Nick & Johnny have upped their snus game.

Written by

Nick & Johnny Small Batch Licorice Slim White portion snus is a fantastic new addition to the line. It's so good in fact, I am considering forgiving them for discontinuing Nick & Johnny Black...

Greetings Snus Lovers!

It's great to finally be back at the Snustopian Embassy here in the SnusCentral bunker. Although it took some time and a bit of bribery before Moe remembered where he'd put the keys, I'm really looking forward to reviewing all the new Swedish snus brands that have been released during my hiatus.

The first set of snus brands we'll be taking a look at arrived at the embassy by carrier UNZ meaning that when Moe finally gave me the keys, he handed me a box with a message scribbled on it saying "First". When I opened the mystery box, a snus brand I've never seen before greeted me, or so I thought. That snus brand is General G.3 Extra Strong Slim White portion snus. So, let's dive right into the review and you'll see what I mean by "or so I thought"...

UPDATE 8 Dec 14:  Swedish Match announced today that Göteborgs Rapé Hjortron White Portion Snus will be returning and Back to Stay in January, 2015!

Check the Goteborgs Rapé Product Page at the Snus Shop for GR' Hjortron between Week 2 and Week 4, 2015 to purchase.

Yes, I said Göteborgs Rapé, I will wait while you get over the giggles about doing bad things to a poor defenseless goat which are illegal in most states . All better now? Good.

[EDITOR’s NOTE: the Rapé in Goteborgs Rapé is pronounced “ra-PAY”….a variation of the French word râpé, meaning shredded. Leave it to the stupid French to make shredding tobacco sound so wrong. I’ve also heard it pronounced “RA-pee”. I use the latter since I hate everything tainted by France. Now back to Mick!]

As you all know, at least those of you that have read my ramblings before, I am a fan of many of Swedish Match snus. I have visited their factories, broke bread with them, count some of their current and former employees as friends (at least by the Facebook definition of friend).

General Variation Snus: Great Snus Expectations

When I first heard about General Variation last fall, I got excited. Schoolgirl new crush excited. Finally two new Swedish Match offerings that didn’t involve fruity overly done flavors or mint. Bring ‘em on.

General Variation Smoky Oak and Rustic Blend snusAfter what seemed an inordinately long wait I got a few cans of each in January.   After using both in my usual testing ordeal I figured now was a good time to share my thoughts. I also have procrastinated for a while knowing that Swedish Match might not like what I have to say.

Finally, my Snus Review of Captain Yankee Xtra Strong Americana Snus

Captain Yankee; the extra strong Americana snus by Nick and Johnny, fights for the snus oppressed in Norway!I've been asked why I'm so obsessed with Captain Yankee; this is the third article I've written about it and the official release date isn't until next week.

In large part, my fascination has to do with the strong American-style branding designed for the Norwegian market and the somewhat unimaginable flavor profile.

When we published the second article; Captain Yankee Xtra Strong Americana Portion Snus: the new Nick and Johnny snus for Norway, the only flavor description we could squeeze out of Swedish Match was "a new extreme snus inspired by American flavors with a distinct taste of cherry, wintergreen and cinnamon."

Olde-Ving-99-and-coffee-cup_graphicI love Odens Snus. Unfortunately GN Tobacco's other snus attempts have left me at best ambivalent, at worst, disgusted.

I was very hesitant to try Olde Ving. Part of this was because of the name. GNT used to call this snus brand Olde Viking; that is until the company which actually owned the Olde Viking brand name cried foul.

In a way, the brand name change was a good thing. Olde Viking was a particularly bad snus best known for its hockey puck sized cans.

I think they could have put a little more thought into the re-branding.... Olde Ving? Who or what is Ving?

For some odd reason I can't assimilate"Ving". My brain changes the letters and I find it vaguely dirty and possibly completely off putting. I really sort of, kinda wanted to try it, but was to scared to actually spend money buying some.

What Would Yoda Snus?

Written by

For those of you who don't know me that well, I am a big Star Wars fanatic.( I really like Star Trek also, but don't hold that against me.)

During the Big 2013 Snus Summit I had the pleasure of trying what I believe would be Yoda's snus. He is little, strong and green. Even his light saber is green. I doubt he is much of a health nut, living for many years on a swamp planet, eating whatever the swamp coughed up.

Keep Calm and Don't Blink.  You can snus if you've got any passed the EU bastards.Hello, right, now the pleasantries are over. I want to introduce myself. I’m Adam, 33 and from the UK, and I’m a snuser, a British one none the less. Now I know we may be about as hard to find as Lucky Strike snus in the US but we do exist.
