Nicotine pouches are products that contain nicotine but no tobacco. Nordic Spirit, for example, contains plant fiber and gum base.
Nordic Spirit Nicotine Pouches is an “all white” line from Nordic Snus AB, makers of LD Snus. The nicotine pouch category has been gradually growing over the past year, and more and more companies are releasing these products. Nicotine pouches or, as some call them, nicopods, are products that contain nicotine but no tobacco. Nordic Spirit, for example, contains plant fiber and gum base. I’m a snus user myself, and I don’t really use nicotine pouches, but I’m glad they’re out there. There are quite a lot of people out there who want to quit tobacco but may not want to quit nicotine. These nicotine pouches provide that alternative. These products have been becoming more and more popular, so it appears as though people are digging these.
When it comes to the flavor description for this one, it says it has a “well balanced mint flavor with a combination of fresh menthol and sweet peppermint”. This one comes with 20 portions in a can and a nicotine content of 14mg/g. It comes in a can that is similar to your average snus can, and the portions look like regular snus portions. They may feel a little different, but that’s really the only difference.
The aroma of Nordic Spirit Mint is a little menthol, and a little peppermint. Both are balanced pretty well and relatively gentle in terms of presence. The portions feel a little dry to the touch, but they aren’t uncomfortable by any means. They’re slim and fit well in the lips. When I put a portion in my lip, I notice a mild, fresh cooling presence with this one, which is common of most mint products. The flavor is a mild peppermint flavor, with a light hint of menthol. With this one, I notice a light hint of licorice in the background which makes this one taste pretty unique from other mint products on the market. It’s pretty well rounded, and the flavor actually works quite well! The nicotine feels to be a little above the regular strength level. It’s not too strong, but not too weak - it falls right in that sweet spot! I find the flavor lasts quite a while, usually up to an hour per portion!
Nordic Spirit is a solid release in the nicotine pouch category. Both flavors are very unique. The Mint flavor is refreshing and mild. The Bergamot Wild berry one is traditional, but with a different twist on it from the traditional flavor profile. If you like nicotine pouches, these are worth trying!
