Thunder Cool Mint - Review. 12 August 2015.

I know what you're thinking. "The world needs another mint snus like I need another hole in my head." Thunder Cool Mint is one of the newest products from V2 Tobacco and one of the first new products to roll out of the new factory When I asked Patrick from V2 what made this snus different from Frosted, he described it as, "...a smooth and sweet mint - one that does not burn as much as Frosted."  The can formerly had a blue/white theme and a very "summer swagger" looking design when it was launched in 2012.   However that design changed in 2015 to the standard black Thunder can, presumably to match the look of the rest of the Thunder line.

So, how's the snus? When you open the can it has a very fresh and minty smell - it's very clear and crisp. It's more of a peppermint smell than spearmint, which Frosted predominately smells/tastes of. The taste is very fresh - a smooth and mellow mint taste with a very slight sweetness to it - but not like gross sweet. The portions are quite moist and have a hell of a drip, but it doesn't burn as much as Frosted does, which has a vicious kick in the back of your throat. It has a nice little tingle to it as well. Being a Thunder brand of snus it is quite strong, so it packs quite a kick. All in all it's a pretty good snus. If you're into mint it's definitely one to check out.
