You pronounce it as "snoes". Snus is a type of tobacco in moist, finely ground form. Snus is made in Sweden and Norway and is also used in these countries. In the US, they call this form of tobacco "snuff" and it is marketed as a tobacco for athletes since your lungs are not affected when used.

In Sweden, snus is the national variant of smokeless nicotine use. More and more smokers exchange their cigarettes for this nicotine powder. Unlike the cigarette, snus can be consumed anywhere and no one is bothered by it. Snus is also a pleasant stimulant for non-smokers.
