Produced by the folks over at V2 Tobacco in Denmark, Thunder Ultra Strong Raspberry is as the name implies, an ultra strong raspberry flavored snus! With 21 mg of nicotine per gram of snus, Ultra Strong Raspberry really packs a punch, and as a fan of the rest of the Thunder lineup I was excited to give Ultra Strong Raspberry a go. Each can of Raspberry comes with 19.8 grams of snus.
The aroma of this snus was very fruity, and besides a strong raspberry aroma, I also noticed hints of fresh berries including possibly strawberry. After placing a portion in my mouth, I soon noticed a sweet raspberry taste with no tobacco taste present, and I found it to be very enjoyable. The flavor lasted for around twenty minutes, and then it began to get increasingly bitter. I was quite impressed with the fruity taste, as it really packed a punch and left a good taste in my mouth.
The portions came very moist, and after I put one in my mouth I began to notice a strong nicotine buzz set in right away (it reminded me a lot of the buzz I used to get from cigarette smoking before I switched to snus). They were also fairly comfortable in my lip, and were made with the same material as the rest of the Thunder line. I generally took my portions out around the thirty minute mark as I found that they tended to drip quite a lot after that.
Overall, I really liked the taste of Ultra Strong Raspberry especially since I enjoy using flavored snus to mix up my daily rotation every now and again. Ultra Strong also packs a great nicotine kick (at times its almost too much for me to handle!) to satisfy even the toughest snusers. I also suggest that heavy smokers looking to make the switch to snus should give this brand a go if regular brands aren’t strong enough.
