Swedish Snus manufacturer Gotlandssnus AB, makers of the Jakobssons, Gotlands, and Gotlandssnus brands of snus, suffered a defeat at the hands of the US FDA, a source in Sweden reported.

Gotlandssnus has been selling the Jakobsson's brand of snus over-the-counter in a limited number of US stores for the past two years.

Greetings Snus Lovers!

It's great to finally be back at the Snustopian Embassy here in the SnusCentral bunker. Although it took some time and a bit of bribery before Moe remembered where he'd put the keys, I'm really looking forward to reviewing all the new Swedish snus brands that have been released during my hiatus.

The first set of snus brands we'll be taking a look at arrived at the embassy by carrier UNZ meaning that when Moe finally gave me the keys, he handed me a box with a message scribbled on it saying "First". When I opened the mystery box, a snus brand I've never seen before greeted me, or so I thought. That snus brand is General G.3 Extra Strong Slim White portion snus. So, let's dive right into the review and you'll see what I mean by "or so I thought"...

Say NO to the EU Snus Ban!You may have recently seen in the news and on SnusCentral.org that the EU is suing Denmark for continuing to sell snus. Denmark sells snus? Isn't snus banned throughout the EU with the exception of Sweden? Well, yes and no; yes in that it is banned, but Denmark has continued to sell loose snus.

How has this happened I hear you cry? Well loose snus was legal in Denmark despite the TPD banning oral tobacco that wasn't chewed, only portion snus was banned (I can't actually work that one out and I haven't found anything online saying why).

Denmark decided to enact legislation banning the sale of loose snus by March 2013 following a threat from the EU in October 2012 to haul them before the courts for continuing to allow the sale of snus. Denmark put the proposal before its parliament and they voted to not ban snus.  The simply were not going to be bullied by the EU so loose snus sales continued....
