General Mini Mint - Review. 8 May 2009
General Mini Mint has a special place in my heart - it is the product that helped me quit smoking. I don't use it anymore, but it's a product I like talking about because of what it did for me. When it launched, it was dubbed the "Camel Frost Killer", because it was a real Swedish Snus product that blew Camel Frost "Snus" out of the water. Many Americans can thank this product for being the one that helped them switch from American "Snus" to real Swedish Snus!
The Swedish Match flavor description for this product says, "This well-balanced blend has distinctly cool peppermint notes for a fresh, lasting release of flavor that makes the most of any occasion. Mini Mint comes in a smaller pouch with less moisture than other blends." According to SnusCENTRAL.com's product details, This product comes in a 6 gram can with 20 portions for 0.3 gram portions. The nicotine content is listed as “medium”, but I'm not 100% sure what that actually is. Over the years I’ve heard it listed as 8mg/g (0.8%) and also 4mg/g (0.4%). If it’s 8mg/g, that’s 2.4mg/portion. If it’s 4mg/g, that’s 1.2mg/portion.
If you're new to snus and looking for a good introductory product, this is a great one to start with. It was the one I quit smoking with, so I always suggest this to anyone new to snus!
