Bummer! Sorry to hear that. I know how it feels. I got a moldy tin of Sam's Flake very early this year left over from the last batch and luckily the retailer was able to replace it.Dammit! Moldy streak runs right through all of the flakes. Definitely fuzzy, nasty mold, and not sugar bloom. I sent an email off to the retailer, we’ll see how it plays out...
I only have several different tins on the way, but I agree! Guess the plan will be to pop all of the new tins, verify the situation, jar the tobacco, and then keep an eye on it.This makes me a touch nervous since I have a fair amount of SG on its way to my house. Was Kendal Flake the only thing you purchased or just the only thing that had mold?
The choc flake was fine. Only the Kendal Cream, which was the real bummer for me as I love that stuff.This makes me a touch nervous since I have a fair amount of SG on its way to my house. Was Kendal Flake the only thing you purchased or just the only thing that had mold?
I ordered some. There was no warning about it, but I’ll be sure to open mine when it gets here. Thanks for the heads up.One of the vendors said the same thing about Brown no 4 ropes - they had a warning that they were opening and inspecting the boxes before shipping.
It’s rock solid for sure.Bummer man but certainly glad to see they're making it right. I'm still hoping for more Kendal Plug as I'm fairly certain I can sand any mold off the outside because it's just got to be a scientific impossibility for the mold to penetrate that rock solid block
Only got one tin. But the boxes, oh, the boxes.All my tins were popped when I got them today (the new SG tins, not quite as bad as the Hansom Flake tins, but close), so you'll probably be jarring stuff from this drop anyway. Hopefully, that will make checking for mold suck marginally less for some people.
That is a crying shame man, sorry to hear about this... though it happens. Kendal Cream is one of my favorites from SG and it used to be the last one on the shelves back in the day, this one rarely ran out of stock. This is also one of the only tobaccos that I've found a difference in the tinned version vs. the bulk (box) stuff. I prefer it out of the tin but I bought pounds of the stuff in boxes years ago so it will have to do... as hard as this stuff is to come by these days, it's better than nothing.The choc flake was fine.
