Thunder LIT: Frosted (White Dry) Chew Bags - Review. 20 November 2019.

A lot of V2 chew bag products have gone through redesigns, so I'm doing a bunch of these chew bag reviews this week. This is one that used to be known as Thunder Frosted: Ultra Strong (White Dry) Chew Bags. I was surprised to see I haven't reviewed this one before. I know, weird, one that I missed. It has been rebranded as Thunder LIT: Frosted (White Dry) Chew Bags, and now comes with a new design to go with it.  The flavor description for this one says, "Thunder LIT Frosted White Dry Chew has a powerful and long-lasting taste of spearmint and menthol."  Each can weighs 13.2 grams and has 24 portions for 0.55g portions.  The nicotine content is 22mg/g (2.2%), which breaks down to 12.1mg/portion.

If you aren't familiar with Nordic Chew, or "chew bags", these are products that are made similar to snus, but with two differences. First, the tobacco is cut instead of ground, like traditional snus. Second, the portion material is slightly thicker so the bags can be chewed to release flavor and nicotine. I don't personally chew them, but some do. Those two differences allow these products to legally be sold in the EU in places where snus is banned.

When you open the can, the aroma is a mild, lightly sweet smell of spearmint. The chew bags are dryer to the touch than others I've had before, so they may not be as comfortable at first when you put them under the lip. However, as they get more moist, they do get more comfortable. Also, there's a nice cooling presence that you feel in the lip when you put one in. The flavor is a very gentle spearmint flavor, which comes through in a mild way. There's also a mild tobacco character in the background. The flavor lasts, on average, 1 to 1.5 hours. As far as the nicotine goes, I'd place it between the strong and extra strong level.  If you like mint products, Thunder Frosted is a good one to check out.  This one has a long lasting flavor, solid nicotine strength, and a really nice can design!
