This post definitely belongs in the "Other Forms of Tobacco" section of the 'house. I thought I was ordering nasal snuff, but now I think that's Maka NEFFA Ifrikia. Can anyone confirm this? The nasal snuff is not mentholated, I am hoping.
Anyway, after a bit of disappointment--or wth?--upon opening a very heavy tin to find a small, gray, flattened hockey puck apparently made of clay, I did some searching here and on the net, but couldn't find a lot. This must be makla. Taking a piece to bake, I saw that its texture is more like septic tank solids. Considering that, it didn't smell bad. I baked a small prilla for the upper lip. Despite the appearance of decaying organic waste, it didn't taste bad and the flavor was not strong. I spent a few more minutes trying to figure out if I need to spit. By that time I was fully nicotine saturated and dumped the prilla. For a product that's 1/3 tobacco, it is packed with nicotine! It made a solid pellet without runs or floaters, which makes sense, as 2/3 of the product is "texture." I'm ok with my mistake, as this is certainly different and I like novel experiences,. I'd like to know which one is the snuff and if I need to spit this stuff, though.
