Today we’re going to get LIT, and no, not that kind of lit. Today, we’re talking about Thunder Lit Original Chew Bags, by V2 Tobacco! This product was formerly known as Thunder Ultra Strong Original Chew Bags, but has been rename and redesigned. If you aren’t familiar with chew bags, these are products for the EU market, and are a little different from snus. They are made the same way but with two differences – the tobacco inside the pouch is cut instead of ground, and the portion material is a little thicker so these can technically be chewed to release more flavor and nicotine.
The flavor description for Thunder Lit OP says, “Thunder LIT Original Chew has a traditional tobacco flavor with hints of bergamot. This product has a regular sized pouch”. Each can weighs 17.6 grams with 22 portions. It is also an ultra strong product, so it has a whopping 22mg/g of nicotine!
When you open the can, there is a nice, mild tobacco taste with just a light hint of bergamot. The tobacco flavor is earthy, and very present. The chew bags themselves are moist, and feel great in the lip! The taste is a great taste of tobacco – mild, earthy, and flavorful. The bergamot is very mild, and adds a tea-like quality to the flavor. The nicotine kick is pretty strong as well, providing a nicotine level that feels around the extra strong range. I can usually keep these in for up to about 45-55 minutes on average, so they have good flavor longevity as well!
I was very impressed with the Thunder Lit Original Chew Bags, and they’ve definitely become my favorite chew bag products on the market. If you like tobacco centric tastes, this is one you’ll want to check out!
