I had previously only tried Skoal snus as it was the only one available to me. While it wasn't bad, I didn't like how it got an acrid taste after 30 minutes. I heard that the Swedish snus was the real deal and another reality altogether. I finally saw General was selling in the area and quickly got a pack of this and I can say it is night and day! It has a nice minty kick and a nice tingle. Unlike the Skoal it doesn't overpower with mint and is a pleasant experience, and it lasts up to an hour or longer depending on how wet your lip is. This is the one that got me really enjoying snus.

I think General Nordic Mint is a decent snus, For me much more a peppermint than spearmint flavor. That’s the good part. The not so good part is that Nordic Mints tastes way to sweet. It’s still much better than Camels mint snuses, but nowhere close to my fav mint snus: skruf Slim Fresh. Unfortunately,it does not appear skruf product will be making their way to our convenience stores anytime soon, so if you see this product in your local stores and your other snus choices are Camel, Skoal and/or Marlboro snus ,choose the General Nordic Mint, It is real, albeit sweet, Swedish Snus. Compared to American snus, this is not a bad snus at all.

Have tried most of the Large & Long White Snus brands and flavors. I am a non-smoker so tend to opt for the less tobacco rich types. The New General Classic White Mint Snus is the best flavor that I have ever used. I enjoyed the dry mini mint but the flavor and enjoyment just didn't up-size very well at all to the Large White Mint i.e. no real depth or contrast of flavor over time. On the other hand, the new Classic White Mint has been well worth the gamble that Swedish Match have taken to enhance the traditional recipe. The blend of mint & vanilla is simply perfect and the subtle notes of the original general white remain in the background throughout. I would say that this new product will appeal to a lot more Snusers than some other reviews suggest; a great morning & evening Snus for the seasoned user. Perfect balance for new users and female users. This product is going to capture a serious share of the market and introduce more new users to join our party...

I'm nearly done with the first of the two of these i recently received,and i am kickin myself for not ordering more.i have pretty much used only skruf slim as far as mint snuses go,and when i first tried this one,i was thrown off a bit with the hints of vanilla in the taste,but this stuff has really got to me of late.if odens wintergreen reminds u of some type of cream soda and you like it,u will enjoy this one too,kind. Of a creamy minty soda.anyways,this is by far the best general snus i have ever had.if you are weary of mint snuses but are looking for something a little different,give this a try.very good and unique taste.gotta change my rating to 5 stars!!

To be honest, I haven't tried many different kinds of Swedish snus. My rotation has been limited to General White, Mint, Nordic Mint, and Wintergreen; Goteborgs Rapé Lime; and Oden's Kanel. General Large Mint has been my daily snus for a long while now and was my favorite until I tried their Classic White Mint. It was instant love. The blend of vanilla, pepper, and mint with the tobacco is perfect. And the flavor lasts the entire time I have the portion in. I ordered 30 cans with my first order on a gamble that I would like it well enough to at least use it all over time. My expectations weren't that high; none of the other flavors I had tried were enough to tear me away from the General Mint, which I can easily get locally for a reasonable price. I always thought that local and cheap would trump flavor. But I was wrong. I can't get enough of this snus and just ordered another 30 cans. Now I just need to find room in my freezer.

I am 28 years old. I have been a smoker since i was 16. About a month ago i started dipping because I could not breathe at all. I found dip to tear my mouth up badly, and spitting to be so annoying. At my smoke shop I talked to the proprietor about snus. He taught me what he knew about it and suggested I try some cheaper ones and see how I liked it. I tried Camel SNUS Winterchill (which is a wrapper shy of being a stick of winterfresh gum) and Skoal Smooth Mint (which had such large portions and nasty after taste that it would give me a splitting headache minutes into it. So I did my research. I learned about the magic that is Swedish Snus. Now the problem was - finding it. I turned up some General Nordic Mint at my local gas station believe it or not! And it is a match made in heaven. There is absolutely no comparing American snus to Swedish snus. I recommend skipping over the American stuff all together. Nordic Mint has an amazing fresh snus scent when you open the tin. With a nice mint overlay. It’s not to sweet, but its sweet enough to satisfy the American palate. The nicotine hit is way more potent than the American versions I tried as well. The aftertaste is a little sweet but goes away quickly. The portion size is perfect for discretion as well. I am happy to find real Snus in my local gas station and I think everyone should try it (who is a tobacco user) I can't wait to print my General coupons and try some General White Portions, time to step up into the major leagues!

This is pretty good snus. I have used well over 100 cans of this stuff (mainly in part to it being one of the only Swedish snus available in retail stores here in the US) and I like it. The mint is strong, almost candy like which is good and bad. Perfect after a meal but bad with coffee or whiskey, lol. Seems some tins are a little juicier than others but they are pretty consistent overall. The nic could be a little stronger; I do find myself wanting more nicotine before the flavor runs out at times. I get about 45 minutes per portion before the nicotine wears off but the flavor has lasted me up to a few hours. The portions are kind of the longer looking type but fit nice and soft in the gums and are easily concealable if that’s a concern. I use them all the time and nobody has a clue. I can HIGHLY recommend this snus if you are a camel snus user, dump the camel and give this a try, you will likely never go back. I used camel occasionally because it was available here in the US and the difference is night and day. Camel snus just feels like a chemical bomb compared to these. I would give it a 5 but the fact I can't enjoy it with coffee holds me back from it being my full time choice.

I've been using Camel Snus for about two years when I quit smoking and just recently switched to General. Wow, what a difference. I don't have to use two portions at a time, they're not dry, they don't scratch my gums, and then there's taste. I was so used to Camel that the first one tasted overly salty, but by about the third portion it was the other way around: General tastes smooth, has a nice mint flavor (the Nordic mint has a little more tobacco flavor than, say, the large white portion mint), and Camel tastes like some kind of sugary placebo. After using Nordic mint for a few hours, I put a Camel snus portion from an open can in my mouth for 5 minutes, then threw it away, then threw the rest of the Camel Snus away. I give Nordic Mint 4 out of 5 stars (bear in mind I'm very new to real Swedish Snus), My favorite right now is the General white portion mint, but there's a bunch of other kinds here that I have yet to try. If you're using Camel Snus now, you have to try real Swedish Snus like these.
