Mint Snuff is one of the elder statesmen in the chewing tobacco alternative arena. They use mint leaves instead of tobacco. They advertise their product as safe to eat. They even put that in their telephone number. It is 1-800-EAT-MINT. Mint snuff is available online but I was able to pick up a can at the local grocery store. Up for review today is their original mint flavor.

Mint Snuff Review


Mint Snuff is available in a lot of different flavors and they even have pouches for those that like to keep their teeth chew free. The first Mint snuff that I tried was the original mint flavor. When I first opened the can my nostrils were filled with the smell of real mint. I love that smell and it made my mouth water. Those good feelings would soon leave when I realized that this stuff is a pain to get out of the can. In all fairness I did buy this from the grocery store and not direct from the company so I did have doubts about the freshness. It was hard and I do mean hard. It was kinda like a hockey puck. After I managed to get a pinch I put it in my lip. It felt a little lumpy in my lip but the flavor was good so I kept it in. I did like the fact that this stuff was safe to gut. I used to swallow regular chew as a last option and it usually made me feel a little sick, but Mint snuff had no effect on me. It was not a very strong mint flavor and it doesn’t make you spit all that much. It also did not stay together as long as I had hoped.




Mint Snuff is a tobacco alternative and that is all I can say. It was not a product I will buy again even though the price is right. If you are going to try it I would suggest ordering direct from the company so that you don’t get something that has been on the shelf for who knows how long. If you are going for Mint Snuff I do recommend the pouches. The pouches are much better and I have been a repeat buyer of those.
