All over the nudie website they have snuff marks on the jeans, is this stuff really popular in Sweden or something?

At least here in America (or at least California) its really looked down upon, seen as worse then smoking and kind of insanitary because of having to spit out the juices. I pretty much agree with this idea, it just looks nasty then me. Just wondering why its so popular, is it tradition or kind of the "it" thing that Swedish kids are doing at the moment?

if you use the portion snus you do not spit. it's great actually if you must use. i just recently stopped (which was a bit hard because i'd always snus when i'd be out drinking). and some of them have a nice flavour to them as well.

it's really popular in Sweden, however snus is nowhere as harsh/disgusting as North American snuff. It's been a big part of Swedish culture for a while now I was told (I get it brought back for me by a friend of mine who has family in Sweden, I've been hooked for a while now)

i know what you mean by hooked, and i stopped and just feel a lot better now.

also you can order some from northerner.com it's really cheap too like 3$ a tin.

How much did that end up costing you with shipping?
I've been jonesing for some Gotland!

On a side note, have any of you fellow North Ameriacans ever tried Skoal Bandits? I suppose it's the closest thing we have to portion snus.

Snus is like powdered tobacco right?! That's what i know it as. Its alright i suppose if you wanna pretend you're taking cocaine! Just end up with brown snot, which is utterly gross!! It drips out on your pillow!

the snuff that most of us have been talking about isn't the type that you snort. portion snus and the like is placed in the upper (or lower) lip, and kept there for a period of time. A lot of people who use loose snus or snuff spit, which can be pretty gross, but portion snuff users don't tend to have to spit so much.

I am also a snus user as well.

To be honest with you, I love it. The only thing i hate is taxes and duties (stupid Canada :x )

do you ever use skoal or copenhagen snuff? I buy skoal bandits once and a while, kind of like portion snus.

The american stuff is fermented, and is way worse health wise.

I use it from time to time and I hate it compared to snus.

just looked on wikipedia - apparently you put it inbetween your lip and top gum - dunno which dickhead told me to snort it - that might be why i thougt it was gross!

You do snort "snuff". that is true. But snus is to be put in the upper lip.

i must've had snuff then - either way, it was alright apart from the brown snot.

i was drunk so i didnt really think about what might happen when i next blew my nose - it was mint flavoured so it was kinda like breathing in after a strong mint. i wouldnt reccommend it, but i wouldn't warn people of it (apart from the obvious tobacco health warnings (that i ignore))

Ordering from Northerner was really fair priced actually, I ordered 4 tins and it was about $16 shipped.

i haven't tried the bandits. i've heard that camel has a "snus" on the market, i'm guessing its prolly very low quality compared to the swedish snus.

just discovered Copengahen pouches,
not too bad, considering they are readily available here in BC, and they average less toxins than any other moist snuff you can buy here in North America.

Snus is very big here in Norway also. Alot of guys use it, some girls too, but thats seen as totally gross, Agree?
I use some snus now, because i am now quitting smoking. And it helps. Better than nicotine gum or thoose other things u can use

probably not the best thing to take on as a means of quitting smoking...
it's just as addictive, not AS bad as smoking, but still not good for you.

That said, they have released Skoal citrus in Canada,I think I've found my new love (considering I can't get swedish snus readily here in BC)
