  • New Here & To Snus!

    Hello!


    Just figured I would introduce my self and say Hi!


    As an intro to my nicotine history I smoke cigarettes and cigars as well as occasional vaping. (Can't get enough nicotine!)


    I'm just getting into Snus and have tried Camel Winterchill / Mint & General Wintergreen / White.


    I started out with the Camel as it was the easiest to obtain and was in wintergreen which I absolutely love. (The wintergreen flavor is great and strong with Camel!) The mint flavor was OK but not my bag. At first it burned my gums, as with most people. After about a week I stopped feeling the burn from Camel and decided I should try some Swedish snus.


    Then I found General Snus at a local tobacco shop and was happy to see they keep them refrigerated. Now, THIS STUFF burns. In a damn good way too. I think I had the first nicotine buzz I've had in years. The flavor wasn't as strong as the Camel but it was certainly noticeable. (The wintergreen flavor was very weak but I like it. The white tasted mostly of bergamot almost as if I was having a cup of tea.) I certainly like General's nic strength over Camel.

    I guess I am looking for anymore suggestions on brands to try. I would preferably like to not order online as the shipping is ludicrous.

      Unfortunately, that can't be avoided. Due to the PACT Act of 2010, stores have to ship via a carrier that verifies age upon delivery, which comes with an extra charge.

      However, buying online can be cheaper than buying locally if you buy in bulk. I buy 40 cans every 2 months and my snus is 4.00 per can or less, including shipping. Buying General locally is anywhere between 6.00 and 7.00 per can.

      You get more variety online. In the US you get a few General products, and some Thunder/Jakobsson's in select tobacco shops. But the real variety is online. Local buying in the US you don't get a huge selection.

        I see I see!

        I'm lucky that General is $3.50 a can locally so I might have to stick with that until I start buying in bulk,

        Thanks so much for the response!

          Hi and welcome to our snus community!

          If you enjoy the Wintergreen flavor, we have four different options on Northerner. We also have a lot of different flavors, just go to our Swedish Snus section and take a look
          If you want to learn more about the different products you can read reviews made by snusers for snusers on our Snus Squad

          Have a happy snusing!
          Julia, Northerner

            Sign up on Generals website, and they send you monthly coupons ($2 off 2 cans, $1 off one can, etc).
            Also, SnusCentral and BuySnus often have "15 cans for the price of 10" sales, that takes the sting out of shipping.

              I just signed up yesterday and unfortunately I get the message below when I attempt to get coupons. I live in Mass so I don't know if that's playing a role.

              Edit: Just sent an email to them asking why I can get other snus coupons and cig coupons but not theirs.

                    Welcome to the forum mate!! Glad to have you with us!

                    You will have to tell us what General says to your email. I would be interested to hear
                    When it's my time to go, I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my uncle did....... Not screaming in terror like his passengers

                      Thanks for the welcome!

                      I will most certainly! I'm interested to see how they explain being able to get other coupons but not theirs. [emoji2]

                        Great! Thanks!

                        It helps to see how different companies are responding to the various laws, that way in the future we can either anticipate or better understand why A, B, or C happened instead of D

                        Anyway welcome!

                          I've contributed a few reviews for the Northerner's Snus Squad blog as well. I like that they include various people, it's neat to see varying opinions.

                            Unfortunately General has ignored my email. Maybe they cannot contact people in my jurisdiction relating to tobacco products. Not quite sure here.

                            I'll be emailing them again as it's been a month.

                              It makes no sense. I just got a coupon from General for $3 off on two cans, in Illinois.
                              I've written to Swedish Match before, and gotten a reply the same day. Maybe try them?
