Why does Skoal not make a non-mint snus?

    So I know most people here don't like American snus, but considering I don't go through that much snus, ordering online isn't worth it for me, mint burns my cheeks, and I cannot STAND bergemont, so General is out, which leaves me with Camel Robust/Mellow which taste great IMO but don't have much of a kick, Marlboro red snus, which again tastes okay but is even weaker. I like the nic hit from Skoal snus but the mint BURNS so much. I know I'd like it if Skoal made a "straight" flavor of their snus, but they don't! Why not? I really doubt the FDA would hesitate to approve an unflavored tobacco product made by a big firm and I'm sure it would sell, like who could argue with something that tastes like american dip AND has no spitting?

    I don't know why. What you could do is order some snus online and keep it in the freezer in a sealed container until you need it. Since shipping is so high it makes sense to order enough for a year or two. If you like straight tobacco flavor then you might try some skruf es. It's plain tobacco and es(extra strong)

    Thanks for the tip! I'm thinking about using one of those direct import sites like snus24 so I can try a bunch of different things, is that Al Capone snus any good? I really like their cigars.

    I haven't tried the Al Capone. When I first started using snus, I tried a bunch of different ones but now mostly use thunder raspberry and general mint. For plain tobacco I used to like the skruf I mentioned and I also liked the Lab 01, 02, and 05. Some people like ettan but I never could get a taste for it. Grovsnus wasn't bad either.

    I missed this post, but if you're still watching it @sqirl1 then check out Northerner.com. They carry Thunder original and Offroad original. Both good straight tobacco flavors without the bergemont that General has. Plus if you like green apples, you should try the Jacobbson's Flader. Plus Northerner ships from the US and is much cheaper than shipping from overseas. Get 15% off your first order if you sign up for their news bs.
