Lyft Nicotine Pouches: Mint - Review. 4 February 2019.

The nicotine pouch category has been growing more and more for the past few years, and now it appears as though BAT/Winnington (makers of Epok) are getting into this category with their new Lyft product! Lyft is a nicotine pouch product that is made from eucalyptus and pine fiber. Lyft does not contain tobacco, but does contain nicotine. Lyft comes in all the same flavors as Epok, so if you're wanting to switch from Epok (which contains tobacco) to Lyft (which doesn't contain tobacco), you will be easily able to find your favorite flavor.

Today, we're talking about Lyft Mint.  The flavor description says Lyft Mint has "a full-bodied sweetness from the spearmint perfectly combined with a cool freshness from menthol."  This product comes in a 16.8 gram can with 24 portions for 0.7 gram portions. The nicotine content is 8.5mg/g (0.85%) for 5.95mg/portion.  Note, this is the same as Epok Mint in terms of contents and nicotine level.

I won't go too in depth on the differences between Epok and Lyft, but if you want to know more, I wrote an article about it, and I also did a video about it.  But here's a photo just so you can see it real quick.  You'll notice the cans look similar except the name, the portions look similar, and even the material inside the pouch looks similar.  The way the pouches feel in the lip, the way the nicotine releases, and even the flavors are all very similar as well.  So if you like Epok, you'll probably also really like Lyft.

If you've had Epok Mint, I'll say this - this product seems quite close to Epok Mint but with a few small differences.  I was really impressed with that. The is a very fresh smell that seems to be a mix of spearmint and peppermint.  I notice spearmint up front, but with a light tone of peppermint in the background. The portions are slim, soft, and feel very comfortable in the lip.  Being a mint product, you get a nice cooling presence in the lip.  This one has a little burn to it as well, which I don't notice with Epok Mint.  The flavor is pretty well balanced and seems a little more smooth than Epok Mint.  The taste is a mix of spearmint and peppermint, but with a touch more spearmint.  There's also a light touch of sweetness, but it isn't overdone!  The nicotine strength feels to be about the regular level. The flavor, on average, lasts about 45 to 55 minutes.  I enjoyed this one more than Epok Mint, to be honest.

I enjoy tobacco and don't plan on ever switching to nicotine pouches, but I will say this - these are some of the best nicotine pouches I've tried yet.  I think BAT/Winnington did a great job with these!
