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 Ice Cool Slim Strong 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 “refreshing and crispy peppermint flavor with elements of sweetness and some herbal notes.” The can contains 24 nicotine pouches and comes with a nicotine strength of 14mg/g.
When you open the can, you’ll notice it has a sharp, fresh, mildly sweet smell of peppermint! The nicotine pouches look and feel like regular snus in the lip; they are slim, and also soft! Being a mint product this one also comes with a nice cooling sensation when you put a pouch under your lip. The flavor is predominantly peppermint; it comes through in a very present way with a light sweetness about it. It’s a very refreshing flavor. The nicotine feels to deliver the same way snus does, and this one feels to be well above the strong level, so expect a nice kick with this one! 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 Ice Cool Strong nicotine pouches are a great way to still enjoy nicotine, but quit tobacco if you desire to do so.
