A recent addition to the popular Skruf line of Snus, Skruf Slim Mynta White is a peppermint flavored snus which is manufactured using 100% ecologically certified tobacco. Moreover, Mynta is unique among snuses as each can contains 10% mint leaves by weight! Each can of Skruf Slim Mynta contains 16.8 grams of average strength snus with 24 portions per can (0.7g per portion).
After opening my can of Mynta, I soon noticed a mild peppermint aroma, with only a little bit of fresh tobacco in the background. Once I placed a portion in my mouth, I began to taste a natural tasting peppermint flavor which wasn’t overly sweet (I find a lot of mint brands to be overly sweet), and the addition of real mint leaves definitely improves the taste. Aside from the peppermint flavor, I also noticed a hint of Skruf’s tobacco taste in the background which slowly became stronger as time went on (I didn’t taste any rose oil however, which likely would have upset the balance between the mint and tobacco!). The tobacco was very mild tasting and I found it to be pleasant.
As for the portions, they come in a long and slim format with average material, and fit comfortably in my lip while also being discreet. As a white portion snus it took about five minutes for the nicotine buzz to set in, but the lower moisture levels produced little drip until about the forty minute mark. On average I generally left portions in for a little over an hour before removing them.
Despite the fact that I’m not usually a big fan of mint flavored snuses, I must say that Mynta is definitely my favorite mint brand on the market, and is definitely a tasty and refreshing experience which was made especially natural tasting with the addition of the mint leaves. With summertime rapidly approaching, I feel like Mynta will be a refreshing treat alongside a glass of iced tea on lazy weekend days!
