Lundgren's LG Slim White (Extra Strong) - Review (Discontinued). 2 December 2016.

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

In February of this year I reviewed Lundgren's Slim White and now it appears that it has become popular enough that Fiedler and Lundgren felt the need to release an extra strong version of that snus.  The nicotine content of this one is 16mg/g.  This one has a different can design and, surprisingly, is not perforated like the regular strength version of this product. I saw this product for sale at TopSnus.com and thankfully a friend of mine in Europe was able to order and forward a can over to us for review. When it comes to Lundgren's Slim White Extra Strong, the product description says, " Extra strong slim white for the right nicotin kick. Rich in tobacco flavour with notes of meadow flowers and pine needles. With a new, perforated pouch which allow the taste to get out faster and feel more."  Though the pouches are not perforated, I was glad to see that the FlexLid carried over to this product, as well.

The can pictured to the left is Granit Sensations: Mint Slim (White), but the FlexLid is the same in this product.

If you've never heard of Flex Lock, or FlexLid as it is sometimes called, it is a new type of catch lid that Fiedler and Lundgren began with Lundgren's. It's a really cool concept that I hope everyone begins to do. It's basically a rubber/elastic material in the catch lid instead of plastic that grows with the more portions you add. If you're someone like me who constantly uses your catch lid and has to empty it often, this allows you to continuously fill it up and the catch lid expands to allow for more space for used portions. It's a really neat idea and one I'm excited to see more companies embrace.

When you open the can, you'll notice that the portions aren't perforated like the regular strength Lundgren's Slim Fresh. They are, however, slim white portions.  When you open the can you'll be greeted by a very present smell of pine, a light herbal presence, and a little tobacco.  The taste is quite complex, and that's one thing I like about the Lundgren's brand - they make some complex tasting snus.  I get a very present taste of pine and a mild, earthy tobacco taste in the background.  There is an accompanying herbal taste, as well, and a light floral presence just the tiniest hint of sweetness.  If you've had the Lundgren's Slim White regular strength snus before, the taste of this one is virtually identical.  The only difference is the nicotine.  You'll definitely notice extra nicotine with this one.  It's only 16mg/g, so it's not as strong as most extra strong snus out there, but I do notice the extra nicotine.

If you like complex flavored snus and higher nicotine levels, I definitely suggest giving this one a try!
