    Hi I vape and really enjoy. Would like to give snus a try as well. Is the American camel brand good ? Any particular American brand ? Appreciate any advice. Thanks !

    I started with the camel. It's not too bad. Swedish snus made by General can be bought many places in the US.

    I second General Swedish snus. It's pretty mild with good flavor.

    Swedish snus all the way. I love General's mini mint white portions.

    I've tried Camel and Marlboro snus both were way too sweet for me. General is my all day brand between the original and the mint. No wintergreen though, that stuff is a bit overpowering for my tastes.

    Hi, sorry I just saw this thread. Welcome! Almost everyone posts in the What's under thread. Ditto on the General. They have a web site where you can find where they sell it. You may want to double check though. I haven't been on it lately, but it wasn't completely accurate when I checked it.

    Nothing new to add, for anyone reading, that has the same question. I definitely recommend and regularly use General Snus, as it is sold locally and it is excellent. I like all of the 6 varieties (they used to have 8), really, but white and wintergreen have been my main ones this year. I did not like wintergreen at all a few years ago, but it has really grown on me, and surpassed General Mint as my favorite non "regular" flavor. I've liked all their varieties. I liked General White, Original and Mint the most at first, though. General Loose is defintitely worth trying, it's not as difficult to use Loose snus as it seems, and it's a good deal.

    Though I primarily use General Snus, I also like non-Snus smokeless tobacco and dip, like Copenhagen, Grizzly, Skoal or Timberwolf (they all have pouches, too). It's more easily available, and can be used snus style in the upper lip. I've had a lot of coupons for dip lately, so that also has something to do with it, but it's good for variety. It makes a difference to use the dip like snus in the upper lip, it drastically reduces the need to spit at all.
    I prefer the dip and dip pouches to the American version of Snus, which just isn't as good as the Swedish. The Skoal and Camel SNUS is just not made like General at all, I always feel like I wasted money when I bought those.

    Hi pwillco,

    Nice to meet you. This is an old thread from last year. Most of us post in "What's under your lip" thread. Your message popped up in my e mail so I bounced over to see what was happening.

    You and I are the only ones that seem to like the Wintergreen. I haven't had it in awhile, mainly because I don't get past a store that sells General very often anymore and I'm stocked to the hilt with other stuff, primarily Mint.

    So there are two people in the world that like wintergreen! Who would have guessed?
