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.
Fully Loaded comes in a 34.02 gram can (or 1.2oz), so the weight is like 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 Full Nicotine Strength 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. You can feel the nicotine on this one. This one is the "Fully Loaded" version, which is said to have the full nicotine strength. It wasn’t overbearingly strong, but I could still feel the nicotine. It was comparable to other dip products I’ve had before. 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.
