Volt Spearmint Breeze (Nicotine Pouches) - Review. 12 May 2021.

Some of you may remember a snus product from a little while back called G3 Volt. That product was discontinued/rebranded as G3 Pow. Shortly after that, I reviewed a new product that popped up in Denmark called Volt Nicotine Pouches. It made me start to put the pieces together that Volt would most likely live on as a nicotine pouch line. Sure enough, a new line of nicotine pouches called Volt has popped up from Swedish Match. When they talk about this line, they say "Spark the unexpected! VOLT are nicotine pouches with fresh flavors in surprising combinations. Interesting new flavors in a variety of strengths, so find just your favorite and give the imagination wings."  Today, we're talking about Volt Spearmint Breeze!  The flavor description for this one says, "Spearmint Breeze has a soft, round and full-bodied spearmint taste, topped with peppermint and menthol. Together, it gives a slightly softer and more complex taste and a fresh feeling. It brings to mind cooling winds and a slight frost".  Each can weighs 16.8g and has 21 portions, for 0.8g portions.  The nicotine strength (on the bottom of the can) says 9mg/portion, which would be 11.25mg/g in total.

When I tried this product, I noticed something:  it's basically the same thing as Zyn Spearmint Slim, but with a different name.  When I talked to Swedish Match, I imagined this line would be replacing Zyn, however I was told that wasn't the case, and that both Volt and Zyn would be sold.  So, if you've had that product, this one is basically the same.  But, if not, I'll still do a full review of this product!

With nicotine pouches, there's a ton of mint ones, but not a lot of spearmint ones.  But, this one is certainly a tasty one!  When you open the can, you're greeted by a fresh smell of spearmint. It's smooth, and lightly sweet in nature. The pouches are comfortable under the lip, with a slim, soft portion material. Being a mint product, there's also a nice cooling presence under the lip. In terms of the flavor, it's pretty good. It's refreshing, but mild, and not super in your face. The spearmint flavor is smooth, and sweet, but not overly sweet; it has a pretty well balanced flavor profile. The nicotine strength on this one feels to be a little above regular strength, and the flavor lasts about 40-45 minutes, on average.

Rating and Final Thoughts

I rated this one at 3.58 out of 5.  For me, anything between a  3 and a 4 in terms of nicotine pouches is what I'd consider to be a decent or solid product.  With there not being many spearmint nicotine pouches on the market, this one definitely stands out.  It has a refreshing flavor, a nice can design, and a solid strength.  Again, it's basically the same thing as the Zyn Spearmint Slim, just with a new label, but it's still a tasty product if you're looking to try a new line of nicotine pouches!
