It's still not confirmed if this is real or not, but it looks like Copenhagen Snus could be coming.  Or test marketing, at least.

It is confirmed that it is real.

I think this is bad news to those Americans who exclusively use Swedish snus. The major American smokeless companies (who, by the way, are owned by the major cigarette companies for the most part), are relentless in keeping real Swedish snus out of the United States. As they see it, the more American "SNUS" available, the less of a desire for the consumer to purchase the real stuff online and the less opportunity for other Swedish companies to emerge in the American market.

Is there a demand for another brand of American "SNUS"? I would say not. The U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company just wants to give consumers more American products so that they can keep Swedish Match and others out of the market. This, my friends, is why General gaining footholds into the American market is a very important thing for us.

I may be wrong, but Copenhagen Snus, just like Skoal snus before it, will simply be rebranded dip in a different pouch and can intended to misinform the health-conscious tobacco user or struggling smoker who is trying to quit his habit. We know this isn't legitimate snus.

As advocates of real Swedish snus, we cannot allow the Copenhagens, Camels, Marlboros or Skoals to take off in America. If they do, it will crush any chance of real Swedish snus succeeding in the United States.

Support the companies that have integrity. Support real Swedish snus.

All that aside, the cans do look pretty cool.

That doesn't look too bad honestly.

Looks interesting. i wonder how the natural is, and how much different the mint is to skoal mint (which is way to sweet for it's own good. i'd rather chug a bottle of corn syrup than deal with one of those again. But hopefully we'll get to see a review soon. I'm still waiting for a good american snus.  :-\  yet again... I do love me some general, so even if one did come out i don't think it could replace it, especially since i could always get some onyx. but i digress.  ;D

I spoke with USST via their consumer product information line this morning. The response I got was very vague. I asked them for details on Copenhagen Snus, which they replied, "There is no Copenhagen Snus". I pried further, saying, "Cans of Copenhagen Snus have been found at Tobacco Barn in Texas." The representative told me, "That's where we test market our products, so it may be a test market." Then I was informed that information about the product wouldn't be available until after the product is done being test marketed. The one tidbit of information I did get from them was when I asked if Copenhagen Snus was pasteurized, and they told me, "All snus branded products from USST are pasteurized to make them spit-free." So I at least know that much, that the product is pasteurized.  However until it's out of the test market, we won't know much else about the specifics of the product itself.

i had this a year or two ago... a friend brought it back from the states.

it's just DIP inside a pouch.... you still have to spit.
someone can tell you over the phone it's pasteurized whatever...
there's no way i swallowed that... it was exactly just like dip.

so there you go... exactly as i said. and i had the natural cope version.

it was just ok... you will prefer regular dip over this. it isn't swedish snus.

just saw snaps on instagram. it may be different because the pouches are slightly smaller. who knows wait and see.

Mindexit. I think what you had before were dip pouches. And those are terrible.
