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 Melon 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 melon flavor that has been superbly blended with a splash of crispy cucumber“. The can contains 24 nicotine pouches and comes with a nicotine strength of 8mg/g.
When you open the can, the aroma is a present, fresh, fruity smell of melon! It’s not watermelon though, it seems to be close to cantaloupe. The nicotine pouches look and feel like regular snus in the lip; they are slim, and also soft! The flavor is quite good. This is easily my favorite Lyft product. It’s a refreshing taste of melon, close to cantaloupe if I had to place it. It’s quite natural, gentle, mildly sweet, and delicious. The nicotine strength on this one feels to be right around 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 Melon nicotine pouches are a great way to still enjoy nicotine, but quit tobacco if you desire to do so.
