Jakobsson's Melon (Strong) - Review. 12 January 2012.
I can't believe it's been 6 years since this product launched. It seems like just yesterday I tried it for the first time. After this product launched, the melon flavor really took off; It seems like every company makes them now. But Jakobsson's Melon was the one that really made the flavor popular. The Gotlandssnus product line recently went through a redesign, so I figured it was time to revisit this review. I did like the old can design, but I do find this new look to be quite sleek and stylish! The flavor description for this product says, "The characteristic taste of melon, with elements of pear and sweetness." This product comes in a 20 gram can with 20 portions for 1 gram portion. The nicotine content is 14mg/g (1.4%) which breaks down to 14mg/portion.
Bubble Yum: Watermelon (Bubble Gum), this product smells and tastes a lot like that one. The portions are moderately moist; they have a quick release of flavor, but seem to last longer than most other original portions. The taste is a sweet taste of melon. Much like with the aroma, it's mostly watermelon. However, I feel like I can dig a little cantaloupe out of it. The nicotine strength feels to be firmly at the strong level. It feels stronger than a regular strength, but not quite as strong as an extra strong. The flavor lasts a pretty good amount of time; on average this one usually lasts me about 50-55 minutes.
This snus has a sweet, fresh, fruity taste. If you don't like a lot of sweetness in your snus, you may not like this one. But if you like a sweeter snus with a fruit flavor, this one may be right up your alley!
