U-Sample No15 (Licorice Mint) Slim White - Review. 12 September 2017.

Back in April I reviewed U-Sample Chew Bags by AG Snus.  Of the various chew bag products on the market, felt that U-Sample were some of the better ones.  Now, it looks like AG Snus has decided to release these products as snus. These are slim portions whereas the chew bags were regular sized portions. Now, to preface this review, I am a fan of licorice. However, I've never been a fan of mixing licorice and mint; I just want to be upfront about that! Though I considered the U-Sample Licorice Mint chew bags to be good products, I did confess that they weren't for me. But, I do want to remain objective! When it comes to this one, the product description says, "U Sample No 15 Slim Licorice Mint has a fresh mint and licorice taste." This product comes in a 16.8 gram can with 24 portions for 0.7 gram portions. The nicotine content is 17mg/g (1.7%), which breaks down to 11.90mg/portion.  The can design is virtually identical to the U-Sample chew bag cans.

When you open the can, the aroma that comes through is a present and mildly sweet smell of licorice. I don't smell any mint in the aroma, but there is a cooling presence to the smell, if that makes any sense. The portions are slim, soft, and comfortable to the touch. When you put a portion in the lip, you'll also encounter a mild cooling sensation in the lip and throughout the mouth. The taste is pretty much the same as I encountered with the U-Sample Licorice Mint chew bags product. The flavor of licorice is relatively mellow, and is accompanied by a refreshing flavor of menthol. Though the flavor says it's licorice mint, I don't taste mint - it seems more like menthol. The two flavors work pretty well together and the menthol isn't too obtrusive. The flavor lasts a good amount of time; I've found these last for a little bit over an hour. The nicotine kick feels to be between a strong and an extra strong.

Now, as I mentioned, I'm not a fan of mixing licorice and mint.  So, this product isn't for me.  But, this flavor combination is becoming popular and people do seem to dig it.  If you like licorice and mint then I'd still suggest giving this a try.  It's a solid product, even though it's not one I'd use.
