Released late this winter by Swedish Match, G4 FU:ZN is what Swedish Match considers to be a ‘4th generation’ snus, meaning that it has a slim & soft fit, is long lasting and has minimal drip. In addition to the aforementioned features, FU:ZN also uses a special process to render the snus white and stain-free. Although I’m not normally a fan of mint flavored snus brands, I was curious to try FU:ZN in order to see how the mint taste would interact with the other flavors! Every can of FU:ZN comes with 24 0.8g portions each containing 15.2mg of nicotine for a total of 19.2g of snus per can.
Not long after opening my can of FU:ZN, I soon began to notice a strong aroma of spearmint with slight hints of apple in the background. Soon after putting in a portion, I began to notice a natural tasting spearmint which had just the right balance of sweet and refreshing flavor. Around the three minute mark, I started to taste hints of green apple as well, although it was more subdued in taste compared to Jakobsson’s Flader. Although Swedish Match states that there is also hints of coconut and vanilla flavor, I didn’t notice these flavors present. The apple flavor began to subside around the fifteen minute mark, but the spearmint taste remained present for about forty five minutes before starting to weaken in terms of taste, and I didn’t detect any tobacco taste during the time I had portions in.
FU:ZN comes in a long and slim portion format, and the portions are very soft in my lip. Furthermore, much like Epok line of snus, FU:ZN undergoes a special process to render the snus completely white. I’m a big fan of white snus as I occasionally fall asleep with portions in, and the non-staining aspect of white snus makes for a clean experience. Due to the moisture content of the portions, I generally felt a nicotine buzz begin to set in within a couple minutes of putting in a portion, and it was quite strong and satisfying without getting into extra strong territory. I generally kept portions in for around an hour before removing them due to a weakening in flavor.
As a whole, I was quite impressed with the overall experience I had with FU:ZN. The apple flavor paired surprisingly well with the spearmint taste, and the portions were both soft and white which I appreciate. I can definitely see myself adding FU:ZN into my daily rotation as its long lasting flavor and comfortable portions make it great for everyday use. I highly recommend trying G4 FU:ZN if you’re a fan of minimal drip snuses, and the flavor is quite interesting for both mint and fruit snus lovers alike!
