    Hi @Vaya... It has something to do with punctuation cutting off the rest of the message. Sorry I don't know more, it doesn't affect all devices so it never happened to me. Starting the same thread multiple times doesn't help!
    Maybe type out the whole post on word or something then copy /paste it until you get it right. At least you don't have to keep retyping the whole thing over and over.

    @Vaya, dont use the apostrophe.

    Also any symbol will cut a sentence dead.  I'm dying to read your post.

  • Hey all. Thanks for the information regarding punctuation. I will do my best to avoid them because my phone autocorrects it! Anyway, ever since trying Chancellor, Glacier and Schmalzler I have been dying for the release of Otto snuffs in economy bags. Inadvertently I discovered they had been released and bought 50g each of CM, Glacier and Schmalzler and 100g of Chancellor. Im THRILLED to say the least, thank you Roderick!

    I have been storing each in 4 ounce mason jars in a cupboard. Does anyone have any information or tips on storing snuff of this type, oiled snuffs? While I believe Uncle Squinty has said that mentholated snuffs are more resistant to spoilage, im unsure of the shelf-life of its Schmalzler. Or other Schmalzlers.
  • Additionally, I felt like there may have been some menthol transfer from the 50g bags of a Glacier, Chancellor and CM to the 50g bag of Schmalzler that was in the same package. Has anyone had this happen before? It was not necessarily unpleasant, but i did sort of wish the menthol would dissipate from the Schmalzler bag after some time, but no such luck LOL :P

    Yes there will be cross contamination of flavours during shipping if you order flavoured snuff in ecobags, only way to avoid this is to only order 1 ecobag at a time. Dont have this problem when ordering only plain snuffs because plain snuffs dont have any flavouring that can transfer to the other snuffs.
  • I learned my lesson, ordering economy bag of USA W&H and a tin of Natural Toast. NT was badly contaminated with the sweet W&H flavour. Mind you, it penetrated into the tin! The sweet flavour has dissipated only halfway through the tin.

    It was hard to resist the temptation, but I ditched the idea of using "10 for 9" sample selection for the very same reason. "6 for 5" might be safe to go with the plain/almost plain selection (Natural Toast, Plain, Quit, Peanut Butter and Bourbon).
  • Good advice here.

    @Roderick is there any chance that you could give us the option of the bulk snuffs being packed in heavy zipper bags, what are sometimes referred to as smelly proof bags? Maybe just add a small charge to the bill?
  • I'll look into that right away.
  • Great! :)
  • Thanks for the feedback, advice and discussion, all :)

    @Roderick, thank you for being open to the feedback and solid suggestions put forth by some of our peers in here. Ive always found the real time involvement and investment snuffmakers take in their products and customers to be paramount in the collaborative culture of snuff taking. One of the many reasons I felt so attracted to becoming part of the SnuffHouse community!

    I want to reiterate how happy I am that the Otto line has been made available in economy bags, because each product is worthy of being procured in large quantities !

    For the record, were Berwick Brown or Spanish Gem made in the oiled, flue cured Germanic style that Otto products espouse, I would be the happiest snuff taker on this rotating rocky orb we call home. Just saying... ;)
