XR Free Nicotine Pouches

XR Free; yes a General XR brand snus which isn't snus as it is tobacco-free.  The flavor is tobacco but this is a nicotine pouch!  I guess it was inevitable but I was hoping Swedish Match would stick to ZYN or other new brands to market their nicotine pouches.  No one respects history anymore...  8mg/gr of nicotine per pouch;  20 tobacco flavored pouches per can.

Nicopod fans try it!

More info

  XR Free is a nicotine pouch using tobacco as its flavor.  The "Free" in the name refers to "tobacco free", not the price.  I guess I can't blame Swedish Match too much; Skruf started adding nicotine pouches to the Skruf tobacco product line a few years ago.  At least SM does a better job differentiating XR Free as a tobacco free product than Skruf does with its naming process.

  There are a few "tobacco flavored" nicopods on the market today but XR Free had better be the BEST tobacco flavored/tobacco free pouch out there.  XR and General snus in particular have a reputation to uphold!

A quality product with a horrible taste.

I usually rate snus / nicopods on a 5/5 scale. I rate can design, portion material, aroma, flavor, longevity, and nicotine strength. This one ended up with a decent score for me, because it's a quality product. A solid can, a nice pouch, a long lasting flavor, and a good/steady release of nicotine.

That being said, in terms of aroma and flavor, it was awful. And I'm a General fanboy. It hurts me to say it. But it tastes like leftover, room temperature Jagermeister from the night before. I'm not a fan.

It’s... interesting

I snapped this up eagerly, and was very excited to see what the General interpretation of a nic pouch would be like. After having had a few, I’ll say that it’s interesting.
The filler and pouch are of average quality- nothing to complain about. Not the fluffiest pouch I’ve had, but certainly not the loosest.
To be clear, though the intent may have been to replicate the flavor of tobacco, I did not get a tobacco vibe here. The flavor is overwhelmingly that of dried, powdered cayenne pepper, with hints of salted licorice. Which sounds pretty grim, but actually ends up being a rather simple, pleasant flavor, one of the better non-minty flavors I’ve had in a white pouch.
With that being said, though I like cayenne pepper, this is not an everyday snus for me. It can be pretty nice after a meal, but after it’s finished I have no desire to pop another- the flavor is just a little too heavy-handed. This is not a ‘refreshing’ snus, in other words.
Still well worth a try, especially if you like a more savoury pouch.
