Ace X (Cold Mint) Super White Nicotine Pouches - Review. 5 February 2021.

Ministry of Snus has released a new addition to their Ace Superwhite Nicotine Pouch line: Ace X Cold Mint! This is their strongest nicotine pouch release to date, and comes with a slick, new black can.  Their description for this new one says "A flavor explosion of cooling mint and powerful peppermint.  But, we've dipped our pouches in rocket fuel to give you the strongest sensation yet."  Yes, rocket fuel.  No, they probably didn't add actual rocket fuel to it, so don't worry.  Each can weighs in at 15g and has 20 portions, for 0.75g portions.  The nicotine content is 20mg/g (2.0%), or 15mg/portion.

When you open the can, a sharp peppermint smell greets you.  It is a little on the sweeter side, but not super sweet or anything.  I'd say moderate, in terms of sweetness.  The portions are slim, and quite soft under the lip.  There's a slight burn in the lip at first, which gives way to a gentle cooling presence.  In terms of flavor, it's a refreshing, present taste of peppermint.  It does have a little sweetness to it, but not too much.  There's also a little menthol in the background, as well.  The nicotine feels a little above the strong level.  Not quite extra strong, but it does have a nice little extra kick to it.  The flavor seems to stick around for about 45 minutes.  And no, don't worry, I didn't taste any rocket fuel.

Rating and Final Thoughts

I rated this one at 3.29/5.  A pretty solid nicotine pouch product with a nice flavor, and a stronger nicotine kick.  Ministry of Snus makes a quality product, so for those interested in a nicotine pouch with a little extra kick, this one may be right up your alley!  While I'm not a nicotine pouch user myself, I'd definitely suggest it for those who enjoy that sort of product.
