Today, we’re going to be talking about something different – a product with no nicotine, and no tobacco: KickUp Real White Original! If you’re not familiar with KickUp, this is how Northerner.com describes it: “Kickup do not contain tobacco or nicotine. The only similarities to snus is the design of the can and the efficient way to quickly transport the contents to the body from under the lip. Whichever flavor you choose, you’ll get guarana, ginseng, vitamins and minerals instead of tobacco and nicotine. All of the products are made with black tea as the base. The Real White products also give you caries-inhibiting Xylitol.” So, while this product may look like snus, it is something completely different!
The flavor description for this product says “Real White Original is a dry ultra-white modern tobacco and nicotine free energy portion made from cellulose. It has a taste of bergamot orange and licorice that combine in a full and well balanced sweet flavor. Contains caffeine from guarana. This product has a regular sized white pouch. Xylitol is added for sweetness and increased dental health. The pouches also contain vitamins, minerals, ginseng, guarana and antioxidants that protect the body’s cells and provides long lasting effect.” The can has 20 portions weighing 1 gram each.
This product has an interesting aroma. You can smell licorice, some citrus, and a bit of pepper. The portions are pretty comfortable under the lip! When it comes to the flavor – it’s really not like anything I’ve had before, it’s extremely unique. The licorice flavor is clear, with some pepper, and some citrus. The flavor is mildly sweet, but not too sweet. Now, it doesn’t contain nicotine, but you do feel a little kick from this one due to the guarana/caffeine. In terms of longevity, the flavor seems to kick around for about 45 minutes.
If you don’t want tobacco or nicotine but still want a pouch in the lip, KickUp Real White Original is a good one to try out! It’s a unique product for sure!
