Recently, GN Tobacco added a number of new brands to their existing Oden’s lineup of snus. A few days ago I was able to get a can of Oden’s Vanilla White. Having never tried a vanilla flavored snus before, I was excited to see how a vanilla flavored snus would taste. Cans of Oden’s Vanilla come with 10 grams of average strength white snus.
Opening opening my can, I immediately noticed a strong vanilla aroma, with just a little bit of tobacco present. The aroma didn’t remind me of vanilla extract, but instead smelled a bit floral, definitely an interesting aroma. Upon placing a portion in my mouth, I soon began to detect a vanilla flavor, and it was very interesting. Rather than taste like I imagined, the vanilla flavor has a “creamy” edge to it and taste a bit like vanilla ice cream. It was definitely quite tasty, and having had nothing like it before I really found it to be tasty. For the first twenty minutes I couldn’t really taste any tobacco, but later on I got slight hints of a very mild tobacco taste on the palate. Vanilla White also wasn’t too salty, which meant that it didn’t really get bitter tasting over time. Instead the vanilla gradually faded away until I could hardly taste anything at all at the one hour mark.
The portions were quite large, and filled with a good amount of tobacco. Although Vanilla didn’t have the same kick that other members of the Oden’s family had, it did start a produce a pleasant (yet mild) buzz after about five minutes. The portions were quite dry, and as a result I experienced very little drip while keeping a portion in (I lost all flavor and still didn’t notice very much drip).
Overall, I really enjoyed Oden’s Vanilla White. Having never tried a Vanilla flavored snus before I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I can say that Oden’s really delivered with this one. I recommend Oden’s Vanilla White as a great after meal treat, or during a hot summer day. I suggest giving Oden’s Vanilla a try if you’re looking to try a totally different snus flavor!
