From my understanding, you can only get the cherry jar Carmex in Canada. And even here it's not the easiest to find. Walmart and Shoppers Drug Mart don't have it, but Pharmasave and Rexall do. At least where I live.
I actually like this better than the original, and I love the original very much. The cherry is much more pleasant, much less minty. It also seems to be a bit more glossy than the original.
I know a lot of people find jar lip balm icky, but I always wash my hands before applying this. There's still the slimy finger afterward, but I still do prefer the jar to the stick lip balms.
