NOT CIGS. NOT DIP. SNUS! The advertisement reads. And at over $4 a package of twelve, rather expensive, too.

"Where do I put it?" I ask the lady behind the counter. She stares at me as if I'm planning to shove the product up my ass. "Where does it go?" I try again, "Where do I put it?"

"In your mouth." She says.

"So...its like dip? I ask.

"Yes." She says.

I remind her, "Its says, 'Not dip.'" I point at the sign. She looks at the sign. Then back at me.

Philip Morris is testing this product in the D/FW area. I bought some today. Its like Skoal Bandits. Except its dry, crumbled snuff as opposed to moist snuff. Its a variant of Swedish tobacco of the same name. somebritinmass sent me two cans of dry crumbled snuff. Its good, but DAMN! I usually chew moist snuff. This, being nearly identical to Bandits, is hardly the innovation I've seen in the past. Take Stonewall hard snuff. That was a pellet of tobacco which slowly dissolved in your mouth. That was good stuff! I just don't see the excitement in this. Then again, I've seen this all before.

I ask the lady behind the counter, "Have you tried it yet?"

"No!"

"Are you going to?"

"No."

"Ok, I'll put in my mouth." I tell her.

"And you have to promise not to chew it. It says that too."

"Ok."

So I tried it. It was tasty, but wholly unsatisfying. I chew because I like to chew. This method was way to passive for me. Still, if I find myself somewhere I'm unable to - this is a FANTASTIC alternative.

Apparently, you haven't heard the Rush Limbaugh parody.

I think you should try stuffing it up your ass just to say you did.

come on, be cool, you know you want to be the first kid on your block to shove it up your ass...

...and you say I never read your posts. ;-)

Thanks! :-) I am just trying to help my friend have better oral hygiene, I worry about him. Figured this little experiment might help facilitate that by introducing him to another orifice. ;-)

I've already stuffed one in my nose, and other underneath the fold of flesh in my eye.

I met a girl in Des Moines who called me a pussy because I didn't chew Copenhagen and she did. She was hard-core.
