It must be your body telling you NO.

My uncles had me try snuff when I was a kid. It is not for me.

So, for those of us who are ready to take the leap and give snuff a try, what is the best way to get a hold of this stuff? The closest B&M that I know of that carries any is about 3 hours away, and I won't be out that way for at least another month.

For those who are in the know, what are the best online vendors to deal with (price, selection, etc.)?

Your local B&M likely won't have it unless it is leftover from before the pact act.

Wait...am I turned completely upside down on this? I thought PACT prevented the shipping of cigarettes/ryo/smokeless. Wouldn't that affect the online sale (domestically) of these products? Why does that affect B&Ms?

Someone else would be better suited to answer that one but it affected them some sorta how and made it so we have to order from overseas.

Okay so I put another order in that will be sitting in the cellar when I get back home. I think I am going to slowly build up a decent sized cellar of snuff for when the gov gets even more out of control with making sure Americans are their version of healthy. Still not sure why I can't snuff the more coarse SG Elmos Reserve. But, the new order is:
1 x Wilsons Crumbs of Comfort 450g
1 x Gawith Hoggarth Spartan 25g
1 x Gawith Hoggarth Sweet Cherry Brandy Small (twist chew)
1 x Gawith Hoggarth Jockey Club 10g
1 x Metal Snuff Spoon Silver
1 x FUBAR Snafu Medicated 30g (have heard nothing good about FUBAR snuffs but figure it should be given a fair try by me too)

FDA, not the PACT act. http://snuffhouse.org/discussion/3574/fda-regulation-and-snuff-in-the-u-s

Also picked up:
1 x Toque Chocolate 400g
1 x Samuel Gawith Elmo's Reserve 250g
1 x Wilsons Chocolate 5g
1 x Viking Blonde 25g
3 x Abraxas Dragun 140g
1 x 6 Photo Kailash 6g

I will cellar snuff just like my pipe tobaccy. I'd rather have it now while I can afford it and get it, than want it later.

Is it a definite upcoming piece of legislation you guys are socking up against, or is it a general precaution? I know smoking has a horrible reputation these days, but my impression is that pipe smoking (and snuff) is a very different animal than cigarette smoking. I'm still thinking of putting myself down as a non smoker on forms because they assume its cigarettes.

Though in the eyes of the lawmakers I suppose the difference is not relevant... facts just tend to get in the way.

For me it is all preventative, that and I like having my tobacco on hand when I want to smoke it and not having to wait on an order. That and it is nice looking at ten pounds of pipe tobacco, and will be nice to see ten pounds of snuff by the time I get back home.

Toque Bacon&Cheese is disgusting. De Kralingse Choco Latakia is good. Abraxas Dragun is good.

To be fair, Bacon&Cheese snuff does sound pretty disgusting, so at least its not misleading advertising Smile

No kidding Greyson, I did however have to give it a try. I found one I am really loving in Red Bull, it is strong and will clean your sinuses but it definitely is a pic me up and AWESOME. I have been trying to find Red Bull by the pound but apparently Poschl only has their little containers darn it all.

I have, as of late, also been thinking about giving snuff a try. Reading through this post was funny. You really jumped right in there. Glad you're enjoying it. The stuff seems cheap enough really that your long grocery lists really don't look that bad. I'll place an order here one of these days when I get around to it.

I'd definitely recommend the Sam Gawith Apricot and F&T Morlaix to start. Those both "taste" awesome and are easy to use.

I got my first snuff order in last week. I only ordered $20 worth, but I think its going to last me forever.

I got:
Gawith Apricot
Gawith KB Original
Gawith Menthol
Poeschl Loewen-Prise
Die Kralingen Gingerbread (for the holiday season)

I'm not sure what I think about snuff. It will never replace pipes or cigars, but I suppose it has a minor role to play. Kinda gross too when I think about it. Lots of boogers..... No

Which Gawith did you get Ocelot, Sam or Hoggarth? Personally I like Sam snuff better so far. I figured I'd better order my big purchase soon so I did it today. I think I have enough to last the rest of my life now. Something like 6 pounds or so.

Just giving this a little nudge, hoping that someone "in the know" can shed some light on this for me.

The PACT act is a US law. It affects US vendors. Mr Snuff is based in Ireland. Add to that there are treaties between the US and Great Briton that require the USPS to deliver anything that can be legally mailed in the UK.

The FDA required a full disclosure of ingredients for various tobacco products to be imported for sale in the US as well as some other requirements. As snuff vendors guard the recipes they are very reluctant to do so. Toque has been willing to jump through the hoops. Apparently Wilson's is willing to jump through some of the hoops and recently an importer has been willing to jump through the rest of them.

There are some UK vendors that will not do any tobacco business with US customers. But that is because of pressure from credit card processors. Same thing we have seen here with Pipe tobacco stores losing their processors temporarily.

This will completely go politics if it keeps going which is best in the RR. You are right about the PACT act, I just have worries about my tobacco like I have worries about my guns, and it is already proving to be a valid worry.

Welp I needed a new order so from:

Lil Brown Smoke Shop I got:
6 packs of Oliver Twist Original
2 pack of Oliver Twist Sunberry

From Mr. Snuff I got a small order:
Abraxas Café 11 15g
Abraxas FireDrac 15g
Bernard Magic Moments Black 10g
Paul Gotard Gooseberry Snuff Bottle 8g
Paul Gotard Rhubarb Snuff Bottle 8g
Samuel Gawith Apricot 25g
Oliver Twist Royal Tobacco Bits 1 pack
Bernard Minifranzl Steinzeug 10g (It's just a small snuff jar that was really cool)
Mr.Snuff Snuff Box

I think with what I brought that this order will get me through with snuff for this deployment, although I will have to order more Oliver Twist bits in about a month. That Paul Gotard Gooseberry is really becoming more and more awesome the more I use it. Oh if you are getting into snuff and have yet to check out the "Snuff Taker's Ephemeris" it is a darn cool little magazine that comes out a few times a year. http://www.stephemeris.com/ I think I need to order issue number 7 myself in fact.

Oh, Ocelot, how'd you like the Gingerbread snuff? I tried it but man is it a strong smell to be up my nose constantly. How did it treat you?
