Super White mint products back in May, so when I heard about this one I was pretty interested. Mainly, because I love the flavor of black currant. Swedish Match made a snus back in 2012 that I absolutely loved called Catch Black Currant, but it was discontinued. Since then, there haven't really been any black currant flavored products on the market! I was a little nervous going into this one, however, because I was told there was mint in the flavor as well. I wanted it to be just black currant flavored, so I was a little curious to see how this would turn out. I didn't want it to be overly minty, because I wanted a product that had a simple, black currant flavor. If you're unfamiliar with black currant - it's a tart berry which is popular in jams and syrups. The flavor of them reminds me of grape, but more earthy and tart.
The flavor description for this product says, "Skruf Super White Slim Cassice is the 3rd in the Skruf all-white snus family. Like the others, it is tobacco-free and white on both the inside and outside. Skruf says the flavor is "black currant and mint (Cassis + Ice(mint) = Cassice)." This product comes in a 17.3 gram can with 24 portions for 0.72 grams each. The nicotine content is listed as a 2/4, which I'm assuming is the equivalent 8mg/g.
I could do without the mint/menthol in this product, but I still enjoy it. It wasn't overly minty like I was worried it would be, and the black currant aroma and flavor is very present, which I enjoyed. I do think the added freshness in the aroma, the lip, and the flavor works with the black currant. While I went into this one nervous and worried, I find myself pleased. This is something I would definitely order again!
