Produced by Jakobsson’s Snus, Jakobsson’s Special Strong Cola is a new offering from the Henrik Jakobssons Special line of snus which provides a tasty cola flavored snus in a strong portion format. In the past I was a fan of V2 Tobacco’s limited edition Offroad Coola as well as Thunder Coola, so I was definitely excited to try Jakobsson’s Cola to see how the flavor would stack up! Each can of Special Strong Cola comes with 20 one gram strong portions (14mg of nicotine per gram) for a total of 20 grams of snus per can.
After opening my can, I immediately began to notice an sweet aroma of cola, minus the carbonation. I also picked up hints of bubblegum, but this was quite mild and in the background. Not long after putting in a portion, I began to notice a sweet tasting dominant cola flavor which developed quickly as the portions were fairly moist. I usually kept portions in for about fifty minutes before the cola flavor pretty much completely subsided and I was left with a sweet and salty tobacco taste.
The first thing I noticed about the portions was the fact that they’re much softer than the rest of the Jakobsson’s lineup and extremely comfortable. Moreover, the portions are a full one gram, and I find that this amount produces a nice and rich taste compared to smaller portion sizes. With 14mg of nicotine per portion, the portions created a nice and strong buzz which lasted for around forty minutes before starting to diminish. Due to Special Strong Cola’s sweet taste, I generally found myself experiencing a sweet tasting drip around the thirty minute mark.
As a whole, I must say that I enjoyed Jakobsson’s Special Strong Cola quite a lot. Cola flavored snus is relatively rare (Oden’s Kola is the only other cola flavored snus currently available), and I feel that Jakobsson’s definitely did a good job on this one, especially with the super comfortable one gram portions. However, I did find the taste to be quite enjoyable from time to time, but I prefer to use it now and again to mix up my daily rotation as it was a bit too much on the sweet side for me. I recommend trying Special Strong Cola if you’re a fan of sweeter flavored snuses or is looking to mix things up in your daily rotation! Furthermore, Special Strong Cola is great after a big dinner, and I find the higher nicotine content to produce a relaxing effect.
