Can't remember what brand Grandma dipped, but it might have been Garrett's.
Was it ground to a fine powder? When Dad was about ready to muster out, we
lived in Michigan. Grandma came north for a visit and sent me on one of
those "secret missions". Those Yankees' idea of snuff was Copenhagen, so I
got in dutch with the old lady! Did your grandma have snuff stains at the
corners of her mouth? Gad! How nasty! Are their any old Southron women
When I was sixteen I took her to a "Six Flags" with some of my buddies (they
thought she was a hoot). We got her on a roller coaster (she was probably
70 at the time) and she started screaming and all that snuff started to fly!
All I can say is, I'm sure glad I wasn't in the car behind her! ;-)

My maternal grandma would send me on secret mission to the store to buy her
Garrett's Snuff. The she would chew on the non-business end of a kitchen
match, dip the match in the snuff and place in her mouth. Really nasty!
