I’ve struggled with this article. I’ve been putting it off for weeks. Larry has been hounding me. Moe has been threatening me with all sorts of dire warnings. Still I’ve been fighting it. I know why. I just haven’t had the courage to write I feel. The simple truth is there is nothing new about XR snus except the labels. Sorry kids but there is no way to sugarcoat that fact......
V2 Tobacco announced today that the Thunder Snus Limited Edition for 2015 will be released in June. As with previous Thunder Snus Limited Editions, the 5 new Thunder Extra Strong snus flavors will come 2 cans each in the giant Limited edition snus can.....
A limited time 50% Off snus celebration and 3 new video snus reviews are the main topics of this week's SnusCENTRAL Newsletter.
To paraphrase Mark Twain, the reports of the death of the General Snus Reduced Harm Tobacco Product (MRTP) application have been greatly exaggerated.
Friday afternoon, the anti-all-tobacco crowd and media immediately began reporting that the FDA Tobacco Products Scientific Advisory Committee (TPSAC) had "turned down" the General Snus application; that "approval was denied", that the MRTP application had been "voted down" and in the case of Matthew Myers of Tobacco Free Kids, the Swedish Match application was "poorly written" and "full of holes".
As more information about the TPSAC deliberations began to trickle out, a different picture began emerging.....
Nick & Johnny Small Batch Licorice Slim White portion snus is a fantastic new addition to the line. It's so good in fact, I am considering forgiving them for discontinuing Nick & Johnny Black...
This morning Swedish Match made official this month's latest new snus rumor: Nick & Johnny Small Batch Snus. The first of the Small Batch series, Nick & Johnny Small Batch Licorice Slim White Portion Snus, is being released today...
Both the US dollar and the Swedish Krona are up against the Euro. Today one dollar would buy 1.05 Euro, a huge drop from 1.40 about a year ago.
What this means for American users of Swedish snus is that while snus prices (and taxes) are rising in Sweden, they are dropping dramatically for Americans buying Swedish snus from eStores in Sweden....
The battle for market share in the Swedish and Norwegian snus markets has been taking a toll on snus industry leader Swedish Match. Today SMAB announced their latest salvo in the Swedish snus market war with a new snus brand: XRANGE....
[UPDATED 30 March 2015]
Swedish Match has lifted the information embargo on XRANGE Snus so we're finally able to publish the uncensored version of the original article without getting our legs broken (hopefully).
Here it is with a new name: Swedish Match XRANGE Snuses Released and Why?
[Edited 03:00 27 Feb 2015]
The article originally featured here has been removed at the very strong request of Swedish Match as the information it contained was not intended for public release until a date closer to the Week 16 projected launch of the XRANGE Brand.
Below is the XRANGE information authorized by Swedish Match from a press release they issued yesterday. This will have to suffice until we approach Week 16. I need a drink...
Mid-April will see the launch of a brand new snus series – XRANGE.
The products in this series have a long lasting taste experience and are less prone to drip, compared to other large pouches from Swedish Match.The new range – XRANGE – from Swedish Match consists of five pouch products that all have the familiar taste experience from the Swedish Match collection of snus products.
At the same time four products will be discontinued from today's the snus collection: Catch Pure Mint Medium Slim, General Tailored White, Göteborgs Rapé Slim White Large and General Long Original.
The loudest sound in the Swedish snus industry lately has been the silence. There have only been a few new products worthy of note released so far in 2015, some with little fanfare.
V2 Tobacco, makers of Thunder snus, Offroad snus, and Phantom snus will be releasing a new product in early March. They are also busy formulating five new flavors for the next Thunder Snus Limited Edition.....
The LAB 03 is the latest addition to Swedish Match's The LAB brand of snus. It fills the regular nicotine strength hole left by the delisting of LAB 01 in 2014 but where 01 was a wet portion, LAB 03 is a white portion.
The difference between the two types of portions is that white portions forgo an addition drop of water during the production process. This leaves the pouches dry to the touch and gives the pouches a whitish color, hence the classification "white portion".
All LAB series snuses are also slim portions which fit more comfortably in the mouth and boast a "non-drip" release when compared to traditional snus pouches.
Where LAB 03 breaks away from its other numbered brethren is something called "Strong Effect". According to my Swedish to English translation software, Strong Effect essentially means although 03 is a regular strength snus, it gives you the feeling of using a strong nicotine snus. What the hell does that mean?
Having finished my first can of LAB 03, I'm ready to explore this unique concept for a snus with you.....
When the Unz Family Snus Dynasty launched the new and improved SnusCentral.com Snus Shop website a few months ago, they made the questionable choice of giving Moe Unz his own blog.
Swedish snus legend Moe Unz penned this piece for his blog, Moe Unz: The Blog! He did so prior to New Years Eve since he knew he would be stinking drunk by the time this article published.
You can read Moe's peek into Swedish snus 2015 and other 2015 snus news. It is suprisingly coherent, at least for him.....
