Curious. Is there a spitting law in Sweeden (like Singapore)?

I understand the concept behind the top compartment but, is it really that hard to find a bin, a grassy nole, or a planter to spit the used pouch in?

In the spirit of JoeMama I am going to take a portion from each tin, plus the Camel I still have and do them all at once!

We the Brothers of Sweedish White Portion. Snus brothers untie!

LOL!

Stand by for a fun ride

What are your initial thoughts on your REAL snus now that you have it in hand? Its WAAAAAAAY different than Camel Snus isnt it?

Dont worry, this stuff will grow on you in the days to come. I had flavors last night that were 'eh... its okay' that are 'Wow, this is good stuff' today.

And yes, I have behaved myself and havent gone on snus tilt.

And BTW, why are your snus brothers tied up anyway?
And if they are tied, why would you want to untie them?

Ugh, word to the snubie - dont smell your snus! (It goes in your mouth) I know that this was a rule that I have a hard time with because brew REQUIRES a good whiff of the malty/hoppy goodness. Snus smells like satans anus (IMO) but is so yummy!

We have a store here called Wawa, which is a convenience store. The are supposedly the lowest prices on tobacco products.
The skoal mailings I have been getting advertise that they have lowered the price, which is true. 2 cans a week habit of skoal used to cost me $11.65, including tax. Now its down to $9. and change.

I got the camel snus for free today, and there is usually a coupon in field and stream and outdoor life every month.. $1.00 off

The snus was $3.65 today, and I paid 2.19 for regular gas yesterday

I had a little trouble with the spitting thing, I've been dipping and chewing since i was 15. I'm 35. I felt the urge to spit, but I'm sure that will change as I quit the skoal.

Overall, I was impressed. Flavor lasted, nicotine satisfied the tobacco urge, no spitting, flavor was different, but acceptable.
Not a bad product.

I cant emphasize enough that REAL snus is where its at! In fact, if you want I will send you the rest of my General Wintergreen if you would like. It tasted very similar to dip (IMO) and it wasnt a fav of mine.

The can has been opened (I did one snus out of it) but I would be happy to share the rest with you to give you a taste of real snus. Shoot me a PM if you are interested.

I have actually not even opened a canister yet. Only opened the box to make sure there were 8 pucks. Yep. 8. They are in the freezer now.

I opened a fresh tin of the Camel this morning and, while it is a little lacking I know not yet what is in store for me with the real stuff so, I'll finish the tin before I crack into a puck.

Well, at the rate that the Camel balls last you will be done with that tin in no time! Ive come to notice I get about an hour on average with the pucksnus. I have an Ice Fruit in right now thats still going strong!
