General Loose (lös) Snus doesn't make the cut in US stores

Based on consumer demand, Swedish Match North America (SMNA) has pulled the loose cut version of General Snus from its 20,000 US retail locations catalog.  About 98% of all General Snus sold over the counter (OTC) in US convenience and tobacco stores is of the portion snus variety.

General Classic Loose 2017 Breaking down General Snus sales in US stores, 50% is General Large Mint snus, 20% is General White Portion snus, 13% is General Original Portion snus (my personal favorite), while the remaining 17% consists of sales of General Wintergreen White Portion and General Mini Mint Dry Portion snus. 

General Mini Mint seems to be a starter snus with customers moving up to General Large Mint when they repurchase.  About 5000 General Snus retailers stock General Mini Mint on a consistant basis.

US OTC sales of General Snus continue to grow by double digits year to year.  Only six General Snus products were grand-fathered in under the Tobacco Control Act of 2009 by FDA for OTC Sale in the US. 

The complete General Snus catalog currently has over 40 different products available via eStores.  The entire Swedish Match Snus brand catalog has over 100 offerings today.  The vast majority of these products are available to US consumers through internet Snus Shops located in Sweden like the legendary Snus Shop.

If you are a General Loose Snus fan in the US, fear not.  You can not only order General lös snus but the higher nicotine General Classic Extra Strong lös snus via the internet! 

Until next time, enjoy your REAL Swedish Snus!Official Seal of the Swedish Snus Ambassador to the United States

    complete BS that they stopped selling the loose here. I was their biggest fan!

    Nothing compares, these little t-bag thingies are depressing. Now I have to get "raped" with shipping charges and higher fees to order the loose online. I've been buying for 5+ years. I guess it's time to quit!
