Before You Choose Your Pouches
Although it would be completely fine to pull the trigger on ordering a random selection of nicotine pouches, there are a few points to consider in the interest of getting the most out of your first order.
- Are You an Existing User of Nicotine Products? – First Line Pods do not encourage the use of nicotine pouches for people who are not existing users of nicotine products. Not sure if you fall into this category? If you smoke, vape, chew tobacco, use snus, snuff, or any other form of nicotine-containing product, you are an existing user of nicotine products. So, with that said, if you are an existing user of nicotine products, the next step is to decide on a strength to start with.
- Strength Selection – It may be tempting to place an order for just the strongest nicotine pouches, with the belief that such products will provide the best experience. This is certainly not true and may result in unwanted side effects. We would not want your first order with us to be a bad one, so for this reason, you should consider your past nicotine use when selecting strengths. Regardless of whether you were/are a heavy smoker or vaper, nicotine pouches of high strength can be overwhelming.
- Work Your Way Up – Start your nicotine pouch journey at low strength. You can always move up in strength slowly until you reach an mg/pouch level that satisfies your nicotine needs. It is better to do it this way, rather than dive straight into the deep end and be put off nicotine pouches for good!
Now that you are aware of the points to consider before placing your first order, it is time for some nicotine pouch order inspiration by First Line Pods. All the products featured in this guide can be found on our website.

Best New Nicotine Pouches for Starters
As a starter, there is no need to confine yourself to just the big and known brands when placing your first order. There are many up and coming nicotine pouch developers, making selection difficult, so we at First Line Pods have picked out the best new brand to get started with!
TABS – TABS are a British brand, developed by us here at First Line Pods! You may be a little sceptical by us telling you that these are great pouches for starters, but trust us, we would not say this if we did not think it was true! Check out this review from UK based nicotine pouch reviewer ‘The Nic Critic’.
“At £2 a can, TABS deliver all the high-quality aspects of a pricier pouch for an amazing price. The price point was not the only thing that compelled me to give TABS a great review. The portion material was silky smooth, sitting perfectly under the lip, with no discomfort even after an hour. The flavour of the ice mint pouch was perfect, being intense and refreshing, without going overboard. The strawberry flavour took me by surprise as a hardcore mint pouch fan, it was reminiscent of real strawberry and expertly balanced, without the synthetic sweet taste that many other fruit pouches have. The flavour in both of the pouches lasted right up to the hour mark, accompanied by a satisfying nicotine kick in the first 15 minutes that then slowly reduced to a nice buzz that did not lack duration.” – The Nic Critic
