Packards Club Snuff - supply in the UK to be ceased!
We don’t like to be the bearer of ‘bad news’, but we’ve just been told that very shortly Packards Club snuff will no longer be available in the UK.
Thinking this must be some kind of mistake, we immediately contacted Poschl via email. We received at first ‘promising’ news and then unfortunately second, a withdrawl of this news a few days later. The bomb shell being dropped that our supplier is correct. Packards Club will shortly no longer be imported into the UK.
Thank you for your E-Mail.
Sorry for my fault. Packard´s Club Snuff is no more available in the whole U.K.
Unfortunately we had to delete this product.
We are very sorry about this matter.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us again!

On a personal level, it was one of our ‘first’ favourite snuffs - way before the launch of Snuff Store and has remained one of our ‘every day’ snuffs.
Packards Club comes in a really nice retro style box, with a serving ‘doser’. It’s a fruity snuff, slightly moist and generally considered by many to be a ‘every day’ snuff.
So what can we do? Well as ‘consumers’ as well as a snuff store owner, we think it’s only right that we lobby Poschl and try to get them to change their mind.
It seems strange that during a ’snuff revival’, a time when more and more tobacco users are moving to the gentle art of snuff taking not just in the UK, (but also world-wide) that a decision such as this has been made.
Maybe if enough of us get together and contact Poschl in protest, spread the word to other snuff users and get more and more people involved in our protest, Poschl may change their mind about withdrawing Packards Club.
We recently ‘lost’ Robbies Snuff in the UK - although fortunately there are a few wholesalers left in the UK with supplies. The reason we had been given for the loss of Robbies, was that it wasn’t financially viable to print the ‘warning labels’ in English.
We do not know the reason why Packards Club is being withdrawn, as a ‘good seller’ on Snuff Store it doesn’t make any sense to us. It certainly isn’t going to make any sense to the regular Packards Club users in the UK - whether they purchase Packards Club from Snuff Store or not is besides the point…
So if you want to lodge a protest, add a comment to this post below and here’s the email address for Poschl. Make them aware of your feelings towards removing Packards Club before it’s too late.
It could be a ‘real’ SOS - Save Our Snuff…
Look out for further Packards Club snuff updates.
