Let me start off by explaining what I mean by tin and can. Simply put a tin to me is what stuff like Squadron Leader comes in, the "traditional" or "old school" packaging. Compared to something like Frog Morton's or GL Pease. I absolutely love my McClelland's and GL Pease tobaccos, but I am not a fan of the can. I love a good tin. The satisfying hiss and pop it makes when you open it. The art work on the lid. I find myself not wanting to dispose of tins. Instead I try to find useful and inventive ways to reuse them. I have no such love for the can. I understand that there are good reasons to package in a can. Things like cost and a better seal, but I will always love my tins.
What is your take on this? Am I being a sentimental fool and should I get with the times?
