Bernard Magic Moments Black is a specially fruity version of a traditional schmalzler. This tobacco powder has all the rich and complex notes of a fermented snuff with the addition of sweet strawberry flavor. The grind is medium coarse, color is dark, the texture is moist and it's easy to take with little to no burn. Perhaps the ideal introduction to German snuff taking. Genießen Sie eine Prise!
Available in a convenient 10 g dispenser or box of twenty.

Very nice strawberry scent. I like this one in the evening.
Bernard Magic Moment black was part of my very first snuff package. It's the last one I finished. Because I wanted to make it last. It's texture is amazing and stays in the nostril without ever going "too high" like not many a snuff I have tried. Delicious strawberry turning on plum hits you as the fine nicotine hit gets to your synapses. A great feeling of awarness and yet of relaxation. Does not burn or tingle too much either. Clearly not one of those powdery english/indian style snuffs. Bernard has hit a sensible chord here. Ordering a new one right away as I am almost done with my second can.
The best with sweets or as before bed snuff
I really like the flavor of this snuff, it reminds me of pipe tobaccos and has a sweet flavor that lasts. I highly recommend.
I thought I had reviewed this before -- not favorably -- but that review seems to have wandered off. I'm actually glad it did, because there's something someone who is new to schmalzlers (as I was) needs to understand:
This one, at least, has a "getting used to it" period -- just as taking snuff does, generally, when one first picks up the endeavor. If this is your first schmalzler, or if it's just this "flavor" that's new to you, see the headline, and give it time.
Magic Moments has a "flavor" that's all its own in the ranks of my collection and, based on other reviews, among schmalzlers, as well. Sweet, *sweet* strawberry top note, with an undertone of very pleasant wood smoke.
The grind is soft and fluffy, and it's very easy to take quite a bit of this at a time; what's not so easy, when you're first getting into schmalzlers, is *keeping* it in there without blowing your nose. Its burn isn't up front, as an English style snuff's is. It's a slow burn that strolls up on you rather than whacking you across the head. Then that back drip comes in, and that takes some getting used to in its own right. It's not exactly pleasant, even after you're used to it -- but you *do* get used to it, to the point where it's not exactly *un*-pleasant, either. It's just there and you deal with it; call it the price of admission for a lovely flavor and a rather more than decent nicotine fix.
You may love it; you may hate it. But do give it a try.
