Produced by V2 Tobacco of Denmark, the Thunder brand of snus is known for being on of the strongest brands on the market today. Every can of Ultra Strong Frosted comes with 11.7 grams of extra strong snus and every portion has a whopping 21mg of nicotine!
Once I opened my can, I was soon greeted with a strong spearmint aroma which was much stronger smelling than other mint brands I’ve tried. After placing a portion in my mouth and allowing a few minutes for the flavor to develop, I soon began to notice a crisp and refreshing spearmint taste with hardly any tobacco present. The spearmint was complimented by just a tad of salt as opposed to sugar, and I felt that this created a much better flavor than what you see in American mint snus brands (such as RJR’s overly sweet Camel Frosted Snus).
The portions were made of average material, and the snus inside was evenly distributed.
Because its a white portion snus, I found that the nicotine hit comes on slow and takes about six to eight minutes before fully kicking in. This is a good thing for me because I find the buildup less intense than original portions (especially with this level of nicotine!). The buzz is extremely strong, and even though I normally use stark portions, I had to take Ultra Strong Frosted portions out after only fifteen minutes (not sure how long it takes before you begin to experience drip because of this!). If you’re not used to using stronger snuses, I recommend exercising caution before trying this one, otherwise you may experience nausea!
Overall, I enjoyed White Ultra Frosted more than I was expecting. I don’t normally enjoy mint dominant snuses, but I found that Ultra Frosted has a very natural mint taste without tasting sugary like some brands do. I recommend Thunder White Ultra Strong Frosted to those who are looking for a tasty mint dominant brand which produces a strong nicotine buzz which builds up over time. Ultra Strong Frosted is a refreshing after dinner treat and also pairs well with teas as well as with a gin & tonic!
