Kardus branded limited edition releases - this is a different release. The is a product sold exclusively at the Snus and Match Museum's Museum Shop in Stockholm, and also at the Swedish Match store in Stockholm. A good friend of mine actually sent me all five varieties sold: General, Grov, Ettan, Prima Fint, and Roda Lacket. Needless to say, I couldn't be more excited to review this product. Because it's special, and because Prima Fint is my favorite loose snus.
website: "The “kardus paper” used to make the boxes is a simple, coarse type of wrapping paper that was used for a variety of products as long ago as the 1600s. It was used to package not only snus but gunpowder, shot, matches, etc. The Swedish word, “kardus” comes from the French word, “cartouche”, and has been used since Napoleonic times, and refers to the ancient Egyptian seals discovered at that time in North Africa. The “kardus boxes” were often closed with a seal. The 250g weight of our contemporary boxes refers back to the old weight – a half pound – which was commonly used when buying snus. This style of packaging disappeared as cardboard portion cans became increasingly popular, and these unique, hand-packed “kardus boxes” are nowadays only made at the Snus and Match Museum. The packaging is a beautiful, retro-style one, inspired by the Art Nouveau movement of almost 100 years ago."
As this is the same product as Prima Fint Lös, I'll share that flavor description: "A dark tobacco taste with notes of smoke, along with hints of dried fruits and rosehip." Each package contains 250g of tobacco (about a half a pound), and this one has a nicotine content of 8mg/g (0.8%). The same as the regular Prima Fint Lös!
