I’m a big fan of innovation. Just because something is working doesn’t necessarily mean it’s as good as it’s going to get. The makers of Holt Tobacco Free Herbal Snuff apparently believe the same thing as they’ve released an update to their Peppermint all herbal snuff.
You can read my previous review of Holt Tobaccoless Chew here, but if you’re not familiar with this Montana based smokeless alternative vendor there’s one thing that really sets them apart – their product is made from alfalfa leaves. Yep… ALFALFA.
alfalfa leaves, water, honey, peppermint, cayenne pepper, ascorbic acid used as a preservative
Just as the previous incarnation, Holt has a great smell when I opened the can. The pros and cons are pretty much the same as they were back when I did my original review, but this version has cayenne pepper added to give it a bit more “bite” which is great. The one thing that has always separated Holt from the others in my mind is how “soft” it feels in my mouth. I’m thrilled to say that hasn’t changed with the updated formula.
Holt Herbal Snuff is a nice alternative if you’re a wintergreen / peppermint dipper. I personally don’t really care about the “health benefits” of alfalfa, but for some that may be a big win. For me, it’s more of a win that it’s a good tasting, soft chew that doesn’t grate on my gums and this update (adding the cayenne pepper) adds a bite that was missing from the previous formula. In looking through their website it doesn’t appear as if you can choose between the old and new formulas so if you’re going to be using Holt this is the one you’ll get. Special thanks to Dave Holt for sending along a sample can for me to try.
