Skruf Super White #4 (Fresh) - Review. 7 June 2019.

Last year I reviewed Skruf Super White #2 and #3 (Strong), Skruf's first nicotine pouch/"all white" products. Today, we're talking about their most recent release in the Super White line - Skruf Super White #4 (Fresh) Extra Strong! This is a new release in the growing "nicotine pouch" category. This is a product that contains nicotine, but no tobacco. This category is growing in popularity as more people are wanting to quit smoking, or tobacco all together, but not nicotine.  I'm a tobacco lover myself, so these products aren't for me, but I'm glad they exist.  As an advocate for tobacco harm reduction, anything that can help people quit smoking is a good thing in my book!

The flavor description for this product says it has a "biting mint flavor."  This product comes in a 17.3 gram can with 24 portions for 0.72 grams each. The nicotine content is listed as a 4/4, which means it is an extra strong.

These products are moist, and feel like snus. Inside the pouch you'll find what looks like white tobacco, but isn't actually tobacco. This product contains plant fibers and nicotine. It feels like tobacco, looks like tobacco (other than being white), and feels like a snus portion in the lip, but isn't actually tobacco. This is an interesting product, because there are a lot of people who want to quit smoking, and many of them want to quit tobacco all together, but don't want to give up nicotine. That's where products like this, and Zyn for example, become important.

When you open the can, the aroma that greets you is a sharp, lightly sweet, fresh smell of peppermint. The portions are slim, soft, and incredibly comfortable in the lip. Since this is a mint product, you'll encounter a nice cooling presence in the lip when you put a portion in!  The flavor is a gentle, lightly sweet, peppermint flavor.  It's a very fresh taste!  The nicotine level on this one is firmly at that extra strong level - I feel it hit pretty quickly, and it has quite a kick at that!  The flavor on average lasts up to about 45 minutes.  As far as this product goes, it's one of the better nicotine pouch products on the market.  If you like the mint flavor and want to quit tobacco, but not nicotine - this one may be right up your alley!
