Just so you know, I work for Bernat.
Bernat Super Value is exactly the same weight as Red Heart Super Saver. I use it all the time for blankets and kids stuff. It's softer than the RHSS, and it's a good sturdy workhorse yarn. Very durable.
As with ALL yarns, some colors will be softer than others. I think it has something to do with certain dyes. I find the lighter shades of yarn to be softer than the darker ones.
