Blue Giant Cool Mint (Nicotine Pouches) - Review. 3 August 2023.

Over the years of reviewing nicotine pouches, I've stumbled across some interesting brands and products from all around the world.  Many I review come from Sweden and the US, but it's fun when I encounter a product that comes from outside my usual review regions.  This is one of those types of products, from a place I don't get to review products from very often!  Today, we're visiting some new products out of China in the new Blue Giant brand!  This new brand has five flavors:  Raspberry, Blueberry, Mango, Lemon, and Cool Mint.  These products are a "pharmaceutical grade nicotine alternative product" which means these are tobacco-free nicotine pouches.  So, let's get to know these pouches and do a review, shall we?

Product Specifics:
Flavor Description:  I couldn't find a "wordy version" online, so we'll just go with what the can says:  cool mint.
Can Contents:  20 pouches
Nicotine Strength:  3 dot (12mg/pouch)
Country of Origin:  China

There's a lot of mint products out there.  So I knew there would be a mint one in this series too.  This one is your pretty standard mint product.  In the aroma, it's a smooth, cool, lightly sweet aroma of peppermint.  The pouches are slim, soft, and semi-dry.  To me, they remind me of Nordic Spirit, or Loop, for example.  They're not super moist, but fit nicely in the lip and are pretty comfortable.  Also, as is common of mint products, this one yields a cooling sensation against the gum.  In the flavor, it's a pretty gentle taste of peppermint.  It's lightly sweet in nature, and is smooth, and balanced.  A pretty refreshing taste!  The nicotine strength feels a little above regular, not too strong, not too weak.  The flavor hangs out a good 45 minutes, on average.

Rating and Final Thoughts

I rated this one at 3.08/5.  To me, mint products aren't that exciting because there's so many of them out there.  But it makes sense that this company would have one.  Everyone does.  They aren't bad though, they're pretty solid.  I didn't have any busted pouches, and no filler material floating around in the can.  So, that's good!  But, all in all, a pretty solid pouch.
