Today, we’re going to be talking about Zyn Nicotine Pouches: Cool Mint (06mg). Zyn is a relatively new product from Swedish Match which contains nicotine but no tobacco! The Northerner.com description says “ZYN pouches are a tobacco derived nicotine product. The nicotine in ZYN is extracted from the plant Nicotiana tabaccum (“tobacco”) However; the product contains no tobacco plant matter (e.g., leaf, root) in any form.” More and more these days people are wanting to quit smoking and tobacco, but still enjoy nicotine, so these products are filling that need!
Before we jump into the review, I want to mention something neat about the Zyn cans. If you peel off the top label (which has the government mandated warning label), you’ll find How To Open and How To Use instructions. You’ll also have a can that looks much, much better. Zyn has a childproof lock, so to open it you’ll need to line up the arrows on the can and pop the can open. Then, put a Zyn pouch in your upper lip and enjoy!
The flavor description for this product says, “Experience the next evolution in nicotine satisfaction. ZYN Cool Mint 06 delivers a refreshing burst of flavor and nicotine in a cleaner, more discreet, smokeless and spitless upper-lip pouch. An icy burst of invigorating mint flavor. This product has a smaller white pouch.”
When you open the can, the aroma is a gentle mint/menthol aroma. The pouches are small and dry to the touch, so at first they aren’t the most comfortable, but as they get more moist they do get more comfortable! The taste is quite similar to the aroma. Zyn Cool Mint has a lightly sweet mint taste with present notes of menthol. The nicotine strength is stronger than the 03 version. If you have used snus before, it feels to be about as strong as a regular strength Swedish Snus product (8mg/g). The flavor on these lasts about 35-45 minutes on average.
If you’re interested in trying something different, or want to enjoy nicotine without tobacco, Zyn Nicotine Pouches: Cool Mint (06mg) is worth a try!
