We appreciate your feedback and apologize for the difficulty opening the containers and reading the information on the side of the tub. We have pass on your concerns to our Packaging team and want to share some tips that may help in the meantime. If you tilt the container slightly, the light makes the information on the side easier to read. Also, to make it easier to open, hold the container with fingers on the short sides and lift and peel the corner furthest away from you. Call us at 1-800-255-2164 anytime 24/7, if you need us and thanks again for your help.
