Nick & Johnny: Desert Green (Discontinued) Review. 3 May 2013.

This product has been discontinued and is no longer for sale.

What's interesting about this, is that it's one of VERY FEW times I've encountered a snus that tasted NOTHING like it's description. The product description says, "Green Spike Xtra Strong Portion from Nick And Johnny has a medium-bodied tobacco character and clear tones of cactus and citrus, wtih some hints of oriental spices and green grass. An extra strong snus with a full-volume pouch, moistened for a fast and robust flavor release." Well, I don't get any of that with this snus. That's not saying it's bad, it just doesn't taste like what I wanted it to taste like.

When you open the can, the aroma is an earthy smell with hints of sour apple. The taste is very interesting. It's just like a Green Apple Jolly Rancher candy. It's a sour green apple taste with a little earthy/tobacco flavor, but not much. So - that being said, it's not bad, just not what I expected. The taste is quite good, although it's not something I'd use full time. If you're a fan of Jolly Rancher though, check it out!
