Viking Dark --- they changed it?!

Okay what is going on in the world? I bought some viking dark a few weeks ago which was different to the good ole viking I used to buy months ago!

At the time I thought it was some sort of cross contamination with viking spearmint! But then today I received some more and low and behold! It's different, with that same spearmint undertone and not so smokey, and it certainly doesn't smell like a vacuum cleaner no more! 

What is the world coming to?!!? 

It isn't a bad snuff, just not the same....I'm gutted.


  • This happened ages ago. I think when SG and G&H merged, but I'm not sure. I bought 2 500g tubs not knowing it'd be different than I was expecting. But it's still good snuff, just had to get used to it.
  • yup different now. i have some old and new and it's definitely not the same. good still but not the same
  • I threw a couple on my last order but have not tried one yet. I will be very upset if there is s spearmint taste. Will report back.

    Yeah I'm kind of disappointed with it. It's still a good snuff but it's not the same as the original.

    I've been living abroad for a year so I haven't bought it until recently so I didn't realise they had changed it.

    And there's definitely a spearmint smell to it..
  • I contacted My Smoking Shop.  They said they haven't changed the recipe, but there are seasonal variations due to it being an all natural tobacco.

    and people wonder why there aren't more unscented natural snuffs. Well these days people seem addicted to certainty and consistency.
  • My smoking shop told me the same thing about the recipe not changing. And it has been consistent for a long time, almost since it first came out.
  • Yeah,the recipe is consistent but the price is not!
