The calls for banning flavored nicotine-containing products has been primarily a long and vocal one when it comes to vapor and e-cigarettes. Poking out of the eSmoke debate is a new threat that hits my community much closer to home: a ban on flavored mint and wintergreen snus and smokeless tobacco.
San Francisco, Oakland, St. Paul, and Canton have proposed regulations to effectively slash the availability of all smokeless tobacco products and ban outright wintergreen and mint flavored dip and snus. Since US sales of these flavors make up 60% of the total US market, this will be a huge blow to national Adult Tobacco Harm Reduction (ATHR) efforts to switch current cigarette smokers to safer nicotine alternatives.
"Medically approved" products like Big Pharma's nicotine gum are of course excluded in these new regulations. New nicotine pouches and dissolvables which contain no tobacco like Swedish Match's new ZYN product have no such luck and fall under the proposed bans as well.
Based on consumer demand, Swedish Match North America (SMNA) has pulled the loose cut version of General Snus from its 20,000 US retail locations catalog. About 98% of all General Snus sold over the counter (OTC) in US convenience and tobacco stores is of the portion snus variety.
In a surprise announcement this morning, V2 Tobacco announced they had been aquired by Swedish Match AB. V2 Tobacco is a privately held smokeless tobacco company, primarily active in Europe. V2 Tobacco is headquartered in Silkeborg, Denmark.
To snus users around the world, V2 is most famous for their Thunder Snus line of high nicotine snuses.
The SnusCENTRAL.org Bunker, located at an undisclosed location in Texas, USA, receive a shipment of the new Offroad End-of-the-World Snus Survival Kits.
Hey guys sorry it’s been a while, but I have been using my daily snus driver The LaB 22 as of late. If you have not tried it yet, it is an excellent snus. As you know I am a huge mint snus fan girl. That said, I’ve been testing the waters with this new Swedish Match product called OMNI Peppermint, and I must say, it is pretty tasty!
After 2 and a half years of fumbling the Swedish Match application for Modified Risk Tobacco Product (MRTP) status on their General Snus products sold in US convenience stores, the FDA announced on Dec 14th they had taken "action".
After a careful review of the entire MRTPA process concerning General Snus and FDA's eventual ruling, a fair-minded person can only conclude that NO tobacco product will ever win MRTP status, regardless of the merits, from this FDA Center for Tobacco Products.
This begs the question, Congressional mandate notwithstanding, why does FDA perpetuate this cruel, expensive, and time consuming farce? Simply make the MRTPA process a one page form, hold the required public comment period, and then deny the application. That would save both the government and the manufacturer huge amounts of money while delivering the same outcome as the current process...minus the hypocrisy.
Recognizing the popularity of higher nicotine Swedish snus, Swedish Match will be unveiling Kaliber+ Snus next week....
When we received our Snus Day package yesterday, I eagerly opened the box in anticipation to try the Lungrens products. I saw the LG Mojito… My heart stopped! At LAST IT'S HERE!
I had high hopes for this snus. With the untimely demise of Gotebörgs Rapé White Large Lime, I was on the hunt for a lime-flavored snus to keep my taste buds at bay. Does LG Mojito disappoint?......
According to an inside source at Swedish Match speaking on condition of anonymity, Swedish Match will be discontinuing two snuses in their popular XRANGE brand: XRANGE Grov Slim Portion Snus and XRANGE Salmiac Slim Portion Snus....
If you’re looking for a snus that will replace your menthol cigarettes, then this is your new go-to snus! All I can say before jumping into the review is if you're a menthol cigarette smoker (or used to be) buy a roll of this delicious Odens White Portion Mint snus.....
The origins of what became GN Tobacco are somewhat murky. What was always clear is that the initial Oden's Snus marketing plan hinged on offering the snus with the highest nicotine levels available on the market. Everything else was secondary.
Fast-forwarding to 2016 and GNT's Q3 new product introductions, a trend had solidified into a huge change from 2009......
