G3 Load Super Strong (Slim White Dry) - Review. 22 February 2018.

First of all - yes, the name. Since this product was announced I've seen the reaction to the name. I won't go into it, but naming a product that goes in your mouth "Load" probably wasn't the best idea. Okay, now that we've got that out of the way let's talk about the snus. Swedish Match has been exploring the "super strong" category lately, releasing products such as G3 Volt, followed by G3 Wire. Now we have G3 Load, another super strong release! The flavor description for this snus says, “General G.3 Load Slim White Dry Super Strong Snus has a mellow and spicy tobacco taste with notes of licorice and eucalyptus, along with hints of anise, cocoa, and honey.” This product comes in a 16.6 gram can with 24 portions, for 0.69 gram portions. The nicotine content is 26mg/g (2.6%), which breaks down to 17.98mg/portion.

You may notice the can says "Black Velvet Flavored".  First of all, I have no idea what "black velvet" tastes like. The only thing I could find was a recipe for something called Black Velvet Cake, which appears to be similar to red velvet, but is made with black licorice.  I'll be honest, it sounds delicious.

Going into this one, I wasn't sure what to expect. The flavor description sounded very complicated. When I open the can, the aroma seems to be a present smell of menthol/eucalyptus with a present smell of black licorice. The portions are the dry white variety, but they are very soft, as well! The flavor is a present taste of black licorice, menthol, and eucalyptus. I notice a little honey the longer I have it in, but I never picked up any cocoa. The nicotine comes on pretty quickly, and has a nice kick to it. It is, like the name says, super strong. The flavor lasts a good amount of time; I’ve found I can enjoy this one for well over an hour.

So, it wasn't as bad as I expected.  It's not something I would order again, though.  It's like a blend of a honey/menthol cough drop but with some licorice mixed it.  This one might be fun to order when I have a sore throat or cold, but get burned out on using Catch Eucalyptus.
