Costco’s best selling item is their Kirkland Signature Bath Tissue but we’ve actually never purchased it because we prefer Charmin as they’re softer and thicker. Maybe Costco realizes that some of their customers are reluctant to switch because of this and they’ve now come out with a “softer and thicker than ever!” Kirkland Signature Ultra Soft Bath Tissue!
Since they made that claim, we decided to buy a pack and try them out.
Well, from our very non-scientific and very subjective opinion, the tissues are thicker but we feel that Charmin is still softer. Feel free to disagree 🙂
But, I think we’re ok with the compromise and may continue to purchase this tissue from now on. It is cheaper and we won’t have to wait for an instant rebate to purchase it.
There are 30 rolls in a pack with 231 sheets/roll and 866.2 sq feet total.
Sheets are 4.5″ x 4″ wide.
The Kirkland Signature Ultra Soft Bath Tissue is price at $14.99.
Unit price is 1.7 cents/sq foot (Charmin is currently 2.4 cents/sq ft without rebate, and 2.2 cents/sq ft with rebate).
Item number 692961.
Inventory and pricing at your store will vary and are subject to change at any time.

You can kinda see that the Kirkland tissue on the right is thicker as the dark countertop is not as visible…
