Zyn Slim Citrus (All White) Strong - Review. 18 June 2018.

At Snus Con this year, a friend from Sweden gave me a can of this stuff to try. I kept it around and used it here and there and eventually fell in love with it. I found this snus to be the perfect product to pair with beer; the citrus flavor is on point.  This isn't like the dry Zyn products I reviewed in the past; they are much different. Also, these sadly aren't available to the US. So, I've been using this last can of it slowly. The flavor description at SnusBolaget says, "ZYN Slim Citrus illuminates its existence with its sunny, healthy and refreshing taste of lemon, lime and a little orange zest." This product comes in a 16.8 gram can with 0.8 gram portions. Doing some math, it looks like a can contains 21 portions. The nicotine content is 12mg/g (1.2%), which breaks down to 9.6mg/portion.

When is Zyn not Zyn? If you're used to the Zyn products sold in the US or those sold as "Zyn Mini Dry" in Sweden, these probably look quite different. They aren't as dry, and they look much like the other all white snus products sold on the market. These don't contain tobacco, however, so they're not going to be like an Epok or a G4. These are going to be closer to Skruf's new Skruf SuperWhite. This Zyn product is a moist product, still tobacco free, and containing nicotine, vegetable fiber and cellulose powder (E-460). While it may look like other white tobacco products, it doesn't actually contain tobacco.

When I open the can, the aroma is a really nice mix of lemon and lime. It's not overly sweet, and has a little tartness to the smell. The portions are soft, slim, and feel comfortable in the lip, much like regular snus does.  The taste is where this one really shines.  It's a great lemon taste with hints of lime.  It doesn't taste too sweet, which I really like about this one.  It's also not overly tart.  As the product description says, it's very refreshing.  Larry from SnusCENTRAL said the taste reminds him of Country Time Lemonade.  The nicotine strength feels to be at about the regular level.  It's not too strong, but you can notice it's there.  The flavor lasts a good amount of time; I've found I can keep these in for an hour or more.  When pairing with beer, I've kept them in for about an hour and a half.

If this product was available online to the US, I'd definitely buy more of it.  It's a good one to keep around, especially for pairing with beer.  If you can get it, definitely try it, it's quite tasty!
