Manufactured by the Danish snus manufacturer V2 Tobacco, Megapole Portion is a high quality discount snus with a racing theme. For those of you who aren’t racing fans, the pole position refers to the driver who is in the starting position of a race. Every can of Megapole snus contains 18 grams of snus, with 8mg of nicotine per portion.
As soon as I opened my can of Megapole, I noticed a strong scent of tobacco and not much else. Supposedly there is a small amount of bergamot in the snus, but I couldn’t really notice it. The smell wasn’t quite like most tobacco flavored snuses that I’ve tried as it smelled slightly stronger and the best way to describe the snus was the it had a slightly “toasted” aroma. Upon putting a portion into my mouth, I was greeted with a strong tobacco taste, and the full sized portions deliver quite a strong and rapid nicotine hit.
The portion material was comfortable, but not as comfortable as some other brands of snus out there. Since the portions were slightly drier than most regular portioned snus brands, I found that I was able to keep Megapole portions in for up to an hour with no problems at all. At one point I even feel asleep with a portion in, and it wasn’t overly moist when I woke up!
Overall, I feel that Megapole is a quality snus, and for the price it simply can’t be beat. I recommend megapole to fans of tobacco flavored snus brands, as well as those who enjoy a quick buzz along with their morning coffee.
In keeping with the racing theme of Megapole, I wanted to post some of my photos of the Montreal Grand Prix that I attended this year, but unfortunately the event prohibits posting photos outside of private collections. Instead, I’ve linked a video of a friend and myself participating in a winter rally car event near Montreal! I was the navigator in the race and had quite a lot of fun.
