UPDATE 10 Jun 2014:    After selling out world-wide in record time, V2 announced the return of the Thunder Snus 2014 Limited Edition Series....sort of.  Read Thunder Snus Limited Edition 2014 Lives Again for the details.

V2 Tobacco announced today the pending release of the Thunder Snus 2014 Limited Edition Series.  This Thunder Limited Edition Snus Series will consist of five new flavors: 

  • Thunder Snus Caramel-Vanilla
  • Thunder Snus Lemon
  • Thunder Snus Melon
  • Thunder Snus Apple
  • Thunder Snus Eucalyptus

Like the existing full-sized Thunder Snus products, these five snuses are Extra Strong in terms of nicotine with 16mg/gr.  Each can will contain 22 portions; .90 grams each...

Thunder Snus manufacturer V2 Tobacco uses Special Edition snuses as a way of field testing multiple new snus flavors among snus lovers around the world.  Sometimes no new production snus releases are the result.  Other times, snuses which started out as a part of a limited edition reappear as stand-alone products in the future.

Thunder Snus Limited Edition 2014Three of the five flavors in the Thunder 2014 Limited Edition; Lemon, Melon, and Eucalyptus, have already been on the market by other snus manufacturers such as Swedish Match, GN Tobacco, and Gotlandssnus.

The Thunder Snus Apple Extra Strong portion is based on the recipe of the new and popular Offroad Apple white mini portion snus.  Caramel-Vanilla is appearing as a snus flavor for the very first time.

The Thunder Snus Limited Edition 2014 package is being released in a 10 can tin containing two each of the Thunder Snus limited edition flavors in middle to late May 2014.

Moe Unz, Snus Legend and Manager of the SnusCentral.com Snus Shop is considering other options however.  "While the Thunder tins have always been very nice, they do add weight to the package which can increase shipping costs, especially for UPS orders."  The 10-can tins can also present a customs burden in many countries. 

Shipping more than 5 cans of snus per package with or without a tin tube can result in outragous duty and tax charges in many countries.  This is a reason why we automatically divide certain orders into 5 can packages shipped on multiple days for our Swedish Post customers."

"With the last Thunder Snus Limited Edition, we had the tins removed so the snus could be packaged more discreetly.  We did try cutting the tins in half but our packers kept cutting their fingers on the jagged edges." 

"This did not affect consumer prices, Unz added, "As always our fresh Thunder snus is sold at the lowest price available via the internet, how ever it is packaged."

Does this mean the SnusCentral.com Snus Shop will be selling 5-can packs or even individual cans of the Thunder Snus Limited Edition 2014 snus flavors?

Wiping the beer foam off his lips, Unz replied, "What?  I do not know yet.  We have in the past but I must talk with the Uber-Director of V2 Tobacco first.  I would have called already but I am still quite drunk.  I would not remember the conversation the next day.  I probably will not even remember this interview an hour after we are finished."

May Day is May 1st!  Downing another bottle of Carlsberg beer with one hand while signaling the bartender for another, Unz remarked "I have at least 2-3 weeks to figure all that out.  I will address after I have recovered from my May Day celebrating.  May Day is one of my favorite holidays....running around the Maypole drunk chasing pretty girls until I get dizzy and throw up; such beautiful memories!

The Thunder Snus 2014 Limited Edition is scheduled for release the final week of May.  You will probably see it much earlier; V2 is famous for releasing new snuses earlier than promised. 

You will find the Thunder Snus Limited Edition Selection 2014 at the SnusCentral.com Snus Shop until it is gone.  Act quickly!

 

 

Enjoy May Day and your snus!
