Smokeless Alternatives in the EU - Oliver Twist

Hola friends!  I know it has been a while since I graced these pages with an article, but there have been things going on. I am not going to go into it here, as it is not the time or the place, but rest assured, I am back with more hard hitting articles, and the usual childish humour I hope you have all come to enjoy.

I have been thinking about a lot of stuff lately, one of the things I thought about after one particularly hideous nightmare was, "what if I couldn't get snus? Ever!". After waking in a cold sweat, I came downstairs and went through my usual insomnia ritual, I took a pinch of snuff, made a herbal tea (don't judge me) and then took another toot of snuff.

[UPDATED] For a snus not even yet released as of this writing, General Kardus Selection 2015 has caused quite an uproar around the world.   In Norway, the entire allocation of General Kardus 2015 has already been pre-sold!

After being sworn to secrecy, I was briefed on General Kardus during my visit to the Swedish Match offices in Stockholm in September 2014.  All the information on General Kardus Selection 2015 was embargoed until Friday, 28 November 14.  At least that was the plan.

On Wednesday, 26 November, Norweigen eTabloid Side3.no blasted out photos and information contained in the Swedish Match Press Kit.  They were followed the next day by Dagligvarehandelen, a weekly industry newspaper for convenience stores and other CPG stores in Norway.

To say I was unhappy would be an understatement.  Since the information unofficially released couldn't be fact-checked, there were a number of errors.  I don't like errors. 

I was also very unhappy with my own SnusCENTRAL Intelligence Agency (SnusCIA) for not only being caught off-guard, but for not getting me early copies of the final graphics.

Now that I officially know, here's everything you need to know about Kardus and General Kardus Selection 2015...

Published in Larry Waters Reports!

17 Nov 2014 - Breaking News:  Swedish Match AB, the world's largest manufacturer of Swedish Snus, will announce this morning that if the Swedish Parliament votes to raise the excise tax on snus, Swedish Match will be forced to respond in kind with price increases for all their their snus products.

If history is any indicator, it is likely other Swedish manufacturers of snus will also raise their prices...
