Vintage Ad (1932): Granger Tobacco

"Why do I say that? Well, just as soon as you come into the house and pack your pipe with Granger, you seem to be in a good humor."

Granger ads of this period positively reek of this stuff. Man comes home from work, flops down with his pipe, stay-at-home little woman coos over him and compliments him on his choice of pipe tobacco. Kind of nauseating, to me.

Granger is still made, and is just a plain burley tobacco, but as with other allegedly "plain" tobaccos that are old traditional American smokes, it is probably saturated with propylene glycol and I'm sure I would find it horrendous, right in the same category with Half & Half, Sir Walter Raleigh, Prince Albert, et. al.
