The most hillarious thing (not) is that the (predominatly US) tobacco lobbying has managed to get "snus" forbidden in most of the EMEA except for Sweden... Snus (pronounved snuuus, as in "snooze"), if you switch to it, is way less addictive and way, way, way less destructive to your body than smoking...but you'll have to accept to look like a redneck moron, upper lip stuffed with what not

Go figure, another HBT thread that covers another one of my interests

Started snusing six months ago, went through the General portion and los offerings available in the US within a few months and started ordering from Sweden. Right now, Snuscentral.com is my first choice in online snus retailers.

Just got an order in today:
1 roll of Skruf Original Portion
1 roll of Ettan Original Portion

and a few misc cans Roda Lacket, Jagerpris, Blue Ocean, and my fav looses Skruf Extra Stark and Gotesborg Prima Fint.

Had to give it up personally. The domestic products weren't cutting it for me and import just became too expensive and difficult to obtain.

I do miss it tho'.

I prefer Getsnus.com since they have a US warehouse. Although I think Norhtern has pretty much bought out most of the popular websites that ship to the US now.

Agreed that what is available at the local tobacco doesn't cut it since they only offer General in 8mg. Still way better than the domestic stuff, although I do buy a Marlboro puck in a pinch. However, I was looking at ordering last night and did notice that shipping has been cut in about half of what it use to be. It was upwards of 28 bucks or so just for shipping and is now down to 13 and some change. Much more managable.

Ever seen any of the Skoal brand Snus locally?

Supposed to be of a more satisfying strength since it's not manufactured by a cigarette company ( that prefers you supplement rather than switch ). Released this year.
