Depending on where you live in the world, tobacco products can go by many different names. While there are differences in cigars, cigarettes, and cigarillos, there are all differences in the names and types of oral use types of tobacco.
Not as commonly enjoyed as cigars and cigarettes, smokeless or oral tobacco products are still very popular throughout the world. In North America, these types of products may be called snuff, chewing tobacco, dipping tobacco or just “dip,” while in part of Europe the product is most commonly known as snus.
Regardless of what it is called, there are also some differences between the products. Chewing tobacco is typically flavored and tends to be courses in texture and cut, and inserted between the lower lip and the gum or actually chewed and moved about in the mouth. Snus is not fermented and is usually placed between the upper lip and the gum, and tends to be drier than other forms.
Siberia Chewing Tobacco Options
While often referred to as Siberian chewing tobacco, the brand is actually Siberia Snus. It is very popular due to the high nicotine content in the product, as well as the traditional Swedish Snus appeal.
One of the most popular flavors in Siberian chewing tobacco or snus is the extremely strong flavored and aptly named -80°C Strong White Dry. This is a spearmint flavored snus that offers a punch. It is not typically recommended for people as a first snus product, but for those with experience with this smokeless tobacco, it offers a great alternative to more traditional options.
The flavor of this and other types of the Siberia Snus is definitely evident, and it just takes a small pinch to have the flavor and the sensation of ice cold mint. The product also comes in pouches for the convenience of use.
