Chew: What are you dippin?

Smash FactorsSmash Factors Members Posts: 3,670 ✭✭
When I was a kid we always chewed Kodiak wintergreen but I prefer Skoal Long Cut Classic.



I was talkin with a cashier at a local mini mart the other day. He chewed Copenhagen for about 20 years and recently switched to their long cut wintergreen. I bought a can and its really not that bad. Likin it right now.



What are you dippin?

    Used to dip nothing but Skoal long cut cherry. Eventually switched to pouches for the convenience, then quit all together. Now I usually keep a tin of Camel Snus around, but its just not the same.

    Genuine question - what's the allure of dipping?

    Genuine answer....It cannot be explained to those that don't, as many addictions can't.



    Copenhagen.

    I think it's been 20+ years since I quit dipping Copenhagen (never could stand the long cut), and still when my one of my buddies gets the can out I would love to have a dip.



    It really can't be explained, but if you don't do it already.....don't start.

    I tried skoal apple once. I was pretty drunk and man.. it really amplified that. I could barely walk. Tasted great though.

    I buy Copenhagen by the log, usually 2 of the 5 can logs a week. Signing up on FreshCope.com gets you coupons all the time. That said, I can get 5 cans for $15.99 before tax instead of the normal $3.80 per can. I have tried other brands/flavors, but nothing else satisfies the craving like Cope.

    I used to dip original Cope with a lid full of Jack Daniels nixed in.... it was a great buzz. I used to smoke too. Thankfully I quit both before it was too late. Saved a ton of money and dont have to worry about having half of my face removed. It's a NASTY, BAD habit. Quit while you can before it's too late.

    Same as any other addiction. Booze, smoking, drugs, etc. Pleasure / conditioned response / physical addiction.

    Wintergreen Kodiak. Have no desire to try anything else. I hope to quit soon. Isn't that what everyone always says?

    Skoal Long Cut Cherry.



    I've tried to quit 5-6 times, its very tough. Its the 'oral fixation' that is tough to beat. I can get over the addiction to nicotine in a week or so (Of ****) but I always want to pack something in the lip and end up faltering.



    Americans are lucky though. You know what a tin costs in Canada? 20 dollars. Seriously.

    I tried some peach dip once... I didn't like it much and spit it out. Smells really good. Then I look at pictures of people with half a face and just chew another piece of gum.

    No it's dip, and it's banned in most EU countries (except Sweden I think)

    I'm surprised it's not more than that. When I first started dipping, I could get it for $.79 a can and 14 years later, when I quit, it was around $3.00 a can. That was in 1997, so for it to only have gone up $.80 in 15 years is not too bad. I thought it'd be over $5 a can by now.

    It usually is about $5 per can if you go to a convenience store, but the price can vary a lot depending on brand.

    Apologies in need of education...dipping is chewing yeah? or chewing is dipping .....either way it's something similar to tobacco that's not legal in Europe and comes in cans but you don't drink it ...right?



    Geez, I think i'm totally lost here.

    It's a moist, smokeless tobacco that comes in a can. It comes in many different flavors, but the most common are natural and wintergreen. You take a pinch and put it between your front lip and gum. It makes you want to spit. Some people actually swallow the spit instead. Some people put a big pinch in their lip....other people like me take a smaller pinch. I used to hang with guys that would only get about 8-10 pinches per can. I get about 15-20.



    Like cigarettes, it is bad for you. Can cause cancer and gum disease, but I brush and floss regularly to keep my mouth healthy.



    I go through phases with chew. It lasts for a few months, then i stop for a long time.



    To see what it looks like, do a google image search for Copenhagen tobacco.

    Not here in Georgia. I buy at a convenience store close to me. It's cheaper there than anywhere else. It's under $4 per can here.



    As for why I dip so much, I get a 3 finger dip and get maybe 5 a can.

    Grizz WinterGreen Long Cut, gotta love that "your jaws going to fall off" feeling it gives you. If the wife wasn't so opposed to me dipping I'd quit smoking and just chew. Now I just get a dip in while I'm on the course, or out drinking with buddies.
