1.0 out of 5 starsDid not receive what was ordered
August 12, 2018
I have a subscribe & save for this. Should be #18 rolls. I haven't had a problem till the last shipment when I received 6 huge rolls instead of 18. These rolls are not convenient. They are so huge they don't work. And going from 18 rolls to 6 does not work. They should not be able to substitute different products if you are paying for a monthly membership for a certain product.
This is a good-sized roll. In my pics, the Charmin is on the right or bottom compared to the other roll.
+ Granted it is thick, so one should not need as much. + It doesn't feel rough and it doesn't feel so soft that it will disintegrate immediately upon using, like some brands do
My Costco Kirkland brand is less expensive per roll ($0.63 per, if ordering online) AND the rolls are comparable, just slightly different shape (see pics). Thus it is difficult for me to consider a product that is more than twice the price, per roll, but you aren't getting twice as much product (at least none I can determine).
I do get 425 sheets with the Kirkland brand vs 363 with this Charmin Mega Family roll. But that is completely subjective since every company's sheet squares are different dimensions.
Overall I like it and it is too much work to track usage over time, then do all the math to know if it is truly cost-effective or not compared to my old go to. Just for portability and feel, I like it.
I'm beginning to think the continuing evolution of the toilet paper roll size might have gone a bit far. These are huge! They're like the same diameter as a paper towel roll. They may not fit on some toilet paper dispensers. The paper itself is quite good, just be aware that if you have one of those recessed dispensers designed for a more typical roll diameter, this may not work for you.
Is there such a thing as too big of a roll? Maybe to some, and we still offer smaller rolls, no worries! We know others hate those dreaded roll changes though and the bigger the roll, the more Go's you'll get. For those with holders that may not fit our biggest rolls, we offer a free Charmin Extender. If you'd like to claim yours, just give us a call at 1(800) 777-1410 so we can help!
Some notes about the roll size though - this is an even larger diameter so it may not fit on all dispensers - the width of the roll is shorter than average. I find it odd that they sell a "mega roll", but reduce the width of the sheet. Feels like a bait and switch to an extent and makes comparing the cost to other options particularly hard.
We appreciate you leaving your thoughts on our Ultra Soft Family Mega rolls! We strive to wow our fans so their go is the very best and your feedback is appreciated. The width of this roll is right in line with most of our Charmin sizes, and we hope you’re finding it’s just the right size for a good clean. It may also help to know that we offer a free Extender for those whose holders may need a little boost in fitting our largest rolls.

I was surprised at how much tissue is actually on each roll! Usually Charmin rolls are small, but these rolls are big. The tissue is actually pretty soft and still gets the job done without taking off half your booty skin. Unfortunately, it does leave lint and tear fairly easy. Still a great value though for as many rolls and as much tissue as you get.
We always like to switch things up and surprise you every now and again and we're glad to hear we had your back on this one. We do want to share with you that there can be one of two causes for excessive lint. First, the softness is directly related to the amount of lint; meaning, the softer the toilet paper, the more lint there will be. The second cause is lint builds up on paper manufacturing lines. In this case, we do regularly shut down our manufacturing lines to remove excess lint in an attempt to reduce the chances of it happening. Please give us a call at (800) 777-1410 because the only 'tearing" that should be happening is when you can't believe you've lived your life so long without us.
