  • Grizzly Snuff

    I got a couple of cans of this today. I had a can of this before a long while back, and was wanting a "natural" dip. I'm not so sure I like this as much as I thought I did when I had it before. Now, I'm not sure if I like this or not so much. It does have a Copenish taste, and it's been a little while since I had some Copen, but this has what I'd call a stingyness to it. It kinda hurts my mouth. It's a little bit too much flavor... I guess, I think I'd like it more if it was more subdued, not too much, but just a little. And as a snuff, which is like fine cut, I think, I think I would like this more in a long cut, mainly for better ease in the pinching and packing. I really wish the store I went to had 1900, which I wanted, but they didn't have it. Maybe I am just not liking dip as much as I thought I did. I do wish I only bought one can now. Oh well. I did try some of this earlier with a homemade "icetool", and it worked pretty good, but the downer was, the amount wasn't really enough, compared with hand pinching. So, how to decsribe this? It's not bad, is similar, I think, to Copenhagen Snuff, but I don't recall Copen Snuff having this stingingness to it, or maybe it did, and it's been too long since I had it, and this is the normal "burn" dips have. I'm gonna keep the can though, it's not downright bad, allowing trash can usage, I don't think, and I'll use it now and again, but I fond myself thinking, when it comes to oral tobacco, I think I really like loose leaf chew more than any of it.
    So, Grizzly Snuff, has a "good" flavor, a bit too stingy I think, not as good as Copen Snuff, way better than Longhorn Natural Fine Cut, and way better than Red Man Natural Fine Cut. And unless I got a rotten can that one time I bought it, way way way better than Grizzly Natural Fine Cut which I thought was undippable. Comparing just flavor, and from memory, my fave dip is Copenhagen Original Long Cut, and the Grizzly Snuff is not as good as Skoal Classic, or Red Seal Natural Long Cut. But I do think after getting this, I am probably gonna try and use these cans up, taking my time, and then just stick with loose leaf chew, I just find it tastes better, even though it's basically sweetened leaves, but I also like the mouth comfort of loose leaf chew. So, 1-10, I guess this is a 6.

    The short time I was using dip, this was my favourite.

      For me, I think it's the cut that I am having most issue with, of course it's a "snuff" which is fine cut, but this as a long cut would be more to my liking, but then, it's a snuff, and many people prefer that cut. I like a long cut, even more than the regular long cut, I had this idea called "string cut", and would be long stringy pieces, like something similar to a paper shredder, I don't know about others, but I think a cut like that would be great, it'd be thin, and yet stringy and would be super easy to use, and this cut flavored something like the Grizzly Snuff, or Copen Snuff, would be really good, I'd think.

        I bought a can of Grizzly Snuff years ago and didn't like it. The flavor was too artificial for my tastes. Grizzly Natural is the way to go, although I rarely dip.

          Last time I bought Grizzly Natural Long Cut, I hated it. Maybe I am just losing my taste for dip... I think I have. Just give me some chew.

            I liked it by the end of he can way better than natural lc which tasted like gasoline.

              Well, a little update....
              As I have said earlier, I avoid dipping right in the front part of the mouth, as my gums bother me somewhat there. Well, since I never do it, and I technically don't think tobacco has had a direct effect on my gums(nothing bad at all like pics I have seen, and before I ever used oral tobacco), I thought, this being snuff cut, I'd try some right in the front, which seems to be spot most fine cut users use it in, and so I stuck some right in front, and I have to say, it's a whole lot better like this. The flavor is better, it doesn't sting like it was on the side, and the experience of this right in front is so much better. I still prefer a long cut and to use the side with that, but this is so much better an experience for me right up front, I just hope my teeth don't fall out now(maybe I'm a little paranoid). But, up front, this is very much like Copenhagen Snuff.

                I never tried it yet. The only grizzly fine cut i have used is grizzly wintergreen fine cut.

                  Hi guays I have two questions I'm sure you can answer for me. On the military contribution thread the person asked for Grizly wintergreen but didn't specify long cut or fine cut. Can you tell me which is more popluar long cut or fine cut so I know what to get him? My local Sams club has the long cut for Less than $15 for a roll of six tins which comes out to about $2.50 per tin w/taxes and no shupping charges. Is there a better/cheaper place to get it? Thanks


                  I plan on keeping a tin to try out.

                  Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of the people I killed because they were annoying......


                  I've been wrong lots of times. Lots of times I've thought I was wrong only to find out that I was right in the beginning.

                    Long cut is usually more popular i would say. Snuff or fine cut is usually more typical of older men. 15 for 6 cans sounds amazing. I think it runs about 3 bucks where i am in central IL. Sounds like the cheapest place to get it but i've never been to where you live. I don't think people getting free dip would mind the cut but just a stab in the dark i'd say probably longcut.

                        I dipped before switching to snus. Long cut is what us kids usually dip. The only people i know that used finecut/snuff are some of my friend's grandparents

                            Got a tin of this yesterday. The flavor's decent, and similar enough to Copenhagen, but it's like having a lip full of ground glass and sand. I've used 4 pinches since yesterday, and my lip hurts like a SOB. Based solely on the flavor, I'd regularly buy this if I were a dipper, with the occasional tin of Copenhagen as a treat. Factoring in the hellfire burn, I'll never get it again. It's virtually unusable.

                              Copenhagen Long Cut is just too "salty" for me. Can't find Copenhagen Xtra Long Cut Natural anywhere. If someone can find it I'd send you the cost.

                              Only dip Copenhagen Wintergreen now. Looking for Hawken Wintergreen which The Northerner has in stock.

                              And when I hear you talk about $2.50 a can: I only wish. Where I live Dip starts at around $8.00 a can and goes up. Some stores get $13.00 a can.
