Why is snus so culturally attached to Sweden?

The era of Swedish snus began in the 1800s when farmers began to mince tobacco leaves in their coffee grinders. The product quickly became popular and years later when Swedes began to migrate to the US, snus had been so culturally attached that the Swedes brought the product overseas. This explains why snus is still culturally attached to Sweden, as we were the first to consume and bring the products overseas.
