Hupyrian beetle snuff

Hupyrian beetle snuff.

Hupyrian beetle snuff was a fine powder made of dried beetles that was a delicacy among Ferengi. It was inhaled through the nose and could often produce a fit of sneezing. It acted as a mild stimulant with some euphoric side effects. It also had a deleterious effect on the linings of the nose which was cumulative.

In 2151, Ulis offered his cousin Krem his beetle snuff collection in exchange for his freedom. Krem declined, noting that it made him sneeze. (ENT: "Acquisition")

In 2373 Grand Nagus Zek invested a considerable amount of Ferengi wealth into a new strain of beetle that he believed would revolutionize the beetle snuff market. (DS9: "Rules of Acquisition", "Prophet Motive", "Ferengi Love Songs")

During Zek's captivity in the mirror universe, he introduced Regent Worf to beetle snuff, which the Regent took a liking to. (DS9: "The Emperor's New Cloak")
