“all the clouds scattered from the sky and the sun was shining with its sweetest beams”
Göteborgs Rapé XR (X-range)
The first time I tried Göteborgs Rapé XR I was skeptical. It was from my favourite brand Swedish Match – Göteborgs Rapé that I had used for a couple of years, but the XR snus was new to me.
I asked myself, why would I want a slimmer pouch? What did they mean with ”large”? And for the love of god, why is it named x-range? I almost felt like a cowboy trying it the first time as the name took me to the old west a few hundred years back.
But then I saw it, the most beautiful words I have ever read on a box of snus. I had in my hand the reality of my greatest dreams as a snusare: ”Minimal Drip”. Could this really be true?
As soon as I put a pouch under my lip, it felt like all the clouds scattered from the sky and the sun was shining with its sweetest beams on me. I saw angels coming down with harps, flying around me playing their heavenly tunes. It was truly a hallelujah-moment!
Rape XR is what you are looking for if you prefer snus with minimal drip! You can have the pouch in for ca 30 minutes (longer if you’re not talking).
The taste reminds you of the wild nature with a woody character and a small hint of citrus with lavendel blossom. This is the finest of the finest. Enjoy!

“Reminds me of my grandmother’s kitchen”
So one of the things I really like about all the snuses made by Göteborgs rapé is the presentation of the snus inside the can.
On opening the can you can smell that lovely lingonberry smell straight away followed up by a light lemon smell with some floral hints. The smell makes me hungry and reminds me of my grandmother’s kitchen.
This snus tastes as good as it smells, upon putting it under your lip you can instantly taste the lingonberry followed by some lemon notes and then that great Göteborgs original tobacco and herbal flavor. However, this snus also has a sweetness to it which can be quite nice.
This snus really stands apart from the others and is well worth trying.

“Sleep when you’re dead”
Brewing beer is my favorite hobby that has evolved from a pastime to a career for me. I’m a co-founder of a microbrewery in Toronto called Pint Pursuits Brewing Co. I also love bikes of all sorts – downhill racing, trails, BMX…
My go-to snus is General G.3 Extra Strong Slim White. Great feel, perfect strength, and no-nonsense flavor! A close second that I like to mix into the lineup is Göteborgs Rapé Lingon. So tasty!
My first snus experience:
My first experience with snus was during a round of disc-golf (throwing Frisbees into a metal net). I had never heard of it, and am now glad that it is catching on in Canada!
Favorite Life Hack:
Warm beer? Throw a wet paper towel around it, pop it in the freezer for 5 minutes, and voila, ice cold.
A quote that sums up my view on life:
Not sure who said this, but, “Sleep when you’re dead.” Too much to do and experience.
