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 Mint 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 mellow spearmint flavor, perfectly combined with the freshness of cooling menthol“. The can contains 24 nicotine pouches and comes with a nicotine strength of 8mg/g.
When you open the can, you’ll notice a fresh, mild, lightly sweet smell of spearmint. The nicotine pouches look and feel like regular snus in the lip; they are slim, and also soft! In the lip, you’ll also notice a cooling, fresh sensation! The flavor is a gentle spearmint flavor. It comes through in a lightly sweet, fresh way. I like the taste of this one more than the Ice Cool version, honestly. The nicotine feels to be at the regular 8mg/g level, so not too strong, not too weak. 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 Mint nicotine pouches are a great way to still enjoy nicotine, but quit tobacco if you desire to do so.
