Today I’m going to be reviewing a new nicotine pouch product launched in the US – Zyn Citrus, in the 3mg and 6mg strengths! 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 enjoy nicotine without tobacco, so these products are filling that need!
The flavor description for Zyn Smooth says, it has “a slightly tart blend of lemon and lime flavors with a hint of sweetness“. Each can weighs 6 grams and has 15 portions. The 3mg strength is 3mg per pouch, and the 6mg strength is 6mg per pouch.
These two products are basically the same, other than the nicotine strength, so I’ll be reviewing them together. The aroma of Zyn Citrus is a mild, lightly sweet, mildly tart lemon smell. The pouches themselves are quite dry, but as they get moist in the lip they do get more comfortable. The flavor is very much like the aroma, it is rather gentle, and has a lightly tart/lightly sweet taste of lemon. The 3mg one, in terms of nicotine, feels comparable to regular strength snus. The 6mg one, in terms of nicotine, feels to be a little stronger than that. The flavor, like with most Zyn products, generally lasts around 30-40 minutes on average.
If you like nicotine pouches, and want something that isn’t mint, check out Zyn Citrus. It’s a more subtle taste, but it’s certainly something different when almost everything else these days is mint!
