ZYN Pouches Review: Top 5 Flavours

We ranked and reviewed our top 5 favourite ZYN flavours at Haypp.


1. ZYN Cool Mint

ZYN Cool Mint nicotine pouches are great for that refreshing mint flavour you are probably familiar with. When you open the can, you will notice a soft sweet peppermint scent. Each pouch is quite dry compared to other pouch brands (such as VELO, which are more moist), but sits comfortably and stays securely in. The dryness is quite pleasant, they still feel soft when you have a pouch in but you avoid dripping (which can happen if a pouch is too moist). 

The flavour is similar to a pack of minty chewing gum - slightly sweet and not too overpowering. The freshness of the pouch lasts for a long time, around 50 minutes on average. In our opinion, these are the best flavour ZYN pouches!


2. ZYN Citrus

ZYN Citrus is one of the classic ZYN flavours. This lemon flavoured pouch has the perfect combination between sweet and tart, with a taste almost like lemonade. Again, these pouches are dry, so might take some getting used to. Every pouch gives this gentle flavour for around 40 minutes. ZYN Citrus is a great option if you are not keen on mint, or want a different flavour experience that is still refreshing.

3. ZYN Apple Mint

You might be puzzled as to how the ZYN Apple Mint pouches made it to our top five as it is a more unique flavour combination… but don’t knock these ZYN pouches until you’ve tried them! Opening the can, you will get the noticeable waft of green apple hit you first followed by a sweet spearmint base note. As with all ZYN pouches, they are a drier pouch, but they are still soft and park comfortably. The flavour is very gentle, with a crisp green apple taste with a slight spearmint essence that has been perfectly balanced so both flavours get their time to shine. Each pouch will give around 45 minutes of gentle flavour, making them one of the longer lasting pouches. 

4. ZYN Espressino

Like coffee? ZYN Espressino pouches are worth a try. The pouches have an aroma of creamy vanilla coffee, which is also prevalent in the taste as well. The flavour palette is focused on black coffee with subtle notes of cream and vanilla, which feels quite luxurious. Each pouch gives around 30 minutes of flavour - great for a quick treat!

5. ZYN Bellini

ZYN Bellini: the perfect pouch for the lover of tropical fruits. When you open the can, you are greeted by a gentle peach aroma. However, the flavour is a little different: with a noticeable peach flavour and slight base notes of grape to give depth to the flavour. These pouches are quite gentle and give around 30 minutes of flavour. 

ZYN Strengths

Both ZYN mini and ZYN slim pouches come in 3 different strength options: with nicotine strengths ranging from 1.5mg/pouch to 11.2mg/pouch. 


ZYN Mini Strengths

  • 1: 1.5mg of nicotine per pouch.

  • 2: 3mg nicotine per pouch

  • 4: 6mg of nicotine per pouch


ZYN Slim Strengths

  • 2: 5.2mg  of nicotine per pouch

  • 3: 9.6mg of nicotine per pouch

  • 4: 11.2mg of nicotine per pouch


ZYN Slim vs ZYN Mini

The main differences between ZYN slim and ZYN mini pouches is the size of the pouch and the nicotine strength. 

ZYN mini pouches are smaller than ZYN slim and have a lower amount of nicotine per pouch (for example, the strongest ZYN mini has 6mg/pouch but the strongest ZYN slim has around 11.2mg/pouch).
