Nicotine pouches are a smoke-, spit- and tobacco-free way to enjoy nicotine. There are a growing number of nicotine pouch brands on the market. As well as tobacco-free nicotine, these pouches contain food grade fillers, flavorings, pH adjusters, sweeteners, stabilizers and nicotine salt to enhance the taste. Each brand offers a range of different nicotine pouches flavors. It usually takes a couple of minutes for the flavor to come through and it can last for up to an hour. One of the most popular flavors is mint, often available in different strengths. Fruit and spice flavours are also common, but there are some unusual flavours out there as well.
Many nicotine pouch brands offer fruity flavoured pouches. Citrus flavours such as lemon, lime, orange and grapefruit are popular. For each of these, you will notice a slightly sour taste. This is because each of these flavors is derived from a citrus fruit that contains citric acid, which is a fragile organic acid. Other popular fruity flavors are the berry flavors. These include several different berries, and are often a mixture of fruits such as strawberries, raspberries and blueberries to create a sweet and sour taste. Cherry flavors can be divided into two groups – sweet cherry and sour cherry.
As we’ve mentioned, mint is the most popular flavor. It also comes in several different varieties. Peppermint is the strongest mint in the mint family, while spearmint is a sweeter alternative. Then there are the mint mixture flavors like apple mint and raspberry mint. Other flavors that can be found in different nicotine pouch brands include things like eucalyptus, menthol, spicy cinnamon, fragrant bergamot, lemon spritz, ginger blood orange, melon and licorice. Some of the more unusual flavours are combinations like Zyn’s esspressino – a mix of coffee, chocolate nougat and vanilla flavors – or Lyft’s Tropic Breeze mixture of mandarin, mango and passion fruit.
