Pose Chew ‘N’ Park: Mint (White) is another tobacco-free product containing nicotine, this one from the Art Factory in Sweden! This one comes in a round can with a neat denim design scheme! Northerner.com describes them as a “tobacco derived nicotine product with a chewing gum base. The nicotine in POSE is extracted from the tobacco plant. However; the product contains no tobacco plant matter (e.g., leaf, root) in any form. Therefore this product does not classify as smokeless tobacco”.
The bottom of the can says to “activate pouch by pressing / lightly chewing between teeth. Park to release flavor and nicotine.” I’ve never chewed these, I just put them in my upper lip and use them like regular snus!
The product description says, “POSE Mint All White 7mg delivers a refreshing flavor and nicotine in a discreet pouch. Refreshing flavor of peppermint.” This product comes in a 7.5 gram can with 20 portions at 0.37 grams each. The can says the nicotine content is 7mg per pouch.
First of all, these are kind of dry to the touch. So, they’re not the most comfortable at first when you put them in your lip, however, as they get more moist they do get more comfortable. The aroma of this product is a light, mildly sweet smell of mint. Upon inserting a portion under my upper lip, I encounter a nice, mild cooling presence. The taste is much the same as the aroma – a very light, faint, subdued taste of mint with a touch of sweetness. It seems like there may be a little menthol in there, as well. The flavor lasts up to about the 30 minute mark, and the nicotine feels to be a little below the regular 8mg/g Swedish Snus strength that I’m used to.
If you enjoy nicotine but want to abstain from tobacco, check these out! They’re different from snus, but don’t contain tobacco. Give Pose Chew ‘N’ Park: Mint (White) a try if you want something a little different!
