Unlike its name suggests, Oliver Twist is not chewed. Instead, like dip, the bits are simply inserted between the lip and gum and left to absorb through the mouth. Unlike most dipping tobacco products (especially the American varieties, such as Skoal), however, Oliver Twist is not loose, but rather formed into a cylindrical plug for easier clean-up and more discreet consumption. The pellets are very small, approximately 1 cm by .5 cm and are made from a single leaf.
As the product's description reads on its packaging:
Smokeless tobacco. Keep between cheek and gum - don't chew - its long lasting flavor gives you discreet tobacco satisfaction without expectorating. When the taste is gone, the pellet is easily removed.
Currently, Oliver Twist is available in various flavors: Tropical (flavored with anise), Black (flavoured with salmiak liquorice), Royal (flavored with English licorice), Sunberry (blackcurrant-flavored), Eucalyptus, Mint, Citrus, Wintergreen, Arctic, Bergamot and Original (sweet licorice).
Oliver Twist chewing tobacco contains natural nicotine content which in such small portions is classed as a ‘weak’ form of dip. The tobacco’s flavours are well known for its long lasting taste thus being enriched with sugar.
