Telemark: XTra Fresh and XTra Tobak Reviews (Discontinued). 28 May 2014.
If you recall, last year I reviewed two new products - Lapland and Telemark. At the time, these new products came in bags, and I was not impressed with the snus. However, now, a change has been made and it's a big one. These new products come in the Jakobsson's cans (not sure why, as this snus is listed as being made by "Telemark & Lapland Independent Co", but perhaps they outsourced the cans like V2 does by letting other companies use their cans). They even have the same compass under the catch lid. There are two new products, XTra Fresh, described as " A fresh taste of mint. 20 portions / 1g per portion" and XTra Tobak, described as "Has a pure tobacco taste. 20 portions / 1g per portion" These are also both listed as Strong Portions. I recently picked up a can of each from Northerner.com to try out.
These two are a MAJOR step up from the last batch of Telemark Snus I tried. I'm not sure who's making it, but if Gotlandssnus/Jakobsson's has a hand in it, maybe that's why the quality has increased so much, as they make a fine product.
