Jakobsson's Ice Fruit - Review (Discontinued). 9 November 2015.
NOTE: This product has been discontinued and is no longer for sale.
This product is special to me, it's one of the first Swedish Snus products I ever bought and fell in love with. I used it a lot in the early days, and it was the first regular strength product I ever tried! The product description says, "Jakobsson’s is a premium snus produced from especially chosen raw materials – a mixture of the finest tobacco types collected from all corners of the world. Jakobsson's Ice-Fruit snus has a soft, fruity taste with a fresh, icy undertone." This snus comes with a nicotine strength of 10mg/g.
I opened up the can and immediately smelled a tropical fruit smell, followed by an undertone of mint. The portions are quite full, as is common of most Gotlandssnus/Jakobsson's Products and required very little fluffing before putting it in the lip. After I put a portion in I noticed the taste reminded me of something but I couldn't put my finger on it. After a few days of enjoying this snus I finally figured it out - it tastes just like Juicy Fruit gum! If you've ever had that before you know what I mean, but if you haven't - it's hard to place a flavor with Juicy Fruit gum. It tastes a lot like a cross between banana/peach/pineapple/jackfruit. It's hard to explain, but I can say this - it's a very fresh and fruity taste. It's closer to a tropical fruit taste if I had to place it. I enjoy this snus a lot in the summer time, but I order it from time to time to mix things up. You really can't go wrong with Ice Fruit!
