not cooks matches

These are just ordinary length matches. Cooks matches are longer so you can light a gas hob without burning your fingers. Putting a recipe on the box doesnt transform these tiddlers into proper cooks matches.

something has changed for the worse

These have been my go to for over a decade, sadly no more. Quite often a match wont stay alight long enough, a few have snapped while trying to ignite the match (dangerous !!) Now on the hunt for my new go to but I fear that I may not find a suitable replacement, most on here have mediocre reviews.

They go out quickly

These are utter rubbish. You strike them, go to light whatever and they go out. To keep them alight you have to burn the match down quite a bit. I'm switching to Swan.

Now thin and weak

Have bought these for years but the latest box only has thin, weak matches which break on striking so I'm using twice as many. Will not purchase again, not like they used to be.

NOT cook\x27s matches

Tiny and useless matches that snap and splinter easily. These are NOT longer cook's matches, as they seem to ;lead the buyer to believe.

inferior quality now

I don't what has happened to these matches, but I will no longer be buying them. I agree with other review, half of them break, in half when trying to light them. Sometimes there is delay in it catching light and I have gone to light it again, so the flame ignites right by the box. All very dangerous.
