    Skruf Nicotine Pouches - Introduction

    In 2003, dear friends Jonas Engwall and Adam Gillberg hatched a brilliant idea that would revolutionise the nicotine pouch industry. They envisioned creating Skruf Nicotine Pouches—a modern and exceptional product that would set new standards in style, format, and taste. And so, Skruf was born. The product quickly gained popularity, especially in Norway, where its unique blend and laid-back vibe captured the hearts of nicotine pouch enthusiasts.


    In this comprehensive review, we will take an in-depth look at Skruf’s nicotine pouches and provide the information you need to decide if it's the right product for you.

    Skruf Nicotine Pouches – How It Looks & Feels

    Skruf nicotine pouches boast an irresistibly sleek and eye-catching design that's hard to resist! The cans are conveniently colour-coded, allowing users to easily identify flavours. (For instance, mint sports a cool bluish hue, whereas liquorice has a delightful brownish tone.) Its compact size makes Skruf perfect for on-the-go enjoyment. And don't forget the handy catch lid on the cans—after all, Skruf is deeply committed to keeping things clean and tidy! 


    Skruf weighs an average of 17 grams per can. They're also ergonomically designed to fit snugly in your hand and pocket. The artwork is sleek, modern, and minimalist, just like the product it holds. And let's not forget about the nifty 1-to-5 strength gauge, which helps you find your perfect match! 


    The can comes with a whopping 24 pouches, which is more than your average. (Just something to consider when you're crunching the numbers.) One exception: the Frozen Mint Max (currently out of stock), limited to only 20 pouches.

    Skruf Pouches

    Skruf’s pouches themselves are slim and fit comfortably under the lip. Their size and weight (0.72 grams) are crafted for optimal absorption and flavour release. They are super white, living up to the name, and remain white before, during, and after use. 


    This whiteness means Skruf’s pouches won’t stain your teeth even as they provide a satisfying experience. Pouches can be of different lengths, so if you want to find out more, read our guide on Nicotine Pouch Formats here.


    The packaging, pouch size, and can size are all meticulously designed to enhance both the practicality and enjoyment of Skruf Super White nicotine pouches. 

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

    Skruf offers a wide variety of refreshing minty flavours to tickle your taste buds. There’s Polar Eucalyptus, Fresh Mint, and Frozen Mint—each with its own unique twist. Some flavours are sweet but subtle, while others will give you a minty kick that packs a punch.


    My favourite was the Frozen Mint, which gave me an icy blast of freshness that was perfect for a hot summer day. But if I'm feeling something more mellow and relaxing, the Fresh Mint is my go-to. And let's not forget about Polar Eucalyptus—a refreshing mix of minty and herbal flavours that is truly unique.

    Stephen's Review of Skruf

    Cons:
    1. Only a decent range of flavours available: While I loved the Polar Eucalyptus, it would be great to see a wider range of flavours in the future.

    Pros:
    1. Satisfying Flavor: I was pleasantly surprised by the robust and fruity flavors offered by Velo. It was a delicious and enjoyable experience.
    2. Discreet: The pouches are discreet and perfect for situations where I can't use a vape or cigarette.
    3. Branding: I love it!

    Cons:
    1. Price Point: As an experienced smoker, I found the price point of Velo Pouches slightly higher compared to other cheaper brands on the market.

    Clare's Review

    The Skruf design didn't quite grab my attention, but hey, it's got that classic charm—a style I can appreciate. The nicotine strength? Just right. Gave me a subtle buzz that didn't mess with my busy work day. And the Berry flavour? It was refreshing without drowning me in sweetness.


    My go-to flavour is always mint, so I liked Fresh Mint the most.

    Pros:
    1. Stealthy pouches: Perfect for those who are always on the move, these pouches are like secret agents—discreet and effortlessly cool.

    2. Strength that hits the sweet spot: Not too strong, not too weak—like the Goldilocks of buzzes. It delivers satisfaction without overwhelming your senses.
    3. Sleek design that's the James Bond of pouches: The classic design is sleek, functional, and ready to accompany you throughout your day.
    4. Flavour that lasts longer than a spy movie: The Berry pouches maintain their refreshing taste for an unexpectedly long time to keep you satisfied..

    Cons:
    1. Limited availability, like a hidden treasure: Skruf pouches can be as elusive as hidden treasures in physical stores. This makes online purchasing more convenient.

    2. Flavour range that leaves you wanting more: Although the flavours offered are tasty, they leave us wanting more options.

    Taste: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

    Flavour Range: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
