Xobeloot: Haunted by an Apparition.

...The origin of Xobeloot...

I remember it vividly...  I was about 14 years old, it was 2 AM, and I just couldn't sleep.  I walked to my 2nd-story bedroom window and quietly opened it.  Hanging out the window as far as I could, I stared out into a cold and snow covered New Jersey winter night, smoking a Camel Wide and wishing that I could sleep.  I finally flicked the cigarette butt out into the darkness and climbed back into bed.

Four Million Cans of Swedish Snus!

We Visit the Swedish Match Snus Factories in Gothenburg and Kungälv, Sweden

The Road Trip to Sweden Series: June 2009, chronicles Larry Waters' diplomatic mission to Stockholm and Gothenburg Sweden.  Swedish Match AB "suggested" we come visit them concerning the Joakim/Markus in "alleged" captivity issue and some other things.  SnusCENTRAL in Sweden:  it wasn't like the old Danish invasions of centuries past, but comes pretty close!

June 11 & 12, 2009: When you want to intimidate the people you are negotiating with, what better way than a show of force?  The old Soviet Union had their May Day parade; a seemingly endless line of tanks, troops, ballistic missiles, and the like.  China does the same thing to this day in Tienanmen Square each year.  The Nuclear Freeze proponents of the 1970's and 1980's were sure intimidated.  Ronald Reagan wasn't, but that's another story for another website.

When I arrived at Landvetter Airport,  Swedish Match plain clothed security personnel escorted us into an Swedish Match; Gothenburg, Swedenarmoured limousine for the 30 minute drive to the Swedish Match Gothenburg Snus Factory.  Before we had a chance to sit down and discuss the Joakim/Markus situation, Jens Karlsson took us on a tour of the Gothenburg Snus Factory.  Jens was the lead negotiator for Swedish Match AB.

The following day, we were back in our armoured limo and off to the new snus factory in Kungälv.  The details of both tours along with many more pictures from our secret Spy Shop pen-cameras will follow in later articles.  There is so much to tell and so many highlights that one article can't hold them least without giving you severe eyestrain.

The title of this article is Four Million Cans of Swedish Snus...Swedish Match snus to be precise.  These were the heavy tanks of Jen's Swedish Match show of force.  It was very effective.

Houston, SnusCENTRAL has landed!  We arrive in Stockholm.

June 11, 2009: It was a very foggy morning in Stockholm as our aircraft made the final approach into Arlanda Airport.  On our grainy steerage-class video monitors, we switched to the channel showing the forward-viewing camera.

I'm in Sweden...Where's my snus?!

I always track the consumer and expert reviews of all the new types of snus which hit the market both here on SnusCENTRAL, and on other snus related forums inhabited by non-Swedes.

This is the new and growing Internet-shop generation.  This generation seeks out flavors and strength, and the reviews resemble those one would see of fine wines, discussing bouquet, flavor intensity and decay, and the proper accompanying beverage. Debates rage:  "What is bergamot?"  "Why does the fig note taste like lemon?"  (One of my favorites about Taboca snus).

Tre Ankare regular and mini White portion snus! Available at the SnusCENTRAL Snus Store!Welcome back Snus Lovers!

I thought this week we would journey into "Value Priced" snus by reviewing the first low priced brand in the Swedish Match family, Tre Ankare. I know you're all saying "Snus Guy, what's up with the low priced snus reviews?" Basically, I wanted to review this lower priced snus brands for two reasons. The first one is that I want to make sure Tre Ankare, as well as other value priced snus, doesn't get the branding that value priced foods and merchandise get which is, that they are typically subpar in taste and quality.

The second reason is that Tre Ankare is a relatively unknown snus brand. I don't mean that nobody knows that Tre Ankare is a snus brand, just that it's not as popular as its well known siblings in the Swedish Match family like General and Röda Lacket! So, with that information in hand, let's begin our journey into Tre Ankare White and Mini White portion snus.



The biggest problem facing snus in general but Swedish Snus in particular is education.  For all practical purposes, the American Public is clueless on snus.  Part of that is the industry's fault.  Using the words Snuff, Snus, Smokeless Tobacco, Smokefree Tobacco, American Smokeless Tobacco interchangeably in the same paragraph confuses even myself some times.

Published in Larry Waters Reports!, the most comprehensive snus website on the planet,  revealed today that two high-ranking Swedish Match AB Officials have accepted sanctuary at the SnusCENTRAL Command Bunker which is located at an undisclosed location somewhere in the United States.  Swedish Match AB is the largest manufacturer of Swedish Snus in the world as well as being an industry leader in the manufacturing and distribution of cigars, American smokeless tobacco, pipe tobacco, and matches/lights.

While I was sitting in my cozy room here at SnusCENTRAL last week, pondering which snus I would review next, a mysterious, brown padded envelope was slipped under my door! The only markings on it were the words "To: TSG - From: UNZ. Please review!" Being the inquisitive type, I opened the envelope and a can of Oden's Kanel portion snus fell out! Larry likes to be covert! He did the same thing to me a awhile back with a can of SPAM! (That's a story for another day!)

So as not to have a repeat of "SPAMergate", today we'll be reviewing the latest leader in the Extra Strong / Ekstra Sterk / Extra Stark snus race, Oden's Kanel (Cinnamon) Extra Stark portion snus by Gajane!

Larry was not the only reason I decided on Oden's Kanel to review though. I wanted to get a review out on it while it was still new to most snus lovers! The other reason I'll divulge at the end and it will surprise you!

FDA Tobacco Regulation is Back Already

American Tobacco BanThe United States Economy is crumbling.  Unemployment is now projected to reach 8% in 2009: Translation; it will be a lot higher than 8%.  Millions of Americans are out of work, losing their medical benefits, their homes, and those still with jobs live in constant well-founded fear that their jobs will be the next ones to be eliminated.  America is not in Recession:  We are already suffering the Second Great Depression.  The stakes?  America itself and the World economy by extension.

None of that is important enough to capture the attention of myopic Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA).  In the midst of America's worst economic crisis in 90 years, Waxman is laser-focused on his own personal agenda.  He has already resurrected his 2008 attempt to   place all tobacco products under FDA Control.
