a bit of information that might be new to some here:
mongolia has a still very active snuff-taking tradition.
i spend the (chinese lunar year) new year at a mongolian friends house (by he way, mongolian food can be great) and had a pack of gletscherprise with me. i expected this to be new and exciting, but instead it turned out theat nasasl snuff-taking was something everyone (about 15 mongolian friends of my friend) knew about. all tried my snuff and all told me that this (the gletscherprise) was very unlike any mongolian snuff. it seems that mongolian snuff is usually not mentholated, but still all seemed to enjoy the gletscherprise.
i was told that mongolian snuff is usually imported from india.
it is stored in bottles and taken with spoons (maybe the chinese tradition ist still alive in mongolia).
the good qualities are very pricey (about a months wage for a bottle, i was told)
it is offered mutually when visiting someones house. (at least older people still seem to practise this tradition)
needless to say i left the gletscherprise as a present.
so, dont forget your snuff if you happen to go to mongolia ^^
