Epok vs Lyft - What Are The Differences? 27 November 2018.
Looking at the cans, there isn't much of a difference other than the name. The main difference I notice is that the Epok product contains a warning label along the side, like most snus products do. The Lyft product, however, does not have a warning label on the side. Both products contain 24 portions at 0.7 grams each in a 16.8 gram can. The nicotine content of Epok and Lyft regular strength is 8.5mg/g (0.85%), and the nicotine content of Epok and Lyft Strong is 14mg/g (1.4%). So the can design is similar, but the portion weight, count, and nicotine strength is the same on Epok and Lyft, both the strong and regular strength variants.
Looking at the products themselves, they also don't look that different. The pouches are of a similar color, size, and feel. The material inside the pouch, while different, looks similar. Epok, to the left, contains white tobacco - which is a tobacco that has gone through a type of cleansing. Lyft, to the right, does not contain tobacco, rather, it contains a material made of a mix of eucalyptus and pine fiber. The tobacco inside Epok and the plant fiber inside Lyft are pretty similar looking - both moist, ground, looking a lot like each other. The flavor of these products is also very similar, which was quite surprising for me. I've compared various Epok products to their Lyft counterparts and haven't noticed much of a difference in that area.
So, after comparing these two products, I was surprised by how similar they are. The cans have different names on them and one has tobacco while one doesn't, but outside of that, they're very similar. Honestly, if you gave me a Lyft pouch and an Epok pouch and asked me to tell the difference, I'm not sure I could do it 100% of the time. They're that similar.
