A relatively new addition to the popular Lab Series by Swedish Match, Lab Fresh Mint Slim White is a mint flavored snus which boasts soft portions and a no-drip formula. As someone who has enjoyed several types of Lab Series Snus in the past, I was excited to give Mint Slim a try. Each can of Mint Slim has 19.2 grams of snus, with .8 grams per portion.
After I opened my can of Mint Slim, I noticed a very strong aroma of sweet mint and a bit of menthol, and there was no tobacco aroma present. After placing a portion in my mouth, I soon began to notice a strong taste of sweet mint, with a slight cooling sensation. Although I enjoyed the cooling sensation, I wasn’t a big fan of how sweet the mint tasted. I also didn’t really taste any tobacco, and as time went on the mint taste slowly subsided but was still detectable even after the thirty minute mark. I didn’t experience very much drip which was a nice thing.
Arranged in a star formation, the portion material was definitely softer than the regular Lab Series offerings, but I found the shape to be slightly different (not as slim as the regular, and not as comfortable either). Furthermore, the portions felt quite small at only 0.8 grams per portion. Coming on gradually, I began to experience a pleasant buzz around the five minute mark, and it lasted for around twenty minutes before starting to subside which I enjoyed quite a bit.
Overall, I wasn’t a huge fan of Lab Fresh Mint. The different style portions and sweet mint flavor didn’t really stand out in any major way for me, and I found it to be a little to sweet for my liking. I recommend trying Fresh Mint if you enjoy long lasting sweet mint or snus brands where you can’t taste any tobacco. Fresh Mint also works well as a refreshing after dinner treat.
