Skruf Solbær (Super White) #3 - Review. 28 February 2020.

Back in 2018, I reviewed Skruf Cassice (Super White) #2, a nicotine pouch product with the flavor of black currant. While I don't personally enjoy mixing mint with other flavors like berry, I found myself really enjoying this one. I've kept some in stock in my freezer ever since! Now, Skruf has launched a new version, at the #3 (Stark/Strong) level. I recently grabbed some on a recent order from SnusMe.com and I've really been enjoying it!  The flavor description says it has a "fresh taste of black currant and sweet mint". This product comes in a 17.3 gram can with 24 portions for 0.72 grams each. At the #3 level, this product would rank as a strong in terms of nicotine strength, so probably between 12mg/g-14mg/g.

If you're new to the Skruf Super White brand, it's part of the growing category of products that contain nicotine but no tobacco! The pouches are moist, and feel like regular snus in the lip. Looking inside the pouch you can see it looks somewhat similar to snus, but is completely white. It 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 of black currant is quite present, and accompanied by a mild freshness reminding me of menthol. The portions are slim, soft, and comfortable under the lip. I also notice a mild cooling presence under the lip with this one. The black currant flavor is present, natural, and lightly sweet. There’s a mild freshness with this one in the taste due to the presence of menthol. The nicotine level feels to be a little stronger than a regular strength, but not too strong. The flavor, on average, lasts about 40-50 minutes.  If you like Cassice, you'll enjoy this one.  It has the same taste, but more nicotine!
