Thread: Corn Huskers Discontinued?

  1. #1

    Default Corn Huskers Discontinued?

    In this thread, Manoover mentions that his pharmicist said Corn Huskers was discontinued:

    I checked the Mfg website - Johnson & Johnson - but couldn't find anything about Corn Huskers on the site.

    However, I have noticed my local drug store - Bartell's Drug - has been out of Corn Huskers AND has even removed the shelf tag.

    Anyone have some facts on this topic?

    I have seen similar comments on other websites as well but never asked anyone at a local store to confirm. I had mentioned the rumor in another threat and was told that it was still readily available in Texas.

    I was lucky enough to pick up 3 bottles at my local Wally World after the shelf had been empty for weeks and that should last me for a long time. Keep your eyes open on your travels -- you might just get lucky.

    How can it "go bad"?

    Well, I guess it's time to go back to the Bag Balm.

    I dunno, but it sat on my countertop for the good part of 2 years, and when i went to use it one day the smell was so horrible i washed my hands and face right away and threw the bottle in the trash.

    If you use Corn Huskers regularly, it works. I've used it even on my feet and elbows and nothing works better. As far as Johnson & Johnson Consumer Products I read somewhere they had had some production problems on Tylenol which they corrected. Maybe they are cleaning up operations at other plants as well. I hope this is temporary.

    Corn Huskers is made by Pfizer, not J&J. Corn Huskers is a seasonal product for chapped hands - winter is winding down (though that is hard to believe in a lot of places). Doubt that Corn Huskers is discontinued.

    J&J bought Pfizer Consumer Products a couple of years ago.

    I tried, but I couldn't find any official statement from either company. I hope it stays in production, I finally perfected my homemade skin food.

    ...which was purchased in 2000 by Pfizer who in turn, sold off their consumer products division to J&J in 2006.

    everyone wanted a piece of the CHL!

    I stand corrected. My bottle says Pfizer on the side of it, which is why I said Pfizer made it.

    I don't know if it's been discontinued, but I recently ran out of the stuff. I couldn't find it at any B&M retailer, so I looked on eBay. There was the profiteering normally seen with discontinued products like AV Ice Balm, &c. Drugstore.com and Hocks.com showed 'out of stock'.

    $4 bottles were typically offered at $15~$18 on the bay, some at even higher prices. I managed to snag two bottles at $7 + $4 shipping. It was a BIN and had the seller been aware of the shortage, I'm sure the price would have been much higher.

    I use CHL as a pre-shave; a small dot suffices, so a bottle lasts a couple of years. Perhaps the supply will be replenished, but I'm not holding my breath. It is a unique product.

    Guys used to swear this stuff was identical (scent notwithstanding, of course) to Trumpers skin food. Only reason i never tried it is its cost is about the same as TSF this side 'o pond. Always a sad day when anything evening vaguely wetshaving related becomes discontinued. Lets say a little prayer for its continued production.

    Default Corn Huskers Shortage

    I called the number on the side of the bottle, got transferred a few times and was finally told they are still making it, they are just having a shortage. So don't go paying $20 a bottle for it, I found it for $3.99 a bottle with a few Google search minutes...

    I have stock piled a few bottles that I could find. just in case. Hopefully, it is still being made.
