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.
Swedish Match announced the long-awaited Nick and Johnny Black Portion Strong Snus will be released in November. The SnusCIA Stockholm office learned two weeks ago that for unknown reasons, Nick and Johnny Black was being held back until the 0102 Lab Series was released.
Sources at Swedish Match AB, who spoke on condition we didn't tell anyone they did, had no idea why LS-01 and LS-02 were released first.
Back on August 7th, SnusCIA released the first look and review of Nick and Johnny Black.

UPDATED !!! Sept. 11, 2009
On September 10th 2009, the SnusCENTRAL Intelligence Agency @ SnusCENTRAL.org release the below information, speculation and clandestine photographs. Today we uncovered the earth-shattering "rest of the story". Short answer: is Swedish Match releasing a new line of snus? YES! Are the below pictures the first published of the new line? NO.
First our original report; then the fascinating and shocking TRUTH!
Rumors have been circulating in the Snus Community that JTI Sweden, makers of Swedish CAMEL Original Portion Snus and CAMEL White Portion Snus were about to or had already de-listed the CAMEL White Portion. After much investigation, the SnusCIA has determined these rumors are completely false.
New Cans: Same Great Snus!
We've known this was coming but our SnusCIA Agent in Sweden was on holiday.... Here are the pictures of the new cans for Goteborgs and Roda Lacket. Note that the 's in Goteborg's has be changed to simply Goteborgs. An effort by Swedish Match to save ink and help the environment? An effort to become more search engine friendly? Or did they run out of room on the label? WHY?
As to the Roda Lacket White, what happened to the 1960's Hippy Woodstock Anniversary colors? I guess all us Baby Boomers have grown up.
Reviews of all these products can be found in the Snus Review Section of SnusCENTRAL.org.
Approximately one month ago, our SnusCIA agent in Kungälv, Sweden sent an urgent text: 'Watch the Mail!' She has not been heard from since.
A few days later, a simple padded envelope with no return address but postmarked Kungälv arrived at SnusCIA Headquarters. After x-rays, bomb-sniffing dogs, and a little impatience, the envelope was torn open. It contained a single can of snus: Nick and Johnny BLACK Portion.
Silkeborg, Denmark: UPDATE - Back in May 2009, Larry Waters reported from the Tobacco Expo Plus the bombshell news that V2 Tobacco was releasing their popular Thunder Frosted Strong Portion Snus in a Mini-Portion size.
SnusCIA Agents in Denmark have confirmed this week from inside sources at V2 Tobacco that Thunder Frosted Strong Mini Portions will be available no later than August 15, 2009. HOWEVER............
The below signals intercept shows on May 31st 2009, an Iranian entity searching for Swedish Intelligence Agencies on Google identified the SnusCENTRAL Intelligence Agency (SnusCIA) and attempted infiltration of the SnusCentral.org website. Twenty minutes later, Iranian Intelligence tried once again to penetrate the SnusCIA section of SnusCENTRAL.org.
Confirmation of Previous intelligence: Production of Philip Morris 1847 Snus to be moved: Rocker Factory to be closed down........May 28, 2009
SnusCIA has been hearing credible rumors concerning a production move of both the Philip Morris 1847 Portion and Philip Morris 1847 White Portion ever since the PMI/SMAB Joint Venture was announced.
Obtained from public sources: 29 Apr. 09
Not great news but not unexpected due to the market volatility surrounding the US tobacco tax increases. Highlights even more that mass cigarette smoker education is both the key to reduced harm snus expansion and the challenge in the United States.
