Nothing at all 'icy' or menthol with these pods
I'm giving three stars because I don't think there is necessarily a problem with the flavor - it just seems to be miss-titled. I thought that this flavor would be similar to a regular tobacco-like taste, with a hint of cooling menthol/mint. There is NO menthol/mint flavor at all with these... so if that is what you are looking for, don't buy these. There is none of that 'icy' cool sensation at the back of your throat like the regular menthol pods (or menthol cigarettes) provide. I would describe the flavor of these pods as VANILLA TOBACCO. There is a very vanilla-ish smoothness to these pods. If that is what you are looking for, you will LOVE These. Don't let the name of these pods fool you. If you are looking for a more traditional icy menthol, get the MENTHOL pods.
