Wish I could give 6 to counter the other reviews

I am not sure why there is so much negative feedback on this snus. Let me start by saying that this is my new favorite snus. I used to be a very loyal Skruf Fan and would use Skruf stark white as my go to portion. However, this has become my new favorite. The flavor is different from what most people are used to, but the flavor is done correctly. The flavor is not over powered or simple but it does seem to be well balanced and a nice change from the normal snus. There is a cherry flavor, but this is mixed with other flavors, including some type of cinammon or spice. The portions provide a nice subtle spicey heat with a mellow flavor that lasts. Additionally, these portions are large and the nicotine level is high, so if you are a regular heavy snuser like me, this will help to scratch an itch.

My recommendation is pickup a few cans. The first can will get you intrigued and by the second and third, you should get a real understanding for this snus. Do not let the negative reviews below turn you off from trying this product. Even if it is not your thing, I don't think anyone can say that this product was poorly executed.

    Threw it out!

    I tried, really tried, to like this but about 8 portions was enough for me. Tasted like cherry cough syrup. In the mean time, SM has discontinued NJ Strong and NJ Strong White??? Baffling.

      Some love it, I hate it

      I was excited by the whole "It tastes like Dr. Pepper". No. I tried 2 pouches 2 different times after smelling it (which was not pleasant), and ugh! I couldn't keep it in. It looked so promising but I just couldn't

        Seems to be Hit or Miss, its a HIT for Me

        I got excited when I saw this because I love Dr, Pepper. I was not disappointed. Granted it is very sweet and if that isn't your thing no problem, but pairing this with a Diet Dr Pepper is almost spot on and a great combo!!

          AWESOME

          I'm an American with an American palate...and THIS. So good!! Very cherry, not too sweet. Terrific!!!

            10/09/2017

            Definitely Cherry

            As for the root beer....I don't taste it. What I do taste is cherry and a lot of it. To me it mimics the American brand of Cherry Skoal which I chewed a lot through my 20s. It is nice having something so close but much better!

            Meh taste

            For me, it usually takes 15 to 30 minutes to start getting the taste of a snus. Since I like Dr. Pepper, this seemed to be an interesting snus for me. I didn't get much taste at first, but after the taste started to develop after 15 minutes, it was overwhelming, way too sweet and a little bit disgusting. The nicotine hit is ok, but I don't think I'll order this one again.

              07/17/2017

              Enjoyable

              I really liked thus snus. I picked up a grab bag of assorted flavors including this one. It is sweet. It is cherry(even pasted on the label). It packs a nice punch from a general portion snus user. Is it a niche flavor, certainly. But to call it sweet mud and garbage is a bit extreme. Of course capitalism will sort that out. Meanwhile if you're looking for a snus that is decidedly different from the original formulas and don't mind sweet, it's a nice journey. It serves as a nice break from everything else.

              Strange taste

              Overwhelming flavor for me, and I do not enjoy the taste. I even enjoy a Dr. Pepper, but this was just not the snus for me.

                03/13/2017

                Too much

                Flavor hits like a ton of bricks. Super sweet and oddly spicy. Like Dr.Pepper infused tobacco. Only gets worse from there.

                Not right for me.

                I love it

                the flavor is pretty much as described... cherry and spice more than actual dr pepper... either way, i absolutely love the flavor, big pouch which is good sometimes.... personally though i wish it was stronger.... if it was stronger i would use it all the time, i realize its prob fine for most people but i gotta have more nicotine than that... so i pretty much use this anytime i am fine with my current nic level... if not i will use something that is at least 2.0 or one of the new 4.3... then throw one of these in later

                  12/31/2016

                  Good, but obnoxious

                  I like one of these on occasion, and I think I'll probably have a can or two in each order.

                  Having said that, I find the sweetness of this snus very obnoxious. It's like dipping your tongue into a vat of artificial cherry flavor and aspartame. (sometimes that's good though which is why I like having it around.)

                  Definitely not a regular use snus for me.

                  If you like very sweet, very strongly flavored snus (and cherry flavored candy) definitely try it.

                  If you are looking for a more relaxed and natural cherry flavor in a snus try Anglaholm instead.

                  Swedish Match: Sell this in America

                  I was really excited to try this one, and quite honestly, it wasn't my favorite. Why 4 stars? Getting to that...

                  It's sweet. Very much like that very popular American-made SNUS. It's not however an artificial flavor.

                  The reviews say it tastes like Cherry Dr. Pepper. It doesn't taste "of" the soda in the way that some tobacco has notes of cocoa, it literally tastes like they soaked the portions in Dr. Pepper overnight!

                  This alone wouldn't have led me to write a review, but there is one remarkable quality to this snus:

                  It got my girlfriend, who's been a user of Camel's snus for many years, to finally switch over to the Swedish stuff.

                  I've been trying to convince her to try the good stuff since we started dating two years ago, but she just said it was "salty" and "weird". She can't get enough of this stuff, though.

                  I went to some of my friends who dip and smoke, and they were seriously impressed. I've handed them General Wintergreen or Mint before and they say "oh, that's neat, kinda salty", but with this people were hitting me up for more before my girlfriend ran off with the rest of the tin! My entire tin is gone and I only tried 2-3 portions myself!

                  I can honestly say I've never had that happen with any other snus.

                  Americans for Americana

                  Like others here, I'd heard there may be mixed reviews on this variety. However, I decided to take a chance on two tins of this and am very glad that I did.

                  As most snus users know, even our favorite tins can get a bit old if we use them without enough variety in between. As the old wisdom says, variety is the spice of life!

                  This is a very welcome addition to my rotation and the strength is good for me. This American gives Americana a ringing endorsement and will be adding it to his rotation.

                  Thank you, Swedish Match!

                  Good Stuff

                  All around good product. Doesn't get soggy after 10 minutes and is a perfect after dinner Snus. One of my favorites from N&J if not my favorite. But then again I have that American palate.

                    08/12/2016

                    Excellent SNUS!

                    When I first opened the can I wasnt sure what to expect flavor wise, it smelled all over the place. The flavor does remind me of Dr. Pepper & Root Beer. I love, love, love this SNUS and will be ordering more. Admittedly this is probably not for everyone but it is worth a try. I let a few friends try it as well and they loved it as well. I normally don't enjoy wintergreen SNUS but the wintergreen is very mild and compliments the other flavors very well. Cheers!

                    Sweet mud

                    I really wanted to like this snus. But. Its pretty bad. As soon as i opened it, the smell is just horribly sickly sweet like cherry chocolate. I finally got up the courage to try one, and its just like sugar chocolate, cherry, some other oddly flavored mud running down your teeth. And as soon as it hits your toungue you just want to spit it out. This is the only snus ive ever had that i really didnt like and probably wont be able to get through the can. I like nick and johnny alot, but i think they need to retire this flavor and put something new out there.

                    Great flavor !

                    This is one has become one of my new favorite snus, I will definitely be back for more. It has a nice taste of tobacco, with a bold cherry and spicy flavor. It indeed tastes a bit like Dr. Pepper, which is a good thing ! The only downside is that the nicotine content is low in my opinion, I do love stronger snus. Stay away if you don't like fruity flavors, this one is definitely not for you.

                    A perfect transition from American Dip

                    I've been trying to transition from the chemical hook of american dip and this was the first that made the transition smooth for me. It's sweet with not an overpowering tobacco taste. Very pleased with this purchase.

                    Nick and Johnny Cherry syrup/Wintergreen

                    The title of this review lets you know what this snus tastes like and whether or not you will like it. The cherry does mask the wintergreen somewhat, but you know its wintergreen. I despise wintergreen, and yet I can handle this. Previous commenters have pretty much already nailed it as far as thoughts on it. I would agree most with the commenter saying it's a good occasional snus, and good with a dr. Pepper specifically. It's like ordering a cherry coke because you know they will actually mix coke with cherry syrup? If you're that person, you will like this best with a soda. Otherwise, you will more likely associate the flavor with cough syrup than the soda.

                      well balanced swedish-american hybrid snus

                      Nick & Johnny Americana Xtra Strong snus is the perfect strength at 1.4% nicotine.
                      This snus will put you somewhere between a nicotine buzz and a nicotine high.

                      Nick & Johnny Americana Xtra Strong has a very American snus flavor similar to Camel Mellow or Camel Robust. It's is not like most swedish snus, which has a very prominent tobacco flavor. It has a very well balanced flavor. I have tried Camel Frost, Camel Wintergreen, Camel Robust, Camel Mellow, Camel Mint, General Mint, Oden's Doublemint Extreme, General Wintergreen, Oden's Melon Extreme, Nick & Johnny Americana Xtra Strong, Crafted Snus Whisky Original by Conny Andersson, and Oden's Vanilla Extreme. Nick & Johnny Americana Xtra Strong is a good snus that I would order again.

                      The pouches are large but not very large.

                      Seriously, Swedish Match? Really?

                      Where do I begin? Nick & Johnny Americana is an abysmal mess of cloying, sweet chemicals and is a basement-level, poor representation of flavored snus.

                      I'm an American woman, and stereotyping says I should be in love with this snus. However I typically dislike sweet snus, such as General Mint & Wintergreen, because usually the flavors overwhelm and mask the tobacco itself. I enjoy snus for its tobacco. If I wanted sweetness, I'd eat a piece of dark chocolate instead. Maybe even with my snus.

                      However, curiosity got the best of me, being a big fan of N&J strong portions, so I added a can of Americrappa, I mean Americana, to my last order.

                      Americana is godawful.

                      Aromas of weak Dr. Pepper and artificial, sugary cherry greet my nose upon opening the can. Very strong, syrupy scent. No hint of tobacco.

                      The good? Portions are well made, properly moist, with no loose snus in the can.

                      Popped one in and fought the urge to spit it out immediately. Kept it in for 30 minutes simply for the sake of snus science. :) Sweet, sweet and more sweet blended with an artificial, chemical concoction of madness. Where to start describing the wrongness in these "flavors"? The cherry is akin to very old school Slurpees from 7-11 stores in the States. If that was the goal here, then Swedish Match succeeded. Weak notes of Dr. Pepper are present, however a distorted version of it. I didn't think Dr. Pepper could taste more artificial, but there it is. Add to this a saccharin-like sweetness, crowding any semblance of tobacco, and you get the picture.

                      Ugh, bad. Just bad. Brushing my teeth and popping a N&J strong white portion restored my palate and faith that Swedish Match really does know how to make a fine snus.

                      Seriously wondering if Americana started off as an April Fool's joke at the factory. Maybe the snus 'chef' was like "Oh! I'm gonna pull one over on the ol' boss. Throwing whatever diabetes-inducing sweet flavorings i can find into a batch of my lowest-grade tobacco... What a hoot!" But the joke got outta hand, the boss loved it, and labeled it Americana.

                      Unless you have a dead tongue void of taste buds, have a penchant for candy, or simply love punishing yourself, please save your money and avoid this mess.

                      Nick & Johnny Americana Xtra Strong

                      Finally, a Snus I despise!

                      Nick & Johnny Americana Xtra Strong has to be the nastiest Snus flavor I experienced.

                      This flavor I get is straight Cherry cold medicine/NyQuil. Yeah, sounds good right?

                      I'm not sure what Swedish Match was thinking but I will give it 2 stars for good nic hit and great portion quality.

                      Not sure how others got Dr Pepper its more like Dr puke. :) I warned you!

                      Good in small doses

                      I thought I reviewed this one but guess not so here it goes. Upon first try, this was a 5 all the way. This is the best snus if you are a cola head such as myself. It's not the flavor matches cola perfect, it's that it tastes spectacular WITH a soda. Grab a can of Dr Pepper and pop one of these and you will be in heaven. My only complaint is the flavor and heavy nic content can be a bit wearing on you, they are both VERY powerful and if used as a daily snus it gets a little old after a few days and you start to crave a regular tobacco flavor/etc but man, I pop one of these in and hit the local arcade, order a soda and play a few games of Ms Pac man, it just doesn't get any better, great occasional snus!

                      Got this in a mix I ordered but am not a huge fan of cherry. Decided to give it to my landlords ranch hand who smokes pipe tobacco all day. He never tried snus before but was man enough to give it a shot with his back round chewing plugs. Dude dove in head first and almost put two portions in before I suggest he only try one. Asked him how it was and he claimed great. Told me he liked the nicotine hit and that they were pretty good. Tastey too.

                      I just received my first order from SnusCentral and the service was great, I ordered on Sunday and got my package Wednesday morning. I wasn't sure at first if I would like Captain Yankee but I will definitely be ordering more. It has just the right amount of sweetness for my palate and the flavor tastes just like a cherry flavored jolly rancher. This is a good snus if you're craving something sweet.

                      I almost feel like General is making fun of my unrefined N. American palate with the name and flavor of this one. It tastes like someone spilled root beer and dr. Pepper on otherwise decent snus. I like the sweet varieties, but this stuff is totally un-snus-able. I like the over the top "American" graphics on the packaging which is a bit like looking at my national culture through a fun house mirror. Unfortunately the flavor tastes like a fun house floor...

                      It was worth a try. If you like flavored snus that tastes like cherry pipe tobacco you
                      Might like this

                      It smells similar to Dr pepper, however the taste is largely cherry. A very strong taste, so I would advise enjoying flavoured snus, if you efer natural or a light flavour this may be too strong. As for the strength of nicotine, not too bad, enough of a kick to get your attention but won't knock your socks off. For me this is a fun novelty, something to enjoy once in a while but not for everyday use.

                        02/03/2014

                        This snus was just OK to me. Not my favorite, but didn't totally dislike and certainly didn't waste the can. It has a cherry flavor to it. It took me a little while to appreciate it. The flavoring had a slight chemical aftertaste to me personally. However, it's still a decent taste. I'd say it's probably worth a try if you like flavored snus.

                          09/11/2013

                          Just received two cans of this today. I'd say it's not terrible, just a bit... different. Smell is strong in the can, (cherry mostly & a bit of root beer) which might be a good thing, because others smell it while you use it :-) It's strong enough, (stronger than average) though it's no Oden's extreme. Captain Yankee isn't an instant favorite, but is very good for a change of pace. Definitely would recommend this!

                            09/03/2013

                            I've been very curious about this since it was announced, as the flavor profile sounded unique to say the least.

                            I strongly advise you to listen to the other reviewers - DO NOT smell this snus. It's weird. Not terrible, but not in my mind pleasant.

                            Upon popping a portion in, I am reminded of that cherry-scented pipe tobacco you get in the store - a sweet cherry flavor that is like smoking a pipe. There's a tingle in the lip which is probably the wintergreen and/or cinnamon. The flavor isn't dominating in the mouth, which may be good. But it is a nice flavor, especially with that smoky cherry pipe tobacco flavor. My one lament is when it drips, that cherry flavor just overpowers your mouth. That aside, it's definitely worth trying.

                              Nick And Johnny Americana Xtra Strong Portion Snus is an exciting snus with flavor inspiration from America's Rootbeer and Dr Pepper - a full-bodied tobacco character with clear tones of Cherry, wintergreen and cinnamon!
