Dryft is a nicotine pouch product made in Sweden that contains no plant matter, is smokeless, discrete, clean, fresh, and spit-free, and does not require refrigeration. Dryft is used in the upper lip, and the manufacturer says it can be used for up to 45 minutes. You may be asking yourself what's in Dryft, as this is a tobacco-free product. Dryft pouches contain a chewing gum base and tobacco-derived nicotine. While the nicotine is tobacco derived, it doesn't contain any tobacco plant matter in any way - left, root, stem, etc.
A can of Dryft weighs 7.5 grams and contains 20 pouches at 0.375 grams per pouch. Dryft products are available in two nicotine strengths - 2mg and 7mg. 2mg is for those with a lower nicotine tolerance, and 7mg is for those who need something with more kick!
Dryft comes in a small, round can which is translucent - which I think is pretty neat. They fit quite well in the pocket and are smaller than your regular snus or dip cans. There is also a compartment on top of the lid where you can discard of your used pouches if you aren't near a trash can! Dryft Peppermint 2mg is said to have "a fresh flavor of peppermint in a smaller white pouch”. The aroma of Dryft Peppermint is just that, peppermint. It's a light, mild peppermint smell with a light touch of sweetness. The pouches themselves are quite dry to the touch, but as they get moister, they do get more comfortable in the lip. As they start out dry, you will find these have a long-lasting flavor in the lip.
When I put one in the lip, I do notice a nice cooling presence in the lip, which adds a fresh element to this product! The flavor is a light, gentle taste of peppermint with a light touch of sweetness. The 2mg Dryft products are lighter in nicotine. To compare them to a snus product, they feel about as strong as mini portion snus. For non snusers, this means they are going to be on the lighter end of nicotine delivery. This is for people who may not need a lot of nicotine. I find Dryft products, on average, last about 30 minutes in the lip.
Dryft comes in a lot of exciting flavors like Black Cherry, Cinnamon, Citrus, Coffee, Dragon Fruit, Peppermint, Spearmint, and Wintergreen. If you're looking for a product that has nicotine but not tobacco and is discrete to use anywhere, anytime, give Dryft a try!
