I swear by bounty paper towels and pay the extra $ because they have always been thick and absorbent - way better than competitive brands BUT the last shipment I received was different. These towels are not as thick and absorbent. What used to take 1 towel now takes 2. Bounty is a 2-ply towel and now the layers are separating from each other - falling apart. Never had this problem before. Proctor & Gamble hope this was an isolated incident and you are not going the way of many other manufacturers - giving the customer less value/quality.
