Anyway, 21 year old swedish snuser here. And that is how I found you James, through some random snus forum investigating how people in other contries view snus. Read your posts on your snus blog too, and I have some things to point out regarding that, but first, a question:

If you would try lös snus, how would do you "bake" it (direct translation from swedish)?

I remember when first starting to use lös and it took me a week or two to get it right, and I still have troubles doing it with one hand. I bet you find a solution for it, and you should, because as an authentic swedish snuser (who knows everything about snus and is always right ) I must say that the difference between portion and lös is like the difference between a cigarette rolled in toilet paper and an aged hand-rolled maduro cigar. I'm not exaggerating. Myself I use Grov lös almost exclusively and would love to hear what you have to say about it. And I would also like to point out that if you liked Göteborgs rapé you must try Tre Ankare which imo tastes less like fern and bark, and more like an early morning by a lake with dew hanging in the air and naked girls lying in the grass, pale and lovely.

Sorry for the big post, just seemed to important not to leave anything out.
I've been thinking about that. As far as I can tell, there's no way I'd be able to bake it by hand, or foot as the case may be. Since los stays together after baking pretty well, I have a feeling I could use an ICEtool, but I'm hesitant to buy one just in case it doesn't work. Sucks too 'cause I've got a can of Elixyr Los I got as a free gift.

I'll add Tre Ankare to my next order
