Lyft Nicotine Pouches: Melon - Review. 2 December 2018.

The nicotine pouch category has been growing more and more for the past few years, and now it appears as though BAT/Winnington (makers of Epok) are getting into this category with their new Lyft product! Lyft is a nicotine pouch product that is made from eucalyptus and pine fiber. Lyft does not contain tobacco, but does contain nicotine. Lyft comes in all the same flavors as Epok, so if you're wanting to switch from Epok (which contains tobacco) to Lyft (which doesn't contain tobacco), you will be easily able to find your favorite flavor.

I'm kicking off these reviews with Lyft Melon, because Epok Melon is my favorite flavor in the Epok series.  The flavor description says, "LYFT Melon Slim All White Portion has a sweet and tropical taste of melon that is delivered in crisp white portions without tobacco."  This product comes in a 16.8 gram can with 24 portions for 0.7 gram portions. The nicotine content is 8.5mg/g (0.85%) for 5.95mg/portion.  Note, this is the same as Epok Melon in terms of contents and nicotine level.

I won't go too in depth on the differences between Epok and Lyft, but if you want to know more, I wrote an article about it, and I also did a video about it.  But here's a photo just so you can see it real quick.  You'll notice the cans look similar except the name, the portions look similar, and even the material inside the pouch looks similar.  The way the pouches feel in the lip, the way the nicotine releases, and even the flavors are all very similar as well.  So if you like Epok, you'll probably also really like Lyft.

As a big fan of Epok Melon, I will say this - this product seems almost identical to Epok Melon, even though Lyft Melon doesn't contain tobacco. I was really impressed with that. The aroma is a mild, fresh, lightly sweet melon smell that reminds me of cantaloupe. The portions are slim, soft, and feel very comfortable in the lip. The flavor is very much like the aroma; there is a natural, fresh taste of cantaloupe. It's not overly sweet, but does have a little touch of sweetness to it. The nicotine strength feels to be about the regular level. The flavor, on average, lasts about 45 to 55 minutes.

I enjoy tobacco and don't plan on ever switching to nicotine pouches, but I will say this - these are some of the best nicotine pouches I've tried yet.  I think BAT/Winnington did a great job with these!
