    Introduction to Ace

    Meet Ace nicotine pouches, your new favourite brand straight from the heart of Denmark via the Ministry of Snus! Ace’s brand focuses on offering pouches that vary in terms of both flavour and nicotine strength. On top of that, Ace is doing the planet a solid with its 100% recyclable packaging. Ace is more than just a nicotine pouch; it's a sleek, smooth Danish vibe.


    Understanding that one size does not fit all, Ace nicotine pouches cater to a wide variety of audiences in terms of both strengths and flavour. Seriously, Ace has carefully designed these pouches to suit any kind of day, whether it's a peaceful spring outing or a gloomy afternoon in autumn.


    The pouches are delicate and have a greater mouthfeel than some other brands, all but guaranteeing you’ll have a pleasant sensation in your mouth. To make matters even better, Ace nicotine pouches last upwards of 30 minutes once you’ve popped them under your lip!

    Ace Nicotine Pouches – Look & Feel

    The canisters that house Ace nicotine pouches are a dream to carry around. Weighing in at a mere 29.6g, they are the epitome of convenience. Just slip one of these beauties into your purse or back pocket, and you'll barely notice it's there!


    While we’re at it, let us take a moment to appreciate the sheer beauty of these canisters. The design is absolutely stunning, with a ski lodge chic aesthetic that makes you want to wrap up in a cosy sweater and hit the slopes.


    And the colours on these canisters are not merely for show—they’re a nod to the delicious and eclectic flavours that await you inside. For example, yellowish-green colouring represents Green Lemon, a simple Blue represents Cool Mint, and a vibrant pink and black combination represents Black Raspberry Chili. Ace truly makes things intuitive for you!

    Ace Nicotine Pouches

    Ace nicotine pouches are like little ninjas of flavour hiding under your lip. They are so stealthy and discreet that you'll forget they're there. On top of that, these pouches are as light as a feather, snugly fitting under your lip without anyone being the wiser.


    Each canister comes with a whopping 20 pouches, a number that aligns with industry standards. In this regard, Ace certainly doesn’t cut any corners.

    Ace Flavours: What's Available and What's Good?

    Ace nicotine pouches have totally knocked it out of the park in terms of flavour offerings, sporting a solid range that's larger than many out there. With 10 delectable choices, Ace truly offers a veritable smorgasbord of taste sensations. Whether you're a fruity aficionado, a citrus lover, or a mint purist, there's something in Ace's arsenal for every palate!


    For instance, Berry Breeze is like summer in a pouch. Imagine basking in the sun as a gentle breeze wafts over you and delivers the sweet aroma of mixed berries. This flavour is all about that blissful, laid-back vibe, perfect for those who love their fruity kick with a side of chill!


    Then there’s Eucalyptus. Picture this: a refreshing walk through a eucalyptus forest, the air crisp and invigorating. Every pouch literally feels like a breath of fresh air. If your everyday routine is in need of a little pick-me-up, Ace Eucalyptus might just be the answer.


    Next up, there’s X Cool Mint, part of Ace’s X Superwhite sub-brand. This flavour is a true Arctic blast of mintiness that will knock your socks off. For those days when you need that extra kick to leap into action, X Cool Mint is your superhero in a pouch.


    And that’s only three of the several flavours of Ace nicotine pouches that you can purchase from Two Wombats! Keep reading to learn more about the specific tasting notes in each Ace flavour!

    Stephen's Review of Ace

    Overall: This little slice of Denmark was quite nice in many regards. I’m always happy to see a brand that offers light and medium choices, so those nicotine strengths sure hit the spot. The branding is pretty neat, too. I’m a skier, and the colouring and design made me want to run out and hit the slopes. Overall, Ace impressed me!

    Pros:
    1. Very nice selection of nicotine flavours!
    2. The mint options were particularly grand. I don’t always love mint, but I did today.
    3. As I said, the design of the canisters is lovely. 

    Cons:
    1. I would’ve liked more fruit-forward flavours. The Berry Breeze was incredible … Can I get some more of that?

    Scoring:

    Taste: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5

    Flavour Range: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Nicotine Strength: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5

    Design: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Overall: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4.5/5


    James' Review of Ace

    Overall: Overall, Ace impressed me. Anytime I see a citrus-forward nicotine pouch, the brand will grab my attention. But with Ace, it was more than just the citrus. All of the flavours were quite good—the mint ones especially—and the nicotine strength options were decent too. One thing I will definitely say, though, is that they could offer more flavours in their 13mg and 16mg formats.

    Pros:
    1. Absolutely loved the Green Lemon flavour. Like, I’m in love.
    2. The mint flavours were also quite fantastic.
    3. Their stronger nicotine options pack a pretty decent punch.

    Cons:
    1. Need more variety in terms of their 13mg and 16mg options.
    2. The branding didn’t do a ton for me. I guess it felt a tad plain.

    Scoring:

    Taste: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Flavour Range: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Nicotine Strength: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Design: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Overall: ⭐⭐⭐ 3.5/5


    Clare's Review of Ace

    Overall: Like I’m not going to love Ace! Mint galore? Yup! Lighter nicotine strengths? Yup! I’m pretty sure this brand had your gal (me!) in mind when they went into the lab and started concocting flavours. The one downside (I guess) would be that the branding/design didn’t totally blow me away. But I can even get over the lacklustre branding when I think of the fact that they use 100% recyclable plastic!

    Pros:
    1. They’re eco-conscious! That matters to me.
    2. The mint options are superb.
    3. The nicotine options are ALSO superb.

    Cons:
    1. The design of the canisters doesn’t totally do it for me! I don’t know why. I think the cans just look slightly plain. 

    Scoring:


    Taste: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5

    Flavour Range: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Nicotine Strength: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5

    Design: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Overall: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4.3/5

    James: I wasn't expecting to enjoy this a ton, but I ended up liking it. It wasn’t too sweet for me. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    Clare: Delightful! Like munching on the freshest berries in the deep of summer. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Ace Cool Mint Flavour


    Stephen: Cool Mint is nice but doesn't quite hit the spot for me! However, it's refreshingly straightforward. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    James: This was very solid. The mint is super fresh tasting and cooled me down a ton. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Clare: Absolutely loved it! The Cool Mint is exactly what I look for in a nicotine pouch. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Ace Eucalyptus Flavour


    Stephen: This was super nice and herbal! I felt like I was walking through a fresh meadow on a summer day. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    James: So refreshing. The eucalyptus had a nice, subtle, citrusy undertone, too. I like complex flavours like this. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Clare: It was minty in a different way, which I found intriguing! Not my top option in terms of mint, but I still really liked it. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 3.7/5

    Ace Extreme Cool Flavour


    Stephen: Too minty for my taste! But if you're into that, it's definitely quite refreshing. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    James: Amongst the mint options they offer, this one was probably my least favourite. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    Clare: Another absolutely exhilarating mint experience! I feel like a cool wind has just swept over me! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 3.7/5

    Ace Green Lemon Flavour


    Stephen: The Green Lemon was a wonderful surprise! It's fruity and has a lovely tangy kick. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    James: Incredible. Don’t have much else to say. It’s got a touch of sweetness to it that compliments the citrus perfectly. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    Clare: Super lovely! One of the better citrus flavours I’ve come across. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4.3/5

    Ace Guarana Chili Boost Flavour


    Stephen: The fruit chills out the spice. But it still wasn’t one of my favourite flavours. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    James: Whoo! There’s an exciting kick in here that I enjoyed. Sadly, the guarana didn't add much for me. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    Clare: Definitely a thrilling experience! I found the spice pretty overwhelming, though. If you don’t handle space well, perhaps opt for something else. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Ace Liquorice Mint Flavour


    Stephen: Not a fan of liquorice, but the mix with mint was bearable! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    James: Plain and simple: This was an unusual combination that didn't quite hit the mark for me. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    Clare: Liquorice flavours can be super hit or miss for me, but this one blended really well with the mint! Bravo, Ace. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3.3/5

    Ace X Black Raspberry Chilli Flavour


    Stephen: This one is amazing! It’s got the fruitiness of raspberry with a chilli kick. So perfect! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    James: Didn’t expect to like this as much as I did. The raspberry and spice complement each other so well. Now I want a spice-forward dessert! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Clare: Delectable. Unlike many of the flavours out there that I’ve tried! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4.3/5

    Ace X Cool Mint Flavour


    Stephen: I enjoyed this quite a bit! I will say this though: Ace’s mint flavours all taste quite similar to me. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    James: Very nice and invigorating. Ace definitely packs a wintery punch with this one. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Clare: Another winner for me. No surprise there! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Ace X Cosmic Cool Mint Flavour


    Stephen: Again, mint dominates. I can’t really differentiate between this and the regular Cool Mint. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    James: Just like the Cool Mint but with stronger nicotine. Naturally, I liked the nicotine boost a fair deal. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Clare: I prefer the regular Cool Mint simply because it has less nicotine in it! The flavours are very similar, if not identical. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 3.7/5
