We got a letter from a customer:
Why are you buying nicotine pouches from websites that have more candy than nicotine pouches?
There are some very well known companies in Sweden that sell nicotine pouches. After half a year of searching for the one place to buy Europe region products, I found Niqopods.online
As a consumer, I have been downright disgusted with the shipping costs at other websites. Shipping is expensive. I found a website that wanted to charge me $50 USD to ship 1 can of nic pouches. Unbelievable. The sites that come up first in your Google search charge much more than they should for shipping. For example, you could spend another $25 USD to have 3 cans shipped to you not first class, just standard registered international mail.
If you don't want a hassle buying your products this is where you should be.
They sell several more brands of nic pouches that I have not seen at any other website buying five cans or more will save you more as well.
The website is easy to use. Customers are encouraged to give their honest opinion of the products they buy. Like them or not. Europe region products are much different than what is sold in North America. You will probably have to buy a few different things to find what you like best. These guys make it easy to do that.
Shop here for nicotine pouches. This is the website for grown ups. No candy here.
I will never buy from any other websites. When you find honesty, selection, and reasonable shipping. There is no reason to go elsewhere.
Thank you Sal!
Nicotine pouches is like a tea bag, but much smaller. The fill inside is high-quality food grade ingredient like plant fiber and chewing gum base. This makes the pouches soft and comfortable under the lip. The fresh flavours comes from food-graded flavouring.
The nicotine is added as nicotine salt inside the pouches and delivering a strong nicotine release.
Nicotine pouches is also called All White Snus and is a variant of the Swedish white portion snus but does not contains any tobacco.
How do I use them?
Take one (or two) pouches and put it under either side of the upper lip. After a few moments, the nicotine and flavour is released. How long the flavour lasts varies between brands, but usually 30-60 minutes. Discard the pouch in the waste compartment after use.
Why would you use nicotine pouches?
The main advantage of switching to nicotine pouches (from burning tobacco) is that nicotine can be consumed in a harm reduced way instead of burning tobacco and absorbing the nicotine via the lungs as with cigarettes. (This is a safer way to enjoy nicotine.). According to a studie in the US, 60% quit smoking because of health reasons. You can do it also - with the help of nicotine pouches.
Nicopods can also be used anywhere without disturbing other people to the smoke or smell from smoking.
Do nicotine pouches harm you?
Nicotine pouches contains nicotine which is an addictive substance - just like caffein and sugar. You should not use it if:
- you are allergic or sensitive to nicotine
- you are pregnant or breast-feeding
- have high blood pressure
The nicotine alone can not cause cancer, but excessive use of nicotine can lead to a higher heart rate. On the plus side, nicotine improves performance on attentionally and cognitively demanding vigilance tasks and response inhibition performance (report here).
When using nicotine pouches, you might feel a slight burn under the lip and some nausea. Flavours that contain menthol might intensify this feeling.
The advantage of using nicotine pouches is that you can consume nicotine, without exposing the airways to harmfull carbon monoxide.
This studie shows that 46% wants to quit smoking, and many smokers experience nicotine pouches to be a good replacement to cigarettes - instead of nicotine spray or nicotine plasters for instance. Royal Society for Public Health presented a studie, saying that "...nicotine is no more dangerous than the caffeine in a cup of coffee...".
Quit smoking with nicotine pouches
This is what Mitch Zeller, director of the FDA's Center for Tobacco Products, said in an FDA press statement last fall: "Evidence shows these products could help addicted smokers who use the most harmful combusted products completely switch to a product with potentially fewer harmful chemicals,"
No nicotine or tobacco use at all, is preferable to any nicotine or tobacco use. But to understand how "unsafe" products can still be "safer" than cigarettes, one needs to understand the risks of smoking. Tobacco cigarettes kill at least one in two smokers on average ten years earlier than never smokers. Nine out of ten (89.7 percent) early deaths in smokers can be traced to the toxic, carcinogenic, cloud of smoke inhaled into the lungs. Cigarettes cause another 41,000 deaths in nonsmokers due to secondhand smoke.

Do I need to store them cool?
No. You do not need to keep them in the refrigerator.
What does the dots means?
The dots (or numbers) on the can is a way to measure the nicotine strength. More dots or higher number means a stronger nicotine pouch (higher level of nicotine). The strength is measured in "milligram nicotine per gram" (or sometimes milligram/pouch). Most manufacturers rates by a number or dots.
Unfortunately the number of dots is not exactly comparable between brands. But in general it means:
- 1-2 dots: regular strength around 6-8mg/g
- 3 dots: strong and around 12-14mg/g
- 4 dots and more: extra strong around 16-20mg/g
The overall experience is not dependent alone on nicotine content, but also the typ of flavours.
Do I chew on them?
No, you should not chew it. The nicotine is absorbed through the gum. Nicotine pouches is not intended to chew on – this will inhibit product performance.
