What is the difference between Skoal Xtra and regular Skoal?


I've been buying the Skoal Xtra since it's available in a trial package for $1.89. It's decent; however, I normally dip Copenhagen. The regular Skoal is like $4. And the retail price of the "Xtra" is $2.49. This leads me to believe that there might be a quality difference thus I bought the $4 can of regular Skoal, and I really like it.

Can anyone give a comparison of the Xtra to Skoal? Why is the Xtra cheaper?

Never tried skoal. Cope Wintergreen for me. I tried grizzly wintergreen, but much rather cope. What do you find the difference is betwee cope and skoal? Copenhagen also has trial packages right now.

I believe maybe it dries out more easily. My go-to is Skoal but if I have 2-3 bucks in my pocket sometimes I'll get a Grizzly can or Skoal Xtra.

Mostly I think it's just to compete on a price level with Cope and Grizz. The first pinch out of the can is comparable but my theory is it doesn't hold up as well over a couple days.

I dunno but I really need to quit. I feel like I'm going to need to be locked in a room for 2 weeks straight in order to do so.

Cope and Skoal straight are worlds apart. I really am not a Cope fan in any way shape or form.

That stuff tastes awful. Classic is even worse

Skoal is the best.

What do you find the differences are in them? I found grizzle to be more moist than cope.

I can't speak on the specifics of Cope because I've done it so rarely.

Skoal Xtra (starting out) to me was just some different flavors. But to compare Skoal to Grizz I think it's just a softer lip to put in. It's really hard to describe and comes down to preference.

I can't tell someone to dip one over the other except when it comes to Cope. Every can of Cope has this awful taste to it that I just can't describe.

I'll accept Cope only when I need it in a pinch ;)

Can't lip it as long, it gets mushy and doesn't hold up

Ohhh, OK. That makes sense.

Also, it seems to get drier more quickly than normal Skoal.

Copenhagen is definitely more compacted, it seems like it's a little less moist. And it has a slightly different taste. There's definitely a difference, but it's not substantial to me.
