I bought a 6 mega roll of these (Bounty Basic) and if I hadn't already opened them I would return them to the store for a refund. I don't like them, they are too rough, not soft like the original Bounty & I don't feel they do as good of a job as the original. I have used the original for years & always can count on them being the same, but I did not notice that it said Basic & I should have been warned that they were not the original formula. I even used the Original for napkins but wouldn't dare try to use these as such as the texture is just too rough! Why spoil a good product with a inferior one to replace it? From now on I will be sure to double check my purchase to be sure that I buy the Original. If these were advertised as new, it should have been displayed in the store. As you can tell, I hate the Basic Bounty towels & a suggestion: I think that you should discontinue production of these as they certainly don't live up to the "Bounty" name!
