ChickSnus - 4 Product Reviews! 21 February 2015.

I wrote a preview article about this a little while back after seeing them appear on Instagram, and today I got ahold of some cans to write a review about. If you check out their website, they say "A premium quality at the right price. For us at Chick Snus will always quality in the first place, which is something that permeates all of our products. We have put a lot of time to find the perfect tobacco blend, the perfect flavoring, the perfect humidity, and the ultimate size of the pouch. Chick Snus all products are made with carefully selected ingredients where to years of experience and a lot of care. The white medium portion is located in a designed box carefully designed to appeal to our customers. As icing on the cake, each box a unique animal print."  If you can't tell, these products are obviously designed with women in mind.  Over the years, there haven't been a massive amount of snus products designed for women.  Swedish Match's Catch line, Fiedler and Lundgren's Mocca line, and V2's (former) Fellinni line come to mind, but nothing really stands out in my mind like these cans.  These are very distinctively women.  The cans and portion size remind me a lot of Fiedler and Lundgren.  That being said, let's jump into the reviews.


Chick Snus Polar

The taste description says, "Have Healthy tobacco character that also reflects the box exterior."

When you open a can of Chick Snus Polar the aroma that comes through is a mild tobacco smell with a light hint of menthol/eucalyptus.  The portions are mini/white portions, so the flavor takes a little bit to develop, but lasts a little longer than an original portion.  There is a mild cooling sensation that comes through when you put a portion in your lip, and a mild taste of menthol/eucalyptus with a slight touch of salt and a gentle tobacco taste in the background.  It reminds me a lot of Catch Dry Eulcayptus White Mini if I had to compare it to anything.

Chick Snus Original


The taste description says, "Have a plump vine-ripened tobacco character."

When you open a can of Chick Snus Original, the aroma that comes through is a very mild tobacco smell.  The portions are mini/white portions, so the flavor takes a little bit to develop, but lasts a little longer than an original portion.  The flavor is a very mild base tobacco taste with a dash of salt and a little pepper in the background.  It's very neutral and mild tasting and not overbearing in any aspect.  If I had to compare it to anything, I would say think of Phantom Classic White but without any citrus in the flavor.
Chick Snus Licorice


The taste description says, "A luxurious exterior with a special leaves of tobacco flavors and a refreshing touch of licorice."

When you open a can of Chick Snus Licorice, it's a very interesting smell.  There's a light presence of licorice, but the aroma also has a light menthol/eucalyptus type presence to it.   The portions are mini/white portions, so the flavor takes a little bit to develop, but lasts a little longer than an original portion.  The taste is a very mild tobacco taste with a very gentle hint of licorice.  It's not a very overpowering flavor, and the licorice isn't as bold as I've experienced in other snuses in the past.  I can't really think of anything to compare it to, because most licorice snus products have a more bold licorice taste.  I'm not saying that's a bad thing by any means, I can appreciate the flavor because it blends the tobacco flavor and the licorice flavor in a different way than I've experienced before.  It's pretty unique.

Chick Snus Lemon


The taste description says, "Has a mild tobacco near the aroma of fresh exotic flavor with hints of lemon."

When you open a can of Chick Snus Lemon, the aroma that comes through is a very bold presence of lemon with a little pepper in the background.  It smells delicious.  The portions are mini/white portions, so the flavor takes a little bit to develop, but lasts a little longer than an original portion. When you put a portion in, there's a very mild cooling sensation that comes through. The taste is a very present flavor of lemon with a dash of salt and a little pepper in the background. It reminds me of those Lemonhead candies, but not as sweet. It's a very natural taste of lemon.  This is probably my favorite of the four, because lemon isn't a flavor that is really used in the snus world.  It's hard to compare to anything, but I would definitely suggest trying this one, I really dig it.

If you're interested in trying Chick Snus, I haven't seen it for sale online anywhere yet.  I got my cans from a friend in Sweden to try out.  It's pretty widely available over there, the ChickSnus.com website says, "We are located at about 320 PressbyrĂ„n stores all over Sweden."  So if you want to try it there, head down to your local PressbyrĂ„n and give it a shot!
