U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company (USSTC)

Description

Skoal Snus a smokeless spitless tobacco product, consisting of pasteurized powdered tobacco, portioned into small teabag-like pouches. To use Snus, place the pouch between the cheek and the upper lip where the oral cavity absorbs the nicotine. Skoal Snus is available in Mint, Cinnamon, and Citrus Blend. Skoal Snus replaced a similar product, Skoal Dry, which has been discontinued. In 2011, Skoal Snus will be packaged in round cans similar to traditional smokeless tobacco products; the pouches will be larger, have a higher moisture content, and contain more nicotine.
