I just cant imagine how that wouldn't burn... Don't think I could bring myself to do it.

It's actually very simple, once you learn not to sniff deeply and take the snuff into the throat. A bit of it on your thumbnail and hold it to your nostril and inhale normally, and it's done. The menthol and the lemon snuffs caused a bit more sneezing than the clove snuff, which didn't cause sneezing at all once I learned the trick. As I said, though, the effect was negligible, so I guess I might try a pipe or pipe-tobacco cigar next.

This thread made me want a cigar, and I never smoke until evening.

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. :twitchsmile:

I remember Cökesnuff. There were a few other brands too. I loved the little psychedelic, 70s-style tins it came in—oh wait, I guess it was the 70s. There were also tobacco snuffs too. My favorites were the vanilla Cökesnuff and a licorice tobacco snuff. Go figure. I used to like the licorice papers, too.

Only a Welshman! :laf:

Ahem. ;)

edit: look what I found:

If I remember correctly, you didn't take the top off but twisted it to an opening. Those are the one's I had messed with. Briefly! ;)
Some folks may cringe each time I use the term "Booze" regarding these high quality drinks.
I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

Oh, shit, I remember those now. Yeah, they twisted to line up a hole where you could tap out a dose. Now how'd I know that?

I dunno.....perhaps the same way I did. I'm sure we read it somewhere. :)

Patchouli? C'mon, who'd want to sniff that? I bet that was more like "Achoo-li".

A little technological fix to a spiritual problem.

I was thinking along similar lines, except for all flavors. I can beat that on ridiculous cocaine-advertising products though:
