Hello guys! Nice to finally get some quality information about snus, this place is amazing.
Anyways, my story is that I'm in Medical School studying abroad from the United States in Antigua, and while studying I like to have something like dip in my mouth, so I developed a nasty habit of dipping. Keep in mind I loved the nicotine rush so I would put 6 pouches of Grizzly Wintergreen in my mouth (3 upper lip, 3 lower lip) and eventually got used to it. I couldn't find any dip on the island until I went to the airport and got what the locals here called "dip" in snus. This is my first snus doing properly (Klondike, fine cut, loose portions), and the taste is absolutely incredibly different. It's so much better than a normal straight American dip. I upperlipped it while forming a pris, luckily with the experience I had from long cut, I think I did it properly as it's been in my lip and hasn't moved around or given me mud mouth, I placed an order from buysnus, and I really hope customs clears it (Oden's 59 Cinnamon, Oden's Extreme Cold, and Oden's Pure Wintergreen and a free sample they're throwing in), I wish I would have read this thread before I placed the order, but I read up on how much safer it is for you, and I guess going into the medical field, that stood out to me. Anyways, I'll keep you updated on when they arrive and what I think from switching over, but honestly after this first snus and not needing a spitter, I probably will never look back. It just tastes and feels so much better.
