Brukssnus Original, here. Find the new review of Brukssnus White, here.
Skruf recently rebranded the Småland's Snus line with the new name Småland's Brukssnus. Usually when a company rebrands something, it's simply a new name or design, so I usually will re-buy the products and see if anything has changed. In the case of Småland's Brukssnus Los, nothing changed except the name and can design, so I updated that review with the new graphics and left it alone. However, with this one, I noticed the flavor seems to have changed so I wanted to do a new review for the new design and new flavor. I originally reviewed the old Småland's Original and White Portion products back in February of 2012. When I tried them, I noted that they weren't awful, but weren't something I'd probably order again. However, it appears now as though the taste has improved in quality! The can design is also much better. The look appears to be more "manly", if I had to describe it.
The flavor description says, “Smålands Brukssnus Portion has a pure tobacco flavor. This snus has a regular size pouch that is moist on the surface for a long-lasting flavor experience." This snus comes in a 15.2 gram can with 18 portions, or 0.84 gram portions. The nicotine content is 10mg/g or 1.0%, which breaks down to about 8.44mg/portion.
The flavor description says, “Smålands Brukssnus White has a pure tobacco flavor. This snus has a regular size pouch that is dry on the surface with moist contents." This snus comes in a 12 gram can with 20 portions, or 0.6 gram portions. The nicotine content is 10mg/g or 1.0%, which breaks down to about 6mg/portion.
I find the new Brukssnus to be better than the older version. The new can design is better, as is the flavor. If you're a fan of tobacco-centric snus and want to save a few bucks, this one is definitely worth a try!
