ZYN is a relatively new product from Swedish Match which was launched a few years ago. It has been gradually growing in popularity since its 2015 launch in a handful of markets. ZYN now comes in 6 flavors: Cool Mint, Peppermint, Spearmint, Wintergreen, Coffee, and Cinnamon. ZYN is rather interesting as it can be stored at room temperature for a whole year. It is also interesting because it has a child resistant lock. It can be a little challenging at first, but just line up the arrows on the side and it pops right open.
ZYN is a product that contains nicotine, but no tobacco. The pouches contain flavor, non-tobacco filler, nicotine salts, and pH balancers. The nicotine itself is tobacco derived, but there's no tobacco in ZYN. Each can contain 15 pouches weighing at 0.4 grams each. You'll notice these are quite flat and dry in terms of appearance; they don't look like most other pouches!
ZYN Wintergreen 03 is said to have a flavor of "wintery mint refreshment with a hint of sweetness". The aroma of this product is a mild, lightly sweet smell of wintergreen. It also has a light cooling presence in the lip, as well! When you put a pouch in, you'll notice that they are rather dry, but they aren't too uncomfortable. The pouches get moister the longer you have them in the lip, and the more moist they get, the more comfortable they get! The flavor of this one is a gentle taste of wintergreen with a light sweetness. It's relatively mild, and the wintergreen flavor is not in your face like American moist snuff products. I'm not a fan of wintergreen, but this is one product that I really enjoy! With the 3mg version, the nicotine feels to be a little lighter. It is noticeable, but it isn't too strong. It reminds me of mini portion snus in terms of strength. I notice the flavor, on average, to last between 30 to 40 minutes on average.
ZYN is a great product line from Swedish Match with a variety of flavors and nicotine strengths. If you’re looking to try a nicotine pouch product, ZYN is definitely worth trying out!
