Welcome to the first entry in the new official Northerner blog! The goal of this blog is to provide snus reviews, news, guides, as well as to keep everyone up to date on the latest deals on Northerner. I intend to release frequent blog updates, with a goal of four new posts per week. Although the blog will focus on snus, there will also be occasional articles on American dip, nasal snuff, e-cigarettes, and other neat stuff.
As for my own background, I quit smoking thanks to snus over two years ago, and since then I’ve had the opportunity to try a wide variety of snus brands. I’ve also been blogging about snus for almost two years on various sites, and enjoy spreading the word about the benefits of snus over cigarette smoking (I plan to post about my experience in a later article). I look forward to blogging here for Northerner, as Northerner was where I purchased my first ever order for snus, and I’ve always had excellent customer service. My first snus brands were Lucky Strike White as well as General Portion.
I don’t plan on using a numerical review scale in my snus reviews, as I feel that its difficult to place the quality of a brand of snus on a number scale. Everyone has different flavors that they enjoy, so instead I’ll try to blog about certain aspects of each snus such as:
- Amount of snus per portion and can
- Nicotine Content
- How long the snus lasts
- Portion design
- How I felt about the snus overall.
I’ll try my best to take as many photos as I can as well, including some high-res macro shots of the different snus brands. I encourage questions and comments, so feel free to contact me through the blog comments or the contact form. Don’t forget to like Northerner on Facebook!
Within the next week, expect to see reviews on Jakobsson’s Melon Strong, Thunder Cool Orange, and Skruf Stark as well as some other goodies.
