Lifted Made and SMPLSTC Create FYX, a Nicotine Pouch Not Derived From Tobacco

LAKE FOREST, Il, Oct. 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Acquired Sales Corp. (OTCQB: AQSP) ( today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary Lifted Made, Zion, IL ( and privately-held SMPLSTC, Costa Mesa, CA ( have partnered to create an equally-owned new entity called SmplyLifted LLC, which, through its flagship brand FYX, will begin selling non-tobacco nicotine pouches in several flavors and nicotine strengths.

FYX pouches are made for adults who want to make the switch from nicotine pouches that are traditionally made from nicotine extracted from tobacco plants, or from tobacco waste and dust.

Nicholas S. Warrender, CEO of Lifted Made, said, “All or nearly all of the current dominant nicotine pouch brands are really only tobacco leaf-free, as the products still contain nicotine sourced from the tobacco plant. SmplyLifted’s FYX nicotine pouches are free of all tobacco-derived components and ingredients. This is big because as regulation of tobacco-based vapes and other tobacco-based products intensifies, SmplyLifted’s FYX nicotine pouches will be a distinct alternative, and should be a game changer for consumers and retailers!”

The FYX nicotine pouches will initially come in four flavors including mint, strawberry, tropical and winter green, in strengths of 2, 4 and 6 mg. of nicotine, and will be sold in plastic canisters containing 20 pouches. The FYX canisters will be competitively priced, and are expected to be sold globally by retailers and direct to consumers online.

Clayton Jones, CFO of SMPLSTC, said “SMPLSTC is very excited to be partnering with Lifted Made on SmplyLifted’s new FYX nicotine pouches. Working together and accessing the extensive distribution and sales channels of both Lifted Made and SMPLSTC, we expect sales of SmplyLifted’s FYX nicotine pouches to be robust. Hopefully this should set the stage for additional close collaboration between Lifted Made and SMPLSTC in the future, which both companies are excited about.”
