    Howdy folks...

    When you open up your tin, do you see intact flakes of more of a broken flake?
    My experience - broken flake, unless them flaked break up easily in transportation.

    A little bit of both, however it doesn't matter, you gotta crumble it up anyway to put in the pipe. I'm a big fan of Bengal Slices it's approaching a spot as a top smoke for me.

    There are 10 types of people in this world, those who understand binary, and those who don't.

    The dozen or so tins I've gone through so far have three or 4 large thick slices. There is sometimes a bit of crumble in the tin as well.

    From my memory it is more of a crumble cake than actual slices.

    And little Sir John and the nut brown bowl proved the strongest man at last

    Mostly slices but edges fallen off much more than other flakes.

    This latest batch has been two large, tin-sized slices--mostly intact--with another half of a slice added. Fusilier's Ration, OTOH, has been more like Plum Pudding--lots of broken slices.

    Since we're talking Bengal Slices and Plum Pudding, check out the "Saved By the Bell" battle combo at P&C. Tin of both for $18 compared to $13 each separately.
    Good deal if you are in the market for both right now...

    I also highly recommend grabbing some Sutliff Virginia Slice while on sale. If you like Orlik Golden Sliced, you will like this too if not even more.
