RICHMOND, Va., April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Longhorn announced today the latest offer for a consumer that saves both time and money, the Longhorn 7.2 oz. value tub.  The launch follows the introduction of the 14.4 oz. value tub in March of 2012.


"Tubs are the fastest growing segment in the category," according to Longhorn Associate Brand Manager Tracy Vernon, "and are designed for the moist snuff user who is looking for value.  Our value tub offers savings and convenience.  Buying in bulk provides a lower price per can and eliminates the need for consumers to make multiple trips to the store."

Consumers can now get a 7.2 oz. tub of one of their favorite flavors and cuts of Longhorn.  Each tub is the equivalent of 6 cans and includes a refillable can inside.  The Longhorn 7.2 oz. value tub is available in six flavors and cuts: Long Cut Wintergreen, Straight and Natural, and Fine Cut Natural, Wintergreen, and Mint.  This campaign will be supported with eye-catching POS.
