General Mini Mint
Our General Dry Mint, White Mini Portion Review
Introduced in 2009 by Swedish Match AB, General Dry White Mini Mint portion snus is classified as a White Mini type portion which means that the portions are half the size of a regular type portion and, do not go thru the additional step at the end of the manufacturing process that adds a bit more moisture to each portion. This leaves the material a bit dry and leaves the color white. Even though the material is dry, Swedish Match uses the same soft material that they use in all their portion snus and is comfortable in the lip for over an hour but, the flavor only lasts for about 45 minutes. Each can of General Mini Mint contains 24 portions that have just less than .4 grams of snus and each portion has 4 mg of Nicotine. General Mini Mint’s can is made of silver metallic plastic and is a bit smaller than a regular can of snus. There is a used portion compartment in the lid as well but, you’re here for the flavors so, let’s take a look! General Dry Mini Mint’s flavor may ring a bell with some seasoned snus users since it’s actually Catch Dry peppermint’s flavor with a new name! To the new snus user, we’ll try to describe the flavor for you. General Mini Mint’s flavor is a cool, peppermint taste. It’s actually a bit sweeter than most Swedish snus and tastes like Starlight mints but not as sweet. There is a slight burn in the lip with Mini Mint but, most mint flavored snus has this characteristic and only lasts for about 20 minutes. As the portion sits in the lip, a subtle earthy tobacco flavor begins to surface and mellows the sweetness out. We’ve had a portion of Mini Mint’s flavor last for about 45 minutes which is pretty good considering it’s only a mini portion but, this is what we think, we want to hear your thoughts! So, why not add a can of General Dry White Mini Mint portion snus to your next order and leave a review of your own to tell us what you taste. We’ll be looking forward to reading it!

Taxes on Northerner in general:
Northerner is required by law to charge applicable tobacco/nicotine tax and sales tax for online orders. Where these taxes apply, the order total during your checkout will be updated and reflect/include taxes. Shipping charges are in general also subject to sales tax in most states.
How is the tobacco/nicotine tax calculated?
State Excise Tax (SET), also referred to as “tobacco/nicotine tax”, is applied in accordance with applicable state and local laws. For tobacco products, all states apply SET, however for Tobacco-Free products most states do not apply any SET.
The way SET is calculated depends on the product category (Tobacco or Tobacco-Free) and the state, and are calculated in one of the following ways:
- based on a % of the wholesale price (cost) to Northerner
- based on Northerner selling price to the customer
- based on weight (per selling unit)
How is the sales tax calculated?
Northerner calculates the sales tax in accordance with applicable state and local laws. Current rates can be found here: State Sales Tax Rates - Sales Tax Institute
Example: Customer shipping address is in California:
SET rate California = 56,93%
Sales tax rate California = 7.25%
Wholesale Cost per can = $3.00
Selling price to customer = $3.99;
SET per can = $3.00 * 0,5693 = $1.71;
Sales tax per can = ($3.99 + $1.71) * 0.0725 = $0.41
Selling price to customer + SET + Sales Tax = Final price to Customer (per can):
$3.99 + $1.71 + $0.41 = $6.11
