    Introduction to Pablo Nicotine Pouches

    Popping Pablo nicotine pouches under your lip is akin to strapping yourself into the cockpit of a supersonic jet. As the audacious sister to Killa and a fearless brand concocted by the daring minds over at N.G.P. Tobacco, Pablo boasts a jaw-dropping 30mg of nicotine per pouch. These pouches are made specifically for seasoned veterans of the pouch scene!


    But what makes Pablo nicotine pouches unique? For starters, the brand is extremely committed to keeping things as environmentally pure as Mother Earth intended. By using clean ingredients and natural oils for flavours, these pouches provide one of the cleanest nicotine experiences you can find on the market today!


    On top of that, Pablo is one of the few brands to hail from Denmark (alongside Killa), making it a Scandinavian showstopper! Every pouch is like a little nod to Danish purity and grassy, farm-laden landscapes.


    As we mentioned earlier, Pablo is also unique because it offers some of the absolute strongest nicotine options on the market. These pouches are designed for all the veterans the pouch aficionados out there. If you're looking for a big kick of nicotine, Pablo nicotine pouches are for you!


    Finally, canisters of Pablo nicotine pouches offer one of the coolest, most unique designs on the market. Speaking of which …

    Pablo Nicotine Pouches – Look & Feel

    Ah, Pablo nicotine pouches! These little treasures come housed in containers that are a true visual treat. There are two types of can designs, and they're about as different as night and day.


    First up, we have the classic low-key design. These canisters come dressed in a stunning white, sporting bold, comic-book-style red lettering. This design is simple, sleek, and exudes an air of confidence. On the other side of the spectrum, there’s the wild child of the duo. These gold canisters are audaciously adorned with an image that looks strikingly similar to Pablo Escobar himself! In this sense, Pablo really leans into its bad boy persona.


    Whether you're feeling elegant and sophisticated or bold and daring, there's a Pablo canister to suit your mood. And the best part? These lightweight champions are perfect for all your on-the-go adventures. Pop one in your pocket or your tote, and you’re ready to roll!

    Pablo Nicotine Pouches

    Now, let's explore Pablo nicotine pouches themselves! Each pouch weighs either 0.3g or 0.8g depending on the format you buy, making the lighter of those options some of the most feathery pouches on the market! These pouches are truly potent in terms of nicotine—perfect for all the pouch masters out there. Best of all, you can pop one under your lip no matter where you happen to be.


    Pablo nicotine pouches come in two different formats: the Slim and the XXL. Slim canisters come with 20 pouches, whereas XXL canisters come with a whopping 30 of these bad boys! (Note that only the Ice Mint XXL option comes in the XXL format.)

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

    With such an amazing flavour range, Pablo nicotine pouches certainly know how to tantalise those taste buds! Seriously, Pablo offers a whopping 15 flavours to choose from on the Two Wombats website. (Several of these flavours share a delicious kinship with the offerings from Pablo’s sister brand, Killa.)


    Now, hold onto your hats, because we’re about to dive into a few of these flavour-filled adventures. First up, we have Pablo Grape Ice, which is like a frosty grape popsicle on a hot summer day. Then there’s Pablo Kiwi, which is vibrant, tropical, and so incredibly juicy.


    Moving on, Pablo Ice Mint is your go-to for a blast of arctic freshness. It’ll leave you feeling as though you've just sprinted across the North Pole! Finally, there’s the renowned Pablo Strawberry Cheesecake. This flavour is like a slice of dessert heaven—creamy, dreamy, and packed full of strawberry flavour.


    Each flavour promises an unforgettable ride, making it hard to pick a favourite. Whether you’re in the mood for something frosty, fruity, or dessert-like, Pablo’s got your back!

    the range of flavours available

    Performance: Do Pablo Nicotine Pouches Hit the Spot?

    Just how strong are Pablo’s offerings? Well, the brand has two different strength options: 24mg per pouch and 30mg per pouch. For comparison’s sake, the brand ONX offers strength formats that are mostly 3mg and 6mg per pouch. So, yeah, you’re in for a wild ride with Pablo nicotine pouches!


    Both the 24mg and 30mg options come in Pablo’s Slim format. Pablo also has an XXL format, which comes with a whopping 30 pouches each clocking in at 24mg of nicotine per pouch. (However, only the Ice Cold XXL flavour comes in this format.) Unlike many other brands out there, Pablo does not appear to follow any sort of Dot system.


    Still confused? Here’s a quick and simple breakdown to provide more information on Pablo’s formats:


    Slim → 24mg or 30mg of nicotine per pouch

    XXL → 24mg of nicotine per pouch

    Pablo Overall

    Pablo nicotine pouches are no joke. Seriously, these pouches are for the truest of pouch veterans—those of us who can handle an intense hit of nicotine. I absolutely would not recommend these pouches for beginners, as the nicotine content would likely overwhelm them. As for Pablo’s flavour range? It’s pretty top-notch. With delightful options like Pear, Strawberry Cheesecake, Frosted Ice, and Ice Cold, there appears to be a true plethora of options for both mint lovers and fruit lovers!


    Now, before we dive into some reviews from our taste testers, here is how I would rate Pablo nicotine pouches:


    Taste: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Flavour Range: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Nicotine Strength: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Design: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Overall: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Stephen's Review of Pablo Nicotine Pouches

    Overall: From what I’ve heard, Pablo is the sister brand to Killa. I’m a big fan of Killa, and you can tell a lot of the flavours are similar here with Pablo. (For instance, the Strawberry Cheesecake and Strawberry Lychee are flavours that both brands offer!) I’m definitely a fan of these flavours, as many of them are fruity and delicious. But I will say that I lean slightly towards Killa over Pablo. The main reason is the nicotine strength. The strengths on offer at Pablo are simply too strong.

    Pros:
    1. Pablo has a very lovely flavour range if you’re into fruit-forward or mint-forward flavours!
    2. The design of the canisters is quite flashy. Especially the ones with Escobar on them.
    3. I read somewhere that all the flavours use natural oils. I like that!

    Cons:
    1. The flavour range is lacking some of what Killa offers.

    2. The nicotine strengths are way too strong! You’ve got to be a real lover of intense nicotine sensations to love these.

    Scoring:


    Taste: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Flavour Range: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Nicotine Strength: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Design: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Overall: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 3.7/5

    James' Review of Pablo Nicotine Pouches

    Overall: I’ll come right out and say it: I love any brand that has nicotine pouches that are this strong. Am I upset they don’t have a citrus option? Of course. Do I think some of Killa’s fruit options are a tad too sweet? Absolutely. But the nicotine strength in these pouches is seriously unmatched. It’s the exact rush I’m looking for. And how could you not love the canisters?

    Pros:
    1. Solid flavour range. They have great minty options and a few fruity options that are subtle.
    2. Those nicotine strengths … I mean, come on. The lads love Pablo.
    3. Got to give a shout-out to the canisters as well. They’re super flashy in the best way.

    Cons:
    1. Seriously, why is there no citrus? I don’t get it.
    2. Some of the fruity options are incredibly sweet. Tone it down a little, Pablo!

    Scoring:

    Taste: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Flavour Range: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Nicotine Strength: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5

    Design: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5

    Overall: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Clare's Review of Pablo Nicotine Pouches

    Overall: Pablo is a super conflicting brand for me! Like, I love their minty options. They are so delicious, and the same goes for many of Pablo’s fruity options. But I also really do not enjoy their nicotine strengths! 30mg? I can’t handle that sort of hit! My body is simply not made for it. I think I’d take Killa over Pablo any day of the week purely because of the nicotine. (And Killa is pretty strong too!)

    Pros:
    1. Love the minty flavours! They are divine.
    2. Same goes for a bunch of Pablo’s fruity flavours. They are super tasty!

    Cons:
    1. Uhh. The nicotine strength options are sort of wild? Not in a good way.
    2. I also don’t love the design of the canisters. 

    Scoring:


    Taste: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Flavour Range: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Nicotine Strength: ⭐⭐ 2/5

    Design: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Overall: ⭐⭐⭐ 3.3/5

    Pablo Nicotine Pouches Product Taste Test:

    Pablo Banana Ice


    Stephen: Very creamy and delicious. I like that the mint flavour is subtle and does not overwhelm the general vibe of the pouch! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    James: Quite nice, actually. It surprised me a bit and reminded me of a banana smoothie. I think it’s a touch too sweet though. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    Clare: Mmmmm. It’s just like Killa’s Banana Ice variety. Absolutely fantastic. I’m taking one star away though because of the nicotine strength! (I promise I’ll judge the flavours fairly the rest of the way, but I had to let my disapproval of the nicotine options be known one last time!) Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 3.7/5

    Pablo Bubblegum


    Stephen: The nostalgia factor is on point, but I didn’t love the flavour overall. There’s too much going on. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    James: It’s very sweet. Too sweet. I’ll leave it at that. Rating: ⭐⭐ 2/5


    Clare: Surprisingly enjoyable, although my preferences typically lean towards something more refreshing. I would’ve liked it more if it was less sweet. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 2.7/5

    Pablo Frosted Ice


    Stephen: The mint in here is quite nice. It’s not overpowering or anything. It’s also slightly sweet! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    James: Delightful. If they paired this with some citrus flavour, Pablo would have an absolute knockout on their hands. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Clare: Pablo Frosted Ice is oh-so-lovely. It’s got just the right amount of mint in it. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4.3/5

    Pablo Frosted Mint


    Stephen: Frosty, indeed. This has quite a serious punch of mint to it, more so than the Frosted Ice. It was okay! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    James: Frosted Mint + 30mg of nicotine? Yes. This is an absolute delight. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    Clare: This is such an easy winner! It’s blissfully wintery and minty! The flavour honestly makes me feel like I’m making snow angels on the ground. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4.3/5

    Pablo Grape Ice


    Stephen: A true delight. The grape flavour absolutely bursts in your mouth. It’s so cool to see a brand capture the essence of purple grapes like this. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    James: Not too sweet, not incredibly minty. Pablo Grape Ice finds a pretty nice balance between the two flavours! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Clare: This flavour is a true knockout! Juicy goodness? Yup! A minty blast? Yup! An easy winner in my books. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4.7/5

    Pablo Ice Cold


    Stephen: I’m admittedly not the biggest mint guy, but the Ice Cold is solid. It’s got some complexity to it that I wasn’t expecting. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    James: Very nice. It’s super herbal and there’s a nice long, lingering cooling effect that stays on your tongue. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Clare: Fantastic! So far I’ve loved all of the Pablo mint varieties. (No surprise there!) This one is delightfully herbal. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4.3/5

    Pablo Ice Cold XXL


    Stephen: Pretty much exactly like the Ice Cool. So, I liked it! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    James: Is there a difference between this and the regular Ice Cool? If so, I honestly couldn’t tell. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Clare: Just as good as the Ice Cool from Pablo! Super minty and super delicious once again. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 3.7/5

    Pablo Kiwi


    Stephen: Reminded me a lot of Killa’s Kiwi flavour. It’s super zingy and tastes exactly like the kiwi fruit. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    James: There’s a nice tang to it, but it’s also pretty darn sweet. Not sure I’d go for it again. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    Clare: Pablo Kiwi has a delightful little tang to it! I enjoyed it, but I think it would throw some people off. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Pablo Mango Ice


    Stephen: Pablo Mango Ice, like Killa Mango Ice, is fantastic. It’s fruity and tropical and slightly refreshing all at once. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    James: It’s too sweet. Like, sweeter than a literal mango. I do enjoy the cooling after-effects though. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    Clare: Reminds me so much of Killa’s Mango Ice variety. It’s a perfect combination of sweet and mint! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Pablo Passion Fruit


    Stephen: This has the exotic flair I've been looking for. It’s honestly bursting with fruity goodness. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    James: I prefer this to the Mango Ice, but it’s still very much on the sweet side. I will say this: It has a nice tartness to it. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    Clare: Yum! I haven’t had passion fruit in a long time. This hit the spot and transported me to some sort of tropical place! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 3.7/5

    Pablo Pear


    Stephen: This flavour is light and very crisp. Honestly, it tasted just like a ripe pear. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    James: I think I mentioned in our Killa reviews that pear is my favourite fruit. So, surprise, surprise, I love this flavour. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    Clare: Super light flavour! It’s mellow and packs just the right amount of sweetness. It’s also kind of buttery, which I wasn’t expecting. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4.3/5

    Pablo Red


    Stephen: I think this flavour threw me off a bit. I was expecting something fruity, but it’s a pure mint blast. Rating: ⭐⭐ 2/5


    James: Very nice! It’s fruity, slightly herbal, and even has a bit of subtle spice to it. Definitely would buy this. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Clare: An enjoyable experience with a minty twist! It was quite a delight. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3.3/5

    Pablo Strawberry Cheesecake


    Stephen: What a fantastic concoction of strawberry and cheesecake. They nailed the creaminess of it. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    James: Ah, no. Like Killa’s variety of the very same flavour, this was like a sweet punch to the face. Way too sweet. Rating: ⭐⭐ 2/5


    Clare: I can’t believe how yummy this was. It’s honestly like a dessert in a pouch. The strawberry really shines. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3.3/5

    Pablo Strawberry Lychee


    Stephen: I’ll say the same thing I said for Killa’s variety of this flavour: It’s A+. This is honestly a berry lover’s dream. And the lychee adds such a light and delicious touch. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    James: The lychee takes things up a level compared to the Strawberry Cheesecake. I enjoyed it, but it’s ultimately still too sweet. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    Clare: Really delightful. Honest question: Why don’t we make more things lychee-flavoured? Lychee is so good! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Pablo X-Ice Cold


    Stephen: Ice cold, indeed! Too cold. Hah. I feel like my tongue is frozen after this flavour. Rating: ⭐⭐ 2/5


    James: I’ll go on record saying this is the best of all Pablo’s mint flavours. It’s seriously refreshing. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    Clare: Perfect level of iciness paired with a hint of mint. Absolutely my favourite of the bunch! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    The Wombat Verdict – The Pablo Range

    Pablo nicotine pouches are designed for pouch lovers who can handle a serious amount of nicotine. This brand is absolutely not recommended for beginners to nicotine pouches. If you can handle such intensity, Pablo has a wide range of delightful flavours that might appeal to you!
