Lyft Nicotine Pouches are new products from Fiedler & Lundgren, the makes of the popular Epok White Tobacco product. If you aren’t familiar with it, Lyft is a product that contains nicotine, but no tobacco! Lyft actually consists of eucalyptus and pine fiber, as well as nicotine extract, which is extracted from tobacco. Lyft is an all white product, which means they are white before, during, and after use! What I really like about Lyft is the can design. I know, can design isn’t everything, but I really geek out when it comes to how a can looks. These cans are different from others because they are translucent in the bottom and you can actually see through the can. It’s really neat, in my opinion.
The flavor of Lyft Lime Strong Nicotine Pouch is described as “a juicy lime flavor, perfectly combined with the sweet and sour notes of lemon and lime zest”. The portions are 0.7 grams each, and it comes with a nicotine strength of 14mg/g. If you are used to strong snus, for example, this product is, on paper, at that level. However, it feels much stronger - but more on that later. The portions are also the slim type, which means they fit better in the lip than regular sized portions, in my opinion.
The aroma of this one is a natural, tart, sweet lime smell! It's very natural as well, which I dig. As I mentioned above, the portions are the slim type, which means they are going to fit really well in the lip. They are quite soft, and comfortable! They don’t feel exactly like snus portions, and they are slightly dryer. Compared to other nicotine pouch products, these feel a lot like the Skruf Super White in the lip; these are not the dry/mini types like with Zyn, for example. The taste of this one is a straightforward lime flavor. Like the aroma, it is very natural tasting. It's a little tart, and a little sweet, which works pretty well together. If you've ever had lime Jello, it tastes a lot like that.
What’s interesting about these is that even though the nicotine strength is classified as strong, it feels to be extra strong. It has a quick nicotine hit, which seems to last quite a while as well. The flavor lasts a pretty good amount of time! Usually, I find the flavor will stick around until about the 40-50 minute mark, which is pretty impressive.
Lime isn’t a common flavor when it comes to tobacco products and nicotine pouches. This is one of the better ones out there, in my opinion. For me, this is a great product to pair with a beer! But, if you like the tart taste of lime, this one tastes good on it’s own, as well!
