Produced by SP Tobacco, Wow! Sunny Honey is a fairly new addition to the Wow! lineup, and introduces an interesting new honey and citrus flavor. Having previously reviewed the other members of Wow! (Wintermint and Salty Stuff, I was looking forward to giving Sunny Honey a try). Sunny Honey has 15 grams of tobacco per can with 0.7 gram portions.
A fresh can of Sunny Honey has a strong aroma of honey, complimented by hints of citrus fruit (primarily grapefruit). I found Sunny Honey to be very natural smelling, and I didn’t detect any artificial aromas. After placing a portion in my lip, I began to notice a sweet honey taste which was complimented by a little bit of grapefruit. Both flavors tasted very authentic, and like with the aroma I can’t taste any artificial flavors. The grapefruit taste began to subside after ten minutes, but the sweet honey flavor remained for about thirty. The balance between the flavors was very enjoyable, and I never tasted any salt or tobacco, even around the fifty minute mark.
The portions use average material, and they feel quite comfortable in my upper lip. They were slightly moist and produced little drip with a regular strength nicotine buzz setting in after a few minutes. I do however wish that SP would increase the amount of snus per portion so that the flavors become stronger.
As a whole, Sunny Honey is definitely among my favorite snus brands of all time (which is surprising considering I generally prefer tobacco dominant snuses!). The sweet honey flavor combined with subtle hints of citrus made for an extremely pleasing natural taste with little drip and no bitter flavor. Sunny Honey makes for a great after dinner treat and also pairs well with citrus flavored wheat beers.
