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 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.
This one is said to have a “bold and icy mint flavor”. The aroma of Fully Loaded Full Nicotine Strength Mint seems like a mix of mint and menthol. It’s pretty fresh smelling, and not overly sweet, either! 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. This one has a fresh feeling and the lip, and a pretty refreshing taste! It seems to be, like the aroma, a mix of mint and menthol. It has a touch of sweetness to it, but it’s not overly done. You can definitely 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! If you’re looking for a product to replace your mint dip, this would be something good to consider!
