Oden's Lime Extra Stark - Review. 30 October 2013.

Review Updated: 11 November 2020

Lime isn't a common flavor in the world of snus.  Really, the only company that has explored that category is GN Tobacco.  As an avid beer lover, I enjoy pairing snus with beer, and nothing beats a lime flavored snus with an IPA!  While I was working on this review, I paired it with Cigar City's Jai Alai IPA, and Founders' All Day IPA, and it went great with both of them.  When it comes to this snus, the flavor description says "A extra strong portion with a taste of lime."  Each can weighs 20g and has 20 portions, for plump 1g portions.  The nicotine content is listed at SnusMe.com as 18mg/g (1.8%), which would be around 18mg/portion!

When you open the can, a present, tart flavor of lime greets you along with a hint of earthy tobacco.  The portions are plump, moist, comfortable, and come with a quick release of flavor.  The flavor profile is a natural, tart taste of lime accompanied by an earthy tobacco flavor in the background.  The nicotine feels to be between strong and extra strong; it has an extra kick, but it's not too crazy.  The flavor, on average, lasts about 40-45 minutes.

Rating and Final Thoughts

This one comes in at 3.46 out of 5 for me.  It isn't something I could use full time, due to the strength, but it's definitely a good beer pairing snus, that's for sure.  The lime flavor is a nice compliment to a good IPA!

In terms of lime, there aren't many lime flavored snus products out there.  If you have an itch for the lime flavor and like a stronger nicotine kick, you may enjoy this one!


  1. Do you think that the Extreme is to fit in with their new line of products? Seems to blend in much better. The Extra Stark almost seems old.
