    Introduction to 4NX

    Welcome to the wonderful world of 4NX nicotine pouches, your new top choice on the market! Based in the heart of Manchester, England, 4NX is a modern-day brand here to represent the future of nicotine pouches. The company’s objective? To offer the best mint-forward products around. With an added focus on discretion and coolness, 4NX allows you to embrace a future in which modernity meets convenience.


    Although a newer brand, 4NX already holds a unique position within the nicotine pouch market. There are three key distinguishing features setting the brand apart from its competition.


    Firstly, 4NX is proud to be one of the only, if not the only, nicotine pouch brands based directly in the United Kingdom. The company’s local establishment, located in Manchester, allows it to thoroughly understand and cater to the preferences of both the UK and EU markets.


    Secondly, 4NX breaks the mould by placing a strong emphasis on mint flavours. The brand’s dedication to capturing the essence of refreshing mint in its pouches is truly unparalleled. This emphasis results in an invigorating experience across all 4NX nicotine pouches.


    Lastly, the 4NX brand is synonymous with being cool and modern. 4NX effortlessly embodies a contemporary lifestyle, reflecting innovation, smooth design, and a forward-thinking mentality in every product. With 4NX, customers are adopting a lifestyle that is as fresh and vibrant as the mint flavour the brand infuses in its pouches.

    4NX Nicotine Pouches – Look & Feel

    4NX takes pride in its sleek, minimalistic canister designs, which are sure to capture your attention. The company has intentionally kept the colour palette simple, creating a visual impact that allows its products to stand out without being flashy. 


    Staying with that vibe of simplicity, 4NX injects a splash of colour onto each can’s lettering that reflects the flavours within. This clever detail adds a pop of vibrancy while simultaneously allowing you to identify your desired flavour. 


    In addition to these brilliant features, 4NX cans weigh only 24.5 grams, making them one of the lightest options available on the market.

    4NX Nicotine Pouches

    4NX nicotine pouches are an absolute marvel of functionality. They're super lightweight, designed for maximum comfort when placed under the lip. These pouches will seamlessly fit into your daily routine without any discomfort or inconvenience. You'll hardly even notice they're there—although you'll definitely enjoy the long-lasting effects!


    Each 4NX nicotine pouch is thoughtfully crafted to last upwards of 30 minutes, delivering a sustained release of nicotine to keep you satisfied. That means you can go about your day without constantly having to replace your pouch. To top it off, each 4NX canister comes packed with 20 pouches, which both aligns with industry standards and gives you great bang for your buck!

    4NX Flavours: What's Available and What's Good?

    4NX takes great pride in perfecting a minty essence across its range of flavours. The brand’s main focus is to provide customers with a cool, refreshing experience in every pouch. For instance, 4NX’s Fire and Ice flavour is a tantalising blend of warmth, coolness, and fruity goodness. It’s a delightful contrast that keeps you engaged and fully satisfied.


    The Arctic Mint flavour, on the other hand, pays homage to the raw and invigorating sensation one can only experience in the Arctic. This flavour captures the crispness of polar mint, delivering a blast of freshness that lingers on the tongue.


    Next up, 4NX’s Watermelon Ice is a new twist on the timeless fruitiness and crispness of ripe watermelon. It combines the sweet, juicy notes of watermelon with a hint of icy mint, resulting in a unique taste profile. You’ll truly experience the perfect fusion of fruit and mint with this flavour.


    And guess what? That’s only three of the eight flavours 4NX has to offer. Keep reading to learn more about the specific tasting notes in each 4NX flavour!

    the range of flavours available

    4NX Performance: Does It Hit the Spot?

    4NX offers several Slim format nicotine strengths to cater to the preferences of all pouch enthusiasts. The brand’s collection includes 6mg, 10mg, 12mg, and 18mg nicotine-per-pouch options. This broad selection ensures that both newcomers and experienced users can find a strength that suits their needs. 


    To simplify things, 4NX has implemented the widely-known dot system on its canisters. The number of dots corresponds to the nicotine strength of the pouches inside. This intuitive system, which ranges from a 3/5 Dot option to a 6/5 Dot option, allows users to easily identify their desired strength. On top of that, 4NX even lists the mg-per-pouch amount right on the front of the can! (Please note that most 4NX flavours come in only one format. The lone variety is Mint, which comes in either a Medium 3/5 Dot or Ultra 6/5 Dot format.)


    Here's a little more insight into how the dot system works with the 4NX brand.


    Medium 3/5 Dot Slim → 6mg of nicotine per pouch

    Strong 4/5 Dot Slim → 10mg of nicotine per pouch

    Extra Strong 5/5 Dot Slim → 12mg of nicotine per pouch

    Ultra 6/5 Dot Slim → 18mg of nicotine per pouch

    Overall

    Though 4NX is a newer brand in the industry, the company certainly seems to be on top of its branding and flavours. The mint is there in abundance, and the nicotine strength offerings will cater to both newer and more experienced pouch users.

    Stephen's Review of 4NX

    Overall: 4NX is a super cool brand. They have flavours that, while all minty, fluctuate a good deal. For instance, several flavours had delectable fruity notes. 


    The nicotine strength options they offer are also superb. I haven’t bought a canister of 4NX yet on my own, but I certainly will soon. Feels good to support a local UK brand!

    Pros:
    1. The fruity and minty options are lovely. They do a great job of blending the two flavours together.
    2. The nicotine strength varieties are, for the most part, nice and mild! I loved that. 

    Cons:
    1. The 18mg nicotine strength option was a tad too strong for me. Luckily, it’s only offered in one flavour.

    2. I guess I thought the design was a touch plain. Spruce it up a bit, maybe?

    Scoring:

    Taste: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Flavour Range: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Nicotine Strength: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5

    Design: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Overall: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


     

    James' Review of 4NX

    Overall: 4NX has some huge upsides and downsides. Like, I couldn’t believe they didn’t have a single citrus-forward option. It left me more than disappointed. On the upside, their branding is amazing. I took a brief gander at their Instagram page and loved what I saw. Plus, the minty options were pretty solid.

    Pros:
    1. Really cool branding. Very modern. Very geared towards people who enjoy a night out on the town. (And I love a good night out on the town.)
    2. The flavours are exactly as described.
    3. The 18mg option offers a really solid nicotine hit. 

    Cons:
    1. Where is the citrus? Seriously, 4NX couldn’t offer one citrus option?
    2. Too much mint across the board. Not every flavour needs to be minty.


    Scoring:

    Taste: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Flavour Range: ⭐⭐ 2/5

    Nicotine Strength: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Design: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Overall: ⭐⭐⭐ 3.3/5


     

    Clare's Review of 4NX

    Overall: 4NX is another brand that seems to be catering precisely to me. The mint flavours are absolutely to die for. Mint and the tropics? Check! Mint and berries? Check! Mint on its own? Check! Oh, and I really like the branding too. It’s simple but elegant.

    Pros:
    1. If you love mint, you will LOVE 4NX. I think every flavour had some sort of minty touch to it or was mint-dominant. So good.

    2. Their branding is super-duper clean! Some people will think it’s simple … but I thought it was lovely.

    3. There are nice light and mild options in terms of strength!

    Cons:
    1. The 18mg strength option was too intense for me. (Luckily they also had Mint in a 6mg option!)

    Scoring:


    Taste: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5

    Flavour Range: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5

    Nicotine Strength: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Design: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Overall: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4.5/5

    4NX Product Taste Test:

    4NX Arctic Mint Flavour


    Stephen: Mint on its own is usually not my cup of tea. Still, this flavour was a nice, crisp palate cleanser, albeit a bit strong. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Clare: A beautiful blend of watermelon and mint. One thing is for sure: You’ll feel refreshed after having this pouch. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 3.7/5
