RITE Original Chew Bags - Review. 21 November 2018.

I recently did a preview article about Mac Baren getting into the snus and chew bag game, and today I'm going to be reviewing two of the six new products they launched under the new Ministry of Snus A/S company: Rite Original Chew Bags: Large White and Slim White! Do check out their MinistryOfSnus.com website, it's really well done. Of the new RITE line, this is what they had to say: “Having produced fine lifestyle products since 1826, makes us able to guarantee you the RITE quality. Expect a rock-solid experience that packs a real punch. Always and with no exception - Daringly strong. We strive to create simple, flavour packed experiences for you. Without excess and with design in mind."

RITE Original Large

The flavor description for RITE Original Large says, "Meet RITE ORIGINAL – a classic flavour. ORIGINAL is developed by the best experts in the field and is rich on flavour notes from juniper, bergamot and lemon. Old school done right. Expect a rock-solid experience that packs a real punch."  This product comes with a 15g can with 20 portions for 0.75g portions. The nicotine content is 28mg/g (2.8%), or 21mg/portion.

When you open the can, the aroma of juniper is quite present and is accompanied by light notes of citrus. The portions themselves are soft to the touch, and feel rather comfortable in the lip.  The flavor is a pleasant pairing of juniper, tart notes of citrus, and a light, earthy touch of tobacco in the background.  It's hard to compare to anything; it is a pretty unique taste.  The nicotine kick is very strong.  Though it is a white portion, the nicotine delivery is quick and it packs quite a punch.  Comparing to other snus products or chew bag products, this feels right above the extra strong level.  The flavor lasts a solid amount of time, as well; I find these last up to the hour mark!

RITE Original Slim

The flavor description for RITE Original Large says, "Meet RITE ORIGINAL – a classic flavour. ORIGINAL is developed by the best experts in the field and is rich on flavour notes from juniper, bergamot and lemon. Old school done right. Expect a rock-solid experience that packs a real punch."  This product comes with a 13.2g can with 24 portions for 0.55g portions. The nicotine content is 28mg/g (2.8%), or 15.4mg/portion.

This one is the same as the large version but with a few small differences. The aroma is still a present smell of juniper and a gentle hint of citrus. The portions are slimmer, and have a great fit in the lip along with a soft portion material. The flavor is very much the same; a present flavor of juniper accompanied by tart notes of citrus and a light, earthy tobacco character. The nicotine is quite strong, but doesn't kick as hard as the large. Make no mistake, however, this stuff is strong, and it feels right above the extra strong level. The flavor also lasts a solid amount of time, on par with the one hour mark for the large version.

I was very impressed with these products.  For first offerings from a brand new snus/chew company, these were of a very high quality and packed a great taste.  If you want to try something new, check out their website and you can order some from there!  If you are unable to buy these, don't fret!  They plan to launch them as snus versions soon for the Sweden and Norway markets.
