Zyn Lemon Spritz (Nicotine Pouches) - Review. 30 September 2019.

A few months ago, Swedish Match launched G4 Fizzy, a white tobacco product in the G4 line. This one seems to be a nicotine pouch version of that one, as I've noticed the flavors are pretty similar. This is a moist Zyn product, which means it's a Swedish market product, and not one that will be available locally in the US.  If you're new to Zyn, this is how Swedish Match describes this product: "NICOTINE WITHOUT TOBACCO: ZYN is for those who like to enjoy nicotine but dislike the experience of tobacco. You can use ZYN anytime and anywhere - just put the portion under your lip.”  If you're not familiar with nicotine pouches, these are products that contain nicotine, but no tobacco.

The flavor description for this one says, "ZYN Lemon Spritz brightens up life with its fresh, sour taste of citrus and grapefruit along with mild sweetness from peach and rose water. Together they form a sour sweet feeling under the lip. ZYN Slim Lemon Spritz is the latest flavor in ZYN Slim. It stands out from the rest by combining sour taste from citrus and grapefruit with sweetness from peach and rose water."  This one comes in a 16.8g can and I counted 21 portions, for 0.8g portions.  It has a nicotine content of 8mg/g, for 6.4mg/portion.

When is Zyn not Zyn? If you're used to the Zyn products sold in the US or those sold as "Zyn Mini Dry" in Sweden, these probably look quite different. They aren't as dry, and they look much like the other all white snus products sold on the market. These don't contain tobacco, however, so they're not going to be like an Epok or a G4. These are going to be closer to Skruf's new Skruf SuperWhite. This Zyn product is a moist product, still tobacco free, and containing nicotine, vegetable fiber and cellulose powder (E-460). While it may look like other white tobacco products, it doesn't actually contain tobacco.

This one seems to be incredibly similar to G4 Fizzy. The aroma of this one is a bright, citrusy smell. I pick up lemon, peach, and grapefruit in the aroma. The portions are slim, and soft, and feel just like regular snus under the lip. The taste is lightly sweet, and has a big citrus flavor. I pick up orange and grapefruit mainly. In the background, there's a little peach flavor, which is a nice compliment to the citrus taste! The nicotine strength feels to be about the regular level, and I find the flavor lasts up to about 45 minutes on average!  If you like G4 Fizzy, but want that in a nicotine pouch version, you'll enjoy this one.  I don't know if any stores are shipping this to the US yet, but I know it's available on Zyn.se and SnusBolaget.se for those in Sweden.
