Reporting from a pub somewhere in Sweden, Snus Legend Moe Unz writes about the arrival of the new XRANGE General Salmiak Slim Portion Snus and XRANGE Grov Slim Portion Snus.
Here the story of XRANGE snus and the first 2016 additions to the brand; XRANGE General Salmiak Slim Portion Snus and XRANGE Grov Slim Portion Snus.
He also answers important questions such as what is the flavor difference between licorice and salmiak and can he drink Peter Hagberg from Swedish Match under the table...we all know the answer to the second question.

UPDATED: Swedish snus manufacturers and Swedish Match in particular have a problem: unauthorized information on future product releases leaking all over social media and other sources prior to the official release.....
New Thunder Snus products are coming and we have word on which of the five 2015 Limited Edition snuses survived the cut.
Our SnusCIA agent in Denmark sat in on a recent marketing meeting at V2 Tobacco in Silkeborg, Denmark. No one from V2 knew our agent was sitting in; the meeting was held in Marc Vogel's cathedral-sized office. She just sat in the back and no one noticed her although V2 Uber Director Patrick Vogel kept looking in her direction for some reason.
It was a little hard to hear sitting that far in the back, but she was able to glean the following information....
This year there have been a rash of WikiLeaks-style unofficial snus product information leaks. Some have appeared on Instagram but some are from inside sources. Swedish Match has suffered the worst and is yet to plug the internal leaker.
The upcoming launch of GR' Original Portion Snus, The LAB 22 and LAB 24 slim portion snuses with Zylitol, and Nick & Johnny Green Ice Slim portion are old news now although not yet on the market......
This morning Swedish Match made official this month's latest new snus rumor: Nick & Johnny Small Batch Snus. The first of the Small Batch series, Nick & Johnny Small Batch Licorice Slim White Portion Snus, is being released today...
[UPDATED 30 March 2015]
Swedish Match has lifted the information embargo on XRANGE Snus so we're finally able to publish the uncensored version of the original article without getting our legs broken (hopefully).
Here it is with a new name: Swedish Match XRANGE Snuses Released and Why?
[Edited 03:00 27 Feb 2015]
The article originally featured here has been removed at the very strong request of Swedish Match as the information it contained was not intended for public release until a date closer to the Week 16 projected launch of the XRANGE Brand.
Below is the XRANGE information authorized by Swedish Match from a press release they issued yesterday. This will have to suffice until we approach Week 16. I need a drink...
Mid-April will see the launch of a brand new snus series – XRANGE.
The products in this series have a long lasting taste experience and are less prone to drip, compared to other large pouches from Swedish Match.The new range – XRANGE – from Swedish Match consists of five pouch products that all have the familiar taste experience from the Swedish Match collection of snus products.
At the same time four products will be discontinued from today's the snus collection: Catch Pure Mint Medium Slim, General Tailored White, Göteborgs Rapé Slim White Large and General Long Original.
When the Unz Family Snus Dynasty launched the new and improved SnusCentral.com Snus Shop website a few months ago, they made the questionable choice of giving Moe Unz his own blog.
Swedish snus legend Moe Unz penned this piece for his blog, Moe Unz: The Blog! He did so prior to New Years Eve since he knew he would be stinking drunk by the time this article published.
You can read Moe's peek into Swedish snus 2015 and other 2015 snus news. It is suprisingly coherent, at least for him.....

During their daily operations briefing, the SnusCIA Confirmed a new brand of American snus is being test-marketed. No other information is being released at this time. An article by Larry Waters will be appearing soon with all the details.
The SnusCIA has been unable to locate the rumored two new "mystery flavors" of Camel SNUS. An RJR Sales Rep, when questioned about the two new Camel SNUS offerings, stated that we must be thinking of the Camel Snus "they" had released in Europe. Our source for this information considered telling the RJR Rep that JTI owned the brand rights to Camel outside the US and RJR had/could not use the Camel Brand name in Europe. In the end, he decided it would just confuse the poor fellow and ended the conversation.
The US Camel SNUS website makes no mention of any other SNUS flavors except Frosted and Mellow. That makes two too many flavors of Camel SNUS than necessary but at least the product line has not grown to four. At least, not yet. The Doomsday Clock was recently moved back one minute to reflect the current lack of new Camel SNUS products.

December 17, 2009.........Confirmed......Top Secret........Preliminary Announcement
The SnusCIA Copenhagen Office has obtained one can each of two brand new Thunder Extra Stark Portion snuses from a V2 Tobacco insider with a gambling problem. These products are post-Thunder Berry. The cans arrived at the SnusCENTRAL Bunker this morning. Both the cans and the snus were carefully hand-crafted and reported to have been produced in very limited quantities......call it Thunder's version of Swedish Match's Kardus. This is the first V2 snus under any brand with strong historical ties to early snus history.
Confidential sources who are cousins of friends who know people at V2 Tobacco have confirmed the upcoming release of Offroad Limited Edition Snus. Those of you who have been wondering whatever happened with all the new flavors V2 presented at focus panels and blind tests in the past will now have your answer.
