Our General, White Portion Review
Made by Swedish Match in Kungälv, Sweden, General White portion snus is classified as a White type portion which means that they do not put the portions thru the additional step in the manufacturing process that adds more moisture to them. While this leaves the portion material dry, the fact that Swedish Match uses the same soft material they use in all their snus and that the snus its self has more moisture in it than typical snus, makes the portions really comfortable in the lip for well over 2 hours and the flavors to release faster than other White type snus. Each can of General White contains 24, one gram portions that are shaped in the unique “Star” pattern that Swedish Match reserves for only the best snus and each portion contains 8 mg of Nicotine. The can is made of gray plastic with a plasticized label and the General logo on the lid. There is also a used portion compartment that’s concealed under the logo in the lid but, you’re here for the flavors so, let’s discuss that now! Swedish Match describes General White’s flavor as slightly peppery with hints of citrus zest and balanced tobacco notes but we feel the pepper and citrus flavors take center stage here. The peppery note comes from the blend of different tobaccos from around the world that are used in General White and the citrus is bergamot which had a lemon/grapefruit flavor. The salt also plays an important part in the flavor since it enhances the bergamot and actually aids in bringing out the flavor in the tobacco. Overall, General White portion snus is a great snus with a flavor that is truly special but, we want to know what you think! So, why not give a can of General White portion snus a try with your next order and tell us what you think by leaving a review of your own. 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
