New ZYN Flavors We Would Like to See in the US


While the current selection of ZYNs gives plenty of options and there are many choices globally - there is always space for new flavors! But what do we want to see? We break down the top 5 new ZYN flavors we want to see hit the shelves.

  • Vanilla. Quite a humble and often overlooked flavor, it adds a nice gentle, smooth yet sweet flavor. Each type of vanilla gives some form of woody, floral or even spicy flavor note: ideal to compliment your nicotine experience!
  • Jalapeno. Move over menthol, there’s a new kicker in town! ZYN are known for their balanced citrus flavors, and adding some Jalepeno flavor to a citrus pouch would give you a real kick to your nicotine experience. Juicy citrus with a jalapeno kick? Sign us up!
  • Berry. Who doesn’t love a summer berry? Whether it is strawberry,  raspberry or blueberry - there are so many berries to give the sweet tooth ZYN lovers a new ZYN flavor they could only dream of. 
  • Soda. Lemonade, Cola, Root Beer…. The list of sodas could go on. Creating a soda flavored ZYN would give that comforting, familiar flavor to enhance your nicotine experience. 
  • Bergamot. Might seem like an odd choice, but bergamot is another classic pouch flavor we’d like to see. Known for creating the signature flavors of Earl Grey as well as snus, it is very  aromatic and balances out your ZYN experience with a tart, acidic and spicy flavor.
