    I was looking on C&D website and they have a 5 pack sampler in 5 individual 4ml bags. Does anyone have any idea how much 4ml is? I know I could just call them but thought I would ask here since I'm not near a phone.

    4ml = 0.135 ozs so in total you'd end up with .675 ozs.

    how much are they charging for the sampler? i would think samples would be free/very cheap since they want people to try and buy.

    I haven't seen the 5 4 ml samples? They have a 5 sampler pack with 2 oz of toby each and you pick the blends for $31...

    I am pretty sure 4 ml is referring to the thickness of the bag, not it's capacity. I think they are saying it now will come ziplock bagged vs tinned. I think it is just misleading. A phone call would answer the question for sure.

    Yeah, I think they meant 'mil' as in thousandth of an inch rather than 'mL' as in milliliter. 4mil plastic would probably be the normal gauge for tobacconist baggies as opposed to wimpy little sandwich bags.

    I don't know why I was thinking milliliter when it's a fluid measurement.

    Probably because they wrote it wrong :) 4 mL could sort of make sense if it was just like a one bowl sample.

    How do you order the samplers? Just write them and tell them what you want?
    (or call)

    You can get the tinned C&D blends in 2 oz samples for the 5 sample pack. If it is one of their premium brands, it is a 1 oz sample. Some of the premium brands are Two Friends, Captain Earl, Serenity Series, and Hermit.

    Ming, if you want to order, they prefer you call.

    Here is my list:
    C&D Opening Night (I had before but am out)
    C&D Epiphany
    C&D Star of the East Flake
    C&D Exhausted Rooster
    C&D Pirate Kake (Had a bowl at Capt's house and loved it!)
    GL Pease Jack Knife Plug (I had a sample once and loved it)
    GL Pease Fillmore

    Thinking about Purple Cow as #8 or the other Star of the East if there are 2 versions.
    I had and like Kajun Kake. That one is on the bubble. lol
