A natural expansion process is used to make the American Club Expanded Pipe Tobacco 1 lb (16oz) a great value for any customer. The expansion process increases the volume of the tobacco by adding heat to the product, much like making puffed rice. No chemicals are added to the product during the expansion process. Why would you want expanded tobacco? The increased volume means that a 1 lb bag is 33% larger than those of other tobaccos which means a 1 lb bag will give you more fills per 1 lb bag while still having that great American Club Virginia and Burley blend taste in every puff. Enjoy the great full flavor taste of American Club Red Blend. For those looking for a more mellow flavor, the Blue blend is just what you're looking for. If you want your pipe tobacco to be on the cooler side, the Green blend is just the perfect mix of tobacco and menthol flavor. if you like a bit of the flavor of Cherry, Vanilla, or Grape in your tobacco, then American club had a blend in each of those flavors that is just what you're looking for. No matter what your flavor is, American Club Pipe Tobacco is sure to expand your list of favorite tobaccos.
