Quote of the Day (Consumer Obfuscation Edition)

Bounty has literally 8 sizes of rolls, and they are all named some variation of "Large", January 17, 2016

This review is from: Bounty Select-A-Size Paper Towels, 12 Huge Rolls (Health and Beauty)

I'm not here to comment on the quality of the paper towels. I'm here to point out the fact that Bounty sells paper towels in the following marketing nonsense sizes: Regular, Large, Big, Giant, Mega, Super, Double, and Huge. This is dumb. Large dumb. Big dumb. Mega dumb. Huge dumb.

I assume the point of all these sizes is to make it impossible to price compare ("wait, which is more, 6 Mega rolls or 8 Giant rolls?"). Intentional obfuscation like this is basically just hostile to consumers...so screw Bounty.

The above was a useful comment in the customer ratings for the Bounty 6 pack of HUGE rolls.
