Welcome to the Home of the SnusCENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY.
The mission of the SnusCIA is to provide Larry Waters with inside information on anything concerning Snus. Larry only publishes confirmed information in his riveting articles and expose's.
The SnusCIA often encounters tantalizing information which can not be collaborated or verified by other sources. This is raw intelligence.
Some turn out to be absolutely true. Some are basically true with some inaccurate details, and some are out-right rumors, gossip, and conversations overheard in the Men's Room. Take all of these Intelligence Briefings with a grain of salt. Until proven otherwise, they are not considered complete or even factual.
The SnusCENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY is providing these Classified Briefings for the enjoyment of SnusCENTRAL.org Members and Guests.
V2 Tobacco has two new versions of Thunder Extra Strong Snus already in the pipeline for 2011. The first is Thunder Coola Extra Stark Portion Snus. Fans of Coca Cola are in for a treat with this snus. Thunder Coola is the personal dream of Uber-Director Patrick Vogel. Patrick loves Cola and since he and his brother own V2 Tobacco, any dream of the Vogels is a reality for V2 Tobacco.....or in the case of certain past Offroad Snus products, a bad dream............
Earlier today, we reported that the 3 ml IceTool loose snus portioning tool had been discontinued by the manufacturer. Stainless steel IceTools are now only available in 5 ml and the recently introduced 4 ml versions. At the SnusCentral Snus Store, this caused some unnecessary confusion. The SnusCIA has traced back the communications failure to (no surprise here) none other than Moe Unz; Manager of SnusCentral.com.
* UPDATE: 3:28 AM Stockholm Time: The President of Icetools has released the following statement: "Folks, we haven't discontinued 3 ml stainless steel Icetool and never will. It was the first we ever designed and people still likes it a lot. 3 ml ss Icetools were out of stock for awhile, but right now available as usual and there shouldn't be any Icetool chaos anywhere - and if there really is, the best way to handle it is to contact Icetool office, we'll fix it."
The SnusCIA is in an uproar over this. What does this mean? Could Moe Unz be smarter than everyone thought? Why did he set up this bizarre plot? What is he really hiding? OR could this have been a set-up by the SnusCentral Snus Store staff to make Moe look bad? Heads will roll over this, whatever the real story turns out to be.
Below is our original report. Once we know what actually happened, the new Director of the SnusCENTRAL Intelligence Agency will be making a statement. Who knew the alleged cover-up of a simple inventory error would grow into this giant SnusCENTRAL Scandal? Grandma Unz is furious. This story will continue.......
DEVELOPING: An official at Reynolds American today confirmed that the new Camel SNUS Robust and Camel SNUS Winterchill are in the national distribution pipeline. All Camel SNUS retailers should have the product if not now, then very shortly.
Detailed information on the new SNUS products has been made available to the SnusCIA by Reynolds. Once the product is in hand and taste-tested, the full story will be released by Larry Waters of SnusCENTRAL.org. Hopefully his taste buds will still be intact at that time.

Swedish Match AB, the worlds largest manufacturer of high quality Swedish Snus, has sent a sign of solidarity and support to Swedish snus users in both the EU and the USA. In a bold move showing true Viking spirit, a new limited edition version of Göteborgs Rape' in camauflage was created to commemorate the globe-spanning, extremist war against the least harmful and best tasting source of nicotine on the planet: Swedish Snus.
The official reason for the Battle Snus was made public today: "Exclusive Göteborgs Rapé camouflage can in limited edition.........In connection with the Swedish Armed Forces final military exercise “Joint Challenge” in May 2010 Göteborgs Rapé was sold in a unique camouflage design. This limited edition, totaling 3500 cans, was developed in cooperation with Scandinavian Facility Management AB.
In reality, Joint Challenge 2010 is the code name for the war being waged against Real Swedish snus by the United States and the European Union!
Phantom Brown White Portion Snus by V2 tobacco has been discontinued effective immediately, according to Patrick Vogel of V2. There is some remaining stock but very little. If by chance you enjoy Phantom Brown White Portion, you are advised to purchase it quickly.
For everyone else, no great loss or surprise. V2 has delivered some outstanding snuses and continues to do so. Brown White Portion just wasn't one of them....by far.

Under a semi-cloud of secrecy, four new Swedish / Scandinavian Snus Products are will be available soon; hopefully pre-PACT so that Americans have a chance to try them. The offerings are from V2 Tobacco, Gotlandssnus, GN Tobacco, and Swedish Match.
Highly classified information rumored to be possessed by Interpol suggest that the recent volcanic eruptions in Iceland were not an accident. Instead, it was a carefully planned operation by the Anti-Swedish Snus Nazi's to disrupt shipments of live-saving Swedish Snus to former smokers and smokers in the United States and around the world!
Just minutes ago, the Voice of Russia reported the following: Half of all transatlantic flights have been cancelled due to Iceland’s volcano eruption, says Eurocontrol, - the European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation, in an official statement. 6,000 flights have been cancelled across Europe. Almost the whole of the North Sea water area is covered in drifting ash from the Icelandic volcano with an unpronounceable name of Eyjafjallajoekull. The last time the volcano erupted was back in 1821.
From Sweden, Norway to the UK are reporting extensive flight delays because of the huge clouds of ash being shot into the atmosphere by Eyjafjallajoekull. SnusCIA officials received an emergency message from Moe UNZ, beleaguered Manager of SnusCentral.com in Sweden. His urgent text message drove the seriousness of situation home; It could be delays for customers when flights are cancelled. This apply both the post and UPS.
Moments later, SnusCIA Signal Intelligence intercepted tweet from Stockholm: New information! All SAS flights will be cancelled until at least midnight April 17 (00.00) 2010.
As a reminder, the first meeting of the Tobacco Product Scientific Advisory Committee is scheduled for March 30-31, 2010 at the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) Conference Center.

During their daily operations briefing, the SnusCIA Confirmed a new brand of American snus is being test-marketed. No other information is being released at this time. An article by Larry Waters will be appearing soon with all the details.
The SnusCIA has been unable to locate the rumored two new "mystery flavors" of Camel SNUS. An RJR Sales Rep, when questioned about the two new Camel SNUS offerings, stated that we must be thinking of the Camel Snus "they" had released in Europe. Our source for this information considered telling the RJR Rep that JTI owned the brand rights to Camel outside the US and RJR had/could not use the Camel Brand name in Europe. In the end, he decided it would just confuse the poor fellow and ended the conversation.
The US Camel SNUS website makes no mention of any other SNUS flavors except Frosted and Mellow. That makes two too many flavors of Camel SNUS than necessary but at least the product line has not grown to four. At least, not yet. The Doomsday Clock was recently moved back one minute to reflect the current lack of new Camel SNUS products.

December 17, 2009.........Confirmed......Top Secret........Preliminary Announcement
The SnusCIA Copenhagen Office has obtained one can each of two brand new Thunder Extra Stark Portion snuses from a V2 Tobacco insider with a gambling problem. These products are post-Thunder Berry. The cans arrived at the SnusCENTRAL Bunker this morning. Both the cans and the snus were carefully hand-crafted and reported to have been produced in very limited quantities......call it Thunder's version of Swedish Match's Kardus. This is the first V2 snus under any brand with strong historical ties to early snus history.
Last week, Swedish Snus Ambassador to the United States Larry Waters received a small package from Markus at SMAB containing a single can of General Maxi Portion Snus. The SnusCIA immediately became suspicious.
As of 01:35 (GMT-6) Swedish Match has confirmed that General Maxi Portion Snus will be discontinued in mid-February 2010. General Maxi Portion is the largest portion packed snus in the entire Swedish Match collection of Snus Brands; each holding 1.5 grams of GothiaTek Swedish Snus.
December 15th 2009....Opereration AlchoPop......URGENT.....Confirmed but Confused Data
It seems like just last week that Tobacco and CPG Insider Andrew Romeo left the United States for an indeterminate period of at least 4 months. It actually was last week, come to think of it. Romeo confirmed he would be based in St. Petersburg Russia although "Consulting" for Big Russian Drink thoughout Russia.
In a heavily censored mail intercepted by SnusCIA assets in Russia, Romeo is now said to be returning "briefly" to the United States in 3 days. The cover story revolves around a holiday factory closing. We find this rather difficult to believe. Unless Mr. Romeo is a frequent flyer mile junkie, the thought of NYC to Frankfurt to St. Petersburg to Frankfort to NYC to Frankfurt to St. Petersburg in less than one month streaches credibility.
There are simply too many unanswered questions concerning Andrew Romeo's (formerly) secret visit back to New York City to accept a simple Christmas visit at face value. Awaiting more information.......
