Manufactured by the U.S Smokeless Tobacco Co. as part of their highly popular Skoal brand of dip, Skoal Citrus Pouches is a fruit flavored dipping tobacco which comes in a mess free pouch format. Each can of Skoal Citrus Pouches comes with .82oz (23.25g) of dipping tobacco per can. As a fan of both Skoal and fruit flavored dips, I was excited to give my can of Skoal Citrus Pouches a try!
After cracking open my can, I immediately began to notice a sweet and slightly tart aroma of lemon and lime, and I found it to be very pleasant. The aroma is very natural, and it had me quite eager to try out a pouch. Not long after popping in a pouch, I was quickly greeted with a tart taste of lime, with hints of lemon in the background and it was very enjoyable. After a few minutes the tartness began to fade, and was replaced by a sweet taste which reminded me a little bit of homemade lemonade. After about twenty minutes, the citrus flavor began to take on a bit of a sweet tobacco taste which lasted for another twenty or so minutes before becoming increasingly salty (which is when I usually removed the pouches.
The Skoal Citrus Pouches are long and fairly large, and definitely larger than a standard snus portion. They fit comfortably in my mouth, and I appreciate their mess free removal after a dip session. The pouches do however limit you from creating your own pinch sizes, so for those who prefer to take smaller or larger pinches, you’ll be better off with Skoal Citrus Long Cut.
As a whole, I enjoyed Skoal Citrus Pouches a lot, and I can definitely see myself adding it to my dip rotation to mix things up every now and then. I’ve dipped several fruit flavored dips in the past (including Skoal Berry Blend, Kayak Peach, and Kayak Grape), and I have to say that Skoal Citrus is by far my favorite in terms of taste. I find that Skoal Citrus Pouches are great as an after meal treat, or a tasty way to start your morning off!
