R42 Green Mint (Super Strong) White - Review. 16 July 2018.
Back in 2017, I reviewed R42 Peppermint (Xtra Strong White) and R42 Green Mint (Xtra Strong White). In 2018, those products were replaced with Super Strong versions, and in 2019 the cans changed from black to white. If you're not familiar with R42, don't fret! I will do a little background, which I know you all enjoy reading, right? So, several years ago, I heard about a Swedish Match product named Rocket that was for sale in the border stores (which I did eventually get to review in 2017). At one point, that product evolved into one called Revel by Rocket. Revel by Rocket eventually evolved into R42, which now is a whole range of products with mint flavors (Cool Mint, Peppermint, and Green Mint, and "Super Strong"), a licorice flavor, and a tobacco flavor. The R42 line also comes with some of the best looking snus cans on the market today. It's grown from a border store only product line to now being for sale on the Swedish Match e-store.
The flavor description for this one says, "Light and spicy tobacco character with distinct elements of spearmint, melon and guava, and a light hint of green herbs" It comes in a 11.2g can with 16 portions for 0.7g portions. The nicotine content, as mentioned earlier, is 26mg/g (2.6%) which breaks down to 18.2mg/portion
As far as flavor goes, it's very unique. There's nothing out there that tastes like this. It's a great taste for the summer, and people who love mint and fruit flavored snuses will probably dig this one!
