Thunder Frosted (Slim White Dry) - Review. 6 October 2015.

Review Updated: 24 February 2020

Back in 2015, V2 launched slim white dry versions of three of their popular flavors. First came this one, Thunder Frosted (Slim White Dry). It was followed by Thunder Wintergreen (Slim White Dry), as well as Thunder Cool M (Slim White Dry), a personal favorite of mine. Now, the latter two have been discontinued, and this is the only one that remains. Interesting side note, the only Thunder Snus products made by V2 currently are this one, Thunder Frosted (Extra Strong), and the US market products Thunder Xtreme Original, Original Strong, Red Strong, Mint Strong, and Wintergreen Strong.  Since V2 Tobacco was purchased by Swedish Match, it seems their focus is now on chew bags and not so much on snus.  But, this one must be pretty popular, because it didn't ge the axe!

The flavor description for this one says, "Thunder Frosted Slim White Dry has a long lasting and refreshing spearmint flavor."  Each can weighs 15.4g and has 22 portions 0.7g each.  The nicotine content is 16mg/g (1.6%), or 11.2mg/portion.

When you open the can, the aroma that comes through is a refreshing, lightly sweet, gentle spearmint smell. The portions are dryer to the touch, given the white dry format. They aren't as comfortable at first, but as they get more moist in the lip they do get more comfortable. Also, being a mint product, you will experience that familiar cooling presence under the lip, as well. The flavor is a gentle, lightly sweet flavor of spearmint. It's mild, but refreshing! Though the nicotine content is only 11.2mg/portion, it still feels to be close to the extra strong level! The flavor, on average, lasts up to 1.5 hours - a benefit of the white dry format!  If you like regular Thunder Frosted, this one is a milder tasting version with a much longer lasting flavor!
