Fully Loaded Chew is a product that contains nicotine but is tobacco free! Lately, we’ve seen a lot of manufacturers finding new ways to deliver nicotine that are like smokeless tobacco, but with products that don’t contain tobacco. Fully Loaded Chew says their product feels, looks, packs, and tastes like tobacco, but without the tobacco. It is made of arrowroot and mint leaves. Products like this are great for those who want to quit tobacco, but still enjoy nicotine!
Fully Loaded comes in a 34.02 gram can (or 1.2oz), so the weight is similar to dip. It comes in two strengths: Fully Loaded and Half-Cocked. Fully Loaded is said to have the “full nicotine strength”, while Half Cocked is said to have “50% nicotine strength”. I can’t find the actual nicotine content listed anywhere, but Fully Loaded is listed as 2/5 on Northerner.com, which is the same nicotine strength listed for other dip products. Half Cocked is listed as 1/5.
Fully Loaded Classic Half Cooked is said to have an "authentic, straight flavor" which is "sweet, smooth, and rich". When you open the can the aroma is a little sweet, and a little spicy. The material itself (as I'm not sure what to call it since it isn't tobacco) is moist to the touch and feels a lot like long cut dip. It was surprisingly easy to pack in the lip. The flavor is a lot like the aroma. It's a little sweet with some spice in the background. I'm not sure how this stuff is made, but I also pick up a light smokiness in the background. When it comes to the nicotine strength, this one is the "Half Cocked" version, which is said to have 50% nicotine strength. I felt a little nicotine from this one, but it’s not too over the top or anything. However, if your nicotine needs are lower, this one may hit the spot for you. The flavor, on average, lasts about 30-40 minutes! This was an interesting product, and while it's not a clone of the "straight" dip flavor, it's worth a try if you dig that flavor.
