Pencil Problems?!?!

 Ticonderoga use to be the gold standard in pencils!!! I LOVED them even if they were more expensive than other brands. However, over the past couple years I've noticed the quality going down hill.  At first I thought...maybe it is just a bad batch/box.  Then this year, I have several boxes from different stores and different parts of middle Tennessee.  I sharped them with two different electric sharpeners & three different hand held sharpeners.  The wood was mushy, the lead was broken up in side them, and some were off centered.  UGH!  I posted this on social media and found I was not the only one having this struggle.  Ticonderoga...COME ON!!! You all are who we go to....don't let us down!

  1. I feel the same way about Sharpie's lately. They just don't last.
