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.

Limited Edition Ettan Loose Snus and Grov Loose Snus back in their classic 1967 tins

What's Old is New Again (briefly): Ettan and Grov Loose Snus Cans circa 1967

Original STA tin can lid with certificate of authenticity 1967 was a good year for nuclear weapons and Swedish snus. China exploded their first hydrogen bomb, the MIRV ballistic missile; a single missile carrying multiple nuclear warheads, was developed, and the USSR and USA proposed a nuclear nonproliferation treaty.

Dwarfing these trivial items in historic significance, the last government-owned Swedish tobacco monopoly, Svenska Tobaks AB (STA), introduced the round snus can with a metal lid.

Until then snus had been sold in plain brown cardboard packets. Svenska Tobaks AB added some color and created a different design for each type.

To put this achievement in perspective, in 1967 there was no EU, you would not be arrested for mailing snus from Sweden to any European country, and the pop group ABBA was still 5 years away from being formed! These truly were ancient times.

Welcome fellow snus lovers!

I've been pacing around my office here in Snustopia trying to figure out which snus I should review for the first post here at SnusCENTRAL. I knew this review had to be memorable and, the snus needed to be one that has very little in the way of true taste descriptions. Then it hit me! 

In the various forums I've read, V2's Phantom Classic Blue has become almost controversial amongst snus lovers. From what I've read, this snus is on the top of the list of "Love it" or "Hate it" posts. There really is no detailed, unbiased taste reviews, just biased. That's the reason for Phantom Classic Blue being the first review.

The snus world needs an unbiased review of this snus so, without further ramblings from me, I give you, V2's Phantom Classic Blue!
