KickUp Real White Soft Mint - Review. 26 June 2016.

Over the past several years, I've had a lot of people ask me to write about nicotine free/tobacco free snus. Granted, these aren't products I use very often, however I felt that I should write about them as they do serve a purpose. For one, there are people who do try to quit snus, but still want to feel a pouch in their lip. For me personally, I use these from time to time at night before bed. If I want to go to sleep and not have any nicotine in my system but still feel a pouch in my lip, I'll throw one of these in. The product description for this product says, "A flavored energy pod with prominent but soft mint character that provides a long lasting enhanced taste experience."

Now, you may be asking, "If these are tobacco free products, what's in the pouch?" Winnington describes it as being "slightly drier and contains cellulose instead of tea. Xylitol is added for sweetness and increased dental health. The pouches also contain vitamins, minerals, ginseng, guarana and antioxidants that protect the body’s cells. The mixture gives the user a pleasant feeling."  You can tell that the material inside the pouch looks a little like Epok Snus, but isn't quite as white.

When I open the can, the aroma that comes through is a very fresh minty smell. It smells of natural mint, but I also notice a hint of peppermint. The pouches are quite soft in the lip, and as soon as you put one in you notice that nice cooling presence/tingling sensation that is common of most mint snus products.  For being a tobacco free product, the taste is actually pretty good.  It is a predominantly natural mint flavor, but I do notice a little bit of peppermint and at times touch of spearmint.  The only time I notice the citrus describes in the flavor profile is after I remove the pouch.  It isn't a very predominant flavor, this one is mostly mint.  It has a nice sweetness to it and a refreshing flavor!  If you're looking to quit snus (which I assume you I am not) or looking for a product at night to use when you don't want to consume nicotine, this is definitely something to consider.  For not having any tobacco or nicotine, it's actually pretty decent!
