Coffee grinds in a pouch very similar to dip pouches. Taste great. Invented by college baseball players and used in the MLB. Perfect for those early mornings too. 1/4th of a cup of coffee worth of caffeine per pouch.
I've been wanting to quit for a while. On a normal day, I will usually dip around a can and a half, sometimes 2 a day on weekends.
After reading some of the posts I came across this post about the grinds.com. Now I've tried a couple of other nicotine/tobacco free alternatives. None worked. So I figured I would give this a try since its coffee grinds. I didn't know what expect or what flavors I would prefer, so I purchased the sample pack online (no one locally sells it). Many may think they are a little pricey, as I did at first. But when I am chewing Skoal, I may get 8-10 chews out of a can. Where the grinds have 18 pouches, they are a little small but when the urge really hits, throw in 2 pouches...... I am on my 4th day and just now finished my first can of grinds. I can keep a pouch in for 30-45 minutes, and the flavor lasts a lot long than most tobacco products.
To make a long story short, I like them! I haven't quit chewing 100%, but I have really cut back. Limiting myself to 3 chews a day. I have had the same can of Skoal for 3 days now. The Grinds do give you a feeling of chewing, with a lot of flavor. Hopefully I'll be off tobacco 100%, by this time next week.
The Peppermint and Mocha are really good. Next is the mint chocolate!
