Our General, Portion Review
Introduced in 1985 by Swedish Match, General Portion snus is one of the most popular brands in Sweden. General portion is classified as a regular type portion meaning that each one goes thru a final step in the manufacturing process that adds a bit more moisture to each that aids the flavors in the snus to marry together and release it faster in the lip. The material that Swedish Match uses in General portion is the same soft material that they use in all their snus and remains comfortable in the lip for about 2 hours. Each can of General Portion contains 24, one gram portions with each one having 8 mg of Nicotine. The can is made of black plastic with a matte texture and the classic General logo affixed to the lid and yes, there is a used portion compartment in the lid. Now that we know the basics, let's talk flavors! General Portion is sometimes known as General Original and the flavor is just that, original! The handpicked tobaccos from places like Honduras, Africa, Nicaragua and the U.S., among other places, give General portion an earthy, leathery flavor with black pepper and salt in the background. The other flavor element is lemon! Not bergamot like most Swedish snus but lemon. The subtle lemon flavor enhances the earthy flavors in the snus while adding a hint of bitterness that makes the pepper flavor shine thru. The subtle lemon and salty flavors combine with the tobacco and pepper tastes to create a flavor that is distinctly General but, this is our opinion, we want to hear what you think of General Portion! So, why not give General Portion snus a try and add a can or two to your next order. Be sure to leave a review of your own and share with other snus aficionados 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
