Velo changes names and design
The popular Velo series is going through some changes in the new year, with some new designs and some new names! Today, we’re going to check out all of these products, what they’re going to be called, and get to know each of these flavors. The Velo series is incredibly popular, and if you have a favorite flavor in this lineup, don’t fret, the same taste will continue over to a new name and a new look! For those who may not be familiar with Velo, I’m going to do a brief FAQ on this brand before we get into the products and changes! Let’s get to know Velo a little better.
Q: What are Velo Nicotine Pouches? Who makes Velo?
A: Velo is a nicotine pouch series made by BAT / Fiedler & Lundgren in Sweden. Velo is one of the more popular nicotine pouch series in the world, having grown in popularity year after year since it’s launch in 2018.
Q: Is Velo a snus product?
A: No, Velo is a nicotine pouch. Snus products contain tobacco. However, Velo, as a nicotine pouch, contains plant fiber instead of tobacco, but still has nicotine and delivers a similar experience to traditional snus.
Q: Where can I buy Velo Nicotine Pouches? How can I find Velo near me?
A: Here on SnusExpress, you can buy a wide range of Velo products, and have them shipped fresh, right to your door!
Q: How do I use Velo Nicotine Pouches?
A: It is quite easy! Take your can of Velo, and open the seal with your thumbnail. Then, open the top lid and take out a Velo nicotine pouch. From there, simply put it under your upper lip and enjoy! I usually can use a Velo pouch and get flavor out of it for up to about 45 minutes, which is a pretty decent amount of flavor longevity.
Now that we know Velo a little better, let’s check out these changes to the series, from the old names to the new names!

Snubie’s Comments: The new Velo Mighty Peppermint is one for those who enjoy a powerful taste of mint and want something with a strong kick! This one has a pretty refreshing flavor, with an icy, cool taste of peppermint and subtle hints of menthol. I like that it’s not overly sweet. It does have a little sweetness to it, but it’s certainly not overdone. If you want a fresh, icy taste and a strong kick, this is one you’ll want to put on your next order to check out! Of all the Mighty Peppermint variants, this one has the lightest strength at 11mg.

These pouches give you a thrilling frostiness and a lasting feeling of freshness under your lip since they are infused with stimulating peppermint and menthol.”
Snubie’s Comments: This one is going to be similar to the last one, but it has a little more nicotine, at 14mg. I’d say the previous one is closer to a regular strength, but this one is closer to a strong. There’s also another one we’ll talk about in a second that is more of an extra strong. Of the three, this one is kind of in the middle in terms of strength. It will have the same flavor of peppermint and menthol, so if you like the previous one but want just a little more nicotine, this is the one you’ll want to check out next!
SnusExpress.com Description: “Velo Max Mighty Peppermint Slim takes your nicotine experience to the max! Its tobacco free, all-white and slim nicotine pouches deliver ultra-strong nicotine kicks (17 mg/portion) together with a frost biting flavor of peppermint topped with an icy touch of menthol.The filling used consists of natural plant fibers. An all-white and high-filling that ensures that these discreet nicopods won’t stain and that they drip minimally, which in turn lengthens their intense burst of both mint and nicotine.”
Snubie’s Comments: This one is a lot like the Velo Mighty Peppermint I talked about before. I know, there are a lot of flavors in this series with that name! It will have the same sharp, icy, powerful taste of peppermint and cooling notes of menthol. However, it has one difference: it’s stronger! If you find yourself enjoying Velo Mighty Peppermint in the less strong format and desire more kick, you can get the 17mg version and find a little extra strength to it!
SnusExpress.com Description: “Velo Crispy Peppermint offers a refreshing and stimulating experience that not many other snus can match! They are tobacco-free, slim, and all-white nicotine pouches that deliver a fresh and ice-cold mint flavor that is topped by subtle notes of sweet butterscotch. An icy burst of mint that is enhanced by a strong and stimulating nicotine kick (9.5 mg/portion). The filling used is comfortable, and the slim pouches consist of natural plant fibers. It is a high-quality filling that minimizes drip and prevents any risk of staining your teeth, resulting in an amazingly extended release of taste and mint.”
Snubie’s Comments: Ice Cool is one of the earliest flavors from this series, going all the way back to Lyft Ice Cool in 2018. I’ve always found this one to be a pretty well rounded product. It’s also one of the more popular ones in the Velo series. With Velo Crispy Peppermint Slim, you’ll encounter an icy, refreshing, direct taste of peppermint, a mild sweetness, and subtle hints of menthol. This is one that I think all lovers of mint will enjoy!
SnusExpress.com Description: “Velo Witty Spearmint – A discreet and tobacco free Velo Snus from the manufacturer BAT with a fresh flavor profile! Its all-white and slim nicotine pouches deliver medium strong nicotine kicks (8 mg/g) together with a refreshing spearmint flavor that is rounded off with light tones of sweetness. The filling used consists of natural plant fibers. A high-quality filling that ensures that these nicopods won’t stain and that they drip minimally. This minimal amount of drip results in a long-lasting release of both flavor and nicotine.”
Snubie’s Comments: The Velo series has a lot of mint flavors to it. Most of them are peppermint, or a blend of peppermint and menthol. However, I like this one more than those because it has a spearmint taste. Usually with mint flavors I prefer spearmint over peppermint, and I like the way they approach the flavor in this one. The spearmint flavor in this pouch is smooth, and has a fresh sweetness to it. Of all the mint flavors in the Velo family, I think this is the best one.
SnusExpress.com Description: “The tobacco free Velo Groovy Grape Mini All White delivers medium strong nicotine kicks (6 mg/portion) together with a tasty, fresh and slightly tart flavor of red grapes. The all white filling used consists of natural plant fibers. An innovative filling that ensures that these discreet and comfortable mini-portions won’t stain and that they drip minimally. Something that in turn makes sure that the release of both flavor and nicotine last for a satisfyingly long time.”
Snubie’s Comments: Grape is a very uncommon flavor in the nicotine pouch segment. I remember when I first tried the Lyft version of this one in 2020, I was pretty impressed, because it brought forth a flavor that others tend to shy away from. The grape taste in this one is pretty nice! It’s lightly sweet, fresh, and fruity. If you like grape and want a smaller, more discrete pouch, you’ll definitely enjoy this one!
SnusExpress.com Description: “Velo Blushy Berry – A tobacco free and all-white snus from Velo that captures the taste of a Swedish summer! Its slim and discreet nicotine pouches deliver medium strong nicotine kicks (6 mg/portion) together with a sweet and fruity strawberry flavor.The filling used consists of natural plant fibers. A high-quality filling that ensures that these nicopods won’t stain and that they provide a long-lasting release of both flavor and nicotine.”
Snubie’s Comments: Lastly, we come to my favorite one in this list: Ruby Berry, now known as Blushy Berry! This one originally launched in the Summer of 2019, as Lyft Strawberry Bloom. It proved quite popular, and came back in early 2022 as Lyft Ruby Berry, then went on to be rebranded as Velo. It has stuck around through another change, and is now known as Velo Blushy Berry! This one is a great one in the summertime, but honestly you can enjoy it anytime. It has a nice, fresh, lightly sweet taste of strawberry. If you like fruity flavors, this is one you’ll want to try out on your next order!
The Bottom Line
And there you have it, the new names of products in the Velo series! Of this list if I had to pick a few favorites, I’d probably say Witty Spearmint, Blushy Berry, and Groovy Grape. I like Witty Spearmint because I’m a big spearmint fan, and it has a smooth, refreshing flavor of spearmint. Blushy Berry is really tasty because the strawberry flavor comes across in a beautiful way. And Groovy Grape I like because grape isn’t a super common flavor in nicotine pouches, and BAT made a really tasty one with this product. The others are mostly mint tastes, and are probably the more popular ones in the Velo series. Mint lovers will continue to be pleased with the Velo series, because there are a wide array of flavors, strengths, and portion sizes. So, if you like the Velo series, and have flavors you enjoy, don’t worry, the same flavors will live on even with the design and name changes! If you’re new to nicotine pouches, the Velo series is a great one to jump into. I’ve always found them to have great product quality, and fresh flavors.
