    So I'm going to make my first large purchase of tobacco online, and there's quite a selection I want to try. Unfortunately, some of whats on my list is currently out of stock on many sites. Based on what I'm ordering, can anyone suggest something similar to any of the tobaccos I'm wanting to get?

    Sugar Barrel
    Orlik Golden Sliced
    H&H Anniversary Kake
    PS Luxury Bullseye Flake
    G&H Bob's Chocolate Flake
    MB HH Old Dark Fired
    G&H Dark Flake
    SG Full Virginia Flake
    G&H Top Black Cherry
    PS Luxury Twist Flake
    SG Firedance

    Suggestions? Similarities? Any answers appreciated!

    Looks like a great order list. The only one that should be difficult to find is the FVF. There isn't anything really comparable, but there are other good Virginia flakes. Solani Silver Flake, Dunhill Flake, and some of the offerings from McClelland and Mac Baren are very good, but have different flavor profiles than FVF.

    Enjoy your order!

    A great looking list indeed!
    I'm a big fan of the Stokkebye Luxury series, and the only one not on your list is Luxury Navy Flake.
    OGS doesn't go out of stock often, but if it is, PS LNF may be a passable replacement.

    Just looked at P&C again, more than half my wish list is out of stock. :( Guess I'll either have to wait or check other sites. I was hoping to order from just one site to cut back on shipping costs.

    Sugar Barrel - OUT
    Bob's Chocolate Flake - OUT
    Old Dark Fired - OUT
    Firedance - OUT
    FVF - OUT
    Top Black Cherry - OUT

    Order placed @ 4noggins! Only things I couldn't get were Anni Kake, ODF, and FVF. Added some EMP also.
