VELO Pouches Review: Top 5 Pouches
We ranked and reviewed our top 5 favourite VELO pouches.
1. VELO Freeze
Our favourite, VELO Freeze X-Strong, give the perfect sting of peppermint. The sharpness of the mint cuts as you open the can and makes a refreshing change from the classic sweet mints you tend to get with nicotine pouches. Be warned, when you first place the pouch they do have a slight bite - but the softness of the pouch makes them comfortable once you get over the initial intense tingle. The experience lasts around 40 minutes and gives you a powerful kick for the duration.
2. VELO Ice Cool
Our favourite, the VELO Ice Cool Strong, give you the mint chills. The smell and taste of peppermint is perfectly balanced with a base note of menthol. Each portion sits nicely between the upper lip and gum, noone will notice it is there. There is an initial cooling sensation when you situate your pouch, but as you settle in with the flavour you begin to taste the sweetness of peppermint with the touch of the cooling menthol underneath. It gives a full mint kick for around 40 minutes (much like VELO Freeze), but is a gentler and slightly sweeter flavour experience for those who prefer a less sharp mint.
3. VELO Polar Mint
Another staple mint flavour pouch to keep on hand. These pouches come in both the mini and slim portions (but VELO Polar Mint Mini are a favourite). These also have spearmint at the core of the flavour, but focus more on the sweet dimension. Each pouch is subtly sweet and smooth, making for a comfortable mint experience with minimal kick compared to VELO Ice Cool or VELO Freeze. When the pouch is situated, you get to the real depth of the flavour and a feel a gentle chilling sensation. Each pouch gives around 45 minutes of impact, with the nicotine feeling less intense than some of the other VELO mint flavours.
VELO Polar Mint are perfect for lovers of a sweeter spearmint flavour and for anyone who wants a less powerful nicotine kick.
4. VELO Tropic Breeze
The VELO Tropic Breeze - the pouch for the lover of all things tropical flavoured. When you open the can, you are greeted by the tart scent of tropical fruits with an almost citrus note. The flavour is not too dissimilar, with noticeable mandarin and mango notes to give ensure the flavour is not too acidic or too sweet. This tropical flavour lasts around 40 minutes, giving the true tropical tang consistently throughout use.
5. VELO Urban Vibe
A favourite thanks to the familiar flavour, the VELO Urban Vibe pouches have a similar scent to your favourite energy drink. These pouches are subtle and sweet, with an almost redcurrant taste. They sit comfortably and give around 40 minutes of continual tangy redcurrant flavour.
VELO nicotine pouches come in 4 different strengths: Less Intense (4mg/pouch) Medium (6mg/pouch) Strong (10mg/pouch) Extra Strong (11mg/pouch)

VELO Pouch Sizes

VELO Slim vs VELO Mini
VELO mini pouches are fractionally smaller than VELO slim pouches, and also come in a smaller can. They also have a lower nicotine strength compared to the slim pouches (for example, VELO Polar Mint Slim has 10mg/pouch vs VELO Polar Mint Mini which has 8mg/pouch).
However, both fit comfortably (and discreetly) between your upper lip and gum.
