Wilsons Crumbs of Comfort has managed to tin a truly conventional English flavor. The time-honored addition of the spicy version of mentha that combines so well with roasted meats and, in this case, a certain roasted broad leaf cultivar. The piquant taste of spearmint wrapped in a toasted buttery bread aroma created from exclusively culled fermented and finely milled tobacco, imparts a sweet and cooling tingle in the nose. There is a slight burning sensation before an underwhelming menthol ending to this powdered delight, then followed by an exciting rush of endorphins. The color of this marvel is medium brown, the texture is moist, the flour is of a medium-fine grind. This snuff can be truly classified as a great English tradition. Take a pinch and all will be revealed.

Truly a great snuff CoC. Is one of my favorite WoS. the other being Bee M. I always have a tin of it in my rotation . Definitely one of the best Spearmint Snuffs I've ever had. Delicious!!
I don't tend to like menthol or medicated snuffs, but the Crumbs of Comfort showed me that there's more to them than just Vicks VapoRub. Crumbs of Comfort is an absolutely refreshing splash of sweet spearmint. It's lively without any hint of burn. I love it as a palate cleanser between stronger snuffs.
I can’t really pick apart the layers of smell involved in this - I usually prefer just enjoying the experience, and this one was quite enjoyable. There’s a hint of menthol and a lot of other pleasant scents, with little to no burn when I tried it. I’d recommend this for others new to snuff - it was pleasant and enjoyable.
Crumbs of Comfort is another of Wilsons of Sharrow's classic offerings. A rather high nicotine, medium moisture snuff, it offers a strong, clear spearmint aroma and slight background mentholation. In the nose, it really is reminiscent of Wrigley's chewing gum, falling somewhere between Spearmint and Doublemint, though closer to the former than the latter. Contributions from the tobacco are subtle, amounting to little more than slight earthy, toasty, lemony presences chasing the spearmint and weaker, more distant menthol. The grind struck me as being somewhat finer than indicated, and while I have an annoying tendency to blast finely ground snuffs down the back of my throat, this snuff was still easy for me to take and sat in my nose well. I could do it all day. Probably a top 5 snuff for me and one that I would feel comfortable recommending to anyone.
Ahh, Crumbs of Comfort. One of the absolute classics, and for a very good reason. The spearmint is very refreshing and it isn't overdone, but it still lasts for a good amount of time. The clearing effect is great if you suffer from allergies (and I most certainly do). It also has a nice, natural sweetness that I think is due to the tobaccos used. I swear it's got Burley in it, maybe Virginia... in any regard, what makes Crumbs of Comfort truly great is the way the natural sweetness is complimented by the spearmint, and how well balanced the flavors are.
The grind is pretty fine and the moisture is moderate. I have no trouble taking it. It never clogs me up. When I'm in the mood for it, I can easily use it all day long without getting bored.
I highly recommend it. I think every snuffer owes it to themselves to try it at least once. I'll always have some on hand. Truly excellent.
