V2 Tobacco offers several different chewing tobacco products in various flavors.
WHAT IS CHEWING TOBACCO?
The term Chewing tobacco is historically used to describe two types of smokeless tobacco.
The first type is tobacco leaf. Here, the tobacco leaves are heated and moistened with steam so they can be cut into smaller pieces. This is the process we use for both our Long Cut and Chewing Bag products. The tobacco for Thunder Chewing bags are pieces cut with a length of between 5 - 50 mm and a width of 0.6-0.8 mm.
The other main type of smokeless tobacco is called spun tobacco, Scandinavian chewing tobacco or tobacco bits. Here is the tobacco leaf is first stripped (removal of stem). Thereafter, the tobacco leaves are spun and ‘twisted' together by hand into a strand. The strand is cut into pieces. For comparison, snus is made of tobacco powder, where the tobacco is simply grinded.
CHEWING TOBACCO USE
Whether it is tobacco leaf or spun tobacco, these tobacco products have historically been known as Chewing Tobacco. This can be misleading to the modern smokeless tobacco user: Chewing tobacco is not chewed like chewing gum. In practice, chewing tobacco is not even chewed that often. It is usually placed in the upper or lower jaw and not centrally in the mouth. Should the user wish to increase the speed of nicotine delivery and taste, they simply chewed one or two times lightly on the product before replacing it back against the upper or lower jaw with their tongue.
Our chewing tobacco products fall into three main categories:
Thunder Chew is different than Thunder Snus. The loose Chew is more like a paste and can be conveniently chewed as needed.
Loose snus, on the other hand, will crumble immediately when chewed which makes for a rather messy chewing experience.
Thunder Chew products is are available in as loose chewing tobacco and in some countries, in comfortable chew tobacco bags.
THUNDER CHEWING BAGS
Thunder Chewing Bags should not be confused with Thunder Portion Snus. The manufacturing process and the final products are fundamentally different.
The bags that we use for Thunder Chewing bags is specially designed to be chewed to release flavor and nicotine. It is made from a paper with a special weave which which is thicker and much stronger than the type of bag that snus is packed in.
Thunder Chewing Bags are also fundamentally different from the other chewing tobacco products on the market by being cut tobacco in small bags while others are made from spun tobacco.
