This is another review from my recent Pods and Pouches buy - you can read my retailer review of them here.
Another review of a Lyft (slowly becoming 'Velo') fruity nicotine pouch - they certainly smell great - and the taste isn't half bad too!
The 'Tropic Breeze' flavour is a fruity, citrus-like taste with a hint of something... tropical! I can't quite put my finger on the exact taste/smell - but it has hints of perhaps banana and mango.
I opted to go for the 'normal' strength tub - which has a nicotine content of 8mg/g. It's certainly on the lower end of the spectrum when it comes to strength in comparison to other brands widely available on the market and is more suited to those people looking to move away from traditional smoking. You'll also find this product under the new brand name 'Velo' in many newsagents and Tesco stores in the UK - making it easy to get hold of without a delivery wait.
However - I ordered mine from Pods and Pouches in the UK - who never disappoint.
Now on to the product itself - as I've mentioned in my other reviews of Lyft / Velo products - the pouches are produced to a high standard of quality and sit very comfortable between the lip and gum without any irritation.
The fruity pouches are similar in taste to other 'citrus' flavours I've tried - but with a little extra something certainly giving it that 'tropical' vibe - it's one of those flavours hard to describe and I'd perhaps compare it to a tropical cocktail or similar.
The taste comes across nicely and the initial tingling sensation in the gums lasts for around 15 minutes - with the flavour easily stretching over 45 minutes to an hour. I'm quite a fan of the lower strength, fruity pouches in the mornings - but it probably won't satisfy those looking for a massive nicotine hit.
These are a great intro nicopod for newcomers to the market (especially at 'normal' strength) - and it's wide availability online and in stores in the UK make it easily accessible as well as being reasonably priced.
This is a great flavour for the summer - and perfect for someone looking for something a little lighter in terms of flavouring and likes to keep the pouch in their mouth for a decent period of time.
