I had my nearest store order it for me. I think it runs about $1.25 for 
a 5 1/2 oz. bar. They seem small, but my memory of the old bars is a 
probably a bit fuzzy. I wanted it for my laundry, for prewash spotting, 
believe it or not. Now I may have a new use for it.  Except I don't have 
any tobacco lying around...
