NOTE: This was the flavor they used from 2012-2015. This flavor was replaced in 2016 with a new taste profile. You can check out that review here. (LINK TO REVIEW)
I've been wanting to review this snus for almost a week now, but I've had a terrible cold and without all my senses intact - particularly taste and smell - I didn't want to attempt to review this and miss something. So, sorry for the delay. But I'm back up and 100% and ready to talk snus. Must be the humidity here, I've been catching colds left and right this summer. As you know - Gotlandssnus has released a limited edition this summer called Sommarsnus, or Summer Snus. The description at BuySnus describes it as, "Snus with Sweden's most popular summer flavor: smultron, the wild strawberry growing in Swedish forests during summer. This original portion snus by Gotlandssnus will only be available for a very short time, so make sure to place your order in time! Orders for whole rolls are being sent in a neat and summerly box." The box is a pretty cool little addition to for those of you who collect snus swag. Moving along, let's get into the review.
You're probably thinking the same thing I was when I first heard about this snus. What the hell is a smultron? To me, it originally sounded likes some kind of Transformer, but it's actually a wild strawberry that grows in forests in Sweden in the summertime.
Sommarsnus is a limited edition, so if you want to pick some up - add a few extra cans to throw in the freezer. Once it's gone, it's gone. If you buy a roll, as I mentioned earlier, you get a neat little box. For those like me who collect snus swag - it's a pretty cool addition to your collection.
