Hello fellow snuffers! I am pretty new to snuff. I just purchased my first snuffs two days ago and so far I am enjoying it. I am looking to cut back on my smoking, and eventually quit completely. With the snuff I have cut back on my smoking pretty noticeably. I tried the ecig route and it did not work. Chew and snus are just not for me. I dipped when I was younger and never really enjoyed it. After a bit of research, snuff seemed to be a good option.
After doing my research, I really wanted to find some snuff. From what I read, it was a bit difficult to come by in shops in the states. But after stopping in a few local shops, I found that Silver Dollar was pretty easy to come by. I grabbed myself some silver dollar vanilla and spearmint. So far I am really enjoying it. The spearmint is much more enjoyable for me than the vanilla. I have gone through almost the whole 5g container of spearmint in the past few days. The vanilla isn't really doing it for me. It isn't bad by any means, I just find it lacking compared to the spearmint. I have mixed the two and I found that to be rather enjoyable.
I'm making this post because I want to get some recommendations on go to snuffs. The reason I titled this thread "snuffs for beginners and non beginners" is because though I am new to snuff, I am not new to tobacco or nicotine, and I am not new to shoving stuff up my nose. I have put some god awful things up my snooter and the snuff I've tried so far has been mild compared to some of the other things that have been up there.
So just to give you all a bit of a reference guide, I have only tried Silver Dollar spearmint and vanilla. Both of those have a mild, but acceptable nic hit for me. The spearmint for me is enjoyable, though I find myself tooting it every 10 minutes or so. The vanilla has slightly less of a nic hit for me, and though I enjoy the vanilla flavor, this just doesn't cut it. Like I said earlier, I like the vanilla/spearmint mix. The vanilla on it's own just doesn't cut it.
The last paragraph was just covering then snuffs I've tried so far so here is the basic run down of what I can handle for a snuff and maybe will help you point me in the right direction. I love mint and menthol. The Silver Dollar spearmint was good, though the spearmint scent didn't last long. I really enjoy any kind of mint or menthol. I also enjoy anything fruity. Vanilla/coffee/toffe flavors or anything like that are also enjoyable for me.
When it comes to scents or flavors, I really enjoy just about anything. I do prefer minty or menthol, though I also find it is easy to mix that with just about anything else.. I don't particularly enjoy the sweet or bitter scents or flavors on their own, though fruity I do think I would enjoy solo.
I also would like a relatively strong nic hit. The Silver Dollar so far has been acceptable, but mild. I could handle a bit more, Even with large hits, the Silver Dollar isn't too much to handle. Even a stronger snuff mixed with a milder flavored snuff would be nice.
