There is always the DIY route for snus. If I try it someday, I think I will try DIY because I am a glutton for punishment.
I agree, i think the DIY route is the way to go, at least for us 'tobacco snob' types. I have been cruz'in around the usual internet sources of information in todays world and came across a very sophisticated and well developed YouTube and Web site that has been immersed for over 12 years in the world of aficionado Snus. To admit to you that I really do live under a rock, I am, well, I didn't even know there was such a thing as 'Snus aficionados' :lol: . Here are a couple of their links: & his UTube at:

But, now the downside, and the reason for DIY: Like our friends in the Vape World, they have gravitated in their journey away from the start point, which, is of course, Natural Leaf Tobacco, and wound up down the rabbit hole of artificial flavor chemistry:

Consider the following list from the above mentioned website of his 'favorite picks'. I will pose the obvious rhetorical question. "As you look over this list, where Is The Tobacco?"
