Hello ladies and gents. It’s been quite a while since I’ve done a column here at SC, but we’ve been busy as sin trying to get the new issue of the Ephemeris up and running. I’mGet the next issue of Snuff Taker's Ephemeris or you won't know stuff putting the finishing touches on it now, but I wanted to take a few minutes to comment on some of the new snus that has come out since my last column. I know that I normally don’t do reviews or anything, but I just had to get some of this off my chest.

First: the good. Jägarpris from AG Snus is the first new snus since Lucky Strike Bold to really make me excited. The portions are super comfortable, ultra-wet and have a cool pseudo-threaded design at the seam. The container is really comfortable sitting in your back pocket and the label is simple and classy.

The flavor of Jägarpris may be a touchy subject for some of you. I’m one of the three guys in the world that liked Level snus, which was sadly discontinued some time back. Level has a bad rep on most of the snus forums, but I could never understand why. It was reminiscent of General’s traditional bergamot, salt and citrus flavor, but the citrus was tweaked just a tiny bit and the salt & pepper spiciness was way more in-your-face than General. It never got bitter on me, even if I had it in for an hour. Best of all, Level was 2.49 a can when most name brand snus was 3.39 a tin. About the only thing I didn’t like about Level was that it didn’t feature a catch lid, which really didn’t matter much to me anyway.

R.R. Hubbard

R.R. Hubbard - The World According to FeckR.R. "Feck" Hubbard is no stranger to tobacco. Hailing from a long line of tobacco farmers and distributors (his Great-Great-Great Grandfather owned the first independent tobacco warehouse in North Carolina), his is a life steeped deep in southern tobacco culture, which makes his love of snus that much more appreciative. Says Feck, "I've seen the good and the bad that comes along with tobacco addiction, and snus is the absolute safest choice that the adult connoisseur can make. I urge anyone that smokes, chews, or dips to look into the facts behind snus and make an informed decision, and there's no better place to uncover the truth than right here at SnusCentral."

While living in Austin Texas, Feck was one of the first people in the country to try Camel SNUS. The experience left him with mixed feelings. "I liked not smoking, but the candy flavor and lack of nicotine in Camel SNUS kept me faithful to my smokes." Thankfully, Feck's half-Swedish cousin showed up on his doorstep one day bearing complimentary cans of General snus, and the rest is history.

"Had he never shown me what REAL snus was, I would probably still be smoking. Right now is a golden time in this country to be a snuser. There's a wealth of information on the web at this time that just simply wasn't there three or four years ago, and it's thanks to the efforts of folks like Larry Waters that new snusers have a place to turn to for guidance. The community here is top notch, like one big family. When Larry approached me to do this column, there was no way I could say no."
