My jaw was sore for a while after starting back up again - I thought Skoal might be a cleaner tobacco product (than, say, Kayak) but I wonder if it wasn't the culprit.


Any way, I got some General Swedish Snus (I got a tin before when I had a coupon for it) and have been doing that. It's allegedly as clean a "chaw" product you can get, and there is apparently really low levels of oral cancer in Scandinavia where it is more used.


However, there are some problems with it: 24 pouches are expensive. If you can't moderate them (use only 1 at a time instead of 2 or more) you can go through a "tin" quickly.

Moreover, you don't get that "I have a chaw in my mouth" sort of vibe when you insert a pouch.

That said, my sore jaw isn't sore anymore since I started on the tin of General.


Also, if you guys are interested in nicotine-less products, "Grinds" aren't bad. They're made of coffee and apparently one pouch is equal 1/4 cup of coffee, so it's a stimulant in that respect.  https://www.getgrinds.com/

Hey Joe,
I`ve been chewing the General for about a year now. Much easier on the teeth and gums. Skoal pouches are too sweet and Cope was giving me heartburn from hell. I like the General and around here it`s a bit cheaper than the two big brands. it`s not very popular so watch out for old tins.


Yeah I swas getting past due tins from the place I was buying, so now it's a habit to check sell-bsell-by dates when I buy.

How much is general where you're at? Really wish there were more than 24 pouches! The tins are like half empty when new.

I believe they are 4 something a can.



I've been doing the General (mint) for a while now. Since this last post.


Pros and cons:


Pros:

No more jaw soreness of any kind (that I'm aware of)
Flavor lasts a good bit per pouch
My health feels okay since starting exclusively on these
Cravings for real chew has dropped dramatically by throwing one of these in
Far less chemicals in General than, for example, Camel Snus.

Cons:

Expensive (where I am at least - $7.50 roughly a tin of 24 pouches)
The pouches are delicate and can puncture easily
Don't give you the "I have a chaw in" experience
Limited to smoke shops that actually sell this product

I agree with all that Joe, prices have gone up here to.

Yes. All different flavors. It's not bad - I prefer it to "Mint Snuff" and stuff like that.  Chipper Jones I believe endorses them.
