This just popped up in my feed on Youtube (darn those sneaky algorithms). Found it pretty interesting.

If you're worried that modern snuff isn't made under hygienic conditions...good. You should be.

Thanks Brian,

That video was priceless!
Next time I load snuff into one of my bottles, I'll be thinking of that grinding machinery in Kendle (BTW, it's a beautiful spot - the hiking capital of England).

Hi Brian

Interesting video!

I found that snuff taking is still quite popular in Europe. There is even an annual snuff taking contest that I saw online, but the whole scent was quite messy!

Regards.

I really enjoyed the video as well, but I buy Benson & Hedges Snuff.
And I hate Kendall Mint Cake. Which is what Kendall is famous for...
But the Lake District is very beautiful.
Best,
Joey
