How and Where to Buy Snus (UK)
Even though we have left the EU, we still have our own local laws in the UK that prohibit the sale of snus in stores and online in the UK. This might be the reason for the increase in popularity of nicotine pouches - a tobacco-free alternative that works in the same way (a pouch you place under the top lip). Nicotine pouches (also often called white snus) are legal to sell and buy in the UK, making them a popular choice for former snusers.

Where is the Best Place to Buy Snus
While you may think purchasing your white snus from the supermarket or local store is the best way to buy your nicotine pouches - think again! Here are three important reasons why you should consider buying snus online in the UK:
- 1. Inconsistent Pricing. The prices and special deals are always changing, which can result in confusion on what a can of pouches from your favourite brand actually costs. It is also common that prices on your favourite brands will be higher than if you buy from online retailers such as Haypp. Make sure you do your research to make sure you get the best prices!
- 2. No Reviews. When you are faced with options, or are completely new to nicotine pouches, it can be tricky to pick which can to start with. How do you pick the right brand? How do you choose the right strength? What flavours are good? This can often lead to rushed purchases and picking the product of the day, rather than one that is right for you. If you shop online, you not only can browse at your own pace, but find customer and expert reviews of our different brands and products, to make sure you get the right pouches for you.
- 3. Less Options and Smaller Stock. When buying from physical stores, it can often mean reduced stock and a smaller number of options, as there is often no space to store large quantities of stock. So, how will you know if a store will have your favourite pouches in stock? You aren’t likely to know until you make the trip to the store. However, if you order online, you can order and check the availability of your favourite products and get them delivered straight to your door.
