“it is a fantastic little product and well worth trying at least once”
So I’ve tried something different today guys, Makla which in Arabic means food is a Tobacco product which hails from North Africa. However the one I tried is produced in Belgium by Sifaco’s. I tried Makla Red and here’s what I thought!
My first thoughts were on how small the tin is. On opening the tin you are greeted by a smell of tobacco and ammonia such is the case with American Dip and loose Snus. However this is much more like American dip.
I started by only placing a small amount under my lip and after only a few minutes I got a fantastic nicotine hit, which was very pleasant. The taste was as I expected, which was tobacco forward but it did taste like really good quality tobacco and had that nice old fashioned taste to it, after a few minutes I started to notice a spice like flavor coming through as well. I was really impressed actually.
However it does make you produce a lot of saliva and you do need to spit when using it so I would recommend just using a smallish amount and placing it in your bottom lip as to not spit the product it’s self out. I also recommend buying a mud jug or the likes if you intend to use this product regularly.
Overall it is a fantastic little product and well worth trying at least once. It personally won’t make it into my rotation as I do prefer American dip to this. And then obviously Swedish Snus portions.
I can see myself ordering another can one day when I fancy something different.
