Jakobsson’s – Äpple & Skogsbär

“It smells exactly like apple candy”

Hello friends!

I’m about to review the Jakobsson’s – Äpple och Skogsbär (translation: Apple and Berries)

Jakobsson’s have, as I’ve said before, the gift to make every can representative and recognition for the brand. You can look at every can they’ve ever made, and be like “Yepp, that’s a Jakobsson’s”. And I like that! That means that they have made the effort for making every can unique, but still representative for what they make. I admire that.

The can…
The background of the can is orange, but not as an typical orange. It’s more like an autumn-colored orange. So you will for sure have the right feeling for a walk in the woods! Everything else is more common to Jakobsson’s other cans – The golden brand logo, with the white cursive flavor stamp under it. It’s like to watch a painting you really enjoy!

So once I opened the can, a sweet smell breezed out of it. It smells exactly like apple candy. Not the green sour apples (Think they are called Granny Smith?), but the sweet apples that you have in a pie. Hehe, anyhow! The bags are pretty moist, and are in a need of adjustments before you put it under your lip. Once I’ve put a pouch under the lip, I feel a sweet taste spread in the mouth – yes, the candy taste. This far in, it seriously don’t feels like I have a pouch under the lip. But, as from earlier experiences, I know this isn’t the lasting feeling. So, after about 30 minutes the nicotine kicks in. It’s not too strong, and not too sweet. It has a nice balance.

You can easy have it in for an hour and a half, and it is a pretty comfortable pouch to have in. You don’t need to adjust it after a while, as you may have to do with several other pouches.

I recommend this snus for anyone. But if you’re not a fan of flavored snus, don’t try it – cause of all the snus I’ve tried, this easy makes it to the top 3 of flavored.

Overall, I’m giving this a 

Until next time,
Robin

Jakobsson’s Wintergreen Strong

“an acquired North American taste”

Jakobsson’s Wintergreen Strong snus is an entry in Gotlandsnus’s premium Jakobsson’s snus line. For those of you who are not familiar with wintergreen, it is a flavor that is popular in North America that is derived from certain evergreen trees and is reminiscent of mint. Wintergreen is a strong flavor, and is typically used to cover less preferential tastes. This often means that most products that use it have such a large amount that the taste is simply overpowering. Basically, something that once was excruciatingly awful was “wintergreened” until it was only mildly awful, sort of minty, and made your breath smell nice. This made it a perfect flavoring for American oral tobacco (and mouthwash!) since “snuff” tastes somewhat like burnt twigs to the uninitiated. Hence, I was pretty hesitant to review this product since I can’t remember ever enjoying a wintergreen product.

Jakobsson’s Wintergreen Strong Snus, however, does wintergreen right. Since snus’s innate tobacco flavor is not strong, the wintergreen flavoring in this snus does not need to overpower. Instead, there is a mild and sweet wintergreen flavor that delightfully tingles the lips and gums and compliments the subtle smoky tobacco flavor of the snus. Personally, this snus gives me flash-backs of Lifesaver’s mints and Listerine mouthwash, and Wintergreen is not even close to my favorite flavor, but I do enjoy this particular snus.

This is a strong snus, and you can certainly feel the nicotine, but it doesn’t assault you. The nicotine hits quickly in the first half a minute or so, but never seems to dominate. I feel the nicotine level off after about fifteen minutes and disappear after twenty to twenty-five minutes.  Users that prefer a rush out of their snus may want to try something stronger, however those comfortable with mild snuses will not be overwhelmed.

Overall, this is a solid snus that easily gets a The only drawbacks I see to this snus are that it is extremely moist and drips quite quickly. Wintergreen is, arguably, an acquired North American taste, and some people may not like using a snus that reminds them of the last time they brushed their teeth. However, as wintergreen goes, this is the best tobacco product I have had. I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone who enjoys wintergreen as well as anyone who enjoys trying new flavors.

Jakobsson’s Strong Cola

“the cola flavor hit you directly, like immediately”

Do you get these nostalgic trips after you smell something?
Can you feel how it used to be when you were young and the same smell or taste hit you?
THAT IS WHAT JAKOBSSON’S STRONG COLA IS!
At first sight when I got the package… to be honest, I wasn’t really sure if I wanted to try out this thing. I mean… Snus with Cola flavor? Sounds pretty bad!
But after glaring at the snusbox for about 10 minutes, I opened it…
The smell that hit me, it was like something taken from my childhood and put into that box. I’m not talking about that cola flavor from different sodas…
I’m talking about that real cola flavor. That flavor that is in candy (Swedish candy).
I got astound by the smell, it was so nice, not only could you feel the cola but there was also a hint of tobacco in it which actually, for some reason, fitted in perfectly.
I looked at the bags and they layed there, perfectly portioned, a bit moisture (remember this isn’t a white snus, so you want the moistured part). I picked one up and threw it in my mouth.
Once it was under the lip the cola flavor hit you directly, like immediately.
The cola flavor is dominant, even 10 minutes in… The only difference is, the nicotine is playing with you. Seeing how this is a strong snus, you can really feel the strength of it.
I’m used to use strong snus, but this snus was actually really strong for me, I could even feel a bit of soft nicotine kick, which was amazing.
After 30 minutes in, you can still taste the cola flavor, so it’s not like chewing gum with taste, where you throw them out after chewing for 5 minutes.
Also a thing to mention about this particular snus is that besides from the little hatch (where you put your used snus) being to small, the actual box is pretty sweet looking.
I could feel the ride coming to an end after about one hour. The snus got shrinked up and as we say in Sweden, “turned into a snail”.
This brand is something worth trying, not only is it one of a kind but the taste and strength of the snus is insane.
