Ever wondered why peppermint flavor always has a chilling effect? We can help break down why that’s the case. The menthol that makes up the mint flavor delivers a reaction that causes the mint to feel cold. In other words, the menthol triggers the nerves, sending a message to the brain that you’re eating something cold. All mint products offer a cooling sensation and can sometimes tingle under the lip more than other flavors.
Peppermint is the strongest mint in the mint family. It has an intense, yet sweet and mellow flavor of lemon. With both a pleasantly minty taste and aroma, it is no wonder why mints have enjoyed popularity in nicotine pouches, where flavor varieties abound. For instance, ZYN offers five mint-derived options alone: Cool Mint, Peppermint, Spearmint, Wintergreen and Menthol.
Like spearmint, peppermint is also a fantastic flavor for beginners. After all, it’s rare that someone hasn’t tried peppermint at some point in their lives. In anything you do when just starting out, it’s always easiest to give something a try when it’s familiar to you. A nice thing about peppermint nicotine pouches is that they’re really great to mix with other flavors. For example, say you’re in the mood for a citrus-y flavor—as soon as you add a peppermint nicotine pouch, the flavor is instantly intensified and elevated.
