Last time I bought toothpicks, I noticed that the package design seemed to be at least thirty years out of date, and I liked it. My thought must have caused a psychic disturbance at the Penley toothpick company, because they’ve redesigned. Check this out.
They seem to have gone from the 60s straight to the 90s. Not an improvement. Also, I wonder how the word “count” got added to the box. Was “250 round toothpicks” unclear in focus groups? Did people expect .250 gauge toothpicks?
