Oliver Twist Royal Tobacco, with a taste of genuine, strong licorice. Oliver Twist are smokeless tobacco pellets designed to be placed in the side of the mouth where it provides a satisfying flavor and gradually releases nicotine for up to an hour.
A tobacco pellet measures 1.0 to 0.5 cm and has a natural content of nicotine. The average sugar content of each mini-roll is 0.02 gram.
The average nicotine content of Arctic is 5 mg per tobacco pellet, based on an average moisture content of 27%. Only a small portion of the nicotine is absorbed during use, and when you remove the mini-roll after you are done using it, it will still contain nicotine.
Box is TINY. Roughly the size of a small box of matches. The "bits" are tiny too. I bought this out of couriousity, but for 10 bucks its way overpriced. For its weight, this is the most expensive tobacco I have ever used. If you have a high tolerance like me, you will have to shove 1/4 of the box into your mouth to feel anything. I only suggest this product if you have a SUPER low tolerance. For its size, this product should cost 2 or 3 bucks tops. Won't buy again.
These little tobacco bits rock!!!! The flavour is awesome, the nic hit is just right and the size is convenient. No tobacco collection is complete without a box of these.
P.S Royal is by far the best flavour. Mistersnuff was nice enough to send me the sample pack and after trying them all these ones are the best. The little pocket box they come in is also very handy.
As a guy who grew up sneaking chewing tobacco, twists or a bite of a plug, I'm trying to figure out my feelings about Oliver Twists. The biggest hurdle is the size. Usually, chewing tobacco (i.e Red Man or Beechnut) was a big ol' wad of chaw when I was younger. But these little bites are much different. First, the flavor is very subtle. Royal is a licorice flavor but with the smokiness of twist tobacco. The size is very convenient though. I had one in for an hour or so and no one ever even knew. I only had to spit a couple of times, which reminded me of good Swedish snus. I also really like the case, which in this case was the special Klik Klak case I got with the sampler. I saw the normal case at a local tobacconist though and loved the pocket sized container. All in all, Oliver Twist is designed for convenience and discretion. I don't use oral tobacco very often, maybe once a week if I can find good snus, but I would give this a chance and call it a welcome change of pace. Just know that if you are looking for something packed with flavor, these are not for you (at least in the example of the Royal). Looking forward to trying the other varieties!
