Göteborgs Rapé is one of my all time favorite snus. It’s the snus I began using back in the day.
I remember buying my first box (when I was still underaged) and the cashier asked me if I wanted the regular one and I said yes. Little did I know was that “regular” meant loose snus. You know the snus that doesn’t come in pouches, but the one that you have to hand bake yourself. When I left the store and realised I got the wrong one I panicked, but I took courage and went back to exchange the box for the one I wanted. Luckily enough, there wasn’t a problem. Since then Göteborgs Rapé has always been there for me. Although it’s not the one I regularly use I will always have it as my number 1.
That’s why I was thrilled that I got to try the Göteborgs Rapé Limited Edition 2018. It has the classic tobacco taste but with a touch of swedish berries. When opening the box you can feel a sweet scent of blueberries with a hint of vanilla and citrus. Indeed a real swedish summer snus! The size of the pouches are regular to the original Göteborgs Rapé.
This is supposed to be a quite stronger snus, it contains more nicotine. But honestly I can’t really feel a difference, the nicotine kicks in as it should after about 5 minutes and settles fine under the lip. I could have it in for about 45 minutes before it got too moist and drippy.
Because of my history with this particular snus, I prefer the classic and original one (well okay, my favorite is the slim pouches). But I am always open to trying new flavours, and I enjoy the innovative ideas the creators of the snus comes up with.
