Loose snus was the only available option for purchase not too long ago. A snus beginner will be happy to know that this product now offers several forms and varieties. Users can find the right product to suit their particular needs. Loose snus consists of ground tobacco which comes in fine, medium or coarse varieties. This basic of Swedish traditions remains the same today as it was 200 years ago. Sweden launched small paper pouched snus in the 1970s. Known as the Original Portion, this began a new era for snus products. Offering less risk of spill and mess, finger-shaping portions was no longer the preferred option.
Snus Portion Size
We know that loose snus has undergone several changes over time and that portion snus has a developed into a number of different forms. These are mini, super slim, slim and large in shape and size. Those using snus will be aware that these names are a reflection of the pouch size. Large is the largest, most common and the original portion. Slim offers an optimized under lip fit, although it is like the large in length but slimmer. Those requiring an even more discreet and slimmer pouch will love the latest Super Slim addition. The smallest, discreet pouch, almost invisible to others is the Mini Portion.
Snuz Portion Variety
There have been more changes to snus products in recent days than most realise. Besides the Original Portion which is moistened after being packed in pouches, White Portion was launched in 1998. This is not moistened and offers a longer-lasting nicotine flavour that is drier, for less salivation. For those wanting a lower proportion of tobacco combined with cellulose, the All White snus pouch is the answer. Experiencing the effects of taste and nicotine may take several seconds because these portions are totally dry. The all-white pouch serves to make these appear whiter than the more common White Portion.
