I have a can of Straight and Mint.....the only ones they're releasing for now, and these are limited area releases, just like the Cope Southern Blend. Preformed cubes of Long Cut, just take one out, pop it in and use as usual. they're not too tightly formed though. So, not like packing a tight prilla of loose, just tight enough to get it out of the can and get it in your lip. No flavor changes or changes to the actual cut of tobacco, just cubes. According to USST, they will be available nationwide by Q1 of 2013 but, they are starting the pre releases in their biggest dip markets. I'll try to post some pics soon.
