Offroad Frosted (Original Portion) - Review. 23 January 2010.

Review Updated: 15 February 2019

It's been a little while since I've had this snus, and according to SnusCENTRAL.com "V2 Tobacco has changed the flavor and design", so I figured I would revisit it.  Back in the day, I used to use a lot of this snus.  I started with General Mini Mint, then went to Thunder Frosted, then ended up with this.  I liked this one because it was regular strength but had the same Thunder Frosted flavor.  Yes, back in the day I was a mint snus addict.  The first 3 months of my snus journey were primarily mint, before I fell in love with the traditional bergamot flavor.

When it comes to Offroad Frosted, the flavor description says it has "a refreshing spearmint taste".  It comes in an 18 gram can with 20 portions for 0.9g portions.  The nicotine content is 8mg/g (0.8%), which equals out to 7.2mg/portion.  This is a budget snus, and is priced at $2.42 a can.  So, it's certainly a way to go if you want to save a few bucks!  Swedish Match's Green Ice, which is their spearmint snus, is $4.40 per can.

When you open the can, the aroma is a sweet, present smell of spearmint. The portions are moist, plump, and comfortable in the lip. Being a mint product, you'll also encounter a cooling sensation when you put a portion under your lip. The flavor is a refreshing spearmint taste.  It comes through pretty present, but not overly in your face or anything.  It's lightly sweet, but not overdone.  There's also a little tobacco taste in the background, too, but it's pretty mild.  As far as the nicotine strength goes, it feels to be right at the regular strength level.  The flavor, on average, lasts about 45 minutes.

If the flavor of this product has changed, I didn't really notice it.  But then again, I haven't had this snus since I did my last video review of it in 2015.  That being said, for a budget snus, it has a really nice flavor.  If you like spearmint and want to save some money, this is definitely one to check out!
