Another member of the 2015 Thunder Limited Edition Series from V2, Thunder Nilla Shock is an extra strong snus flavored with a refreshing hint of vanilla. Each can of Nilla Shock comes with 19.8 grams of extra strong snus for a total of twenty four portions.
Once I opened my can, I was greeted with a pleasant natural vanilla aroma, and it reminded me a bit of V2’s Brandy Alexander. After putting a portion in, I began to notice a strong and natural vanilla flavor set in almost right away. I didn’t detect much sweetness in Nilla, and the vanilla flavor was definitely front and center. I didn’t taste any tobacco until about the thirty minute mark, and even then it was quite subdued. Around the forty five minute mark I began to notice that the vanilla flavor became increasingly bitter, and I usually removed my portions after an hour.
The portion material was the same kind used by the rest of the Thunder lineup, and each portion has a nicotine content of about 17mg (for reference, regular strength snus has about 8mg per portion!). Furthermore, the portions are quite moist and I generally began to feel a strong nicotine buzz start to set in within a minute or so. The nicotine buzz was strong, and I usually found myself removing portions after about twenty five to forty minutes due to their strength!
As a whole, I enjoyed Nilla Shock a lot, and I can definitely see myself using it from time to time when I’m looking for a smooth taste and strong kick. The vanilla flavor was very tasty, and I find that it goes especially well with Vanilla Coke! I recommend placing an order for Nilla Shock sooner than later however, as like the rest of the Thunder Limited Edition Series, it won’t be available for too much longer!
