Review – GLO HeatSticks (NeoStiks) Flavors
GLO has a great range of products – there is truly something to satisfy everyone’s taste.
There are three types of GLO HeatSticks; Kent NeoStiks, Dunhill NeoStiks, and Neo. Kent NeoStiks and Dunhill NeoStiks are very similar to traditional cigarettes both in design and taste. NeoStiks tend to be quite smooth whereas Neo are a bit stronger in flavor, particularly the Boost flavors. Some NeoStiks have a unique feature where they can be crushed at the end of the cycle to change the intensity of the flavor even more. To find packs that offer this feature look for the ‘power’ symbol or ‘click’ symbol.
*For the purpose of this article, we’ll refer to all types of GLO HeatSticks as ‘NeoStiks.’

NeoStiks are available in numerous package sizes and for varying prices depending on the country and methods of purchase.
NeoStiks are longer and thinner (3.5 inches in length and 0.25 inches in width) than traditional cigarettes and most other HeatSticks. They are more similar, in size, to slim cigarettes, therefore they only fit in GLO products. One of our readers theorized that the slim design most likely helps the tobacco within the NeoStik to heat evenly through since GLO does not have a heating blade but instead surrounds the NeoStik with heated coils. If the NeoStik were wider the heat may not be able to evenly penetrate all layers of tobacco.
NeoStiks have 4 main components; the tobacco (reconstituted tobacco, made from shredded stems and leaves), the cooling section (where vapor from the heated tobacco collects), the filter (removes impurities), and the mouthpiece (the section from which the user breathes). The NeoStick structure is almost entirely made out of paper, and most of our test users agreed that it did have the same texture as a traditional cigarette.
Like other big tobacco companies, BAT isn’t very open about the actual ingredients in NeoStiks and when we contacted them, they would not divulge the exact amount of tobacco within each NeoStick. We do know, however, they contain reconstituted tobacco, glycerol, and flavorings, but have very few specifics beyond that.
Tips & Tricks
- If you use Neo rather than Kent NeoStiks, try crushing the HeatStick near the end of the cycle for a more intense taste. Neo’s inner filter catches micro-particles throughout the cycle and, when crushed, will release an intense burst that comes from the micro-particles.
- Buy from Japan! Japan always seems to get the best flavors and the best variety! The Japanese flavors were by far a favourite among our test users! We also love that there are frequently limited edition or seasonal flavors released there. To purchase your HeatSticks from Japan we recommend using Personal Shopper Japan.
