    Introduction to LYFT

    Embark on a journey into the realm of LYFT nicotine pouches, where Swedish ingenuity meets everyday relaxation! Owned by the industry leaders at British American Tobacco, LYFT focuses on infusing a Swedish vibe into your lifestyle. LYFT nicotine pouches cater to all—whether you're a seasoned connoisseur or simply curious, the brand has got you covered. Seize them while you can, as LYFT nicotine pouches are currently transitioning to the VELO brand!


    Weighing in at a mere 0.7g per pouch, LYFT nicotine pouches are as lightweight as can be. Designed to fit discreetly under your lip, these pouches provide a flavourful experience without drawing attention. Whether you're an enthusiast or new to nicotine products, LYFT offers a sophisticated way to enjoy nicotine without any smoke and mirrors!


    What truly sets LYFT nicotine pouches apart is the brand’s rooted connection to Mother Nature. Crafted with plant-based fibres straight from Scandinavian forests, these pouches are a tip of the hat to environmentally friendly practices. With LYFT, you can harness the natural goodness of Nordic pine trees and eucalyptus plants!


    And if variety is the spice of your life, LYFT nicotine pouches have got your back with a veritable smorgasbord of flavours and strengths. From the zesty kick of Citrus Mint to the serene bliss of Black Currant, there’s a pouch to suit every mood and moment. And with a range of strengths, LYFT makes it easy for you to find your sweet spot.

    LYFT Nicotine Pouches – Look & Feel

    Now, onto the canisters that house LYFT nicotine pouches! These little containers are about as un-flashy as they come, weighing a mere 32.2g. On top of that, LYFT went the extra mile to ensure the packaging is as clean and pure as Scandinavian nature. No glitz, no glamour—just wonderfully simple and airy cans!


    On top of that, the lettering on each canister offers a sneak peek into the flavour that awaits you. Cucumber Mint? Boom, green lettering. Black Currant? Purple it is! This little touch makes for a very intuitive process when it comes to choosing the flavour you desire.

    LYFT Nicotine Pouches

    Diving into the world of LYFT nicotine pouches is like discovering the lightweight champion of the nicotine universe. Each pouch tips the scales at a mere 0.7g—the epitome of featherlight. In fact, they're so discreet and snug that you'll forget there's a little pouch of bliss tucked neatly under your lip!


    Best of all, LYFT canisters come packed with a whopping 24 pouches, a number that exceeds industry standards. (Note that the Mini format comes with only 20 pouches.) It's like LYFT knew you'd want to savour the moment a tad longer and made sure you wouldn't run out anytime soon!

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

    LYFT nicotine pouches offer flavours that are as light and breezy as a spring day in the Swedish countryside. No heavy, dragging tastes here—just pure, refreshing experiences that dance on your palate.


    First up is Black Currant . Rich, dark, and bursting with sweetness, this flavour is a classic with a sophisticated twist. With such a delectably sweet taste, fruit lovers are all but guaranteed to love it!


    Next up, we have Citrus Mint , perfect for those seeking a mix of two classic flavours. Imagine zesty lemons and limes doing the tango with cool, crisp mint. It’s a refreshing splash of invigoration that will keep things zingy.


    And then there’s the soothing Eucalyptus Honey . This one’s like a warm hug for your insides. The soothing touch of eucalyptus paired with the sweet caress of honey is truly as comforting as it gets!


    Guess what? That’s only three of the several flavours of LYFT nicotine pouches that you can purchase from Two Wombats! Keep reading to learn more about the specific tasting notes in each LYFT flavour.

    Performance: Does LYFT Hit the Spot?

    Variety is essential in life, right? That’s why LYFT nicotine pouches offer you a diverse experience that includes both subtle and intense strengths.


    Whether you are new to nicotine pouches or seeking a potent sensation, LYFT has the right options for you. The brand starts at a subtle 6mg per pouch and goes all the way up to a more robust 14mg option.


    Moreover, LYFT nicotine pouches use the familiar Dot system, with essentially all canisters coming in a Slim format. (Citrus Mint is the one exception, as it comes in a Mini format.) From the soothing Mini 2/4 Dot (6mg per pouch) to the intense Slim 5/5 Dot (14mg per pouch), LYFT caters to various preferences.


    Still confused? Here’s a quick refresher on the strength levels available in LYFT nicotine pouches:


    Slim 2/4 Dot → 6mg of nicotine per pouch

    Slim 2/5 Dot → 6mg of nicotine per pouch

    Slim 3/5 Dot → 9.8mg of nicotine per pouch

    Slim 4/5 Dot → 10.9mg of nicotine per pouch

    Slim 5/5 Dot → 14mg of nicotine per pouch

    Overall

    If you’re looking for a fresh and invigorating Swedish offering, LYFT nicotine pouches from British American Tobacco have you covered! With four different nicotine strengths and several delightful mint flavours, this brand clearly wanted to offer a little something for everybody. And they certainly succeeded! The only catch? LYFT began transitioning all its products over to the VELO line back in 2022, so you don’t have that much longer to get your hands on the brand’s products!

    Stephen's Review of LYFT

    Overall: What a lovely little Swedish brand LYFT is. I’m sure many are happy to know that all of LYFT’s flavours are transitioning over to VELO, and those flavours on offer sure are tasty! While I certainly would’ve loved more fruit-forward options, I was still impressed by what they did have. The design and nicotine strengths are both very clean and smooth, too.

    Pros:
    1. The design is super sleek. Sometimes you don’t need to make a big fuss over things, and LYFT shows that.
    2. Delightful nicotine strengths.
    3. Special shoutout to the Eucalyptus Honey … never had anything like it!

    Cons:
    1. More fruity/berry-forward flavours would be nice.

    2. Their Dot system is a bit confusing. Are the 2/4 Dot and 2/5 Dot the same strength?

    Scoring:

    Taste: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Flavour Range: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Nicotine Strength: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5

    Design: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Overall: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    James' Review of LYFT

    Overall: Solid brand. I’ve actually already tried a few of their flavours under the VELO brand, which is one of my favourite brands out there. Naturally, I like LYFT quite a bit too. They’ve got really delicious mint-forward, herbal, and citrus flavours that are quite unique in many ways. They could have had more options for their 14mg format, but luckily VELO has more than enough strong nicotine offerings.

    Pros:
    1. Citrus Mint is as good as it gets in terms of flavours.
    2. I love the Eucalyptus offerings as well. They’re so refreshing. It’s nice to see flavours that are so complex.
    3. The design of the canisters is very approachable. My friends have always been a big fan of LYFT for their design.

    Cons:
    1. Would’ve enjoyed more options for their 14mg variety. 

    Scoring:

    Taste: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Flavour Range: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Nicotine Strength: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Design: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Overall: ⭐⭐⭐ 3.7/5


    Clare's Review of LYFT

    Overall: I was so nervous when I heard LYFT was transitioning because they have been one of my favourite brands for a few years now! But then I was overjoyed to hear all those flavours will be available with VELO. The minty options are seriously superb with LYFT. Like, if you enjoy minty goodness, you’re basically guaranteed to fall in love with this brand. The nicotine options are on the milder side too. Perfect for me!

    Pros:
    1. They use real plant fibres from pine and eucalyptus trees! Come on! That’s incredible.
    2. Both the flavour range and the nicotine range with LYFT are lovely.
    3. The design of the cans really captures the essence of the brand.

    Cons:
    1. Uhhhh … I’m struggling to come up with anything here!

    Scoring:


    Taste: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5

    Flavour Range: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5

    Nicotine Strength: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5

    Design: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Overall: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4.7/5

    The Wombat Verdict – The LYFT Range

    LYFT nicotine pouches will soon be a relic of the past. While they’re still around, they offer a delightful range of mint-forward pouches with varying nicotine strengths that you’ll want to get your hands on. On top of that, LYFT buyers can rest easy knowing they are buying from an eco-conscious brand.


    LYFT is so dedicated to environmental sustainability that the brand even uses fibres from Nordic pine trees and eucalyptus plants for its pouches. Talk about being fresh, huh?
