New General G3 Products - Updated 9 April 2015.

Post updated 9 April 2015:  A few weeks ago, a source close to Snubie.com supplied us with info and photos of a 4 new G3 products.  Today, Swedish Match sent us the rest of the story, as well as product information of each product! 

When it comes to the new G3 products, Swedish Match says, "G.3 is the third generation snus by General. The first generation is the loose snus from 1866 by Johan A. Boman. The second generation, the portion snus, was introduced in the 1970’s. And now the third generation is here – G.3 by General. 

During May the series will grow with the introduction of four, new products: Slim Original Normal Strength, Slim White Normal Strength, Slim White Liquorice/Mint and Slim White Mint."

Some of these new products may sound similar to the new XRANGE line, so when we get our hands on them to do a review, we'll also do a comparison of each product in the XRANGE line and the new G3 line.

G3 NORMAL STRENGTH SLIM PORTION 

Flavoring description:  A spicy tobacco taste with notes of bergamot and hints of tea, hay and leather.

Format description:  A long and narrow pouch for an optimized fit under the lip. Has a slightly moistened surface for a quick release of flavor.

NOTE:  This is a 21.6 gram can with 24 portions, whereas XRANGE is an 18.9 gram can with 21 portions.
G3 NORMAL STRENGTH SLIM WHITE PORTION 

Flavoring description:   A mellow and spicy tobacco taste with distinct notes of citrus and bergamot, along with hints of leather and tea.

Format description: A long and narrow pouch for an optimized fit under the lip. Dry on the surface to prevent dripping, and with an extensive release of flavor.

NOTE:  This is a 21.6 gram can with 24 portions, whereas XRANGE is a 16.8 gram can with 21 portions.

G3 NORMAL STRENGTH SLIM WHITE PORTION LICORICE/MINT 

Flavoring description:  A mellow tobacco taste with distinct notes of liquorice and eucalyptus, along with hints of herbs.

Format description:  A long and narrow pouch for an optimized fit under the lip. Dry on the surface to prevent dripping, and with an extensive release of flavor.

This is a new product, no comparison to XRANGE.
G3 NORMAL STRENGTH SLIM WHITE PORTION 

Flavoring description:  A mellow tobacco taste with distinct notes of peppermint, along with hints of eucalyptus and cedar.

Format description:  A long and narrow pouch for an optimized fit under the lip. Dry on the surface to prevent dripping, and with an extensive release of flavor.

NOTE:  This is a 16.6 gram can with 24 portions, whereas XRANGE is a 16.8 gram can with 24 portions.  So in this case, XRANGE has a little more tobacco.  Not sure how the flavor of this one will compare - if it will be closer to General Mint or Catch XRANGE Mint.


Original Post: 27 March 2015:  A source close to Snubie.com has supplied photos of 4 new products being added to the General G3 line.  Late last year, Swedish Match replaced General Long Extra Strong with General G3 Extra Strong Original and General Long Extra Strong White with General G3 Extra Strong White.  It now looks as though 4 new products have been added to the G3 line.

We previewed XRange from Swedish Match a few weeks back, and these products don't resemble the early mockups I saw of the XRange cans, so at this time I'm unsure if these are new products, or if these are the XRange products.  However with General Long Original, General White Tailored and Catch Pure Mint being replaced, these could potentially be their replacements.  Which does beg the question - did Licorice Mint replace the replacement for Goteborg's Rape White Slim?
