Are you looking for Swedish snus? Then look no further, because… that makes no sense! Genuine Swedish snus may not be sold in the Netherlands or surrounding countries. Only in Sweden and Norway is the sale legal, but also Swedish stores should not send it to you. But don't be sad! We have something at least as good: nicotine pouches. This is a product that is also called 'snus' in the Netherlands, but is slightly different from Swedish snus. We would like to tell you what the differences and similarities are between these pouches and Swedish snus.
What is Swedish snus?
Swedish snus is made from tobacco. To be precise, it is finely ground, moist tobacco, mixed with salt and flavors. This Swedish snus is sold both as loose tobacco and in small bags. Place the tobacco under your lip, where the nicotine is released. After a while, throw the tobacco away again. So it looks a bit like chewing tobacco, with the difference that you don't have to spit. The advantage of snus over smoking is that you do not burden your lungs and saddle others with smoke.
What are nicotine pouches?
Nicotine pouches are small bags that you also place under your lip, with nicotine but without tobacco. Because it contains no tobacco, this product can be sold here. The use is almost identical to that of Swedish snus. You put the bag under your lip and leave it there for a while, while the nicotine and the desired aroma are released. Nicotine pouches come in all kinds of flavors and strengths, so that there is always something you like.
What are the main differences?
Besides the fact that Swedish snus is not for sale here and nicotine pouches are, pouches have several advantages over 'real' snus. Because the pouches do not contain any tobacco, you do not get any other unnecessary and / or harmful components of tobacco besides the nicotine. Nicotine pouches do not get tobacco stains on your teeth. The pouches are also easier to use than loose snus: the bags are soft, clean and flexible. Finally, the range of flavors and strengths in pouches is large. So there is always a variety that suits you!
