Topic: Design
General Onyx -- New Swedish snus. I bought this can yesterday. Swedish Match calls this black plastic can with a silver colored plastic lid 'deluxe packaging'. I am not impressed.

General Onyx is produced with a special tobacco blend in a new pouch form and deluxe packaging, offering a new standard for snus in Sweden." Read the complete Press Release 25.Oct.2005.
