Released as part of the 2015 Thunder Limited Edition series from V2, Thunder Extra Strong Prima Lima is a limited edition lime flavored snus with a big kick. Cans of Prima Lima come with 19.8 grams of extra strong snus (which has a nicotine content of about 17mg/g) in an original portion format. I’ve enjoyed a few different lime flavored snuses before (including Oden’s Extreme Lime and Goteborg’s Rape Lime), so I was curious to see how Prima Lima would compare!
After opening my can of Prima Lima, I soon began to notice a tart lime aroma as well as peppery tobacco in the background. Since the portions are moist, I began to notice the tartness of the lime flavor almost immediately after placing it in my mouth, and it lasted for about fifteen minutes before starting to subside. I felt that the lime flavor wasn’t very sweet, and the tartness of the lime definitely created an interesting mix with the pepperyness of the tobacco. Over time the tobacco taste became increasingly bitter and salty, and I usually took portions out after about forty five minutes since they start out pretty moist to begin with.
The portions are made with regular material, and I usually needed to roll them in my thumb for a moment in order to even out the tobacco. Prima Lima is an original portion snus with a fairly high moisture content, and this ensures that you begin to feel a nicotine buzz set in within a minute of putting in a portion. Keep in mind that the buzz can be quite intense, so be especially careful if you’re not used to using the extra strong brands!
Overall I enjoyed Prima Lima’s tart lime flavor as well as how it worked to compliment the tobacco taste I recommend Prima Lima to citrus fans who are looking to add something new to their daily rotation, and Lima pairs quite well with the hoppyness of IPA beers. However, make sure to order some soon as Prima Lima has a limited availability!
