As part of a recent delivery from NicoSmile - it included the 'SWAVE' 'Daiquiri' flavoured nicotine pouches. SWAVE was a brand I've had my eye on for a while now - and it's only quite recently been available in the UK - so I was keen to be able to try these. SWAVE pouches are made on Gotland Island in Sweden.
Water, fillers (E460), plant fiber, humectants (E422), flavorings, acidity regulators (E500, E509), salt, nicotine, emulsifiers (E471), sweeteners (E954).
I'll be reviewing the 'Daiquiri' flavour - but they also offer a 'Tropic Spritz' which is more of a pineapple type deal.
An all white product made in Sweden. Flavour of the drink Strawberry daiquiri, melon and pear.
The first thing you've notice about these nicotine pouches is the extremely pungent aroma when you open the can! The pouches have a distinct daiquiri smell - with strong tones of melon and pear easily noticeable. There is a slight sting to the smell - but it remains appealing nonetheless.
The can is pretty cool design wise - with a waste disposal lid on the top as you'd expect. Ingredients are marked clearly on the back of the can - and it's made out of recyclable plastic.
The pouches are extremely soft to the pouch slim format - perhaps a little wider than some - but sit nicely in the mouth and don't cause any irritation. The taste and nicotine sensation are almost immediate - and whilst not as strong as its aroma - the taste is crisp and clear. The fruit flavours come across much clearer than the smell - and the melon and pear and clearly noticeable.
At 10mg/g in strength these pouches would be great for a beginner as the sweet flavour is likely to appeal to most. The taste didn't quite live up to the vivid aroma for me - and they're not pouches I'd use every day - but are a great fruity treat in a well-made pouch.
