As I said in a recent post, Jake’s Mint Chew has recently introduced a new Cranberry flavor of their product. Honestly I was a bit worried about this flavor as I’m not a huge fan of “flavored” chews, and my love for cranberry is limited to my once-a-year dip into the Thanksgiving cranberry jelly that comes out of a can in a big lump.
Now that I’ve got my cranberry credentials covered… onward.
This is a pretty good chew. The look, feel and texture of this flavor is identical to the other Jake’s Mint Chew products I’ve reviewed. The flavor here is understated which to me is a very good thing. Getting smacked in the face (or the mouth as the case may be) with a HUGE cranberry flavor wouldn’t have been a good thing in my opinion. This is a nice subtle cranberry flavor that lasts the whole chew long.
Spitibility and longevity are very nice here. I kept this in for a good 20-30 minutes and I never really lost flavor and it stayed moist throughout. Jake’s still doesn’t pack all that well (at least not like a traditional tobacco chew) but it’s not really supposed to.
Nice smell upon opening the can and as I stated earlier a nice sweet flavor. The flavor profiles here is just what I’d expect from a cranberry chew. To me it evoked the cranberry sauce that I eat at Thanksgiving rather than “fresh” cranberries. My wife drinks cranberry and vodka and it also reminded me a bit of that (sans the vodka 😉 )
The new cranberry flavor has already been added to the Jake’s website. It’s available as a 10 pack, part of a split 10 pack and is also included in their sampler pack (where you’ll get one of each of their current 7 flavors).
