues. My long-time mainstay is what Puffs now calls its "basic" line. For me it hits the sweet spot in balancing cost and softness. TJ's are both more expensive and less soft. That is never going to be a winning combination.
Will I buy it again?
Sadly, no. But if that thought makes me cry, I still have a few of these tissues left to wipe away the tears.
