    Same here, I find that they don't last as long as the bottles with the black long nozzle and screw in cap.

    My first batch of bottle that I bought was chubby gorilla. The plastic on one side of the bottle was thicker than the other side, then when you squeeze them it bends and dents, so only good for one mix, then throw away. Next batch I bought different make, think Unicorn, at least all side are same thickness. Havent had spillage problems yet, maybe I dont squeeze hard enough

    Some of the dips in papgooi, come in those, just smaller bottles, but they sometimes leak if they lying on their side, especially when its hot

    Why does no one in SA stock those HDPE chubby's? They look cool. Don't really wanna order a bunch from overseas and hope that SAPO don't mess up.

    SAPO did mess it up. I waited 3 months for those bottles, but worth the wait. They're awesome!

    I like the bottles that Opus use, they are just perfect in every way. I consume a lot of their Glitch, so always have their 50ml empty bottles that I clean and de-label.

    @CaliGuy How do you get the labels off? I've soaked bottles in warm water but those labels just don't come off!

    They are a metallic like label. I just pull them off slowly. Never had any issues doing it this way but on stubborn stickers I have always had great success using the wife’s hairdryer.

    @CaliGuy I wish everyone used those kinds of labels! The paper ones are difficult, if not impossible, to remove.

    I only use the black Gorilla bottles for DIY and I've never had a problem, maybe they're different to the commercial juice bottles? I have had a commercial juice Gorilla bottle pop it's top on my mod in the past.

    I love my gorilla bottles. For labels, use WD40 (spookpis). Removes any label easy.

    @Hooked I use Doom. I soak the bottle in water until the label is soft, then I remove most of the label and spray the bottle at close range with Doom. I then rub it with a paper towel and wash.

    I use coconut oil to remove the stickiness and works very well, cheaper too.

    Nice tip! For glass bottles, I use boiling water inside it and it comes off so easily.
