I love Coast Original Soap
Disclosure: If I'm not making money through affiliate links on the post you're currently reading, it's an oversight on my part and will be corrected soon.
I've been a loyal user of Coast Original Soap since the late 70's. It was a shock to me when the Dial Corp took it off the shelves and replaced it with their new Coast Pacific Force scent. I gobbled up every bit of the Original that I could find and basically tapped out all of the availability at internet retailers.
I now go to great lengths to find it and pray that my now 250+ bar stash will never run out.
What's great about the Internet is that it enables people like me to find others in the same boat.
Thank you John Grove for reading my post on ABestWeb and hooking me up with 50 more bars!
And so I ask… Is Coast your guilty pleasure and what lengths do you go through to get it?

The new coast has a good smell to it, but those bars lol. Milking customers. Still what are you going to do? It’s never going back to those big full great lathering bars 🙁
Coast soap is not the same anymore. It doesn’t lather up like it did.
I grew up using coast and it’s not the same.
I just found a bunch of the old coast at bed bath and beyond for a mere $2.47 for a set of 3 bars. amazing find so i bought 60 bars..yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have been searching high and low for the original coast soap to no avail…it was packaged in soft packaging instead of the boxes it is in now. Also it was striped with blue and white and now its a solid blue color. It burns me skin so i think the formula has changed too. Feels like acid on my skin so i threw it all away…
I am 74 years old and have loved Coast soap since its berginning. I will grudgingly use the new product but it does not thrill like the original. I don't use social media and can only communicate with you this way. Now it is even difficult to find the watered down Coast. Do you have any suggestions? How do I buy some?
Was looking for it. Coast was my favourite for decades. It came out in Oklahoma before south Texas and when I went up there I bought a ton and brought it down to Texas. I then lived overseas for several years and was just now looking for it on Amazon and was surprised that they don't make it anymore.
Why change a good thing? They don't advertise soap etc any more so no wonder no one knows it's missing.
Congratulations on finding some!
Hello Missy I trust all is well. I had watched your video a couple years ago and thought you would like to hear my story. I also have a love time love afair with Coast Deodorant soap and have been using it since the '70s. I live in Milton, Ontario, Canada where coast Original Scent has gone the way of the Dodo for several years. When I realized that supplies where deminishing here I when on a scavenger hunt and bought up all the bars that I could. That was at least 6 years ago. I have a friend who is a long haul trucker whom I had keeping an eye out for me in the U.S. who found me the odd package of bars in his travels but he also says that supplies have dissapeared. I opened my last bar in November and have been without for a while now.The good news is that yesterday my Girlfriend was shopping at a major grocery store in our area and came across a sale bin of 3 Bar Packages of "Coast Classic Scent – The Eye Opener" clearance priced at $1.00 a package. She texted me asking if I wanted some and I told her that I wanted it all. So I am now the very proud owner of 84 – 3 packs, 252 Bars.
I found another listing for original coast and the sun spray scent on ebay;

I just noticed that High Ridge Brands (the current owner/maker of Coast Soap) has released a new scent: Coast Emerald Burst, The Eye Opener with Moisturizing Aloe in bars and body wash. Not sure if it will be anything like Coast Max w/Aloe, which I loved and was discontinued back in 2004 or so. Here’s a link to the product page on the High Ridge Brands website:
I placed an order for some on Drugstore.com – it doesn’t look like many retailers will be carrying it at the time. Now if we could just convince them to release SunSpray scent again!
I don’t know about new vs old Coast. I was a user of Ocean Fresh purchased at Walgreens in the US. The label said it was made in Canada. I loved it, but Walgreen stopped carrying it. I tried Coast, but the scent made me ill. Really wish I could find the Ocean Fresh bars again.
