Retrofit a Camel "SNUS" fridge for your needs! 7 February 2011.

Ever wanted your own snus fridge? Tired of a full freezer of stuff and want chilled snus within reach? Today I'm going to teach you how. For the past few years I've kept an eye on eBay and Craigslist. Every so often a Camel "SNUS" fridge shows up. Sometimes they go for $100 bucks, sometimes $300. I came across one recently for $30 bucks on eBay, so I thought I'd share how to make a Camel "SNUS" fridge adapt to your needs. This is a picture of the original fridge as made to hold Camel "SNUS".

Now, obviously it isn't big enough to hold cans of real Swedish Snus. Most of these come with the trays in them. So you simply remove the tray. Pretty basic. So after taking the tray out I began adding my own snus to it. This unit is their smallest one, and I found it holds about 14 cans, two rows on each side and a few down the middle. They fit pretty comfortable in there and the unit doesn't seal, but does keep the snus itself chilled.

The only snus I put in this is stuff that I actually go through regularly. My current rotation. In this one, for instance, I have some Nick & Johnny, a can of Thunder, some Olde Viking Original, Phantom Blue White Portion and some General Long Sterk. The motor itself runs about as loud as a computer fan, it emits a little hum - but nothing too noisy or annoying. After letting it get going for a while I checked the snus and it's nice and cold. Good stuff!

And there you have it. You can have chilled snus within reach. This enables you to keep it out of your fridge and keep your currents within arms reach from your couch, and will help you rotate your freezer stock a little better (for those of you who stockpile). So keep your eyes open on eBay and Craigslist, throw a bid in on whatever you see because you never know when one of these will go unnoticed and you'll snatch one up for a pretty killer price!


  1. Hey Chad, this looks pretty cool. What's the difference between keeping a few cans in the butter slot in my fridge and freezing some? I haven't heard back from you on those samples - did you get the email with my mailing address?

  2. No sir, didn't get it. Re-send it and I'll get something out to you ASAP!

  3. No problem. I just sent the info again, to both email addresses.

  4. hey cool! i just bid on this one http://www.ebay.com/itm/snus-refrigerator-display-/261133164437?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cccbfdf95&autorefresh=true
