    Did a crack in the FDA door just appear? It was just about a year ago, when P&C shuttered many of the Russ' Monthly Blends. Now, there's a new one, just announced today. Is there hope yet for other new blends? Naturally, my heart beats fast for Lane to continue on with the other Edgeworth clones, so this really caught my attention. Or, is it meaningless?

    The only clouds I punch through today, come from my pipe!

    To misquote The Ramones, "The FDA took my Baccy away..."

    The FDA hasn't done anything yet regarding pipe tobacco. Anything dropped to date was simply voluntary.

    Incorrect.
    The FDA has stopped the introduction of new blends without their approval. The word “new”, however, is relative. Lots of wiggle room there. For example, if a manufacturer has registered a blend that is 100% Virginia, then they can put out “new” blends by using different strains and vintages of Virginia, ala “Christmas Cheer”.

    I have no actual insight on this specific blend, though.

    Fudge Cake was something that we sold in our (former) brick & mortar store, so since it was sold previously, we were able to bring it back.

    I look forward to trying Fudge Cake!
    I REALLY wish you would bring back Scotty's VR blend!

    I'm not a big aromatic guy, and when I smoke 'em, I go for whiskey, rum, and liqueurs. But I greatly enjoy Russ's blends, so if I were a chocolate aro smoker, I'd grab some ounces of this.

    Thanks, Russ. Still hoping for more FDA sense. (sorry for the oxymoron). I'll probably sample the the Fudge Cake at some point, since it sounds like it's tobacco forward.
