The Northerner brand of snus contains a number of interesting products, and Boost really piqued my interest. Billed as an energy snus, Northerner Boost contains caffeine, taurine, and guarana alongside nicotine which can help give you a kick of energy when you need it most. Most of the time in the morning I like to snus while drinking coffee, so being able to combine the two was a definite plus. Northerner Boost also contains baking soda, which is said to help whiten your teeth and freshen your breath as you snus.
As soon as I opened my can, I didn’t notice much of an aroma at all. After putting a portion into my mouth, I noticed a slight hint of honey, and it was very nice. This flavor was able to last me approximately a half hour before it dissipated and transitioned into a saltier flavor. I also noticed a slight peppery taste, which may be attributable to the tobacco. However, I didn’t detect any tobacco flavor, even when the honey taste wore off. As a dry portion snus, I wasn’t expecting very much flavor, but I did like what I could taste.
Northerner Boost contains 6mg of nicotine per portion, and has 24 portions per can. Although I’m unsure of the caffeine content, I definitely noticed a slight caffeine boost alongside the nicotine which acted as a great pick me up. As someone who is sensitive to the effects of caffeine, I felt that this amount was good enough to keep me stimulated but not enough to make me feel jittery.
Overall, Northerner Boost is a great snus if you’re looking for some additional energy alongside your
snus. For me, it has worked great in the mornings as I’ve been able to skip my usual morning coffee and just use Boost instead. I highly recommend this snus to people looking for both a nicotine buzz as well as an energy boost.
