grinds... 


www.getgrinds.com

i have no affiliation with this company what so ever, but I thought Id share..

If you have a chewing tobacco habit that you are trying to kick these are miracle workers and 100% safe...I have dipped ever since i was 16 (disgusting redface), not every day but during basball games etc...I saw an ad for these and tried them. Its coffee grinds flavored like dip in pouches, gives you a good jolt and also give you the physical feeling of chewing....if you're trying to kick it, give it a shot...

Oooh...I might check that out.  It is a vice.  I always get strange looks buying dip in a business suit.


EDIT:  Mint chocolate and Mocha are the two flavors?  That's it?  I can't imagine how that would remind me of dip.  I have never seen chocolate flavored dip.  Sounds gross.

Damn.  I was pretty excited about this.

And, despite their stated intention, the testimonials make it sound more like a caffeine supplement than a dip alternative.

Re: grinds... 


I just tried to order the sampler but I apparently misread the discription.  I thought the sampler was 9 cans and not 6.  With shipping, that makes it nearly $5 a can.

I am not sure I can justify that.  I only pay half that for the real stuff.

give it a shot, i like the mint flavor, its obviously not as good as throwing in a chew but if you really want to quit its a great substitute....

Re: grinds... 


Got em.  Not bad - but the pouches fall apart on me and I get grounds in my mouth which, for some reason, I can't stand despite the fact that actually lose dip doesn't bother me at all.  Maybe it is because the coffee grounds are a little crunchy and are more noticeable when they get stuck in my teeth.

Also...I ordered a sampler (3 mint, 3 mocha) and I got six Mint and a note that they were out of Mocha but would send them free of charge when they get them in August.  And, to make things right, they are sending me a few cans of their new, yet unreleased flavor, cinnamon roll.

So, assuming they send me three cans of cinnamon roll and three of Mocha when available, my initial order of 3 mint and 3 mocha (for something in the neighborhood of $25) will have netted me:

6 cans mint
3 cans mocha
3 cans cinnamon roll


Not a bad customer appreciation gesture.

Business suit dipper here too.

Hey Easton, that cinnamon roll sounds pretty good. I've been dipping Kodiak since I was 16, and I'm 35 now. Needless to say, it's time to quit but as you all know, it just becomes a part of life. It's not only the addiction, but also the habit. Well I'm sure I'm not telling y'all anything you don't already know.

I might have to give that a shot. The big problem I see is I just like the taste if kodiak.

Re: grinds... 


I actually emailed the owners to say that and I got a response.  He said they tried traditional dip flavors but they all clashed so badly with the flavor of the coffee (which made sense after I thought about it) that they scrapped it.

Mint chocolate isn't bad.  It hasn't replaced my habit entirely but I have already noticed that I do it less.  One the way to/from the gym, the little caffeine jolt is kind of nice.  Same goes for the ride to/from work.  I don't break out the real stuff until I'm watching the Cards game on DVR after the rest of the house is in bed.

And I don't have to deal with the admittedly disgusting spit bottles.

Re: grinds... 


i think mint choc is the best for sure, only because it reminds me the most of a chew, although i usually just dipped straight anyway...

for me its really just having the feeling of a couple pouches tucked in the lip...but glad i could get someone else on them! Hope both you guys end up quitting...
