I haven't myself heard of this, but if you scroll down a little further on that web page, it states the following "This mix is a great blend, and has often been know as the leftovers of tobacco in the factory. What makes this a great blend is that it could be a different flavour every time. Nobody quite knows whats in it but this makes you want to try it as you never know what you could be getting."
It appears to be the floor cuttings or blends that did not make it into the bag or tins, yet they're gathered up and sold to the B&M' as a grab bag. If the price is right, it might be fun to grab a few grams and try it out! You never know...

Sounds intriguing. OAP has to stand for 'Old Age Pensioner'.
When I was a child, we bought something called 'Student's Loaf' at the baker shops. The story went, that they were made from floor sweeps and scrapings from the baking tins and what-have-we, and you nearly always found some interesting stuff in them. A sister of a class-mate of mine, once found a dead bee. They were very fulfilling too; a couple of them and you were immobile for hours.
A couple of months ago, I found a large jar of thirty-odd-years old tobacco left-overs. Bone dry, of course, but after suitable moistening, it's absolutely smokeable. Sort of.
If you still have your eye sight intact after smoking, do write a review.
