The folks over at V2 Tobacco were kind enough to send me a sample of their make your own snus kit known as the SnusX Bucket. I was sent the portioned version, which means that the snus comes pre packaged in portion material, and is ready for flavoring and water to be added. For lovers of loose snus, a loose variety of the bucket is also available for sale on Northerner.
[Update: My experience with the SnusX kit]
The instructions on how to make the snus are as follows (from the Northerner SnusX page):
How to make SnusX:
Add water (and flavour if you like) and keep in refrigerator for 3 days.
How much water do I add?
If you want to make the whole SnusX bucket add 170-190 ml (in total with flavour) depending on how dry/moist you want your snus.
During the water adding process the bags should be gently turned around.
For one regular can (24 portion):
8-10 ml (in total with flavour) depending on how dry / moist you want your snus. A regular (empty) snus can is included.
If you want to add flavour, you should do it together with the water.
Add around 8-16 ml flavour (for the whole bucket – 240 gram) depending on how strong you want the flavour. The amount of flavour is deducted from the amount of water (170-190ml).
The different aroma flavours can be mixed!
My package of SnusX came with the following flavor extracts:
- Red fruit & Berry
- Brandy Alexander
- Citrus (This one smells delicious!)
I am looking forward to trying my hand at making some different flavors of snus. Once I follow the steps and make a trial batch, I will be posting my efforts and results results here on Snus Authority. Right now I am thinking of making some kind of fruit and wintergreen combination, or perhaps a citrus flavored snus!
