If you purchase snus on a regular basis, this rewards system can really multiply the savings! Here’s how it works: While logged in to our online store, you earn points for every product that you purchase (each product has a list of how many points its worth on the site). Based on the number of points you have, you will be placed in a rewards category comprised of the following three levels:
- Bronze Membership
- Bronze memberships are given to everyone who signs up in our webstore. Prices are slightly cheaper than normal while you are logged in (logging out will display the normal prices).
- Silver Membership
- You automatically become a silver member when you earn 50 points. Silver members enjoy an even greater discount over bronze and non members.
- Gold Membership
- Members who earn 100 points are promoted to a gold membership. Gold members receive an even greater discount on purchases than both bronze and silver categories.
- Diamond Membership
- Customers who earn 250 points are placed in the Diamond group. This group receives the largest discounts of any membership.
Besides using your points to earn membership levels, you can also use them towards applying a bulk discount to an order. The only thing you need to do is to apply one of the following coupon codes at the checkout to exchange some of your points for an immediate discount (points will automatically be deducted from your account):

I recently came across this super cool video of a group of Swedish friends (and possibly roomates) performing a wide variety of really neat trick shots with snus. A few of the tricks (such as the throw-kick-catch) are quite impressive!
I’d also like to take a moment to apologize for the blog downtime over the weekend as we were experiencing some issues on the blog server. Our main site and webstore were not affected, so if you’ve recently placed orders for snus (or dipping tobacco), have no worries!

Produced by V2 Tobacco of Silkeborg, Denmark, Thunder Cool Mint is an extra strong snus with a refreshing minty taste. Although I’m not a big fan of mint flavored snuses, I do enjoy the Thunder lineup and was curious to see how it would taste. Every can of Thunder Cool Mint comes with 19.8 grams of extra strength snus.
Once I got my can of Cool Mint open, I soon noticed a strong aroma of fresh mint. The mint also smelled a tad herbal, and I couldn’t detect any tobacco odors. As soon as I popped in a portion, I soon began to taste a strong mint flavor which also had a bit of a menthol cooling effect. This cool minty taste lasted for about twenty five minutes before slowly getting weaker, but I was still able to detect a hint of mint even at the forty minute mark. I removed my portions after about an hour, and by then the flavor had become increasingly bitter. There’s no real tobacco flavor to speak of, but the herbal mint was very natural as well as strong tasting (unlike G20 Mint), instead it was more in line with Nick & Johnny Crushed Ice.
The portions were made of regular material, and nothing about them really stood out. However, they did fit comfortably in my mouth and had a good moisture level which ensured that the nicotine would get rapidly released. The nicotine kick came on very strong and fast, and I experienced a good head rush almost immediately after putting in a portion. I was able to keep portions in for around forty minutes before they began to drip and taste bitter.
Overall, Thunder Cool Mint is a solid tasting mint snus that packs a punch. The minty flavor tasted quite natural and not artificial which I liked, and it lasted for a fairly long time before starting to subside. I recommend Thunder Cool Mint to fans of mint flavored snuses, as well as those who like a strong nicotine rush. If you’re a smoker looking to make the switch to snus, I highly recommend giving Cool Mint a go!

Oden’s Extreme Cold Portion
Manufactured by Oden’s GN Tobacco, Oden’s Extreme Cold Portion is a tobacco dominant snus with a bit of menthol and powerful nicotine kick. Each can of Oden’s Extreme Cold comes with 18 grams of extra strength snus (22mg of nicotine per portion!) in every can. As a fan of stronger snuses with tobacco dominant flavors, I was excited to see how Oden’s Extreme would stack up to other strong brands such as Thunder Ultra. The Oden’s line also uses a process of fire curing (rather than pasteurizing their snus like other brands) in order to create a unique taste.
Upon opening my can of Oden’s Extreme Cold, I immediately noticed a strong aroma of smokey tobacco as well as a distinct smell of menthol. After I placed a portion in my mouth, I began to taste a cooling sensation of menthol which was complimented by a smokey tobacco flavor which was rounded out by a hint of spice. The cooling effect of the menthol lasted for about ten minutes, and after the tobacco flavor came out and was very strong, with a smokey taste lasting for around thirty minutes before becoming increasingly bitter and salty, forcing me to remove it at the forty five minute mark.
The portions were of average quality, and they were fairly comfortably in my lip. I was able to leave portions in for about forty minutes before I began to experience a bitter drip. The nicotine rush came on within two minutes, and it produced a strong headrush which rivals that of Thunder Raw Ultra Strong. Because of the strong and fast headrush it produces resembles the rush of a cigarette, I suggest that smokers looking to switch to snus give Oden’s Extreme a try.
Overall, I enjoyed Oden’s Extreme Cold quite a lot as a tobacco flavored snus. Oden’s unique tobacco flavor, paired with its high nicotine content make it a solid choice for those who want a tobacco flavored snus with a kick. The menthol also provides a cooling sensation which makes the flavor even more interesting. Oden’s Extreme Cold Portion goes well with minty drinks such as creme de menthe, as well a refreshing treat after having a strong coffee.

Yet another offering in V2 Tobacco’s popular Thunder line of Snus, Thunder Wintergreen White is an extra strong snus with a wintergreen twist. Each can of Thunder Wintergreen comes with 17.6 grams of extra strength snus containing 16mg of nicotine per portion.
Once I got my can of Thunder Wintergreen White open, I noticed a strong wintergreen aroma which reminded me a lot of pink wintergreen lozenges (which I happen to love!). After I put in a portion, I soon began to taste a strong and refreshing wintergreen flavor which I prefer over regular mint. I was unable to detect any hints of a tobacco taste, or anything else for that matter. The wintergreen flavor lasted for around thirty minutes before it began to subside, and after forty minutes the taste was replaced by just a hint of tobacco. I generally started to experience drip around the fifty minute mark, which is when I usually took the portions out.
The taste reminded me a lot of wintergreen lozenges
The portions use the same material as the rest of the Thunder lineup (with the exception of Thunder Frosted Longer+), and they were fairly comfortable. Since it is a fairly dry white portion snus, the nicotine kick of Wintergreen White is a little slower to come on than other Thunder varieties, taking about 5 minutes before you experience the full buzz (compared to almost instantly with a original portion Thunder). Personally, I enjoy the slower onset because I feel like the buzz is not as intense as original portions, yet its peak strength is about the same. I was able to leave portions in for about fifty minutes before I began to experience drip.
Overall, I found myself enjoying the taste of Thunder Wintergreen White a lot. Its flavor is great (not overly sweet) and has a very natural taste. I’m really hoping that V2 decides to offer Wintergreen in the same slim portion format that they do with Thunder Frosted Long+. If they do, Wintergreen White will definitely be added to my daily rotation to mix things up every now and then! Thunder Wintergreen makes for a great (and zero calorie!) post-meal treat!

Although its been quite some time since I last posted a snus picture of the week. Late last month I found a beautiful looking autumn leaf and found the need to pair it with a similarly colored snus can. As the weather grows colder and winter nearer, I’m glad that snus is smokefree because it means that I can use it indoors discreetly without bothering anyone.
The snus I chose to photograph is Supportersnus Lumberjack. For those of you unfamiliar with the many variants of Supportersnus, it is a brand of snus designed to represent a range of Swedish sports teams. All Supportersnuses have the same great tobacco taste, only the can artwork changes between brands.
Produced by Danish tobacco manufacturer V2 Tobacco, Thunder Frosted Longer+ Portion takes the mint flavor of original Thunder Frosted snus and combines it with a slim portion format. Each can of Thunder Longer+ comes with 16.5 grams of strong snus containing about 16mg of nicotine per portion.
After I got my can open, I noticed a strong minty aroma reminiscent of Thunder Raw Ultra Strong, but with more than one mint scent. Once I popped a portion in, I soon noticed a cool mint taste which tasted like a mix of spearmint and peppermint which was surprisingly tasty even for someone who isn’t a big mint fan! The mint flavor lasted around twenty-five minutes and then began to transition to a mildly salty tobacco taste. The taste of the tobacco was quite pleasant, but became increasingly mild after the forty minute mark. I ended up removing my portions after about an hour, at which point I could hardly taste any flavors beyond a hint of tobacco.
I have to say, my favorite thing about Thunder Frosted Longer+ is the slim portion format. Long and thin, the portions fit comfortably in my mouth for long periods of time while at the same time managing to produce an impressively strong nicotine kick for its size. I also noticed very little drip with the long format portions, and as a result I was able to leave portions in for a little over an hour without experiencing any drip. The portions are also fairly moist, which ensures that you feel a strong nicotine buzz set in within a few minutes. Drinking liquids is also a breeze, and I was able to drink various things without getting the portions wet.
Overall, Thunder Longer+ is a great tasting tobacco snus which manages to take the delicious taste of Thunder Frosted and repackages it in a comfortable and long lasting slim portion format. The With its high nicotine content and (surprisingly enjoyable) minty taste, I can definitely see myself adding Thunder Longer+ to my daily rotation!

Produced by SP Tobacco, Wow! is a relatively new snus brand which offers a range of flavors (such as wintermint). Wow Salty Stuff is described as having a salty licorice taste. Every can of Salty Stuff comes with 15 grams of moderate strength snus in a “unisex” portion format. Licorice is one of my favorite snus flavors, so after I received my can I was excited to pop a portion in and see how it tastes.
After opening my can of Salty Stuff, I noticed a mild aroma of licorice as well as hints of mild tobacco. After I placed a portion in my mouth, I soon noticed a slight taste of licorice (it wasn’t very strong compared to other licorice brands such as LD Salmiak), as well as some salt. The mild licorice flavor was complimented by an herbal tobacco taste, which became increasingly stronger after about ten minutes. The licorice flavor subsided at the thirty minute mark, and for the next twenty minutes I noticed a taste of mild tobacco and salt. I generally removed my portions around the one hour mark when they ran out of flavor.
Front is the Salty Stuff portion, behind is a regular sized portion for comparison
Salty Stuff portions come in a format known as Unisex 18/30, a size which fits in between mini and regular portions, creating a nice balance between discreetness and strength. I did notice a slight nicotine buzz from Salty Stuff, but it is fairly mild in comparison to full size brands. The portions created very little drip which was nice, and it was easy to leave them in for long periods of time comfortable.
Overall, Wow Salty Stuff! is a solid snus, but it doesn’t really stand out from the other licorice offerings already on the market. I’m not a huge fan of the smaller portion sizes, and the licorice flavor was a little weak for my tastes. However, if you’re looking for a milder tasting snus with less of a nicotine buzz, then I suggest giving Salty Stuff a try. Salty Stuff pairs nicely with herbal teas, as well as licorice flavored liqueurs such as Ouzo and Sambuca.

Produced by Skruf Snus AB, Knox White Stark Portion is a strong portion snus which promises to offer quality snus at an affordable price. Every can of Knox Stark has 20 grams of strong snus. As someone who enjoys tobacco flavored snuses, I was excited to give Knox stark a go!
Once I opened my can of Knox Stark, I soon noticed an aroma of tobacco and herbs, and the combination reminded me quite a bit of brands such as (the now discontinued) General Green Harvest as well as Blagul Original. Upon placing a portion in my mouth, I first noticed a smooth tobacco taste, which was soon complimented by herbal undertones. I felt that the mild tobacco taste went well with the herbal notes, and portions were not too salty and easy to leave in for a long time. The tobacco taste was quite basic and not as complex as the Skruf line of snus, so I didn’t find that it developed very much over time (which fine with me!).
The portions were essentially the same design as those used in the main Skruf brand, and they also had a low moisture content. The portions produced very little drip, and I was able to leave them in for over an hour without experiencing any drip. The nicotine strength was also quite good, and I began to experience a strong nicotine buzz after a few minutes.
Overall, I really enjoyed Knox Stark Portion, and it is probably one of my favorite brands of snus. The great taste combined with the low price makes it a very attractive brand, and I feel that Skruf did a great job this brand. I plan to add it to my daily rotation as a quality alternative to higher priced brands! Knox Stark pairs well with tea as well as IPA beers.

Released only a few months ago, Goteborg’s Rapé Slim is a new take on a popular brand of snus. Rapé Slim uses Swedish Match’s new NATUFIBE portion system (the same as General Tailored) which reduces drip and ensures a comfortable fit. According to Swedish Match, Rapé Slim is described as being ”A medium-bodied tobacco taste with distinct notes of lavender and juniper, along with hints of cedar and citrus.” Every can of Rapé Slim comes with 20 0.8 portions of average strength snus with a total of 16 grams of snus per can. Having enjoyed the original Goteborg’s Rapé quite a lot, I was excited to see how the slim variant would compare.
Upon opening my can of Goteborg’s Rapé, I soon noticed an aroma of juniper berries, citrus, and herbs, complimented by mild tobacco. The aroma was very pleasant and reminded me quite a bit of the regular Goteborg’s Rapé. After putting a portion in my mouth, I was soon greeted with a pleasant taste of juniper berries and herbs, with only a slight hint of tart oranges. Over time this taste slowly began to subside, and after twenty minutes the strong juniper taste began to take a backseat to mild tobacco and herbs. The transition was very nice and the tobacco taste continued to produce flavor until the fifty minute mark when it became increasingly subdued.
Rapé Slim portions come arranged in Swedish Match’s star formation and are pre-wedged for maximum comfort. I must say that the new NATUFIBE portions are my favorite type of portions. The material makes each portion very comfortable while at the same time producing very little drip (I was able to leave portions in for an hour without any drip). The slim portion format is also quite discreet and fits comfortably in my lip. The nicotine kick was average, and took around five minutes before fully kicking in.
Overall, I enjoyed Goteborg’s Rapé Slim quite a lot. As a fan of the traditonal taste of regular Goteborg’s Rapé, the Slim portion format reduces drip and improves comfort while at the same time staying true to Rapé’s great taste. I recommend Goteborg’s Rapé Slim for those looking for comfortable portions with the taste of regular Rapé. Rapé is also great as an after dinner treat and pairs well with certain types of tea.
