Thunder Chewing Tobacco & Chew Bags by V2 Tobacco, Ink Chewing Bags by AG Snus, Cruiser Chew by Gotlandssnus and General Chew Bags, a product made by Swedish Match for sale on the Swiss market. Now, Swedish Match is doing it again and they have released General Cut onto the Czech Republic market and the Danish market. I discovered these products for sale at Mirage-Distribution.cz. Thanks to one of our readers, I was able to get ahold of some of these for review!
When it comes to General Cut Original, the product description says, “General chewing tobacco, cut into slices and packaged into portions, with spicy flavors of tobacco, bergamot and a hint of tea.”
The can weight is 18 grams and contains 18 portions for 1 gram portions. The nicotine content is 14mg/g or 1.4%. That equates to 14mg/g portion or 1.4%/portion. So, it appears that this one is a strong and not a regular strength product.
When it comes to General Cut Original - Extra Strong, the product description says, “General chewing tobacco, cut into slices and packaged into portions, powerful, with spicy flavors of tobacco, bergamot and a hint of tea.”
The total weight of this can is 18 grams, and contains 18 portions. The portions are, of course, 1 gram each. The nicotine content is 18mg/g or 1.8%. And doing the math, that's 18mg/portion or 1.8%/portion. This math is so much easier with 1 gram portions.
If you're in the Czech Republic or Denmark and are looking for snus, this is worth a try. Even though it's branded as "chewing tobacco", I find it to be close enough to snus in all aspects that you won't even notice a difference. It's well worth checking out!
