Comments about Walgreens Nicotine Mini-Lozenges 2mg Mint, 81 ea:
I've been using the "old style" in the blister pack, those are easy to use and transport. these require you to count out (because I'm slowly reducing the amount I use each day) a number of them and then figure out how to carry that number with you (I finally used a zip-lock bag).
the taste is awful! it starts with this heavy plastic mint flavor and gets worse from there. I think the mg is concentrated with the smaller size as it causes me to gag and after awhile I have to remove it from my mouth for a bit.
they also seem to disolve faster than the older kind.
overall I wish I could still get the blister pack type.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
