It's an extra product (well, 10 products) to deal with. This means
more stuff on the shelf, more products in the inventory system, more
labor to stuff pyramids into tubes, etc, etc.

By taking the single stash products out of production, they remove 10
different things they were keeping on the shelf. This sort of makes
everyone's life easier at the back end.

It just reduces the total work load on everyone in the buisness.
