Sales Soar for Fruity and Candy-Flavored Pods Made by Juul Competitors

Companies that make fruity and candy-flavored pods compatible with Juul devices are seeing big increases in sales, after Juul Labs stopped selling most of its flavored nicotine pods under pressure from the Food and Drug Administration, The New York Times reports.

These so-called “Juul-alikes” include pods made by Eonsmoke, which are cheaper than Juul’s products, and available in more flavors. Some of the company’s pods contain levels of nicotine higher than any Juul sells, the article notes.

Another competitor, Ziip, sells dozens of flavors compatible with Juul, including Froopy, Iced Pina Colada, Cinnamon Roll and Strawberry Lemonade.

Juul is trying to combat the copycat pods through lawsuits, and complaints with the International Trade Commission. “If the box isn’t around, the parent would say it’s a Juul pod, but it’s not us,” said Matthew Hult, a Juul lawyer. “It injects confusion and tarnishes the Juul brand.”
