Offroad Frosted (White Dry) - Review. 5 November 2015.
I recently ahold of a new product V2 has been testing in some of the border stores, Offroad Frosted White Dry. It is described as a "...white dry pouch with a long lasting, fresh taste of spearmint and a slight hint of sweetness." With the popularity of White Dry portions rising, I predicted that eventually other companies would follow suit. But what's the difference between a White portion and a White Dry portion?
When I spoke with V2, they explained it to me. It is a "dry" version of Offroad Frosted, produced in the same way but without any moisture added. The nicotine absorbs into the blood slower than usual until the portion is completely moist, then it will work much like a regular original portion does.
Left, Offroad Frosted White Dry. Right, Original Portion Swedish Snus.
When you open a can of Offroad Frosted White Dry, the aroma that comes through is a mellow spearmint aroma. The snus feels differently in the lip, but that's due to it being a White Dry portion. It's not as uncomfortable as others I've had in the past, however. The tingle comes on almost immediately from the mint, and the nicotine gradually builds. The flavor is very much like traditional Offroad Frosted, which I was a big fan of in the past. It builds, gradually, which makes this snus one you can enjoy a lot longer than white portion or original portion. I've been able to keep these portions in for an hour plus without the flavor fading (due to the fact that it builds the longer you have it in).
If you're a fan of mint and want to try a different experience, and are somewhere you can get this, definitely pick up a can - it's a very unique snus.
