The market for nicotine pouches is exploding, thanks to the smoke-, spit-, and tobacco-free experience they offer users. In addition to being discreet and easy to use, their popularity can also be attributed to the wide variety of great tasting flavors that are available. Ranging from traditional tobacco flavors to exotic berry flavors, there is a nicotine pouch for almost every preference and palate. If you have never used nicotine pouches before, here is a guide to the different types of flavors you can expect to find:
Menthol is a soothing flavor derived from mint plants, like peppermint and spearmint, and has enjoyed sustained popularity in tobacco products for many years. It is considered an essential part to any tobacco flavor. Menthol achieves a “cooling” effect by tricking your brain into thinking it is consuming something cold. Peppermint is the strongest mint in the mint family and is described as “spicier” than spearmint, which boasts a mellower flavor. Wintergreen, on the other hand, is a flavor comprised of various aromatic plants, with a taste profile that varies. With both a pleasantly minty taste and aroma, it is no wonder menthol and mints have enjoyed popularity in nicotine pouches, where flavor varieties abound. The brand ZYN offers five mint/menthol options alone: Cool Mint, Peppermint, Spearmint, Wintergreen and Menthol.
Even though nicotine pouches are tobacco-free, many brands offer the same sweet and slightly spicy taste of tobacco products—but with the added bonus of no spitting and staining.

For those that crave a sour tang, citrus nicotine pouches hit the spot.
