Snuff
« on: Aug 06, 2012, 12:32 »
I'm thinking of changing snuff brand and am currently trying out a Swedish brand called Löwen-Prise. It's growing on me I must admit and could well end up being my new favourite.
 
Any of you good people into snuff ? Which brand would you recommend and how many times a day to you snuff ?

 :(

I asked the same question on a football forum and was told Esther Ranzon tried to get it banned in the mid 1980s. I never knew that. It also seems you're right about it not being a very popular thing as so far I haven't heard from any other snuff users. Though someone did reply and said there is an old fella down his local who uses it from time to time. I get the impression it might be difficult to get hold of when I return to the NE on Friday.

Maybe it will make a comeback one day. I'd like that.

Yes, tried skrå (chewing tobacco) once but didn't like it at all. I've used snus (snuff) on and off for a few years but it does appear to be something not many people in the NE get up to these days. I know it's a bit old-fashioned but so is smoking the pipe and I've been doing that for twenty years, too. With so many other things being Retro-Chic these days I'm a bit surprised to find out that Snuff isn't one of them.

I'll need to remember to put some into my bag before Friday.

Never snuffed (?) or smoked myself, so don't really know, but I think those gum pouches were implicated in high levels of mouth cancer, so that may explain why they're not widely consumed.

Yes that's right they were called bandits and a young kid got mouth cancer which is when Esther rantzen and the That's Life team launched a campaign to ban them which succeeded.

You can buy Snuff i the indoor Market in Durham I think, there is a tobacconist in there. It's called durham Pipe and tobacco.

Durham indoor market is the place to go

I had a go with snuff when I was a kid and those tobacco teabags  Skoal bandits  sure there was another company was it an Aussie thing  when we got hooked on cheap Aussie BBC TV ? 

Prisoner cell block H  and Crocodile Dundee ?

As a reformed non smoker for 20 years with teeth and gums to remind me of that evil past ..   I still enjoy the smell and that baccy shop is a must sniff

I miss my sweetcorn pipe and a puff of clan     NEVER GO BACK THOUGH !!
