Epok Melon (Slim) - Review. 20 June 2016.

I originally reviewed 8 flavors of Epok Snus back in February of 2015. I put them all into one article because I wasn't sure if these products would be sticking around long or not. When I originally reviewed the previous 3 products from Epok, I didn't have very high hopes for their new offerings. I previously reviewed Epok Breeze, Epok Pinje and Epok Original, but I wasn't too impressed with those flavors.  However, I was pleasantly surprised with the new offerings from Epok! When it comes to Epok Melon, the product description says, "Epok Melon White Slim Portion Snus is described as having a clear, refreshing and distinct melon flavor. This melds with the white tobacco's basic character, creating something entirely novel."

For those who are just now hearing about Epok for the first time, you may be asking yourself what "white tobacco" is. Epok says, "White tobacco produced in a patented, environmentally friendly process that gently cleanses and refines brown tobacco. In the process, minimizing unwanted substances, such as heavy metals and nitrosamines. The feeling under the lip, nicotine strength and flavor experience is the same as in plain brown pouch - but without the snus runs or color your teeth. White tobacco contains white tobacco, nicotine, water, stabilizer and flavoring agents. White tobacco produced by pure brown tobacco in a water-based process, leaving the tobacco is clean of all unwanted substances. White tobacco contains no natural sugar. In contrast, added sweetener xylitol as flavoring."

Melon is becoming a popular flavor in the snus world.  It seems lately more and more companies are joining the bandwagon and making melon flavored snus.  There are a lot of fans of the melon flavor, but it's not one I regularly order.  This one is another slim portion snus.  When you open a can of Epok Melon, the aroma that comes through is a very nice fruity aroma reminiscent of cantaloupe.  I had trouble taking my nose away from this one.  The taste is quite pleasant.  The fruity flavor overpowers the clean/white tobacco taste that is present with some of the others and gives way to a rather delicious fruit flavor.  Like the smell, the taste reminds me of cantaloupe.  The fruity taste is very natural and not too sweet.  This one is very flavorful, enjoyable and one I would definitely order again.  I'm not the biggest melon fan, but I was surprised with how much I enjoyed this one!
