That led me to think she'd maybe heard something. The Ready Rubbed is much easier to get hold of. To be honest it wouldn't surprise me if the Flake and Plug both disappear soon.
    It'd surprise me, it's still the joint top selling brand along with st. Bruno isn't it? She must of got confused when they closed the gallahers factory in Belfast. I thought all the cuts of condor were being made again, somewhere in Eastern Europe.
    St. Bruno simply satisfies!

    I hope you're right Simon as I much prefer the flake to the ready rubbed. What I did notice in 2015 was the lack of outlets selling Condor flake. I eventually had to settle for two 25gr pouches from an Asian run newsagent in Glasgow when I arrived as I couldn't find anyone who sold a 50gr pouch which left me wondering what was going on especially after hearing the lady in the tobacconists comment. Even most of the big supermarkets didn't stock it although they did have ready rubbed. As you know, in Spain, Condor and St Bruno ready rubbed is available rather than the flake.
    I'll find out for myself later this year when we'll be in Spain and Scotland.

    I seem to remember reading somewhere that they were going to change the size to 30 grams (something to do with minimum pack size).Or did I dream it.
