Now that spring has sprung, the folks over at Swedish Match have made several announcements regarding new snus brands and redesigns which are slated for release in the coming weeks. Here’s a quick rundown of some new and interesting brands which you can expect to see on Northerner soon!
General Long White Extra Strong
After having found success with the slim portion format of General Long and General Long Strong, Swedish Match plans to add a new member to the Long family, General Long White Extra Strong. Long white will have the classic General taste of spice, tobacco, and bergamot, but with a longer and slimmer portion format. As the name implies, it will be a white portion snus, meaning that it will have a low moisture content which should allow it to last a long time. Although I’m unsure of the exact nicotine content, I’m going to assume that it’ll contain around 12-16mg of nicotine per gram of snus. As a fan of General Long & Strong, I look forward to trying this one out once it gets released!
Catch Collection Spring Street
Continuing the tradition of releasing limited edition Catch flavors, Swedish Match plans to introduce a new member to the collection called Spring Street. Available in early May, expect Spring Street to have a taste of cinnamon and apple, while being quite sweet. No word on how long it’ll be available for, so be sure to keep checking back here to find out once it is released. Until then, Catch Lafayette Street will continue to be available, so be sure to stock up before it becomes discontinued!
Catch White Black Currant Long
Aside from Spring Street, Swedish Match is also planning to release Catch Black Current Long. Its another white portion, with a very interesting flavor profile said to taste of mild tobacco, black currant, and mint. I’m very curious as to how this snus will taste, and I’m looking forward to reviewing it upon release.
Goteborg’s Rape Redesign
Another thing which is expected to occur soon is a redesign of the current Goteborg’s Rape can. Although the look of the can will change, the classic taste of Goteborg’s Rape will remain the same. With a splash of red or green to go along with the classic blue can color, I think the new cans will look pretty neat!
Manufactured by V2 Tobacco, V2 is known for making quality snus at low prices, and as a big fan of the Offroad line of snus, I think that this mini format will be a welcome addition to an already strong lineup. Offroad Licorice Mini is currently available for purchase at Northerner. It tastes the same as the regular size Offroad Licorice, except in a smaller format.
I look forward to seeing what other snuses will be released this spring. If you have any information regarding new snus releases, don’t hesitate to contact me!
