In a move which will certainly have U.S. snus users celebrating, Swedish Match has recently announced plans to expand their General Snus offerings in to new American markets. Designed for American tastes, Swedish Match plans to distribute both General Snus Nordic Mint and General Classic Blend to consumers in New York, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Phoenix, Denver, and across the state of Ohio. I’m going to try to review these brands in the coming weeks, so keep checking back to see what they taste like!
In addition, most of your favorite brands of snus are available for purchase online via Northerner. Northerner’s U.S warehouse located in Connecticut ensures that your snus will arrive quickly, and offers a wide array of Swedish snus. Northerner has also been working on making snus more available in brick and mortar stores through their website known as Snus Distribution. Thanks to these efforts, authentic Swedish snus is now available in over 600 stores nationwide, with more to follow. You can see a map of stores that currently carry Swedish Snus here on Snus Distribution.
Between this news and the recent developments regarding new snus brands to be released this year, I feel like 2012 is shaping up to be a great year for snus consumers. I hope to keep documenting new snus news and reviews during the coming months, and look forward to trying all the new brands in the near future.
