Skruf SuperSlim Fresh (White Portion) - Review. 18 May 2017.

Review Updated:  6 January 2019

When Swedish Match launched G3 Mint Super Slim White Strong in 2016, I wasn't sure if the "super slim" format would be something that caught on. In early 2017, they released another super slim, G3 Super Slim White Strong.  Now, it appears as though Skruf is jumping on board the super slim train.  When it comes to the SuperSlim format, Skruf describes this product by saying "Skruf SuperSlim Fresh White is a white portion snus with a fresh taste of mint. SuperSlim is a narrower and more discreet format than our other slim portions."  Each can weighs 16.5g and has 30 portions, for 0.55g portions.  The nicotine content is regular, so I'm assuming 8mg/g.  If that is the case, it would break down to 4.4mg/portion.

Looking at a comparison between a regular sized portion, a slim portion, and a super slim portion, you can see that the super slim portion is, well, super slim.  Snus, in my opinion, is already extremely discrete.  But if you want to be even more discrete, I suppose super slim size portions is the way to go.  You can see they're about as long as a regular slim portion, but they're more narrow, so they'll fit a little lighter in the lip.

When you open the can, the smell that comes through is predominantly peppermint, but with a mild hint of menthol in the background.  The portion is quite slim, being a SuperSlim portion, and has a soft portion material that feels nice in the lip!  Being a mint snus, you'll experience the familiar mild cooling sensation that comes along with this flavor profile.  The taste is very much the same as regular sized Skruf Slim Fresh - a mild, lightly sweet taste of peppermint with a gentle hint of menthol in the background.  The taste lasts a good amount of time, I can usually enjoy this snus for up to an hour, sometimes more!  The nicotine strength is lighter than regular strength, but still feels adequate.

Super slim is an interesting portion format.  Personally, it's not something I would use.  But there are a lot of snus users who are concerned with discretion, and this is a great way to consume snus and be discrete about it.  The portions feel more substantial in the lip than mini portions, which is a plus.  If you like the flavor of regular Skruf Slim Fresh but want something in a super slim format, give this one a try!
