V&YOU offer two ranges of nicotine pouch - each in a range of flavours. ‘&FOCUS’ has 6mg of nicotine per portion compared to the ‘&BOOST’ range which has 10mg per pouch.
Both ranges come in flavours; citrus, berry, mint and ‘air’ which is an interesting concept… it’s a flavour free nicotine pouch… so I’ll let you know what I think about that when I get to it!
Today I’ll be looking at the ‘&FOCUS’ Citrus flavour nicotine pouch -
Starting with the can - the V&YOU pouches come in brightly coloured cans with your usual disposal lid - and layout nicotine content, flavour and usage instructions clearly on the packaging.
Opening up the can itself and there is a strong smell of lemons - the sort of citrus I’m a fan of - and there’s just a hint of orange.
The pouches themselves are remarkably soft and stand out against some brands as being comfortable sat between the lip and gum. I say that for a lot of pouches - but these are a little different.
Now onto taste… and this is an interesting one. For that first 10 - 15 minutes you get the usual tingling sensation in your gums - and whilst there’s a distinct flavour - there’s also a frosty feeling reminiscent of mint flavoured nicopods. It’s a refreshing experience and does lean into my personal tastes.
It’s a nice dry pouch made to a high quality and the flavour is strong, sharp and long lasting. I’m going to hold my final judgment until I’ve tried the entire range - but the V&YOU products are certainly interesting and I'm looking forward to working my way through!
