Nicotine pouches, also known as nicopods, all-white snus, and many other terms, have become increasingly popular in recent years as a smoke-free alternative to traditional tobacco products.
Nicotine pouches offer a convenient and discreet way to enjoy nicotine without the harmful effect of smoke and without tobacco.
Since nicotine pouches are a relatively new product on the market (albeit a product development of traditional Swedish tobacco snus which has existed for centuries), many new users are uncertain about what they are, how they work, and how you use them.
One question that many new users have is ”do you have to spit with ZYN nicotine pouches?”.
The short answer to that question is no. Unlike chewing tobacco, which is what most people associate nicotine pouches with, you do not have to spit with ZYN nicotine pouches (or any other nicotine pouch brand for that matter). Whilst there are some similarities between nicotine pouches and chewing tobacco, there are also many differences. One of the key differences is that you don’t have to spit when using them.
Using ZYN nicotine pouches
ZYN nicotine pouches come in small pre-packaged pouches that are placed under the upper lip against the gum for between 10 to 50 minutes. Once there, the nicotine pouch releases nicotine into the bloodstream in a convenient, smoke-free way in a completely discreet manner.
ZYN nicotine pouches are made of plant fiber, flavoring, and nicotine, along with a few additional ingredients that improve the properties of the product. ZYN nicotine pouches exist in two types: slim and mini dry. ZYN exist in a wide selection of flavors and nicotine strengths to cater to everyone’s tastes and preference.
ZYN slim comes in a so-called ”slim” format which means that the pouches have a slim, elongated design which is the most common format on the market. ZYN’s slim nicotine pouches have a slightly moist content and a dry pouch. After a certain amount of time, the pouch will start dripping, however, compared to traditional chewing tobacco, nicotine pouches will drip considerably less. Most nicotine pouch users swallow the drip from the nicotine pouch, but whether or not this is something you want to do ultimately comes down to your own preference. Regardless, the drip from ZYN nicotine pouches is very minimal in comparison so it’s not that you have to spit unless you really dislike a bit of drip.
Since it can take some time before the nicotine pouch starts dripping, most users who don’t enjoy the drip will simply take out the pouch and discard it once it starts dripping. If you’d like, you can then take another pouch to continue to get the nicotine effect but without having to bother with the drip.
Since the content of the slim pouches is slightly moist, these pouches will drip slightly more than the Mini Dry format. And this brings us to the next point.
ZYN mini dry
ZYN mini dry is the second format offered by ZYN. These pouches, as the name suggests, come in a small format which make them completely discreet under the lip. This format is suitable for those who want a completely discreet nicotine experience that doesn’t leave a bulge under the lip.
As the name ”mini dry” also suggests, these pouches are almost completely dry. They come in a dry pouch with almost completely dry contents. As a result, the ZYN mini dry drips minimally, if at all, which makes it a suitable option if you don’t want any drip at all.
All nicotine pouches will eventually drip if you use it for a long enough period of time since the mouth produces saliva, however, if you’re not a fan of the drip (albeit most nicotine pouches drip very minimally), you can simply discard the pouch when it starts to drip. In general, you can expect to be able to use a pouch for at least 15 minutes before it shows any signs of drip.
Can you swallow the drip from ZYN nicotine pouches?
The short answer to this question is yes. Nicotine pouches are made so that they have minimal drip. And the drip that does come from nicotine pouches can be swallowed. However, if you’re not a fan of the drip from nicotine pouches, you can simply use it until it begins dripping and then discard it. A tip is to also look at drier pouches such as ZYN mini dry, as they drip minimally.
