The handle on these was a piece of tape, it maybe saved a penny on each bottle.

Which is about $2 million against an annual revenue of $36 million. Pennies add up.

Absolutely no way it cost anywhere near a penny per bottle

Im sure that's way above what it cost, but even at that price, it is insignificant enough that they wouldn't bother changing prices.

Yea but what's the cost of production for just 1 bottle? 20 cents? If my random guess is correct that's a 5% cheaper product

These bottles cost about $1.50 near me. They could lower the price if they wanted to. But they sell very well at this price.

I find these at the dollar store all the time for $1.09, I still pass on it as my favorite water is “Niagara” which is the same water Costco Kirkland uses and Smart and Final “First St” water, and they have actual plastic handle that’s attached to the neck.

I mean... Office Space did it. I bet some company IT guy is having a blast on the beach complaining that he ordered a Mai Tai and NO SALT on the Margarita :)
