I can’t find Amish Brand or Havana Blossom anywhere anymore.

Guess I remain retired. :lol:
I think HB is still produced.

However …

Amish Brand was made by Domestic Tobacco, who, I believe, also owned the House of Windsor label.

So, doing the math … Image
I don't know about that as it's still available from several wholesalers, which would indicate it was probably sold on.

I don't need 144 units, though.

My wife would tell you I don't need one unit!

I just ordered a couple of sleeves of General Snus (mint white and wintergreen white).

I agree with the most disgusting. I typically only chew tobacco when I'm outside and alone. I try to avoid the use of bottles to contain the by products.
I enjoyed some Stoker's Mint while I was cutting up a fallen tree today.

Had it. Good stuff, but I still love the super long cut of Stoker's.

I've been enjoying snus for a few years now. It's a work-day thing. Maybe four portions a day. I don't often feel an urge to snus at home.

I've been using Camel snus, which is available at local convenience stores for $8/tin of 15 pouches.... That's about 53 cents per portion.

I decided to stock up on some General snus -- mail order, direct from Sweden. Even with the outrageous shipping ($33), it's still a lot cheaper per portion (21 cents).

Package arrived today. I just had to give it try.

The General has more nic-kick than the Camel, but still pleasant and tolerable. I'm gonna be happy with this!

We have the latter here. I've tried it. It was dry as a bone and not appealing.

You know, up until this very point, I considered you a fount of wisdom.

Havana Blossom is dry, yes, but unappealing?

You poor thing, raised up on sweet sweet girly chew. Image
Haha. There was a shop here that carried several different tobacco twists and kept them in the humidor. They had one that was straight unsweetened tobacco. It was good stuff that didn't crunch when you bit into it. I could give Havana Blossom another shot after a week in my back pocket.

Nah. I'm teasing. If you don't like it, why train yourself to like it?

I cannot find Mail Pouch or Beechnut at all anymore around here and that was the great divide when I was a kid in the early 80's.

Strange that I've become nostalgic about the single most disgusting way of consuming tobacco known to man. :D
I chew Beechnut in Highschool when I couldn’t smoke cigarettes. Good stuff. When I’m out in the field with the guard I’ll dip Cope wintergreen or chew Redman.

Stokers is good stuff. A buddy of mine got me going on that a couple summers ago. Got me through a month of BS at Fort Hood.

I got a pouch of Havana Blossom on my way home. It was of good moisture level. It's much better than my last go at this stuff. At $7 a pouch it better be premium.

I've never dipped, chewed, or snuffed in my life.

Smoking a pipe is hard enough on the teeth, I'm squeamish to think about what dipping or chewing would do.

(Though on the flip side, smoking is probably harder on the lungs, so pick your poison, I guess).

I don't like to deal with the mess and spitting. Not to mention the overdose of nicotine.

But this little packets of snus under my upper lip.... those are nice.

My first day with the General was very good. Those Swedes know how to do tobacco.

I sure did! It was black and grey; not red and black though. I love running a chainsaw. They are wonderful tools! Felling trees is an art. You have to analyze the situation and develop plans A, B, and C before making the first cut. Every cut must be thought out. The tree is powerful. It is full of potential energy. You have to use that potential energy to your advantage to make it do what you want it to.
The smell of sawdust mixed with 2 cycle exhaust is unparalleled.

If I had no fear of flying monkeys, I might just tease you about your plaid fetish.

Seems like every time I've met you, you were wearing a plaid flannel shirt or a plaid woolen kilt.
