Over the past year, the nicotine pouch category has exploded. When it first came around, I wasn’t sure what to think. I didn’t imagine it would be around this long. Like white tobacco products, I thought it might be a fad. But here we are now, with more and more of these products bursting onto the scene. Lyft seems to be one of the more popular lines now. The Lyft line is made by Fiedler & Lundgren, makers of Epok. You may be asking yourself, “What are these nicotine pouches things anyway?” Well, I’m glad you asked. If you didn’t ask, I’m going to tell you anyway. Nicotine pouches, or nicopods as some call them, are products that contain nicotine, but no tobacco. The Lyft line, for example, contains eucalyptus and pine fiber. I may not be a user of these, but I’m glad they exist - because they serve as a great alternative for those who want to quit tobacco, but still enjoy nicotine!
The Lyft Nicotine Pouches cans are a thing of beauty. I love the unique catch lid, but most of all I really dig the fact that you can see through the can. I know, that’s a little thing, but I find it to be a really unique wow factor when I’m out and about and a friend catches me with one of these. Lyft also comes in a wide variety of flavors - licorice, mint, tropical fruit, wintergreen, and more! When it comes to this one, the flavor description says it has a taste of “tropical fruits such as mandarin, passionfruit and mango”. A can of Lyft comes with 24 portions, weighing 0.7 grams each. It also has a nicotine content of 8mg/g.
When I smell Lyft Tropical Breeze, it makes me think of the beach. Sitting in the sand, a tropical drink in my hand, living the good life. It’s very much a tropical fruit smell - much like a mango/guava hybrid. The portions are slim, soft to the touch, and comfortable in the lip! The flavor is, like the aroma, tropical! It’s a present, mildly sweet, tropical fruity taste. Like the aroma, it seems to pair both mango and guava. The nicotine level on this one feels to be at the regular strength level. I find the flavor on these lasts a pretty good amount of time, usually 35-45 minutes on average!
The nicotine pouch category is certainly growing, and provides a great alternative for those who enjoy nicotine, but may want to quit tobacco. These products are a great component to the harm reduction movement as well, as they are a much safer alternative to smoking!
