I just bought a tin of Frog Morton at the local B&M, and now I see what the fuss is all about! I was wondering though. This store's smoking section is quite small now, and this tin was in a basket with about 10 other tins of various types, and I could easily believe it's been around a while. The number on the bottom is 452509. Is there a way to tell the date it was packed from this? The store's story is impressive but sad. It's 100 years old today, and has been in the same family the entire time! but what started out mostly as a smoke shop is now more Kitch (spelling?), candy and bakery, with the smoking section getting smaller and smaller according to one of the owners. If you live in southern WI., I refer to Andrea's Smoke Shop in Kenosha.
