Jakobssons Mint Strong
Jakobsson’s Mint portion snus
Introduced by Gotlandssnus in 2011, Jakobsson’s Mint has quickly become one of the most popular Mint flavored snus brands available. Jakobsson’s Mint is classed as an
Original type portion which means that the portions are a bit more moist that a White
type portion and will release it’s flavor much faster. The portions themselves are made
from the same soft, tea bag type material that Gotlands uses for all their portion snus
and is really comfortable in the lip for over 2 hours, which is pretty good since the
average Swede keeps a portion in for half that! Each can of Jakobsson’s Mint contains
20 portions with approximately 14 mg of Nicotine per portion. The cans are made from
white plastic with the signature Jakobsson’s compass embossed around the catch lid.
While the can is cool, you’re here for the flavor review so, let’s push on!

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
