Lyft Nordic Winter (Nicotine Pouches) - Review. 2 December 2019.

Lyft Nordic Winter is a new, limited edition nicotine pouch product from Fiedler and Lundgren. This is the second limited edition product they have released in the Lyft series, following Lyft Strawberry Bloom, which they released earlier this year.  It's interesting to see companies making limited edition nicotine pouches now, much like we see in the Swedish Snus market.  This one is said to have a "classic taste of forest, flora and berries". The flavor is said to be inspired by the Nordic Flora. Each can weighs 16.8g and has 24 portions for 0.7g portions. The nicotine content is 8mg/g (0.8%), or 5.6mg/portion.

One thing I really like about this one is that it has the flexlid.  If you're not familiar with the flexlid, it's an expanding, rubbery catch lid that grows as you put more used portions in the top.  If you're someone like me who uses the catch lid, this is very beneficial when you have to go a full day without being able to empty the top.  And, as I've mentioned before, this is one of the greatest snus related inventions of all time, in my opinion.

If you're not familiar with Lyft, this is a nicotine pouch product. Meaning, it contains nicotine but no tobacco.  These products are generally for those who want to quit smoking, or tobacco in general, but may not want to quit nicotine.  Nicotine pouches usually contain some form of plant fiber (these contain E460 cellulose), and nicotine. Lyft also uses xylitol as a sweetener.  Nicotine pouches look a lot like portion snus, and are just as discrete and comfortable in the lip!
When I open the can, I notice a smell of spruce, pine, and a mild/dark cranberry type smell. It’s very outdoorsy, but for some reason also makes me think of Christmas. The portions are slim, and quite soft in the upper lip! The flavor is wintery, and Christmasy. There’s a nice taste of spruce, a hint of pine, and a woodsy type presence. The berry flavor is dark, and reminds me of cranberry. The closest thing I can think of for this one is that it almost reminds me of a nicotine pouch version of Lundgren's Sk√•ne Vit.  The flavor generally lasts about 45-55 minutes on average.  The nicotine feels to be around the regular strength level, as well.

I really enjoyed this one, mainly because it's such a unique flavor compared to other nicotine pouch products.  I think Fiedler and Lundgren should keep this one around full time, because it provides a unique alternative to those who use this type of product.
