Recognizing the popularity of higher nicotine Swedish snus, Swedish Match will be unveiling Kaliber+ Snus next week....
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....
The release of the Göteborgs Rapé White Stark Portion Snus Limited Edition is significant in three ways. However the flavor is not one of these.
Goteborgs Rapé White Stark (Strong) portion snus is just what it is named; a higher nicotine version of the classic Goteborgs Rapé White. The taste is the same mellow tobacco flavor with notes of juniper, citrus and lavender.
It basically is a limited edition Rapé (150,000 cans)........ Read MORE...
Swedish Match believes that tobacco regulation will continuously become more global in character and steadily increase in scope...
Snus flavored with spirits is a tradition going back hundreds of years to the beginnings of snus itself. Farmers in Sweden who made the first snuses for their own use often went beyond the basic tobacco, water, and salt recipe. It comes as no surprise that wine and spirits were among the different ingredients added to home-made snus.
Mass-marketed Swedish snus flavored with alcoholic beverages have come a long way since Probe Whiskey Portion Snus was launched in 1994. While Probe has been delisted this year, 2016 will bring forth new snuses flavored with whisky, rum, and bourbon....
Oden's Extreme Double Mint is a snus which I find very interesting. When reviewing a snus, I look at five categories: Flavor, Appearance, Longevity, Value, and Overall snus worthiness.
Here's how I rated Oden's Extreme Double Mint Portion Snus...
Snus causes cancer? Here we go again. Yvette Brazier writing for anti-tobacco Medical News Today published yet another biased article with cherry-picked data, gaping information holes, and fuzzy logic attempting to show snus causes cancer.
Today, FDA issued a quite frankly poorly written press release entitled FDA issues first product marketing orders through premarket tobacco application pathway.
Since General Snus and the eight products Swedish Match sells over-the-counter (OTC) are involved, there has been understandable confusion. Up until now, the focus on US General Snus OTC products has revolved around the Modified Risk Tobacco Product Application (MRTPA) made by Swedish Match over a year ago.
In their General Snus MRTPA, Swedish Match is asking FDA to eliminate and/or change three of the four mandatory warning labels required on all cans of snus sold in the US. The most obvious are eliminating the cancer and tooth loss labels since they are so factually inaccurate.
Today's announcement concerns General Snus and the Premarket Tobacco Application (PMTA) pathway. Confused yet? I was after reading the FDA press release since they jumbled both PMTA and MRTP in a statement only a technocrat could love.
Psychology has always played a major roll in product development and marketing. Words like bigger, stronger, faster, better, and safer are only a few of hundreds of examples.
Read the active ingredients list on a bottle of Listerine. There is only one: alcohol. I get more oral health benefit from a couple of fingers of whisky and more enjoyment too.
Smokers who have switched to Swedish Snus have long been motivated by snus having the about the same risk factors as French Roast Coffee. In the 45 years since modern Swedish snus has been regulated as a food product by the Swedish National Food Agency (think FDA in US terms), there have been no documented cases of Swedish snus being directly responsible for tooth lose, gum disease, or oral cancer.
This peace of mind has made the transition from smoking to Swedish snus easier, especially for US smokers who have never used oral tobacco or who have a negative impression of smokeless tobacco through American snuff and chewing tobacco.
The mad scientists at Swedish Match took snus psychology to a new level a few months ago by introducing two snuses which potentially improve tooth and mouth health: The LaB 22 Slim White Mint Portion Snus and The LaB 24 Slim White Mint Licorice Portion Snus.....
For 2015, V2 Tobacco has released two different snus special editions: Thunder I Snow You Love Me Extra Strong portion snus and Thunder Frosted Christmas Extra Strong portion snus. I've been using both snuses today and here are my thoughts.....
