And now, for something completely different! Today, I’m going to be reviewing Smokey Mountain (Tobacco-Free) Grape! Â This is a tobacco free, nicotine free long cut product! “Wait a minute, what’s the point of this?” you may be asking. Well, there are a few people that want to quit snus (or dip), and miss the feeling of a pinch in their lip. Products like this are a great alternative for those who choose to go that route.
“Okay, so what’s in this stuff?” you may also be asking. Â According to the Northerner.com description,Â “Smokey Mountain Snuff is made with hand-selected corn silk and kudzu root. The manufacturer believes that these expensive herbs provide the best base for tobacco-free snuff. Smokey Mountain Snuff also contains a proprietary blend of ingredients and flavorings in order to produce a rich, smooth taste. It’s spitless!” Â The flavor of this product is described as “unmistakable grape flavor. This is a loose cut product that consists of small strands of tobacco.” Â The total can weight is 28.35 grams.
The aroma of this stuff is, as the product description says, unmistakably grape. It smells a lot like a grape soda, but there’s a darker quality to it. The material itself (because I don’t know what else to call it since it isn’t tobacco) is a lot like long cut snus or long cut dip. You can’t bake it, you basically just have to take a pinch and throw it in your lip. I’m not too experienced with this, so it’s a mess at first. The material is interesting; I find it to be moist, and it quickly releases flavor, but it doesn’t feel like anything I’ve ever had before. The taste is a lot like the aroma. It’s a straightforward grape flavor, which reminds me of grape soda. It has a slight sweetness to it, and a dark quality to it which is hard to describe. The flavor lasts a good amount of time – on average up to about 45-55 minutes.
I find this stuff to be pretty interesting. Â If you’re looking to quit dip or snus,Â I find Ananta to be a good alternative. Â I’d also love to see this flavor in a snus product!
