As some of you may know, we sell both soon to expire as well as recently expired snus here at Northerner. As a consequence, I’ve had many people e-mailing me to ask whether or not this snus is still good and if they should purchase it. Having used expired snus (up to a month and a half) several times before, I decided I would weigh in and give my thoughts about the prospect. Expired snus is sold in lots of 5, and you can purchase a lot of portions or loose. The price is very low, and it can be a great alternative to buying fresh snus when you’re low on funds.
Despite being expired, most of these snus brands are actually quite tasty. Since snus usually contains quite a bit of salt, snus can actually keep for quite a long time without going bad. Original portions may become a drier than normal, but you can fix this problem by adding a little bit of moisture to your cans to increase the moisture level. White portions on the other hand generally keep really well, and don’t dry out. I recommend placing original expired snus in the fridge to slow down the drying out process, but white portions should keep fine in a cool, dark, and dry place. For some flavor intensive snuses (such as Goteborg’s Rape Lime), you may notice the taste to be a little weaker than usual but still present.
Although expired snus is quite cheap, keep in mind that ordering a 5-pack of expired snus will net you a mystery package containing different brands which have recently expired (so don’t expect to be able to get all of your favorite brands). In addition, our stock of expired snus changes rapidly and is not always available, so make sure to keep checking back to our expired snus page.
