Where to Buy


Think of the aromas of candied apples, fresh popcorn and rich creamy ice cream all rolled togehter the way they were at the carnival when you were a youngster. Then smell this light Tennessee Burley. This pleasantly aromatic, easy packing, cavendish-cut tobacco makes a delightful, relaxing smoke.

I don't know what all the stink is about regarding this blend. After all I tried it expecting something ghastly and found a very mild tobacco that was unoffensive and pleasant at times.

I think the name is misleading - Carnival sounds like a lot of fun and one would expect a FunHouse - in your face - kind of tobacco. This is not the case in this mild blend.

To me - I get buttered popcorn and a little dairy cream. No candied apples or sugary pop that was I hoping for.

Would I order this blend again - probably not. It's not bad...just not great. Smoke this early in the day when you want a mild start the day kind of smoke.

Perhaps they should have called it Movie Art House instead of Carnival.

10/3/10 Actually I am going to upgrade this to Recommended. Bought some more after a few more smokes. The description says it all and - all the elements ARE THERE that interplay throughout the bowl. Candy Apple, buttered popcorn and ice cream - ala Foster's Freeze, yep, yep, yep...I taste them all.

Why the blend got 'dissed' I don't know. I think this is a really nice change of pace aromatic - that not only tastes like tobacco but includes some really nice and pleasant surprises. I recommend this aromatic. Will be in my tobacco rotation for a while. P.S. The blend itself has an awesome pouch aroma where one can get hints of the candied apple and popcorn - nice.

I am highly recommending this because as an aromatic it does an awesome job of smelling good, having taste instead of just steam and sweet sugar, not being overly cased and its made by mcclelland so it is made of high quality tobacco. the aroma of upon opening the bag is of vanilla cream. it really does smell delicious. it is a ribbon cut of dark brown strands with just a few light brown specks. it loads easily and smokes cool. heres the fun part, it really does taste like candied apples, pop corn and vanillia ice cream with the cream taking most of the flavor and the candied apples and butter popcorn popping in and out during the smoke. mind you it is not some overly cased super flavored candy of a tobacco, mcclellands did this right because the whole time you remember you are also smoking burley with all those tasty flavors. not much on strength but i dont think this is going to be many peoples everyday smoke. i do beleave that this is a great change of pace though.
