Jakobssson's Fläder Portion Snus is the reborn version of the old Gotlandssnus Fläder (nicknamed "Gotlandssnus Green") revived under the Jakobsson's snus brand by popular demand and for those who never got to try it....
Marine military exchanges within the United States are now carrying some extra firepower: Thunder Extra Strong Snus.....
Swedish Snus manufacturer Gotlandssnus AB, makers of the Jakobssons, Gotlands, and Gotlandssnus brands of snus, suffered a defeat at the hands of the US FDA, a source in Sweden reported.
Gotlandssnus has been selling the Jakobsson's brand of snus over-the-counter in a limited number of US stores for the past two years.
[Updated 3 Dec 2010] Gotlandssnus AB continues to expand it's Jakobsson's Snus line of American snus user targeted products. Jakobsson's Wintergreen Strong Portion Snus is joined this week by Jakobssons Mint Strong Portion Snus and Jakobssons Classic Strong Portion Snus. SnusCENTRAL.org was the first to reveal the coming of Jakobssons Mint and Classic Strong Portions back on August 31st 2010.
These three Jakobssons snuses share a few unique things in common. While the portions are still one gram in weight each, there are only 20 portions per can as opposed to the 24 to 26 portions per can the other Swedish Snus manufacturers market. Indeed, the non-American market designed Jakobsson's snus products; Ice Fruit and Classic, still retain 24 grams of snus per can as of today....at least according to the official Gotlandssnus graphic posted on their website as I write this. My current cans do say 20 though, and back in the day, all large portion Swedish Snuses came as 24 1 gr portions per can. A 20 gram original portion offering would have stood out and I have no memory of any special issues with Jakobsson's Ice Fruit. We may have a new snus-mystery on our hands.
Mystery aside, this makes the new Jakobsson's snuses less of a bargain compared to other Swedish snuses but still a better deal than American snus.
