A relatively new snus from Fiedler & Lundgren, Lundgrens Förbakad is a loose snus that ships with pre-baked portions. Having never seen pre-formed loose portions before (normally I use my IceTool to form loose portions), I was excited to give Förbakad a go and see how it performed! Each can of Förbakad comes with 32 grams of snus with 1.6 grams of snus per pre-baked portion.
Once I got my can open, I took a moment to take in the aroma. I noticed a strong smell of fresh tobacco, and in the background there was some floral undertones and a hint of sweetness. After I put a portion in, I detected a pronounced tobacco taste which tasted fresh and slightly sweet. This tobacco taste was complimented by a slight floral taste which I found paired well with the sweetness of the tobacco. Since the portions were large and loose, I found that the taste was quite strong and the tobacco taste lasted for around forty minutes before it became increasingly subdued.
After I had my can open, I noticed that the pre-baked portions had arrived intact. They were tightly compressed, and with gentle handling didn’t fall apart while I put portions in my mouth. Larger than standard snus portions, Förbakad portions still fit comfortably in my mouth, and produced little drip until around the thirty five minute mark. Removing portions was fairly easy, but I still found myself needing to rinse my mouth out afterwards (like I do with most loose snuses). I began to notice a nicotine buzz around the four minute mark and it was a little bit strong than regular portion snus due to the larger portions.
Overall, Lundgrens Förbakad is an interesting hybrid which blends some of the convenience of portioned snus with the rich taste of loose. Although I enjoyed Förbakad, I wouldn’t recommend using it while you’re out and about since it takes a bit of effort to remove cleanly. However, with its large portion size and satisfying taste, Förbakad makes for a great snus to enjoy while relaxing at home with a good book!
