There are some GREAT tools available for folks looking to quit dipping these days. I’m happy to announce another new player to the smokeless alternative / fake dip market known as Triumph Chew – www.triumphchew.com. Triumph currently offers 4 flavors including Wintergreen, Mint, Cinnamon and Classic. They also 3 different “strengths” including Zero (non-nicotine), Half and Full.
PLEASE NOTE: This review ONLY pertains to the NICOTINE FREE version of these products. I have not, and will not try the versions of this product that contain nicotine.
All versions of Triumph Chew are available in their online store. You can get single cans, 5 and 10 packs of a single strength, 10 packs of a single flavor in multiple strengths a sampler of all 4 flavors in a single strength.
Wintergreen Triumph Chew
Great smell upon opening and got a nice full can of chew. TONS of moisture upon opening which is really quite nice. Outstanding flavor with a nice burn as well. As a former Kodiak Wintergreen guy this is a bit “sweeter” than I’d like, but it’s a very nice alternative. Outstanding spitability with just a ton of dark brown spit. As I kept it in for a while (25+ minutes) I realized it may have been a bit TOO much burn for my taste, but that would have been mitigated by taking it out a bit sooner as it seems that the heat intensifies as the chew goes on. I did have a couple of “chunky” bits in there which reminded me of Hawken back in the day. The plastic can is a bit flimsy. I didn’t, but if I’d had it in my pack pocket and sat on it I may have had and issue.
Mint Triumph Chew
Great mint flavor here. Same characteristics as the Wintergreen which is a good thing. I like that it tastes different enough from the Wintergreen that you can tell a difference. There are many times that you simply can’t taste the difference between say mint, spearmint, wintergreen, etc.
Classic Triumph Chew
Once again, great spitability and a ton of saliva generated. These cans really are super full which I appreciate and have the nicotine strength CLEARLY marked on the can. That’s a very good thing especially for someone like me who’s so anti-nicotine. Like the Wintergeen, this Classic has a little too much “bite” for my tastes, but still a damn find classic chew. This reminds me taste wise of Skoal Straight as it’s got a very “warm” flavor to it.
Cinnamon Triumph Chew
Once again a good flavor, outstanding spitability and packing. I’m not typically a cinnamon fan but this one is nice. Many times with cinnamon chews I feel like I’ve walked into Santa’s Workshop or a Michael’s Craft Shop on a Sunday afternoon, but this version is not overwhelming. It still has the “spice” kicked up a notch.
All four flavors tested (Wintergreen, Mint, Cinnamon & Classic) have outstanding spitability, long lasting flavor and a great texture. The cans, while a tad on the flimsy side for my liking, are nice and full and the product packs well. I don’t have an ingredients list yet (I’m working on it and will update this post when possible) but I’m guessing there’s some cayenne pepper in there to give it some “kick” which for my taste buds was a bit on the hot side after keeping my chew in for 25+ minutes.
Triumph Chew is another smokeless alternative that offers versions of their products that contain nicotine. I’d warn anyone who’s getting these to truly understand which version of the product they’re getting and I’d urge them to go with the nicotine free product. Thankfully, Triumph does a GREAT job with their labeling so you know just what strength you’re getting.
As of this review, Triumph is offering FREE SHIPPING on every order. Not sure if this is a promo or that’s going to be their policy moving forward, but that truly does set them apart and makes Triump a very affordable fake dip.
Special thanks to Dustin and Lauren from Triumph Chew for providing me samples to try and review.
