Today, we aren’t talking about snus. We also aren’t talking about chew bags. Today, we are talking about nicotine pouches. More specifically, Lyft Blueberry nicotine pouches! These are products that contain nicotine, but no tobacco. For the Lyft line, these actually contain eucalyptus and pine fibers. They look like snus, feel like snus, and release nicotine like snus, but contain zero tobacco. This is a growing new category for people who want to continue to enjoy nicotine, but may want to give up tobacco all together.
The flavor description for these says it has a “sweet and juicy flavor of swedish blueberries“. The can contains 24 nicotine pouches and comes with a nicotine strength of 8mg/g.
When you open the can, the aroma is a natural, lightly sweet smell of blueberry! This isn’t a common flavor with snus or chew bags, so it’s nice to try something a little different from the norm. The nicotine pouches look and feel like regular snus in the lip; they are slim, and also soft! I’m not sure what Swedish blueberries taste like, or if they taste any different from blueberries anywhere else in the world. These do taste like the blueberries I’ve had before, however. The blueberry taste is quite present, natural, and has a little sweetness to it, as well. The nicotine strength on this one feels to be about the regular strength level. I find the flavor lasts a pretty good amount of time; usually I can keep one in for up to the 45-55 minute mark!
While these products may not be for snus users, or chew bag users, they definitely have a place on the market. Lyft Blueberry nicotine pouches are a great way to still enjoy nicotine, but quit tobacco if you desire to do so.
