Jakobsson's Special Persika/Peach (Discontinued) - Review. 29 March 2018.
Gotlandssnus has released a new release in the "Jakobsson's Special" series, this one flavored with persika or, to those who don't speak Swedish, peach! Peach is not a very common snus in the world of Swedish Snus; the last one I tried was actually a snus produced in America called Discreet Peach, which was a white mini portion. Honestly, it surprises me it's taken this long for a peach snus to be released! The Jakobsson's Special series originated in February 2017, with the release of Jakobsson's Special: Cola (Strong), which proved popular enough to be added full time to the Jakobsson's lineup! The next release, Jakobsson's Special: Salmiak (Strong) was released in November, 2017, and still remains on sale, as well.
Henrik Jakobsson, founder and CEO of Gotlandssnus, describes this product by saying "When I tested the flavors for the third edition, I was looking for a taste sensation that contained sweetness, but also something sour, the peach turned out to be what I was looking for and I think we managed to come up with a consistent product. There is currently no peach snus on the Swedish market, but it is very common in the United States, so it's a lot of fun to bring a whole new taste experience to Sweden." This product comes in a 20 gram can with 20 portions for 1 gram portions. The nicotine strength is 14mg/g (1.4%), which comes out to 14mg/portion!
This is a must try snus, especially if you're a fan of peach. Gotlandssnus nailed the flavor on this one and I really hope it sticks around. I will be ordering this again. As of the date of this writing, it isn't on sale just yet, but should be on sale within the next week or so. Moe from SnusCENTRAL.com said they would be stocking it as soon as it is available!
