General is my all time favorite.  Prefer original portion or XRANGE slim original.

Why do you prefer original over white, never understood that?
  Couldn't one simply wet one if needed?
  Figured I'd ask..

They are quite different, in my experience. Besides being dry, I think in the White they use a different snus formulation. And the Original isn't just wet, it's been sprayed with tobacco juice and it has a faster nicotine release, but the flavor doesn't last as long as the White portion (which has a longer lasting flavor, but a slower nicotine release, because it's a dry pouch). I've used a lot of both varieties.

Thanks man, I kinda underestimated the idea I guess.
  So nicotine delivery is faster with original portions?
I had no clue and I need faster at the moment.

Do you get more of a lemon taste or bergomont from Onyx?

Sorry for the late response! Yes, the original portions generally have faster nicotine delivery partly due to the increased moisture. The White portion will have longer lasting flavor, since it starts out more dry feeling, and I find that they take longer to get soggy or oversaturated than original.

I keep any kind of snus portion in as long as possible, sometimes as much as two hours, but sometimes only a half hour, as long as they have a hint of flavor and I don;t want more nicotine. When they get real "slimy" feeling and lacking much of any flavor, I usually get annoyed because the portion wants to slide around more.

Also, I noticed recently on the Generalsnus.com website, that they list Original portions as having 8.5 mg of nictotine strength, and White portions (including Mint and Wintergreen) as having 8 mg nicotine strength. So the Original apparently has a bit more nicotine in it to start with. They also list Original as "Strong" in nicotine strength and the other varieties are listed as "Medium" strength.
