Oden's Extreme: Creamy Wintergreen - Review. 13 February 2012.

Review Updated: 8 September 2021.

In the world of snus, there's quite a few wintergreen products out there.  As I've said many times, I'm not the biggest wintergreen fan.  In fact, I think the tagline for Snubie.com may change to "I'm not a wintergreen guy".  There's two wintergreen products that I've reviewed that I enjoy personally:  this one, and Cannadips Wintergreen.  This is a really unique flavor, almost like a wintergreen cream soda.  It's a very surprising product.  The product description for this one says, "A super strong original portion with a taste of creamy wintergreen".  This snus comes in an 20 gram can with 20 portions for 1 gram portions. The nicotine content is 22mg/g (2.2%), which breaks down to 22mg/portion.

The best I've ever been able to describe this snus is saying it's like a wintergreen cream soda, or a wintergreen vanilla float. I know, that probably sounds disgusting, but trust me, it works.  When you open the can, the aroma that greets you is a is a mild but sweet smell of wintergreen and a touch of vanilla.  The portions are quite plump, and feel comfortable in the lip.  I find them to be less moist than your regular original portion, which I really like.  The flavor releases about the same as a more moist original portion, but I find it lasts much longer.  The taste is very much like the aroma.  And, very much like the name; it is a creamy taste of wintergreen.  The wintergreen flavor is relatively mild and is lightly sweet.  There is a gentle flavor of vanilla that pairs quite well with the wintergreen.  I know, vanilla wintergreen just sounds weird but it works.  After about 20-25 minutes, I notice a mild tobacco character in the background, as well.  The flavor lasts a good amount of time; I find I can keep these in for up to 50-55 minutes, which is slightly longer than most original portions.  The nicotine feels to be at the extra strong level, so it packs a nice kick, as well.

Rating and Final Thoughts

If you're a fan of wintergreen, or if you aren't a fan of wintergreen, I suggest everyone try this snus out.  Even if you get just one can, it's worth a shot.  I don't like wintergreen and I love it.  It rates in at 4/5 for me.  This is a really good snus.  I know a lot of people out there don't like it, but it's one I enjoy.  And I don't usually dig wintergreen.  So, whether you like, or don't like, wintergreen - you owe it to yourself to try this one out!


  1. I got some of this I don't even taste a hint of wintergreen. Mine mostly tastes like crap, I am gonna get another can to try but this doesn't even taste like straight tobacco.
