What's the difference between Mint Snuff Chew and Mint Snuff Pouches?

Mint Snuff Chew is a non-tobacco chew made of mint instead of tobacco which has helped thousands of tobacco users quit tobacco. It contains no salt, no sugar, no nicotine, is tobacco free and is safe to eat. You put a pinch in your lip. It's sticky, but safe. Available in four flavors: Original Mint, Wintergreen, Cinnamon and Spearmint.

Mint Snuff Pouches are miniature teabags filled with mint and crystallized mint oil or other wintergreen. Mint Snuff Pouches are the perfect alternative to cigarettes and smokeless tobacco and they freshen your breath, too! The next time you reach for a cigarette, Pop a Pouch, instead! Pouches are available in Original Long-Lasting Mint and Wintergreen. They are a convenient breath freshener because one pouch can last up to one hour, are virtually invisible to others and do not interfere with conversation.

Commonly asked questions about Mint Snuff products:

How do I use Mint Snuff All Mint Chew?
Place a pinch between your cheek and gums and enjoy a refreshing, satisfying dip that leaves your breath with a pleasant minty taste. The juices are safe to swallow and the "dip" can be eaten or spit out. Since Mint Snuff's moistness comes from Maltitol, it does not promote tooth decay. (Maltitol is a sugar-free solution derived from corn syrup that does not promote tooth decay. That's why so many dentists recommend Mint Snuff.) If you are trying to help someone quit tobacco, please visit and learn how dentists, hygienists and other health professionals are using Mint Snuff to help their patients quit tobacco!

How do I use Mint Snuff All Mint Pouches?
Place a pouch between your cheek and gums and let the Mint Oil crystals slowly dissolve. Within a few seconds you will notice a burst of mint flavor! Pouches are a healthy alternative to Skoal Bandits and Skoal Flavor Packs. (Skoal, Skoal Bandits, and Skoal Flavor Packs are registered trademarks of U.S. Tobacco, Inc., Greenwich, CT.) Warning: Mint Pouches are extremely strong. If you experience mint-discomfort, discontinue use.

Where can I find Mint Snuff products in the Store?
You will find Mint Snuff in the tobacco section of the store right next to regular chewing tobacco. Mint Snuff comes in a convenient, bright green shipper/display box, 12 cans per roll.

Can minors purchase Mint Snuff?
Mint Snuff is legally for sale to all ages. The decision of whether a store will sell to a minor is made by the store manager. None of Mint Snuff's advertising imagery is aimed at getting kids to start chewing, period. Mint Snuff is advertised on national television, radio and other media as a healthy alternative to tobacco. A twenty-year study by a nationally known cancer research hospital hypothesizes that if a minor receives tobacco education and uses Mint Snuff instead of tobacco chews, he won't get addicted to nicotine and therefore won't graduate to cigarettes!

Many grocery, convenience stores, and pharmacies stock Mint Snuff All Mint Chew and All Mint Pouches.

Any new or interesting uses for the Mint Snuff Pouches?
Yes! We have learned that the Pouches have been used for many purposes...

In a smoking cessation program: A newspaper columnist from Virginia, Jack Kestner, saw one of our television ads on 60 Minutes. He came up with his own plan to quit smoking! His plan first switches the smoker from cigarettes to Skoal Bandits or Flavor Packs (both registered trademarks of UST, Inc.). This changes the smoker's behavior from reaching for a cigarette to get his nicotine to that of reaching for a pouched product to get his nicotine. After that behavior has been changed, the user can then switch to the non-tobacco, non-nicotine, Mint Snuff Pouches. Dr. Brad Rodu, has a similar program which includes Pouches as the exit strategy. Rodu's article entitled For Smokers Only, appeared nationally in newspapers.

As a mouth moistener: Many doctors have told us that the Pouches seem to stimulate saliva thus offering some relief to minor cases of dry mouth, a side effect of some medications. Athletes have also reported that the Pouches seem to keep their mouths feeling less dry especially when they are exercising.

As a breath freshener:  Pouches make a very appealing breath freshener. Within just a few seconds after placing a Pouch between your cheek and gum, you will begin to taste the refreshing mint flavor that can last for up to an hour. Unlike other candy breath fresheners or gum, you can talk without anyone knowing you have something in your mouth. It's virtually invisible to anyone looking at you and they will never guess you have something in your mouth. Pouches are perfect for coffee breath, garlic breath, beer breath and cigarette breath.

Is the Oregon Mint Snuff Company ANTI-TOBACCO?
No, we're not. We support a person's individual right to make his own health decisions and tobacco-use decisions. If someone wants to gamble with his health and use cigarettes or smokeless tobacco, we believe it's their right to do so. It is not our goal to scare you into quitting tobacco. However, some of the graphic pictures on  do make a compelling argument to help you make
YOUR OWN DECISION to quit because tobacco use can cause cancer. We provide the means to help folks quit--a healthy tobacco alternative-- and leave the anti-tobacco health crusades to those who feel so inclined. For instance, Dr. Dan Laizure of Walla Walla, Washington took his crusade against tobacco to a local rodeo and received a lot of exposure for his dental practice! He cares about his patients' health and future patients as well! Thousands of private and military dental practices throughout the country give out free samples of Mint Snuff to their patients. Mint Snuff is displayed at the annual conventions of the American Dental Association, the American Dental Hygienists Association, and various regional and state dental and hygienist associations. Various chapters of the American Cancer Society also give out samples of Mint Snuff as do various county health departments.

Who owns the Oregon Mint Snuff Company?
The company is owned and managed by the inventor of Mint Snuff Chew and Mint Snuff Pouches who had a pre-cancerous lip condition from chewing tobacco and invented Mint Snuff Chew to help himself quit tobacco. The Oregon Mint Snuff Company is a small, niche-market company positioned as a healthy tobacco alternative. The company was founded in 1986. The Oregon Mint Snuff Company dominates the non-tobacco chew category because our quality products are produced in our own manufacturing plant. Please email any comments or suggestions to
