I just got back from the store for a dip run and put a dip in. Immediately I was urinated off because it's dry. I despise, nay, HATE
dry dip. If I wanted to dip a cigarette, I would do so. So then I started doing some internet searching and have found what many have longed to know, and that is how to read the dates for Grizzly. If you dip Grizzly you know they don't use a "Fresh until xx/xx/xxxx" or "Made on xx/xx/xxxx" date system on the can. No, they have to use a ridiculous code that looks like computer script. For instance mine is: 12L2GH2.
The key is the last 2 figures in the code equal the date of manufacture.
The letter represents a month:
J=September (they skip "I" because it looks like a 1)
The number represents the year
and so on. I hope this revelation helped you like it did for me.
