"two simple words “xtra strong” - perfect match."
This review will be about U Sample No5 white portion - not only an original pouch, but also a chewing pouch. And honestly, ten fingers to God, I was a bit concerned of this one. Not about the pouch itself, but about the chewing part. Cause for me, to chew a pouch has been kind of taboo. I prefer to just have it under the lip, like a membrane to the gum.
But my best friend always says that no one remembers a chicken. So, who am I not to listen to my best friend? (don’t tell him that I said that)
After inspecting the can, I must say that it is something about it that makes it hard not to look at it. I don’t know if it is because of the red text, or the big U. But it sure is something about it! One other thing that really got my attention was two simple words “xtra strong” - perfect match.
So, once opening the can, you could feel the bergamot sting in your nose. And if you’ve read my previous reviews, you probably understand that I really enjoy it. Bergamot is always a winning concept if you want a lovely snus (at least in my book!) I decided that I would try the first pouch the old-fashioned way, under the lip. And yes, it is pretty packed, and the bags are thicker than an original. Not sure if they really are, but it sure does feel like it.
It takes about 55 minutes for it to release the nicotine, and holy smokes, it’s a strong snus. You feel the citrus-bergamot mixed flavour. And it bonds together, like a hand in a glove! It last for another hour and half, then it starts to lose intense. And it is really, really good. I would almost call it delicious!
And now, the concerned part. It’s finally time to test the chewing part of it. And after reading instructions on how to chew it, I began to chew it very gentle. And it didn’t take long for the nicotine to kick in. We aren’t talking even 20 minutes. But wow, this was now a totally new snus. It runs pretty much, but not too much. And it’s even stronger now than before. But the downside of it, is that it didn’t last that long now. It almost made an hour extra though. But I must say, that the experience made me impressed. My concern is now an conviction – chewing snus is snus 2.0.
BRAVO to the makers of it - I’m giving it a
