    Gold River dip

    This is a mini-review of Gold River dip.

    Yay, or nay? Yay.

    Not sure if this is popular, as it doesn't seem locally available, when I read about this, I was very curious, as the only dip flavor I like at all is "Natural", though I really like the sweet loose leaf chews, and read this is like the flavor of sweet loose leaf chew, in a dip cut. Overall, I prefer loose leaf chew, because of the cut, I just like a big hunk of leaf over the small dip cut. But I still might use dip sometimes, especially if it's something I haven't tried and am curious about, such as this Gold River.

    I want to thank again the member who traded this to me, as I could not find it locally. Not sure how old these cans are, and having bought some dry cans myself before, upon opening it, it was not as moist as I had thought, but that's just par for course when buying dip, unless you buy a popular known brand that sells fast. So, I opened the top...

    One is greeted with a nice smell, a sweet maple syrup, honey like smell. I grabbed some and stuck it in my mouth. Though it seemed kinda dry by my fingers, it juiced up fine in the mouth, and the flavor is like the smell. Sweet, but not super sweet, just right, and a nice taste reminding me of maple syrup and honey.

    The cut is called long cut, and it is, though it really holds together well, almost like a stringy cut. Packs easy, and holds in place, and even is easy to switch sides.

    As far as strength or buzz, I have no idea, as I don't get one with anything.

    Overall, I give this a yay score. It's different and unique. It's not really like sweet loose leaf chew, but I guess that's the closest one could compare it too.

    Yeah, I like this. It's not bad at all, and not gag inducing, like most "Straight" flavored dips affect me.

    For people that dip, and like loose leaf chew, I'd recommend it, at least to say they tried it.

    Gold River!!

    Now there is a blast from the past. I have not had GR in years but if my memory serves me it is just like Tom described it: chew in long cut dip form. The nic is milder than with say a Copenhagen of Skoal.

    They also used to make a wintergreen or mint version called Silver Creek that was a little stronger in the nic department (still not dip strength though)

    Anyway, glad you found it Tom.

    If you want I'll be glad to keep my eye out for it for you. Seems I saw some in a Grocery store about a year back (can't remember but it has been a while-- but then again I am not looking for it)

      Thanks snusdog, I got a 5 can roll, and while I do like it, I still prefer loose leaf chew, and may not feel a need to get more when I use these 5 cans up, but I'll let you know.

          Northerner does stock this stuff. And after reading your review about it, i'll probably throw in a can in my next order, sounds good.

            It's different, not like any other dip I've ever had. Though, as I have my 2nd dip in now as I write this, overall, I think I like Natural flavor dips more, and regular loose leaf chew more than that. But it's not bad at all, it reminds me of something but I can't think of what it is.....

            But it's a decent maple/honey flavored dip.

              I was trying to think of what this reminded me of, in taste, and I found it:

                I like Bit-O-Honey. I'm not a dipper at all, but you've really got me interested in this Tom. I may throw a can in my next Northerner order too.

                  It's different, as far as dip goes. I have a big hunk in now. It's shredded Bit-O-Honey flavored tobacco. Though the sweetness at times seems to hurt my teeth. I'll be sure to brush well afterwards.

                    When I first saw this thread, I thought I had seen in the grocery stores as well. I never tried it but am intrigued by the Bit-O-Honey comparison. I haven't found it but a local small tobacco store said he would check with his Swisher distributor to see if he could get it. I started to order some from Northerner but wanted to try to find it local.

                      While this does have a nice Bit-O-Honey flavor, such a distinct flavor for me, can get old fast, so I'll alternate this with other things. I mean, I don't think I could dip this exclusively, and still like it. Now the Natural dips, I could.

                          Gold River was the first oral tobacco I ever tried back in 1978. I think it was great and much easier to use than Swedish snus, which I tried later. For a while Gold River along with Skoal was sold in Europe as well. Probably that's the reason EU panicked and banned dip and snus.

                            This stuff isn't bad

                            It's a dessert tho. Not a daily dip.
