Advantages: Decent brand at a good price when on offer
Disadvantages: Not as good as bounty
I know these kitchen towels are quite tacky and many will wonder what sort of a person would buy such a tacky branded item and I have to admit that its me. Nor have I bought just the one pack but stock up on them when they are on offer.
My daughter is completely high school musical obsessed and is determined to marry Troy Bolton and hsm 1, 2 and now 3 are playing pretty much on a loop on our TV until my daughter goes to bed so as soon as I saw these I popped them in the trolley. The first time I paid £1.99 for the two kitchen rolls which would normally have given me a nervous breakdown but I knew as a one off it would be worth it to see the look on her face.
When we unpacked the shopping she recognized the branding straight away as there were pictures of Troy, Gabriella, Chad and Sharpay on the outside and she started screeching high school musical at the top of her voice. Next morning as we prepared her break for school she insisted in taking in a sheet of kitchen roll with it and has continued to do so on a daily basis. Apparently she's the coolest girl in P1 for having this.
While I hadn't planned on buying it again there have been several offers in Tesco allowing me to get the double roll for 97p which is no more expensive than other kitchen rolls so I have stocked up. The towels are manufactured by Thirst Pockets which are a decent brand and one that I have been happy to buy in the past.
The rolls themselves are manufactured by Lotus and are 2 ply. The kitchen roll sheets only have the high school musical logo on them printed in the obligatory red and surrounded by stars in red and blue which is a little disappointing after the colourful packaging with pictures of the stars on it.
The marketing blurb around the thirst pocket products is that they have "shhhhlurp technology" which absorbs spills quickly and efficiently with 25% more absorbency than previously. The manufacturers claim that there are 56 sheets per roll and I will take their word for it as I have no intention of unrolling and checking.
As for quality well Thirst Pockets are marketed as the number two brand in the kitchen roll market, which I presume is just behind Bounty. They are not as thick as bounty and would not withstand the scrubbing that Bounty does, but be honest how often do you scrub the boards with bounty. It certainly doesn't fall apart or rip when wet the way some of the value brands do which are pretty much the same price.
Mostly kitchen roll is used for shelling eggs onto to keep the mess together, blowing the odd nose, drying hands and mopping up little spills. In my early years I occasionally used it to strain a bottle of wine when I couldn't get the cork out and ended up with lots of little bits of cork in the bottle but we'll gloss over that for now.
While I presume that only those with daughters under the age of 11 would be tempted to buy this I have to say that for 97p and the fact that its perfectly capable of mopping up spills and drying hands it's a good value and a decent product. The fact that it makes my daughter smile when she uses it is an added bonus.
Summary: A must if you have a hsm fan in the house
