Makla Ifrikia. I was told by GN Tobacco that they created it for the French market and hope to have it distributed by Altadice in France. They estimate the nicotine content to be at 12.5 mg/g but say that it is different from snus because the base is not only the tobacco but other compounds. In fact, the bottom of the can says the product is 35% tobacco and 65% "texture agent". GNT says the difference from Makla is that Alika is pasteurized, but they kept the important processes used in Makla. The only store I've seen this product listed are SnusWorld.ch and OdensSnus.com. The product description on SnusWorld.ch says, "Alika is the new chewing Tobacco in the market since 2 weeks from now. It's a very good alternative to Makla Africaine Bentchicou (Platinum) product with 40 gr of pure pleasure." This product comes in a 40 gram can, compared to the 25 gram can that Makla usually comes in.
MrSnuff.com as "quite a vigorous mixture, though its gentle conditioning gives it more roundness, thus making it softer than its Ifrikia cousin. A definite best seller!"
In the end, I really enjoyed Alika. I found the flavor to be much better than Makla, and I'm glad it comes in a full sized 40 gram can. This is a pretty tobacco centric snus - from the smell to the raw, earthy, natural tobacco taste. If you're somewhere that can get ahold of this product, I suggest trying it out if you like tobacco based flavors. It's pretty good stuff!
