When I was in elementary, middle and in high school (secretly) there was nothing that brought me pleasure more than Valu-Packs of cereal and potato chips. As good as the larger versions of both foods were, there was something cool about eating them out of a smaller version. Not only did I feel closer to the midgets, but I knew that at any time I could break out this snack, and down it in one sitting. The larger versions didn't really afford you that option unless you were just an obese child, which I was not.

In college, the mini potato chip bags seemed to disappear, but the mini cereal boxes were alive and well. I can remember many times while I was in the cafeteria at THE Hampton University when a mini box of cereal or two or three would accidentally find its way into my knapsack, despite my efforts to keep them out. At that point, I would have no choice but to eat them when I got back to my dorm room, and then the memories of younger days would kick in, and my overwhelming hunger would subside for a good 10-15 minutes or so.

Value packs and I haven't really had a relationship since college. I see them in the grocery store, but I always talk my way out of purchasing them, because they no longer look very filling. And now everything is value-packed from cookies, to juice boxes, to....



Now when I first saw this yesterday in the drug store, I immediately knew I had to get a picture of this. The purchase of KY warming jelly is not that big of a deal at all. Some people prefer life's natural lube, other prefer a little slippery assistance when they do their thing. Other people find themselves trying to enter places that simply can't be conquered without a substantial amount of KY..who am I to judge? But what I DON'T understand is why KY has now been valuepacked. I mean do you wake up and decide that one day you want the purple stuff, but that night, its a orange liquid kind of night? I don't get it..however, how cool of a gift would this be come office Christmas gift swap time????

i guess like the value pack of cereal, u may want a different lube for different occasions.

Feeling randy, use the warming..feeling rough use the slippery when wet. *shrugs*

Different strokes, for different folks (literally and figuratively)

it's always fun to experiment with something new.

i think its more of a variety pack than value pack. maybe k-y wants to give you a chance to dabble in all the flavors until you select one?

anyway stay out of the feminine hygiene aisle. you are not quite mature enough.

um, i think it's a great idea. When i think of a value pack, I think of smaller, sample-sized products that will allow me to well, sample, and find out which product I prefer over the others. So what better way to find the absolute best KY for you and your partner(s). And who knows, maybe you can't decide...it's good to have all these options in your nightstand drawer.

all of you are freak nasties! lol

I agree with chubbs, sampler platters allow you to sample the menu before you decide on a favorite so why can't it work for KY...

and I double dog dare you to give that as a office Christmas gift. hahahahahahahaa

ahhh the wild and wonderful world of "personal products". Always interesting, sometimes embarrassing. i'd love to be a fly on some cashier's register.

But yo, were they different scents flavors or something? I'm thinking how many varieties of K-Y does one need? Maybe i should go to CVS and er...uh investigate for myself.

I like the office party idea.

And you KNOW the woman you share the office with would probably get it. Now THAT would be funny. That would pretty much kill all the hymn humming for good.
