    If anybody's looking, I went by the local WinCo, which usually stocks Williams. They had about 15 pucks still on the shelf and were clearing them out for 98 cents. I bought a couple but they may have to sit for 15 or 20 years until they lose some of that scent. :)

    The last time I bought Williams, it was .98 at Safeway. That was a few years ago. Not on sale.

    Around here it's been .99 for as long as I can remember.

    Wonder if any other company will take over and keep it going?

    Hopefully, if that ever happens, it will be reformulated. They couldn't possibly make it a worse soap, imo.

    ...unless they dug out the old urban cowboy soap recipe...

    And I get it to work easily and get great lathers from it. Guess it's that old YMMV

    i liked and enjoyed using it for years before i stumbled across the wide world of different products in the last 5 years or so.it then became apparent what williams didn't deliver.especially when compared to it's vintage formulas.shame a limited edition original formula batch wasn't released to send it off.. or to create a new revival during the current resurgence of wet shaving..

    Here's the horrible secret they've been keeping from you...

    They discontinued it 10 years ago, and now they are finally running out of backstock.

    ...just kidding! :p

    Would that make Rise Superfoam a "backstock" of Rise Original?

    Course RS has almost run out-I only see them on Ebay or Amazon, and then only the travel sizes. Bye Bye, Backstock.

    Hembree Not as pretty smelling

    I stopped by the local Piggly Wiggly Saturday to pick up a few pucks. There was a place on the shelf but they were out. Oh well...I did not need any anyway.
