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 Nicotine Pouches 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 pouch 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 can is 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 flavor of “wintergreen with hints of cooling menthol, creamy sweetness and notes of wood”. A can of Lyft comes with 24 portions, weighing 0.7 grams each. It also has a nicotine content of 16mg/g.
Let's get to the Lyft Winterchill X-strong nicotine pouch! I’m not the biggest fan of wintergreen, but I was able to finish a can of this stuff. That’s pretty impressive. When you open the can, the aroma is unmistakably wintergreen, but more gentle and with a light touch of sweetness to it. It’s a lot like wintergreen gum. The portions are slim, soft to the touch, and comfortable in the lip! When I put a portion in, I notice a light burn and then a little cooling presence. In terms of flavor it is, as expected, wintergreen. But, it didn’t turn me off like wintergreen usually does. I found the taste of this one to be milder, and more approachable. The wintergreen is relatively gentle, and lightly sweet. This one, like Lyft Freeze, packs a heck of a kick; it feels to be well above the extra strong 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!
