I bought one bag to try at my local store. This charcoal is in a paper bag, the last WG I bought was in a Tyvek bag, but that was last year so I have no idea which is the newer packaging. The bags at my store look like they had been crumpled a bit and felt like there was a lot of small pieces in there, but it is hard to tell without opening it. That is the only reason I didn't buy more. I am going to open it up soon and dump it out to look. The WG I have bought in the past has big pieces and very little of the fine chips and dust. I would be happy if this is medium sized chunks. My only fear is to buy a bunch of it and find bags that have been crushed and loaded with small pieces and dust. For some reason I think that Ocean State buys closeouts, etc, but I may be wrong. I know that even if you buy a pallet from WG and pick it up yourself it still not close to $10 bag.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
