Snus Guide: Know about the format, strength, and taste of snus

Snus is powdery smokeless tobacco that started as dry stuff first in Sweden. It is not fermented and is to be placed between the lip and the gums. This dry stuff was available as a loose and dark substance, but as of today, it is available in a featured round box. The popularity and development have made it available in white. The buyers can buy it in either large or small portions.

Earlier, the snus’ strength was measured as standard, but now it is measured on a scale of 1-4. The buyer can choose the strength they prefer. With the growing demand, plenty of flavors have been added to the market. You can find the different tastes in the market, and the list of snus is divided into strength, taste, and format.

Let us understand the different formats, strengths, and tastes of snus available in the market, which are as follows:

A decade back, snus’s strength wasn’t anything as it was measured as standard but with a growing market; it is now measured on the scale on 1-4. There are some types of snus that have a high nicotine level, which makes it stronger. The strength is measured on the PH value, moisture, and flavor of the snus.

Level 1 of snus is original and quite normal. It is specified by two dots mentioned on the box. Level 2 is a bit strong and specified by three dots. The strong snus means it has a high nicotine level added with other flavors. Level 3 is extra strong. It is indicated by four dots and is the strongest snus one has ever experienced. Level 4 is considered as the ultra-strong or super strong. Five complete dots indicate this level. This level is newly introduced and is the strongest snus.

When we talk about the taste of snus, it is ruled by two groups: traditional and original snus with smoke aroma and taste of tobacco and along with the flavor of mint. The snus that is not white has a smoky aroma and a taste of tobacco. This makes the best flavor of snus.
