Our 02 Original Strong Portion Review
A completely new and innovative snus brand released by Swedish Match in October 2009 and made in Gothenburg, Sweden, 02 Strong portion snus is classified as a Regular type portion snus. As you remember from our other reviews, Regular type portions go thru an additional step in the manufacturing process that adds a bit more moisture to each. This additional moisture helps the flavors meld together and bring them out faster when in the lip. 02 Strong is also made from a new snus formula that is basically run free! The portion material Swedish Match uses for 02 Strong is the same soft, teabag type material they use in all their snus and is comfortable in the lip for over 2 hours. What adds to the comfort is an innovative new portion shape that’s a bit longer than the standard portion and a bit thinner as well. This longer, thinner shape helps to keep the portion in place better and is actually more discreet. Each can of 02 Strong portion snus has 24, one gram portions with each having 13 mg of Nicotine. 02 Strong’s can is a basic, silver colored, plastic can with a clear plastic label that seals the lid to the bottom until you open it. Swedish Match also simplified the label and added 5 different icons that explain weight, portion size, strength, drip rate and flavor which is basically a new feature in the snus world! There is a used portion compartment in the lid, under the red “02” but, you’re also here for the flavor of this brand new snus brand so, let’s take a look. Swedish Match created 02 Strong in the same fashion they created it’s sibling 01 Original as a snus designed by the snus world, for the snus world. They accomplished this by taking all the suggestions they received from their test panel and created a brand around it. The flavor of 02 Strong is the same as 01 Original which is a fresh tobacco taste with nothing else. What we taste are the light flavors of the high quality tobaccos, hand selected from all corners of the globe along with a bit of salt and a hint of pepper but, we associate this to the higher Nicotine content. We can say this because the peppery hints are not in 01 Original. What we mean by light is that the overall flavor of 02 Strong is of pure tobacco but the flavor is not as prominent as most regular type portions due to the lack of juice from the “No Drip” formula. We think that 02 Strong portion snus would be great for the beginning strong snus user due to the light taste and low juice factor as well as an everyday snus for the experienced strong snus user for the same reason but, we want to know what you think! So, why not give a can or two of 02 Strong portion snus to your next order and leave us a review of your own to let us know what you think! We’ll be waiting to read your thoughts!
