I know it's not smoking, but it's tobacco...

Anyone have any experiences with this old-fashioned tobacco form?
My dad picked it up in Germany. Good German restaraunts stateside sometimes offer it post-meal. Although I would be doubtful that many modern Germans actually do this habitually.

I can only imagine some perv google searching for back-alley deviant pr0n where the victims are killed, and then hitting this thread. Now I'm having flashbacks of the movie 8mm.
I guess this is my cue to pack up my work and go home...I'm getting nothing useful accomplished at this point...

I just looked into nasal snuff a couple weeks ago as a nicotine delivery system to help ween me off cigarettes should I decide to quit. I don't think I will actually quit, but I'm always looking for new and interesting habits!

Actually I've never tried it and don't mean to rain on anyone's habits/interests by being snotty. An english teacher in high school once showed me how to form a good nook on the top of your hand, near the wrist if you curl your thumb around just right.
Now that I think of it that sounds like something else one might find online.

Thanks for firming up my lifetime commtiment to taking my absinthe sans sucre, T!

You got a problem with that?

Also, baubel, I think I figured out how to make that little nook your talking about. It would be useful if I did snuff. Maybe.
Edit: Grammar helps make things legible.

I have thought of a couple of advantages of nasal snuff in the modern world, to wit:
1. It's not a smoke product, and thus won't be banned from the workplace, nor will the snufftaker (snuffler? snuffist? just what do you call these people?) find himself banished to winter sidewalks or corners of restaurants for indulging in his vice.
2. Unless you happen to sneeze brown powder on someone (unlikely), or leave residue on your nostril, no one will know you use it. Sniffing and sneezing can be excused as having a cold or allergy.
3. It's uncommon as a habit in this day and age (as is absinthe drinking, for that matter) and thus satisfies the inclinations of those who enjoy being outré. You could even role-play as a Regency fop, I suppose.
Anyway, I think I'll give it a try come payday. I'll let you all know how it works out.

It would be neat to have a bedazzled snuff box and float around like the Scarlett Pumpernickel.

Quite the contrary! I'm enjoying every minute!

About thirty-five years ago, there was a sugar-snuff that came in little tins. I think there was a variety of flavors, strawberry seems familiar. As I recall, the target audience was coke fiends, I guess. I just remember all my friends trying it and sneezing sugar-snot all over their shirt fronts. It was a great way to impress the young ladies.
oh 5th grade...

Sad to say, I experienced no tobacco effect from any of the snuffs. A friend said that the effect is subtle; apparently it's so subtle that I can't even detect it. The menthol and lemon snuffs seemed to have more of an effect than the clove, but that may have been from the flavorings rather than the tobacco. The clove snuff was my favorite (are there any clove liquors or absinthes that use clove as an ingredient? I'd love to try some!), but for all the effect I got I might have been sniffing pure clove spice.
Ah, well. Maybe a pipe or some pipe tobacco cigars would be better, after all.

Cökesnuff was the name of it. Jasmine was my favorite.

Clove, huh? Thirty-five years ago, I had a snuff habit big time. Back then, there was a brand known as Doctor Rumney's Mentholyptus that I used a lot. I'm glad I kicked, it's a disgusting habit, but I still have a hankering for it every now & then, no thanks to you, Bob!
I purchased three McChrystal's snuffs: menthol, clove, and lemon...

Everybody's least favorite term of endearment.

Snuff? Aw, no thank you. No secondaries!
I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.
