Epok (Easy Mint) - Review. 8 May 2020.

I recently got ahold of some Epok products that are sold in Switzerland, and today we're going to be doing a review of Epok (Easy Mint)!  This one may sound familiar.  Back in February of 2020 I reviewed Lyft Easy Mint, which was basically a nicotine pouch version of this one.  The flavor description for this one says it has an, "easy mint taste".  Each can weighs 16.8g and has 24 portions, for 0.7g portions.  The nicotine content on this one is lower than your average product, clocking in at 6mg/g (0.6%), or 4.2mg/portion.

Now, there's a lot of terms out there for the "all white" category, such as "nicotine pouches", and "white tobacco".  This can get confusing!  Looking at this photo, Lyft and Epok don't look that much different.  However, I wanted to differentiate.  Lyft is a nicotine pouch product, meaning it doesn't contain tobacco.  Epok actually contains white tobacco.  This is how they describe it's production:  "Before the treatment, the carefully selected brown tobacco is prepared.  In the next step tobacco is treated through a washing process in order to obtain white tobacco.  This process lasts until the brown tobacco is completely cleaned into white tobacco.  When the tobacco has its all white color, it’s refined with different and fresh flavors."  So, while they may look similar, they are quite different.

When you open the can, a sweet, smooth smell of mint comes through. It reminds me a lot of spearmint.  The portions are slim, soft, and comfortable in the lip!  It also comes with a nice cooling presence when you put one under your lip.  The flavor is on the sweeter side than most mint products.  It's a gentle, smooth taste of spearmint.  The taste generally lasts up to around 45 minutes, on average.  The nicotine strength feels a little less strong than your regular strength product, but not super weak or anything.  As far as this one goes, I like it.  It's got a really nice, sweet, fresh mint flavor.  If you don't like sweeter products, you may not dig it.  But if you want a mint snus with a sweet, fresh flavor - you may love it!
