For Pain/Fever "Have used product for 20/25 years love Goody’s and use daily. New on-the-go packs are terrible. Bought B/C but now they have on the go packs as well. Made in the same facility ??? Please bring back the waxed paper fold. Btw if you place powder under tongue u tase nothing. Goody’s, your spokesperson Richard Petty would not be happy with new pack. Please go back or offer both to consumers. Thank you."

For Pain/Fever "I have used Goody's for years just like all these other folks at least 20 years, I too, however, hate the new package not only is it hard to use but they really seem like they have less medicine than before. Please go back to the old packaging."

For Migraine "I have chronic migraines, so this is something I tend to use a lot, and I love it. The one complaint I see is about the packaging, honestly, I love it. I don't see any problem with it. I'm trying to figure out how all these people are somehow getting the powder on their face, and the only logical explanation I can come up with is they ate holding the package about two feet above their open mouth? Honestly, if you can drink out of a bottle, then you can use the new packaging. It's literally super easy."

For Pain/Fever "We have used Goody's in my family for as long as I can remember. The packages were perfect the way they were, easy to use and we had different ways to take them. BUT, the new To go pack is garbage! They were always to go packs. Please change them back ! BTW ....pretty old."

For Migraine "Have used Goodys powders for 40 plus years. I have complained to the manufacturer about the on-the-go packs and received a very matter of fact message that this is the way they decided to package now and have no thoughts of returning to the tried and true packaging. I guess they did not do very good testing before deciding this was a good for the consumer. They apparently do not want to hear the packaging complaints."

For Pain/Fever "I've used Goody's headache powder 28 yrs now and love the powder but the new packaging is horrible. What does come out gets flipped all over my face & down my throat trying to get it out of the package. Please go back to original or find another method to make ALL of it easily slip out of the package and on to your tongue."

For Pain/Fever "I’m 68 and have osteoarthritis. I’ve been using Goody’s powders for a long time to relieve joint pain. Goody’s powders work. But I also hate the new packaging. The old folding packets were much easier to open and use. Please bring them back."

For Migraine "Have used Goody's Extra Strength powders for almost 50 years but wish they would not have changed the packaging. Feel like I am wasting my money as the powder gets stuck in the bottom of the package. You can tear in half and still not get all of the powder out...NOT happy with the change.."

For Pain/Fever "Been taking Goody Powders for 30 plus years. Love it! Works great on my migraines. The new packaging (tube) sucks!!!! The product sticks in the bottom of the tube and if you keep trying to get it out the tube gets wet and then you end up throwing half of it away. Terrible idea to change the packaging. Will have to find another product now. Really bummed out."

For Pain/Fever "I have used goody's for over 30 years. Their effectiveness and ease of use has always been above average. I bought a 50 pack of Goodys. To my surprise there was new packaging on the powders. I thought it was awesome until I tried taking the goody's. The powder is hard to get out of the new tubes. It hangs in the bottom. Please consider changing it back to the folded over paper. Or come up with a way to get the powder to release more easily."

For Migraine "10........on product 2..... on new packet I am a long time (30 yr) customer of Goody's and am fully satisfied with the product but the NEW PACKAGE has got to GO!!!!!!!!!!!! I have tried several different ways to open them and take the powder but have not yet to be successful in doing so with out either dumping it on my face or not being able to get most of the powder out without a lot of fuss. I like the idea of the enclosed packet but it just not working."

For Pain/Fever "Love Goody Powders .. It's a 10'. But, I hate the new packaging it's a ZERO. Please go back to the original. I've tried 4-5 different ways to open it and not successful getting into the groove with it. I have PsA arthritis and this packaging just doesn't work for me. I really hope you will consider your customers needs. PLEASE!! Go back to the foldout. Thank you(~.~)"

For Pain/Fever "I always try to find Goody’s before I buy any other pain relievers. Works every time and works fast. Plus I really like the old School idea of powder packets. PM goodys works great at bedtime too."
