This popular brand of Swedish snus has a mild and sweet tobacco flavour with undertones of fresh herbs and juniper berries. Its name is derived from the city of Gothenburg and it was originally sold in blue cans. Its origins date back to the 1800s, when ports were the ideal locations in which to purchase snus blends. As the Swedish sailors travelled across the sea, they would collect different ingredients for their unique snus blends. Snus grew to become very popular amongst sailors. In 1919 Göteborgs Rapé was officially registered as a brand and it’s known to have some of the best blends and snus flavours.
A unique method of grating was mostly used when snus blends were first produced and this is where the brand name came from, as rapé means grated in French. Nowadays, however, as new technologies were developed and improved, snus is mostly made from ground tobacco, but the name has stuck. Göteborgs Rapé has always been an innovative brand. In fact, in the 1990s the original Göteborgs Rapé blends were the first to be packaged in pure white portions, but still in the iconic blue tins. Today Göteborgs Rapé white snus is sold in a variety of portion sizes and flavours. Let’s take a closer look.
Göteborgs Rapé snus can be enjoyed in many different sizes, flavours, and strengths. The whole range of snus from Göteborgs come in flavours such as mint, elderflower, lime, cloudberry, apple, and original and the sizes are mini, regular and large. The snus also comes in loose form and in white portions. The white portions are dry on the surface and the product inside is moist. This enables low salivation as they are placed under the lip, and a fresh, and long-lasting flavour is released at all times. Ten portions are sold in each can, just enough for each user at an affordable price.
