Lundgren's Slim Berry (Discontinued) - Review. 1 July 2015.

This product has been discontinued and is no longer for sale.

The Lundgren's brand is a relatively new snus line from Fiedler and Lundgren. I've written about the Lundgren's series quite a bit in the past and I've been a pretty big fan of what they're doing in the snus world. When they launched Lundgren's Forbakad and Lundgren's Vit they launched two new formats, the forbakad snus and perforated white snus.  Forbakad is a type of pre-baked loose snus, and perforated white is a type of white portion that has holes in the pouch to allow for a quicker and more intense flavor release than common of most white portions.

There are three new products in the Lundgren's line, and they're all slim/white/perforated portions - Slim Fresh, Slim Berry and Slim Dark Ice.  All three of these products come in a new can which has a really simple look and reminds me a lot of Swedish Match's Lab Series.  The can also has some indicators for what is inside the snus can.  Slim, meaning the portion is slimmer than a regular sized portion.  White, which means the portion is less moist than an original portion.  Perforated, which means the portion has holes in it which allow for a quicker flavor release.  Soft Pouch, indicating how soft the portion is in the lip.  Strength, which comes in at a 2 out of 4 in their Pie Chart of Power.

When it comes to Lundgren's Slim Berry, the product description says, "White portion snus with perforerad pouches, to enhance the flavor and fit. Forest berry flavor."  When you open a can of Slim Berry, an aroma comes through of rich and fruity raspberry.  The last time experienced this was when I reviewed Catch Raspberry back in 2011.  It's true that there are other "fruity" snuses out there, but raspberry is a flavor that isn't very common in the world of snus.  The portions are very comfortable in the lip, and being a perforated white portion the flavor comes on a little quicker than with the average white portion.  The taste is absolutely delicious.  A very natural, fruity and rich taste of raspberry.  I love raspberry, and this isn't a flavor that is very common in the snus world so I was very excited to experience it with this snus.  This is a product that I would definitely order again.
