Catch Collection Madison Avenue Review

Madison Avenue Rich Mint

Swedish Snus Review

The first thing that hit me when I put this portion under my lip was – This reminds me of a mint
candy my grandmother used to buy when I was a kid. I got a little nostalgic. It was a mint-toffee kind of candy and I remember my grandmother always carrying these mint-toffee’s in her purse during the time she was trying to quit smoking.  Me and my sister loved walking around with her in the city, because every 15 minutes we would stop and get a candy. My grandmother was very close to me and even though she died when I was nine, I still miss her a lot. I have the cigarettes to blame for her being ripped out of my life far too early.


Mmmmm Mint!

This is one of the best mint flavors I’ve tried. It has both a little sweetness and a saltiness to it. The mint flavor combined with the hints of caramel is a perfect match. You can also still taste the tobacco very mildly in the background. It’s a very fresh, rich mint flavor that gives you a nice subtle burn under your lip. What makes me sad is that this is a Catch Collection snus which means that this flavor will eventually go away and be replaced with a new one. I really want Madison Avenue to stay!! I might just start a petition for that!

A Nice Treat

I carried this snus with me on our road trip to Grand Canyon last week. With an angry 1 year old screaming in the backseat this was a much needed treat. The nicotine at 4mgs per portion doesn’t really do it for me, but that means I can use them more often and with this amazing flavor I tend to pop another portion in after just a while. It’s good to know you can do that without worrying about suffering from a nicotine overdose. 

The Organized Snus

This is a white mini portion snus and I could easily use 2 at a time if I needed more of a nicotine buzz. The portions are pretty moist compared to other white portions so you still get the freshness from a white portion but without the feeling of it sucking all the moisture out of your mouth. I also like Swedish Match’s mini snus cans. They are cute and tiny and fits into my small purse packed with other things I don’t need, but forget to take out (like my 1,5 inch pile of old receipts and coupons). Since I’m obviously pretty unorganized it’s good to have something that is, and this snus as well as many other Swedish Match products has the neat star formation which means the portions are organized in a star pattern as you can see on the picture below.


Overall this is a really good snus, I don’t have anything negative to say about it except maybe you would want a little higher nicotine level, but then again that’s easily fixed; These portions are small so you can easily have two in at the same time. This is a really good snus with a flavor that to me is just divine! It took me back a lot of years to good memories hidden away somewhere back in my mind. I’ll make sure to pick up a few more of these before they disappear from the market!
Thank you Swedish Match for an awesome snus!
