Nick & Johnny: Green Ice (Slim White) - Review. 10 September 2015.

Review Updated: 6 May 2018

In 2015, one of my favorite spearmint flavored snus products, Catch Spearmint Slim White Large, was discontinued. I was bummed about it, because it was one I had used regularly for quite some time. However, this one launched shortly after that and I was easily able to replace Catch with the new Green Ice. Green Ice was also the first slim portion launched in the Nick and Johnny series. The flavor description for this one says, "Nick and Johnny Green Ice Slim White portion snus has a mellow tobacco taste, with distinct notes of spearmint and peppermint." This product comes in a 19.2 gram can with 24 portions, for 0.8 gram portions. The nicotine content is 14mg/g (1.4%), which breaks down to 11.2mg/portion.

When you open the can, the aroma that greets you is a mildly sweet, pleasant smell of spearmint. The portions are slim, white, soft, and very comfortable in the lip. Being a mint product you'll encounter that gentle cooling sensation in the lip, which is common of most mint products. The taste is quite pleasant and enjoyable.  It is a straightforward spearmint taste.  I don't notice any peppermint in the flavor profile.  It has a mild amount of sweetness to it, but not too over the top.  The nicotine content on this one is technically a strong, but it feels to be about the regular strength level.

If you like mint snus, this is a must try.  In my opinion, it's one of the best spearmint flavored products on the market!
