Today we’re going to be talking about a snus product for the American market: Camel Snus Mint! This product has been around for about 4 years or so and is the “newest” addition to the Camel Snus lineup. Camel Snus comes with 15 pouches per can, which are around 0.6 grams each. I’m not sure what the nicotine content is exactly, but I’ve seen it listed online as anywhere between 2.5mg/g to 8mg/g. So, we’ll just call it “regular strength”. The flavor description for this one says, “Camel Mint Snus has a fresh flavor of mint. This snus has a slim white pouch.”
One thing you’ll notice about Camel Snus is that it comes in more of an oblong can – a big difference from the round cans we see with Swedish Snus or American moist snuff. The aroma of this stuff is a sharp, very sweet smell of peppermint. The portions are similar to the long/slim type in Swedish Snus, but these seem to be more thin than a slim portion. They do seem to be a little dryer than a regular Swedish Snus white portion. When it comes to the flavor, it is a little on the sweet side and has a present taste of peppermint. The flavor, on average, seems to last about 30 minutes. As far as the nicotine level goes, it isn’t too strong; it feels to be about as strong as a mini portion snus.
If you’re looking for a sweet mint product with a lower nicotine content, Camel Snus Mint may be right up your alley!
