First off I’d like to begin this post by wishing all Snus Authority readers a happy New Year! 2011 was an exciting year for snus fans, with many new brands and flavors being released. Likewise, 2012 is already shaping up to be a great year for those who enjoy snus. Here’s a quick rundown of some of the new brands of snus that are in the process of being released.
After holding a contest to bring back their Brandy Alexander flavor, V2 Tobacco has announced that the contest has ended, and that they will be bringing back their Brandy Alexander flavor sometime in the near future. Also, the V2 Coffee Supreme snus will be coming returning as Offroad Coffee Supreme, giving coffee fans something to cheer about. On the downside, V2 plans to retire their Chrome series of snus sometime in the near future, so I suggest stocking up on the chrome series now if you’re a fan.
In addition to the new snuses being released by V2, the folks over at Gotlandssnus have introduced a new flavor called Jakobssons Melon. I’ve never had a melon flavored snus before, but it sounds delicious and I look forward to giving it a try! I’m a big fan of the fruity apple flavor of Gotlandssnus Green, so I have a feeling that I’m going to really like the taste of the new melon flavor. Jakobssons Melon is a strong portioned snus, and has 14mg of nicotine per 1 gram pouch.
Finally, Taboca AS has introduced a new variety of snus, the Taboca White Extra Strong Portion. It is described as being “a white, extra strong portion snus. Tobacco flavor with hints of bergamot. A bold, distinctive packaging distinguish from other, traditional brands.” I enjoy having tobacco flavored snus along with coffee, and this extra strong variety seems like it just may give me the kick I need to start my day off right! As an extra strong variety of snus, I imagine that it will have between 16 and 22mg of nicotine per 1 gram pouch.
Expect some reviews for these great new flavors sometime in the coming weeks!
