I noticed that it looks like all the bottle labels are different in the photos. Why not create a zoomed region over the variety text on each so it can be read in the thumbnails? I always like to see an image of what to expect at my door when I shop online so I feel that just getting rid of the image would turn a lot of people off. There’s a lot of information carried by the image in this case such as the shape of the container, the container material, and a rough guess on the size that some people may find important.

Not to make assumptions either, but I’d guess the audience of this site may particularly value seeing exactly what they’re getting before ordering.
