Today we’re going to be talking about a chew bag product from AG Snus – U-Sample Cold Arctic No7 (Slim White)! This is a Nordic Chew/”chew bag” product for the EU, which is like snus, but slightly different in a few small ways. While they are made the same way as snus, the tobacco is cut instead of ground, and the portion material is slightly thicker so you can chew them if you choose to do so. I never have, but hey – to each their own.
The flavor description for this one says, “A flavor of cool spearmint.” Each can has 24 portions, and has a nicotine content of 20mg/g. This puts it at the extra strong level, which seems to be where most of these chew bag products are.
When you open the can, the aroma seems to be peppermint and menthol. While the flavor description says spearmint, I really don’t notice that. The portions are slim, and pretty soft. They have a great mouthfeel, and a nice cooling feeling under the lip! The flavor of peppermint is pretty present. It’s a little sweet but not super sweet or anything. There’s a little menthol kicking around in the background, but it doesn’t overpower the peppermint. The nicotine kick feels to be strong, but it’s not extra strong feeling. The flavor lasts quite a while, usually 1-1.5 hours on average.
For mint products, this one isn’t too bad. I mean, there’s a billion of them out there already, but I still enjoyed this one. If you can get chew bag products, but not snus, and you’re a mint lover, check out U-Sample Cold Arctic No7 (Slim White)!
