UPDATE 23 May 2016: This is the first time the new Super Slim portion was used in a production environment and machine calibration was more challenging than anticipated.
General G.3 Super Slim Strong Mint Portion Snus is now finally available to purchase!
Psychology has always played a major roll in product development and marketing. Words like bigger, stronger, faster, better, and safer are only a few of hundreds of examples.
Read the active ingredients list on a bottle of Listerine. There is only one: alcohol. I get more oral health benefit from a couple of fingers of whisky and more enjoyment too.
Smokers who have switched to Swedish Snus have long been motivated by snus having the about the same risk factors as French Roast Coffee. In the 45 years since modern Swedish snus has been regulated as a food product by the Swedish National Food Agency (think FDA in US terms), there have been no documented cases of Swedish snus being directly responsible for tooth lose, gum disease, or oral cancer.
This peace of mind has made the transition from smoking to Swedish snus easier, especially for US smokers who have never used oral tobacco or who have a negative impression of smokeless tobacco through American snuff and chewing tobacco.
The mad scientists at Swedish Match took snus psychology to a new level a few months ago by introducing two snuses which potentially improve tooth and mouth health: The LaB 22 Slim White Mint Portion Snus and The LaB 24 Slim White Mint Licorice Portion Snus.....
Swedish sources have confirmed the rumors are true concerning new snus from Gotlandssnus. Official sources in Sweden speaking on condition of anonymity, stated that Gotlandssnus will soon be releasing two new products under their Jakobsson's Snus line.
Jakobsson's Classic Strong Portion will be a high nicotine version of the popular Jakobsson's Classic Portion Snus. We can not confirm but suspect is that the new Classic Strong will contain 14mg/g of nicotine and the higher pH levels also used in Jakobsson's Wintergreen to boost free nicotine levels and provide faster absorption.
Jakobsson's Mint Portion Snus is alleged to have 9mg/g of nicotine. The taste profile will be patterned along the lines of General Large Mint Snus but will be an original portion as opposed to the white portion used in the General Large Mint Snus product.
Both new snus products will contain approx. 20 portions per can like the current Jakobsson's Wintergreen Strong Portion Snus.
Test cans are already available of both with public distribution scheduled at or prior to Week 45, according to our sources in Sweden. Both products are designed for the American market although the Classic Strong Portion may have viability in Norway. Like the USA, Norwegian snus users prefer strong and extra strong snus.
We will update this story as new information becomes available.

As I read my husband’s latest article I figured I should put in my own two cents about my recent trip and the Fellinni White Mini Portions.
Hi, I’m Catherine DeMarsh-Hellwig; also known as Mrs .Mick. Now that Mick is a big time famous columnist he spends most of his time on our computer, reading, researching, writing, and playing Civi Balls. Trying to wrestle the computer away is not an easy task to do, so I had to get sneaky. After he went to bed I searched around the computer desk and found his password list hidden in an empty can of Ettan lös in the back of a drawer. So I thought it would be a great idea to add a guest article to his column. See how long it takes him to notice. No telling him: that would be cheating.
Recently I was forced to take a 4 hour trip on a Greyhound Bus to visit family in a neighboring state for my Uncle’s Memorial and of course one cannot smoke in the station or on the bus. As this was my first time riding a bus anywhere I was a little nervous about my trip. Luckily, before boarding I did make a couple of new friends who also were smokers. (And if by chance they are reading this… thanks for your company and letting me rattle to you on the way to my stop. I hope you made it home safe!)

Editor's Note: This is how it all began. Catherine DeMarsh-Hellwig a.k.a. Mrs. Mick and a simple hacking/column stealing article. SnusCENTRAL is not pressing charges; to the contrary! Mrs. Mick, as you will read, is a fantastic author and brings a point of view previously missing from SnusCENTRAL Columns and from Snus Media in general.
In fact, SnusCENTRAL has a number of women who are very talented writers as you can tell from The Forum. This led to the creation of a new collaborative column: Smoking in the Ladies Room! We've moved this complete article to Smoking in the Ladies Room!.
Greetings fellow snus lovers!
The snus we'll be reviewing today is one that most of you may have ever heard of or seen in the SnusCENTRAL Snus Shop, General Dry Mint mini white portion snus. I say this because not only is it a new snus, it's a snus that's only available in America! How did I find it? Well, while I was out and about last week, I stopped in at the local Pipe and Tobacco shop and saw something new.
My tobacconist has always carried General Snus but this time, there was a snus called General Dry Mint mini. I asked him about the new snus and he really couldn't tell me more than "it's from Sweden" and "it is Mint flavored"! In reality, that's the most common response I get from a lot of tobacconists here in the states!
Since I wanted to know more about General Mini Mint than what he told me, I decided to get a couple of cans and do the research myself. What I found was pretty exciting! So now that I have your interest, let's get started with the review of General Dry Mini Mint portion snus!
General Dry Mint Mini is a Dry, white mini portion snus manufactured in Sweden by the fine folks at Swedish Match. "Hold it, Snus Guy! Back up. Dry, white, mini snus? We need a bit of explanation on this!" You're right! Since we've only reviewed one other white, mini portion snus, let's run through the basics first.
