Zyn Cucumber Lime (Nicotine Pouches) - Review. 27 May 2023.

I've been trying to make a cucumber flavored product for a long time.  In fact, in 2021, I was in the process of releasing a cucumber flavored nicotine pouch with 77.  It didn't end up happening, and I've tried to make one in the Artisan family, but I couldn't get much interest for it, or get people to vote for it.  However, I was excited to see Swedish Match has picked up the ball and released Zyn Cucumber Lime!  I grabbed some recently and have been really digging it.  The main reason I wanted this flavor in a pouch is because I'm a big fan of Gatorade Cucumber Lime.  I know, it may sound like a weird flavor, but it's surprisingly refreshing!  And, this product is no exception!  Oh, a quick note.  In the picture to the left, that's actually some cucumbers we have growing in our greenhouse. To give you an idea of how much I like cucumbers.

The flavor description on this one says, "A taste of cucumber, lime and lemon with a hint of cooling eucalyptus".  Each can weighs 16.8 grams and has 21 pouches for 0.8g each.  The nicotine content is 8mg/g (0.8%), which breaks down to 6.4mg/pouch!

Going into it, spoiler alert, this one was everything I hoped it could be.  Opening up the can, I pick up a nice, even mix of cucumber and lime.  This stuff smells great!  The pouches are slim, moderately soft, with a decent moisture amount.  In find them to be pretty comfortable under the lip.  When I put a pouch in, I notice a tart, lightly sweet presence of lime.  Along with it, a fresh, crisp flavor of fresh cucumber.  It's a pretty even mix, and it works really well.  The nicotine strength on this one feels about regular, maybe a little lower.  It's still satisfactory though, with a nice delivery of nicotine.  The flavor hangs out a good 45-50 minutes, on average!  And it stays refreshing the whole time you have one in.

Rating and Final Thoughts

After trying this one, I'm even more bummed I didn't end up finishing the one I started making.  It's that good.  But, if anyone was going to get this flavor right - it's Swedish Match.  This one definitely earned it's 3.54/5 rating.  The cucumber lime flavor works really well in a pouch, and comes across in a beautiful, fresh way.  I don't use a lot of nicotine pouches myself, but this is one I'll definitely be buying more of.  And, I suggest anyone try it out who likes citrus flavors, or the taste of cucumber!

  1. Fantastic review Snubie, now I’m even more excited to get my order in and add on to the 1 can i had initially selected. Much less concerned I’d be wasting money if I only added 1 can. Now I can definitely bump that up. Thanks Snubie! Har det så bra

    1. Thanks! You won't regret this purchase, it's a really good product. A nice flavor, for sure. Swedish Match nailed it.
