I have been researching new snuff choices and came across Swastik Chaap Snuff. It is cheap as hell and sounds interesting. I was just looking for some input before I drop any money on it.


  • ask Shaman..he knows everything..

    Will do. Good lookin out!!!
  • The Swastik Chaap snuff is a simple tobacco flavored snuff with the most subtle menthol you could have in a mentholated snuff. Doesn't give a menthol rebound to me, since its too slight. A decent enough snuff, but nothing wow about it. Good if you like plain tobacco snuff.
  • I was under the assumption that it was purposed for the lip?
    What is dirt cheap? I see it on eBay @ 9.99$ free shipping. Also options to make offer.
  • Well, in India it is reasonable I would say. I am having it right now :) $9.99 is expensive for it IMO- I can see an online site selling it for $20 for 10 x 50 gram packs 
  • @newbiesnuffer what website was it? Do they sell and ship to the U.S.? Also do you know any other place to get TPS other than hooka1.
  • - I didn't find any other site for TPS, but I'll let you know if I do find it. Cheers.
  • It is a decent snuff, G'Day

    If It Ain't Broke Don't Fix It!
  • Necromancing threads. I enjoy it.  I think it fried in Ghee. similar to a Madras except with light menthol. Quite fine but not to difficult to use. Nice little sting to it.  Economical, comes bagged in a cardboard box.

  • A other possible resource but how's one to get in contact??
  • There is a contact page on the site, nicmizer. Not sure if they would sell direct retail, though.
  • Just tried to contact and got "Error 404" response

    @nicmizer you could try snail mail.  Looks like the web page is broken. May not even be in business. And payment smells fishy.

    @Nebiesnuffer Did make contact with Nishant Dholakia.
    Partner - M/s R.Z.Dholakia.
    Willing to possibly supply but have some questions that I can't say I quite feel qualified to answer.
    Maybe @MrSnuff can help out here.
  • @nicmizer - Wonder what those questions really are. Shoot away and I'll try and see if I can get you an answer. Of course, @MrSnuff can answer better perhaps.
  • How did you discover our product?

    Where have you previously sourced it from?

    Where do you require it and how much quantity is it that you require?

    This is what he asked me @Newbiesnuffer.
  • (a) Discovered product due to mentions on a public forum on snuff (and there is a youtube video by Uncle Squinty) 
    (b) Not sourced it earlier, hence inquiring now! Duh
    (c) Address; and quantity depends on how many people are willing to buy and how much :) 
  • Well sounds like you have your ducks in a row. Think you should take over now that I got the ball rolling as I didn't bring the subject up any way. Really think @MrSnuff is the one to get in touch with him as I do believe it is one of his partner.
    Pretty sure that several members here would have to show a interest in the products to become available from Mr Snuff.
    I don't have a license to buy or sell tobacco products and pretty much think you would have to for the ability to obtain any of their products. Also don't think they would bother as the quantity I would need wouldn't meet their minimum purchase.
    Anyway, mabe this is possibly possible.
  • @nicmizer - Just helping. :) I dont have access to the foreign brands of snuffs which I so much want to try, and hence can empathize when someone doesn't get what they want. 
  • All the effort was not for what I need at all. Thought was just information for all and semi off the topic info for member Shawn622.
  • swastik chaap snuff is a copy of 'sparrow blue' snuff by Dholakia 
  • bobbob Member
    I looked at the page and the last name of the founder is also Dholakia. I wonder if that's a Wilson's type situation. Also their plain snuffs look interesting. 
  • ya similar situaton i think. But gotta give it to dholakia tobacco as according to my knowledge they were the first ones In the business. I would hands down go with experience in making snuff thats assurances of quality for me.
