Is there a way to cellar Copenhagen?
I guess vacuum sealing might be an option.
Can’t you freeze it?

also, the whole limiting and slowly reducing nicotine levels (more so in vape than cigarettes), as well as banning the use of flavours to hide the taste of tobacco has been a big part of NZs smoke free strategy. It doesn’t make sense to me. I’ve always thought removing taxes altogether and only allowing people to smoke rope tobacco would be far more effective…ok, so my unconscious bias is showing.

The environment in a freezer would dry out the tobacco. I'm with you on the ropes.

My neighbour keeps both his green and white snuss (?) in the fridge. He buys about 2 years worth at a time. Not sure if that’s necessary or not, but those little plastic containers are pretty solid.

I think this is why we got rid of British. And wrote the Constitution with detailed information on how to prevent it. 2nd. Guess some of these people some people voted in didn't study history. Fuck 'em. Wait.. This post might get deleted. But it's not political! It's history lesson!
Agreed ?

American dipping tobacco is very poorly packaged. It'll turn to dust in a matter of weeks.

Maybe aromatics
Careful, just a simple nudge could make them consider latakia, dark fired, and perique flavored tobacco. Even the sweet casings on nearly all production tobacco could be considered added flavor. Considering that aromatics are 90% of pipe tobacco sales, they go, pipe tobacco will be a thing of the past.
