Did you know that Sweden is one of the biggest coffee drinking country in the world?
We love that hot, roasted dark drink more than anything, and we’re proud of it! Maybe it’s because of the winters we have, the long season of darkness when we rarely see the sunlight. We need our coffee to get us through the days.
Also, ”fika”, is something we do very often; meeting up at a café to hang out, drink coffee or tea and eat a cinnamon bun or a cookie. I love the concept, it’s so easy yet so cozy.
That’s why I was thrilled to try coffee-flavoured snus. How could you go wrong with that? Actually though, this snus smells more like sweet hot chocolate, or sweet latte of some sort. I don’t drink latte anymore, that was the young Sara who just started drinking coffee and didn’t know any better (not hating on you latte-lovers out there).
Since the pouches are mini I had to take two at a time to fill my quota. Kapten Café Mini White Portion don’t taste that much of coffee to be honest, but in some way they complement my morning cup very well. I don’t think I will use these any other time except for when I drink coffee, that means the pouches get wet faster so I could only keep them in for about 30 minutes. The amount of nicotine is 5mg/g, which is a normal amount and I felt it kick in after ten minutes or so. Or maybe it was the coffee that made me more alert, I don’t know… maybe the combination?
I had pretty high hopes for this snus, and I was a bit disappointed. But hey, nothing is as good as a fresh cup of black coffee and a classic tobacco pouch. I will stick with that 🙂
As you can tell by the name these pouches are small. I have not used mini-snus since my first couple of years when I first started using snus. At that time we called it “tjejsnus” which in english translates to girl-snus. I think they started to make mini pouches so it would also be “appropriate” for girls to start buying and using it. Who gives an eff today, seriously? Everyone can and should use snus, since it’s delicious.
Offroad Melon Mini White Portion is a really good snus. I took two at the same time because otherwise it would disappear under my lip and get lost somewhere haha. I’m not that fond of snus with flavor anymore but this, I must say, is a hit. It smells like melon gum, it got that nice hint of classic tobacco and it sits well under the lip. White portion means minimal drip, the best kind of drip in my opinion.
I recently got the “privilege” to try extremely strong snus, so the Offroad was a real vacation so to speak. Beacause the pouches are smaller, ofcourse it will be less nicotine. But as I did take two at the same time I guess it’s more like a regular pouch. The nicotine kicked in after about 10 minutes or so, and I could keep it in for about 45 minutes.
I was thinking about writing a joke in the style of “oh, they really got offroad with this one” before trying it, but I have to say guys… this is gold.
The can is nice and simple in design like all Skruf Snus cans which I have come to appreciate over time.
On opening the can you are met by a beautiful Blackcurrant smell with hints of licorice as well, and tiny amounts of menthol being hinted at. It’s very pleasant and summery smell which I really enjoy.
When you pop a portion under your lip you are greeted by a nice cooling sensation and a pleasantly fruity Blackcurrant flavor witch isn’t too swee. It does taste natural and after a while you can notice the menthol esque flavors in the background but they are not overly noticeable and definitely don’t take away from the amazing Blackcurrant flavor. The flavor itself I found lasted for about an hour and barely produced a noticeable drip if any at all.
Now I myself do have a soft spot when it comes to Skruf as it was the first ever Snus I tried but I do tend to swing towards something with a fair bit more kick than this one in particular.
With all that said this still scores a comfortable
Remember when I said the Black Line snus was the strongest I’d ever tried? Forget you ever heard those words from me.
Siberia is one of the strongest snus there is. And holy moly, is it strong. I read somewhere that one pouch of Sibera equals five “regular” pouches, isn’t that crazy?!
I got to try the Siberia -80 Degrees White Dry Slim Portion, and I’m emphasizing on TRYING because I’m never going to be able to use this snus regularly. Just after a few minutes I felt like I’d gone mad, the nicotine got to my head so freaking fast. Also, you get that lip sting right away because it has a strong taste of mint. Which is really refreshing ofcourse, but gosh it burns! The pouches are, as the name states, white dry slim – which is my favorite kind so they get an extra plus for that.
It’s pretty clear why they call this snus Siberia, cause it certainly gets you thinking about the extremely harsh weather conditions in that area of Russia (even though I have never been there, I have actually played a totally awesome PC game called Siberia).
I never got to see how long I could keep it in before it got too moist, sorry about that guys.
You’ll just have to try it for yourself, if you dare.
The can have a very appealing clean look and feel to them which I really liked. Which features a cool wood like effect on the label.
On opening the can you are greeted by a wonderful crisp menthol flavor with a hint of sweet peppermint to it.
When you pop one under your lip you are greeted by a wonderful cooling sensation and a great taste of peppermint and menthol with undertones of licorice. The flavor lasts for about an hour which is pretty good. And I didn’t notice a drip for about an hour to an hour and 15 minutes.
Overall I was impressed with the flavor of this Snus but it did lack in the strength department for myself personally.
I give it a

Göteborgs Rapé is one of my all time favorite snus. It’s the snus I began using back in the day.
I remember buying my first box (when I was still underaged) and the cashier asked me if I wanted the regular one and I said yes. Little did I know was that “regular” meant loose snus. You know the snus that doesn’t come in pouches, but the one that you have to hand bake yourself. When I left the store and realised I got the wrong one I panicked, but I took courage and went back to exchange the box for the one I wanted. Luckily enough, there wasn’t a problem. Since then Göteborgs Rapé has always been there for me. Although it’s not the one I regularly use I will always have it as my number 1.
That’s why I was thrilled that I got to try the Göteborgs Rapé Limited Edition 2018. It has the classic tobacco taste but with a touch of swedish berries. When opening the box you can feel a sweet scent of blueberries with a hint of vanilla and citrus. Indeed a real swedish summer snus! The size of the pouches are regular to the original Göteborgs Rapé.
This is supposed to be a quite stronger snus, it contains more nicotine. But honestly I can’t really feel a difference, the nicotine kicks in as it should after about 5 minutes and settles fine under the lip. I could have it in for about 45 minutes before it got too moist and drippy.
Because of my history with this particular snus, I prefer the classic and original one (well okay, my favorite is the slim pouches). But I am always open to trying new flavours, and I enjoy the innovative ideas the creators of the snus comes up with.

Two new limited edition packages from Gotlandssnus filled with either 5 cans of Jakobsson’s Wintergreen strong or 5 cans of Jakobsson’s Mint Strong.
The new can design for this Snus is an improvement over the last one in my opinion, nicer to look at.
Once you open the can you are greeted by a fairly pleasant sweet peppermint smell, without any real hints of tobacco just the tiniest amount. But trust me it is there.
The portions themselves are nice and comfortable under your lip and deliver a lovely candy esque peppermint flavor which is quite nice. The flavor lasts and I found that these portions can last up to about an hour maybe just over. The portions deliver the nicotine hit fairly quickly and that is always a bonus.
This is a good all white Snus product with a nice nicotine strength of roughly 17.6mg a portion so not the strongest Snus you can get, but is the strongest all white Snus available.
