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 similar to 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 actually made of arrowroot and mint leaves.
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 Wintergreen Half Cooked is said to have “a full Wintergreen experience”. The flavor is also said to be “sweet, refreshing [and] balanced”. The aroma of this one is a present, sharp, lightly sweet smell of wintergreen. 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 of this one is a straight up wintergreen flavor. It has a touch of sweetness to it, but it’s definitely not overdone. It’s pretty well balanced! 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! If you are a wintergreen dipper (current or former), this may be a good replacement for you!
