I had tried this product in a different flavor before, and was curious to try something new. I also wanted to involve my husband in the "shopping" process. This handy assortment is a great way to test out several flavors and decide which one suits us best... I've found that each packet lasts awhile and can easily rest against the tissue box on the bedside table without tipping or making a mess - or can be stashed back in its original box while trying out a different one. This would make a great (private) "stocking stuffer" for that special someone and you!
