Produced by the snus giant Swedish Match, General G3 Strong Mint Super Slim is a mint flavored snus in an ultra slim portion format. Although I’m not the biggest fan of mint snus brands, I am a huge General fan so I was curious to see how G3 Strong Mint would stack up. Each can of G3 Strong Mint comes with .55 gram portions for a total of 16.5 grams of snus per can.
After opening my can of Mint Super Slim, I soon began to notice a strong aroma of spearmint mixed in with hints of wintergreen and not much else. Once I had a portion in, I began to taste the two mint flavors, and I found that they were very natural tasting and didn’t have much in the way of sweet (which is a good thing as I find some mint brands can be a little too sweet for my tastes!). Around the twenty minute mark I began to notice hints of the classic taste of General tobacco, and it coexisted alongside the mint for a while before slowly overpowering it after approximately forty minutes.
I found the portion material to be very soft, and the super slim portion format is definitely interesting. The portions are very long and thin, and they almost wrap around your upper lip to create a discreet effect while still producing maximum flavor. Portions had just a touch of moisture in them, and within a few minutes I began to experience a fairly strong nicotine buzz which I found to be very pleasant. I also found that the portions produced little drip, and as a result I generally kept them in for a little over an hour before removing them due to a decline in flavor.
As a whole, I must say that I was quite impressed with G3 Strong Mint Super Slim, and Swedish Match definitely did a good job on this one. Not only did it have a nice taste of natural mint, the super slim portions were very comfortable and were able to let flavors pass through easily while producing little drip. If you’re a fan of mint dominant snus brands, I definitely recommend trying G3 Strong Mint as it may just end up in your daily rotation!
