  • Grizzly Snuff Pouches

    OK, today I got a can of Grizzly Snuff Pouches.
    I was never taken to a dentist as a child, and I think I needed braces, as while my teeth are not like Billy Bob, they could have been corrected and straightened early in my life, but my childhood was not so good.

    So, anyway, while I have used and enjoyed loose tobacco, I have had aspects of it that I don't like, like it getting stuck in my teeth. Upper lipped los snus is the worst. Long cut dip was tolerable, but still always migrated to get stuck in my teeth. I had planned on quitting all oral tobacco, with the interest of gum health, but I guess I got myself a bit too habituated with it's use, so I at least do want to stay away from loose tobacco.

    With that in mind, I have not had any dip since, I think Dec 2010. I have been daily using portion snus of the Swedish variety, and one Denmark. So, I had the urge to get a non-candy dip pouch. I wanted the Copenhagen, but the store did not have it, so now I have gotten the Grizzly. I don't recall if I have had this before or not, in pouch form, I do recall having tried a can of the Grizzly Snuff loose a while back, and liked it.

    OK, this is an initial review, because tastes may change later.
    Decent looking plastic can with metal lid, and the 1/3rd waring label.
    Crack the can open, very nice smell, reminicent of Copen snuff odor. Dark brownish moist pouches, not extremely bigger than the standard snus portion, but slighty longer, and seems to be fatter.
    Let's put one in. I lower lipped one pouch. These are actually sleekish enough I think an upper lip would be OK.
    Not an immediate taste. Spit a little, now it's juicin' some. Kinda stingy. I wonder if I'll feel a nic hit?
    Taste of the juice is good. The pouch effect is different than a big hunk of loose long cut. I bet it's a smaller amount in the pouch that what one would usually dip loose. Has a slight sweetness to it, I like it. I switched sides. Kinda has a thickness of the juice. I am feeling something now. Not heavy, but noticable. If I never used oral tobacco, I'm sure I'd be feelin' it too much. Yeah, it's hittin'.

    Overall, yeah, this might be something to give my upper gums a break. Taste is OK, and it does have some nic.
    It's pretty good.

    tx for the review tom,

    I've had copenhagen pouches and didn't really like them...

    I Had to open the pouches and dip the tobacco... maybe grizzly is somehow different...

    The taste whle in the pouches was terrible, nothing like copenhagen long cut natural...

      Honestly. I don't like dip pouches. If I'm going to dip it's going to be loose.
      Snus I enjoy loose a lot better but I do use portions occasionally.
      Grizzly Snuff is some good shit though.

          I am just the opposite. Hate los, only use portions, if I dipped it would be portions. Can you use dip pouches like snus in the upper lip? What would the drip be like in the upper lip, could you swallow the juice?

            I would say yes. I experimented a little using dip pouches upper lipped, and the drip is very small.

              it's dripping a little too much to have them in the upper lip

                  I have a co-worker that uses Grizzly Wintergreen pouches at the office. He says it is for convenience even though he prefers loose long cut. I really don't see the point as he still spits into a cup/bottle all day at his desk. I baked him a pris of General los one day and even after my explanation of how to use it properly, he immediately threw the pris in his lower lip. Within 5 minutes he was rinsing his mouth out in the restroom sink, muttering "never again, this gets everywhere and tastes like shit." I laughed so hard I almost had to go home and get a change of pants...
