Another fresh snus news for the day – V2 Tobacco has introduced another new white snus under the Thunder brand – the Frosted RAW. This one has a stronger kick, with a 21 milligrams per gram of nicotine. The Frosted RAW portions are much similar to the Cool Mint portions, with enough tobacco on the pockets, but with a bit of moisture.
Like most Thunder snus, this new white snus is also very comfortable in the lip. However, the aroma is much more subtle and milder, not like most snus from V2 such as the Cool Mint with a present mint taste. The effect of the nicotine with this snus has quick kick, which is quite peculiar with classic snus.
This snus has a robust effect, and the flavor takes a while to fully take pleasure on. It will take about three to five minutes before you can begin to savor the refined spearmint taste, which is a signature flavor of the Thunder Frosted series.
Other Swedish snus news blog have already posted their own reviews and I can agree to the fact that this stuff can last for one to two hours without or minimal drips. The Frosted Raw OP has been tossed with chocolate flavor, which you can also experience with this white portion.
Skruf has introduced the Xtra Strong Portion. It has a more robust flavor with more nicotine compared to other products from Skruf and other brands. In order to provide more flavor for this snus, Skruf used special-grade tobaccos for richer taste and aroma. The portions are similar to other white series, wider but swollen with tobacco.
The hottest snus news this year – the health commissioner of the European Commission, John Dalli, steps down from his office after allegations of corruption involving meeting with lobbyists to lift the snus ban in EU. Dalli, a successful businessman in Malta before assuming the health post, resolved to resign after an EU probe disclosed that he was well aware of doubtful bids on new measures about snus.
The EU Anti-Fraud Office reported to the Commission after doing investigation to act on the complaint from the Swedish Match, one of the largest manufacturers of snus in the world. The complaint also claims that one influential lobbyist tried to ask financial stipends from the company in exchange of encouraging Dalli to control future snus measures.
Meanwhile, Swedish snus news about the scandal stirs different reactions. Some believe that when the government put money ahead of health, awful things could happen. The commission’s suppression on snus is referred to as unreasonable, and the snus scandal only highlights the misleading taboo. Many people hopes that the commission will resolve this issue and reconsider the lifting of the ban on snus. Almost 12 years ago, the whole commission stepped down after the probe on the alleged insolence and financial doubts in the office.
The high demand of snus in Sweden, and just recently in Norway must be a message to the Commission to reconsider its ban on snus. Even netizens believe that understanding the info, yet retaining the dedication to a dogmatic assumption driven to oppose the choices they don’t like can be considered unsuited to the Commission’s congressional perspective.
Here’s the latest for our snus news – two new varieties have been introduced in the market. Let’s describe them.
First, the Lab Series released the 07, which is the fifth placement actually. This new snus has a robust white part, yin-yang proportion. And snussers are waiting for the next series, probably the white classic strength portion. Some says this will be 08, but experts think it will be 00. Cool.
Nevertheless, Lab Series 07 has 16.3 milligrams per portion that will certainly blow your mind away. If that type of push excites you, then try one today.
Second, the Nick & Johnny introduced last week the Black Tarmac. Although for me it seems a ghetto name for heroin, the manufacturer guaranteed that there are no opium in this snus. Added with a hint of licorice, this snus product is expected to pull a large market not only in Sweden but also in Norway. This is just one among several snus brands that maintains the 1 gram/portion mass, and monstered at 15.4 milligram per portion.
Aside from the Lab Series 07 and the Black Tarmac, the Catch Lafayette is still on the market. And for parting tidbits of Swedish snus news, some General brands will be available in re-designed tins.
If you love to use organic Swedish snus, you will be saddened by this latest Swedish snus news. Although the first week of October offers some good news like the latest release of the new Nick & Johnny Black Tarmac, the first week of October also marks the end of the General Green Harvest, which is a tobacco product that is grown organically. This product is manufactured by the popular brand Swedish Match and it will be discontinued on the 1st of October 2012.
Many Swedish snus users are saddened by this snus news because they enjoyed the unique flavor that only an organically grown tobacco product can offer. Here are some of the things that you will surely miss if you have tried General Green Harvest.
- When you open a pack of General Green Harvest, you will be reminded of those warm sunny days that you spent on a large open field filled with fresh grasses and colorful wild flowers. The smell is fresh and grassy, like when you are drinking a cup of green tea.
- You will also miss the fresh taste and distinct tobacco flavor of this organic Swedish snus. It is best to stock up on several packs of General Green Harvest before shops stop selling them for good.
Last August, one of the most talked about Swedish snus news in the snus community was the release of two new products—the Lab Series 07 and the Catch Collection Lafayette Street. If you missed this news, you should catch up now by reading some more facts and information about these two new products that you can find in this article.
The Lab Series 07 is a kind of white Swedish snus. If you have been using snus for quite some time now, you are already familiar with the white and black categories. The color represents the nicotine content of the product. Compared to other white snus, the 07 brand is stronger and more powerful. You will experience a strong taste of tobacco combined with hints of herbs, wild flowers, walnut, leather, and cedar flavors. Just the combination of flavors will make you want to try a Lab Series 07. It contains 16mg of nicotine per one slim portion of this tobacco.
Another new brand that found itself on the snus news last month is the Catch Collection Lafayette Street. Newbies in snus will enjoy the minty taste of this tobacco product that is a little bit sweet in the mouth.
If you love to listen to Swedish music, you have probably heard of Tim Bergling or more popularly known as AVCII. He made the Swedish snus news when he revealed in one of his interviews that he is also a snuser. AVCII is a popular DJ and remixer in Sweden.
According to the snus news, AVCII is a big fan of snus. He considers it as his favorite vice, just like other people consider drinking, gambling or cigarette smoking their favorite vices. He emphasizes the difference between chewing tobacco and using Swedish snus. According to the 22-year-old DJ, he prefers snus over chewing tobacco because he does not like to spit, especially if he is doing his job as a DJ in front of a lot of people. It does not drip and he even compares it to a nicotine patch.
The interview with the renowned DJ also reveals that his favorite flavor is called the General White, which he usually brings when he travels to different places to perform. AVCII said that he brings several packs of snus to last him during the trip and if he runs out of snus, his manager orders them for him.
