So, I made an order to 4Noggins to add to the March bomb, and included two tins of Royal Yacht for me and some Choward's Lavender Tablets for a colleague. The campus mail deliverer came to my office today -- the package fell out of her cart and was run over by a car behind her. The bombing articles were fine, one tin of Royal Yacht dented, the Choward's reduced to powder, and the other tin. . . .



90% of tin was salvaged, however, so all is well.

I think we call that Krumble Kake. Perhaps you're onto a whole new flavor sensation.

It fluffed up once freed from the remains of the tin  Very Happy

I used an old-fashioned bottle opener (the oval end -- for you youngsters, what we had to use in the old days before twist-off bottle tops!) It still took some 3 or 4 minutes of prying. The seal on the other tin seems intact, but I'll likely have to use the same on it to open it, considering the minor damage to it.

I've always envisioned this happening to me one day, not to just my tobacco but, to anything in the mail. When I ship something they always ask me if it's fragile and I tell them, "well if the truck runs over it yes, it is fragile".   5) 
Glad you were able to salvage it sir, waste not want not.  Wink

That's very true, guys!  I'll just be smoking royal Yacht a bit longer before going on to try another.  No real loss there!

I still call it that, and only old men know what I'm talking about. Carry one on my keychain, actually. (None of my beer has twist-offs.  Wink )
