Manufactured by Fiedler and Lundgren, Mocca Black Maple White Midi is a medium portion snus, in between mini and regular portions. It has the length of a full sized portion, but the height of a mini. As someone who loves maple syrup, I was excited to give this snus a try. Each can of Black Maple comes with 9 grams of snus, and every portion has 5mg of nicotine.
Once I opened my can of Black Maple, I immediately noticed an aroma of sweet maple and brown sugar. I could smell no tobacco aroma whatsoever, only very sweet scents. Upon placing a portion in my mouth, I first tasted a sweet maple flavor which reminded me of fresh maple syrup from local “sugar shacks” (maple syrup farms) near where I live. About a half hour in, the flavor began to slowly develop into a sweet flavor with a hint of brown sugar. I couldn’t detect any tobacco taste, and the snus contained very little salt flavor.
The portions themselves remind me quite a bit of those from the Lab Series of snus, except smaller. They produce little to no drip, and I was able to keep portions in for about an hour and a bit without experiencing drip. The smaller portion size also made them discreet, while at the same time still providing a relatively good nicotine buzz compared to mini portions.
Overall, I was quite impressed by Mocca Black Maple (available here on our webstore). The sweet maple flavor pairs exceptionally well with coffee, and also doubles as a great after dinner treat. I recommend Black Maple to those who prefer sweet flavored snus brands and for those who are looking for discreet portions that still have a nice kick.
