Jakobssons Melon Strong Swedish Snus
Jakobsson’s Melon portion snus
We’ve actually been awaiting this release of Jakobsson’s Melon for quite some time and
we must say, this is probably one of the most intriguing snus flavors we’ve tested.
Jakobsson’s Melon is classed as an Original type portion which is a white portion that
goes thru an extra step at the end of the manufacturing process that adds a few extra
drops of water to each portion before it’s placed in the can. This extra moisture helps
the flavors to bind together with the tobacco and give you an immediate burst of flavor
when you place it in the lip. The portion material used in Jakobsson’s Melon is the same
soft material that’s used in all their snus flavors and is comfortable in the lip for over 2
hours. Each can of Jakobsson’s Melon has 20 portions with each having 14 mg. of

Taxes on Northerner in general:
Northerner is required by law to charge applicable tobacco/nicotine tax and sales tax for online orders. Where these taxes apply, the order total during your checkout will be updated and reflect/include taxes. Shipping charges are in general also subject to sales tax in most states.
How is the tobacco/nicotine tax calculated?
State Excise Tax (SET), also referred to as “tobacco/nicotine tax”, is applied in accordance with applicable state and local laws. For tobacco products, all states apply SET, however for Tobacco-Free products most states do not apply any SET.
The way SET is calculated depends on the product category (Tobacco or Tobacco-Free) and the state, and are calculated in one of the following ways:
- based on a % of the wholesale price (cost) to Northerner
- based on Northerner selling price to the customer
- based on weight (per selling unit)
How is the sales tax calculated?
Northerner calculates the sales tax in accordance with applicable state and local laws. Current rates can be found here: State Sales Tax Rates - Sales Tax Institute
Example: Customer shipping address is in California:
SET rate California = 56,93%
Sales tax rate California = 7.25%
Wholesale Cost per can = $3.00
Selling price to customer = $3.99;
SET per can = $3.00 * 0,5693 = $1.71;
Sales tax per can = ($3.99 + $1.71) * 0.0725 = $0.41
Selling price to customer + SET + Sales Tax = Final price to Customer (per can):
$3.99 + $1.71 + $0.41 = $6.11
