V2 Tobacco announced today that Thunder Berry Extra Strong Portion Snus has been discontinued effective immediately. Disappointing sales numbers are behind the Thunder Berry delisting.
If you are a Thunder Berry fan, run to your favorite snus store while you can. Once they're out of stock, Thunder Berry ES Snus will vanish into snus history.
On a happier note, V2 Über Director Patrick Vogel revealed the upcoming launch of Thunder Raspberry Extra Strong Portion Snus.
Back in August 2013, V2 released the very first Raspberry flavored snus, the very high nicotine Thunder Ultra Raspberry Portion Snus. At 22mg/g nicotine, the Thunder Ultra Strong snus series is among the strongest snus currently on the planet.......
The NEW SnusCentral.org is almost ready to launch. We need as much help as we can get testing the site before before this Friday, DEC 13 2013, to make sure we didn't miss anything.
Seems like a great way give away some snus!
Just read and follow the steps below by Friday (GMT-6):
After the NEW SnusCentral.org has launched, we will draw random names and send out free snus! Everyone can participate but of course you must be of legal age and be legally able to accept tobacco products in your country to get snus. If you live in the EU, we can send you some excellent Swedish chocolate and maybe a few General Waterproof Snus Cans....
Just writing and publishing this article, we've already discovered a few issues needing correction. Please help us find the rest and deliver you the best SnusCentral.org there has ever been!
Good hunting and Good luck!

Today, FDA announced it was authorizing the sale and marketing of eight Swedish Match smokeless tobacco products in the US.
These first eight are not in the snus category but their approval would seem to indicate that all Swedish Match snus falling within the qualifying date range should easily win approval.
Swedish Match as of last month had 195 product applications on file with FDA.
FDA's traditional "safe and effective" standard for evaluating medical products does not apply to tobacco. Instead, FDA regulates tobacco products based on a public health standard intended to reduce the toll that tobacco use causes.
To legally market a new tobacco product in the United States, a manufacturer must receive a written order from FDA permitting the marketing of the new tobacco product under one of three pathways. These three pathways are:

Never let it be said I have ever met a stranger. New people or strangers are friends I have just not met yet. A couple of weekends ago my husband dragged me to a pipe show along with our friend Chris. Yeah every now and then, once in a blue moon, I have been known to smoke a pipe. So sue me. Sometimes on an overnight fishing trip… while I am standing there on the bank, just as the sun just breaks the hill on the far side, steam levitating off the lake and rising to greet the new day… campfire crackling behind me, soft and smoky like the tasty smoke from my pipe swirling up around my head.
As I lay out other cast across the surface of the then still lake; hoping to drop my lure in that big bass’s mouth merely under the log slightly out of reach from the shore. As much as I love my snus there is nothing like a good pipe in your teeth in the early morning on the bank of your favorite fishing hole while you try to get that one last cast in before you have to pack up and call it done. I am sure you fishermen know what I am talking about.

On 5 September 2013, SnusCENTRAL.org was attacked by what are believed to be A nti-Snus Extremists. These snus terrorists were beaten back but not before doing some damage; especially to our Snus Forum. Mr. Web Developer is working tirelessly to bring us an even BETTER SnusCentral.org and our beloved Snus Forum. Keep checking back here for updates.
ONLY SnusCentral.org has been affected. The SnusCentral.com Snus Shop, SnusCentral YouTube, and SnusGear.com are all hosted by different companies and were not involved.
UPDATE 12/19: At long last, the New and Improved SnusCentral.org is Live!
Snus loving nicotine addicts around the world love this time of year.
Week 36 through Week 42 is when Swedish snus manufacturers traditionally begin launching their new snus releases for the remainder of the year. This year they will be joined by Reynolds American with the release of Camel SNUS Frost Large Portion on September 2nd.
Six years ago, Camel SNUS Frost; the Reynolds American version of a mint flavored dry mini portion snus, put snus onto the radar screens of both American tobacco users and Swedish snus manufacturers. It was not the first time Reynolds had marketed American-style SNUS and even for a brief trial period in 2006, Swedish-made Camel SNUS.
Camel Frost was the breakout SNUS product which captured public attention and forever changed snus flavoring on both sides of the Atlantic.
I've been asked why I'm so obsessed with Captain Yankee; this is the third article I've written about it and the official release date isn't until next week.
In large part, my fascination has to do with the strong American-style branding designed for the Norwegian market and the somewhat unimaginable flavor profile.
When we published the second article; Captain Yankee Xtra Strong Americana Portion Snus: the new Nick and Johnny snus for Norway, the only flavor description we could squeeze out of Swedish Match was "a new extreme snus inspired by American flavors with a distinct taste of cherry, wintergreen and cinnamon."
June was a very special week for me, I managed to tick off an entry on my bucket list, I saw Megadeth live in an intimate setting and not at a festival or arena, I was so close to Dave Mustaine his sweat landed on me!
I have seen Megadeth live plenty of times, but it has always been at a festival or on an arena tour That connection that you feel with a live band when it is up close and personal is somewhat lost. Not so at the Manchester Academy on 5th June 2013, Megadeth tore the place up!
If you're an American snus user, don't look for Captain Yankee X-Strong Americana Snus by Nick and Johnny in the local tobacco or convenience store...unless you are visiting Norway. While Captain Yankee will be available world-wide (where legal) through internet snus stores like the incompareable SnusCentral.com Snus Shop, its primary market is Norway.
Captain Yankee Americana is as American a name for a snus as you could design without beating someone over the head with a bald eagle. It comes in a cool but decidedly American themed can.
The flavor profile couldn't be more American; Swedish Match describes it as a new extreme snus inspired by American flavors with a distinct taste of cherry, wintergreen and cinnamon. If this snus were any more American, you would have to salute the can before opening it!
After all this sinks in, you may be asking yourself why was Captain Yankee X-Strong Americana snus designed for.... Norway? Why didn't Swedish Match slap the General brand name on it and offer Captain Yankee over the counter in the USA?
