An exciting new product is about to bring back the use of Snuff to the UK, as well as offer a brand new alternative for smokers following the recent smoking ban.
Snuff hasn’t been widely used in the UK for over a hundred years, but Zuka is about to release two cheeky new products that are designed to give users a refreshing boost.
Zuka Black (tobacco-based) is based on an ancient recipe and contains a mild blend of tobacco flavoured with citrus fruits to give the user a pleasant snuff experience. Following the arrival of the smoking ban, Zuka Black also offers smokers a way of getting their nicotine without harming anyone around them. Zuka Black is also considerably less harmful for smokers because it is free from the gases like carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide that are released when cigarettes are smoked.
Zuka Zee (tobacco-free) is a totally natural menthol flavoured tobacco-free snuff, made from glucose blended with iguana fruit and can give you an immediate energy impact which promotes concentration, efficiency and a general feeling of well being and poses no risk to your health.
Rather than being loose packed in a tin or tub, Zuka products are packaged similarly to a cigarette packet, with a sleek diagonal snap top open lid. Inside is a cotton handkerchief with instructions. Unlike old-fashioned snuff, which has to be placed on the back of the hand or a flat surface to be taken, Zuka comes in a cheeky bullet shaped dispenser that feeds a chamber which can be loaded and sniffed from.
Phillip Rudd, of Zuka commented: “Above all, this is about bringing snuff into the twenty first century and making it available to a totally new generation.
The last time snuff was being widely used in the UK Darwin’s Origin of Species had just been published, we were fighting the Crimean War and the French were revolting. So
it was important to bring it right up to date and develop two totally new types of snuff that are more suited to the modern British social scene.”
The products have a recommended retail price of £4.99 and are now on sale at more than 3000 bars and clubs across the UK. Zuka has also been available at festivals throughout the summer.
Phillip Rudd added: “Because snuff has lain dormant for more than a century it’s an option that simply won’t have occurred to the majority of smokers. At least this way those smokers that wish to continue enjoying tobacco after the ban can get their nicotine in a socially acceptable way that doesn’t require them to stand outside in the rain every time they want to satisfy a craving. We have improved, refined and updated a product that we believe is going to get up everyone’s nose.”
Zuka Black and Zuka Zee can be obtained in single bullets from Snuff Store, at less than the RRP quoted above.
