It took me two years to finish a stick of Arko. Or so I thought. Then I discovered that I had only grated half a stick into the bowl. At that rate a dozen Arko sticks will last me roughly 50 years. I'll invest in some more Tabac instead. 250g for the same price. P.S.: It took me two years, because I wouldn't be able to use it exclusively - unlike Tabac.
