The Charmin Curve

Yesterday I noticed for the first time that the perforated edge of the Charmin squares is curved.  Am I late to the game? Or is this a new feature?

They have been doing this for a year or so.  I found a post I did on another site from September 2020 for the ultra soft.  I was having difficulty getting it to tear properly.  

They seemed to be trying to fix a problem that didn't exist.  I have been avoiding Charmin the last 11 months since I don't know which products do this.

I recently got some Charmin as part of a WAGS deal, and I hope they don't have that 'crappy' wavy perforation

We always get our Charmin at Costco. It's a bit different than Charmin from regular stores. For starters, it has WIDER sheets (which I prefer). The curve requires a harder "tug" to get it to separate. The main reason I prefer the Costco version of Charmin is because it does not leave so much dusty residue in our bathrooms! 

I merely found the curve to be amusing.

@What-Shot  Oh, no - I just bought some Charmin Ultra Soft from Target today because it was part of their household bundle deal (buy $50 worth to get $15 GC) and they also had $0.25 DQ. I haven’t bought Charmin in a while, so the wavy ends are definitely news to me. Thanks for the heads-up!

No butts about it, we primarily use Charmin in my house.  I primarily bought it at CVS when they had spend $30 get $10 and they actually had Charmin and Bounty in stock (pre-Covid).  It is the brand favorite (I have no idea why).  I have not noted the wavy edges (all though I buy the essential).

I admit to being a Charmin snob but I was not aware of this change.  Then again as a household of one I don't go through TP very quickly.  I buy at Sam's so it has been months since I purchased any.  I'll be on the lookout next time.

I am thinking it is just on Charmin Ultra Soft. 

At one time, they said it was on select rolls of Ultra Soft, so I don't know if it is all the Ultra Soft now or not.
