A Little Piece of Heaven
Many of you know this as some type of European chewing tobacco. The proper word for this amazing ground up plant concoction is "Snus", and snus makes my world go round. The second best thing in this world to me, besides powder skiing, would have to be enjoying a nice fresh snus. So you are probably asking yourself what exactly is snus, and below I have found a almost perfect explanation to share with you all from www.thenortherner.com
First of all, we want to emphasize the spelling, it's spelled snus, not snooze, snoose, snusse, snuss or anything else for that matter. In the USA it's often refereed to as moist snuff. Many also wrongly confuse it with dip tobacco or even chewing tobacco, which are similar but not identical products.
Swedish snus is a moist to semi-moist, oral tobacco product that is used behind the upper lip. There are two formats for Swedish snus, loose and portion packed. Both formats are available in different flavor varieties. Swedish snus is made from selected tobaccos, water, salt and flavorings, following recipes dating back to the 19th century. Swedish snus is pasteurized in a proprietary heat treatment process that meets the Swedish food standards.
With Swedish snus there’s no chewing or spitting. Only pure tobacco enjoyment.
So with that said, if you are a chewer I think you owe it to yourself to try some of this goodness in your mouth. And one more thing take, the time to go on the internet and get your own, cause no one likes a moocher! :)
