I was in a tobacconist in London recently and noticed a small box containing Toque snuff - no chance of missing the distinctive yellow labels - but the snuff was in small tubes. A bit like very small F&T tins but with the yellow wrapper and a brown plastic lid. Unfortunately I was in a hell of a rush so did not have time to ask the staff about them.
Is this the way that Toque snuff was originally packaged? If so how long ago was that and would the snuff in those containers still be okay? I ask as I will be in the vicinity of that tobacconist during the week and they looked like a very convenient way to carry some snuff. But I presume that Toque stopped using them for a reason and if the reason was that the snuff went off then there is no point in me picking any up.
Any advice / comments would be welcomed.
