Garrett Sweet & Mild was my first snuff. Great snuff, but definitely a bit of a challenge to take. The Indian snuffs in my last order are the same way, very dry and powdery. These schmalzlers on the other hand are super easy to snuff.
G&H's Scented KB seems to be an excellent afternoon snuff.
Also, while a newbie sampler is always a good idea -- the little tins are so cheap that you can easily try a bunch with very little investment. I'm sure mrsnuff is fine, though I will add that I've had very good and very fast service from snuffstore.co.uk as well. My first order arrived in a week (UK to Canada) and was very reasonably priced.
Jordan - if you'll PM me on Friday (not today because I am away from home and might forget) with your address, I have a few samples that I'll send you to try.
Maybe we need a Snuff MAW or Snuff Newbie Sampler thread. The tricky part is finding those little "dealer" sized ziplock baggies. Where do you buy those anyway?
I got my dealer baggies at Staples. I think the ones I picked up were 2x3 inch. They're perfect at pipe and tobacco shows for taking a bowl or two's worth of sample tobacco at a time.
Regarding the Snuff MAW or sampler thread, I've PM'd a moderator here about adding a "Puff Snuff" section to puff.com. He said the mods are looking into it, but I haven't heard anything in a week. Hopefully they'll see enough action to warrant it's own section. Please mods!!!

My newest Mr. Snuff order was waiting for me when I got home from traveling last night. I tried the Wilson's of Sharrow Apple first. Very mild apple flavoring sitting upon a nice tobacco base (which is why I like WOS snuffs). This morning I tried the WOS Berwick Brown. Interesting, but the jury is still out on the flavor of this one (for me anyway). I seem to get a little barnyard thing happening. I'm going to let it rest and come back later...
Next up F&T High Dry Toast and then WOS Strawberry at some point today.

Me too! Well except mine was from snuffstore.co.uk. But there it was waiting for me! Very exciting.
I started out with a little pinch of G&H English Rose. Wow, they're really not kidding about the rose in this one. I think I like it, but it will be an occasional snuff.
Next I had a little sniff of F&T Princes Special. This one tones the rose down, and adds in some other interesting perfumes as well. I also like the coarser, moist texture. Again, an occasional.
Later on, I had a more substantial dose of the SG KB Plain. This one is interesting, and surprisingly coarse. I actually picked a little stick out of the snuff before I sniffed. Nice though, It'll hit regular rotation.
Finally, I had the overall grand-slam winner for the evening: G&H Kendal Brown. Now *THIS* is good stuff. Dark, rich, earthy, and thoroughly enjoyable. This one joins O&G in my personal hall of fame.
Spent the day with Toque Christmas Pudding, a very nice snuff.
I used to really love this snuff but now I just really like it. As its been sitting around, its lost the clove and nutmeg flavors. Its pretty much just cinnamon with a hint of pumpkin pie spice now. Wish that pumpkin pie spice didn't die off!
