  2. I have tried the Elicit brand. I tried it for three times and now my inside of my lip is rough feeling and hurts at the base of gum line. I have chewed for years and really need to stop thought this might be good to try. Any one ever have this experience with an herbal one. The company stated that it is probably the mint stems cutting my lip. I just want to know if anyone else has experienced this?

    • Hey CD – not quite sure what you’re referring to. What sort of “experience” are you asking about? If you’re talking about using herbal / fake dip then yes, I’ve tried a SLEW of them.

    • I’ve spent a few hundred dollars on different fake chews & I never had that problem. The biggest problem I had is most of them are just nasty.

    Do they have smokeless alternatives in pouch form? I switched to pouches because I hate getting particles stuck between my teeth. Thanks guys.

    • Patrick, check out Teaza, they are awesome. Sucking on one now.

    • Hello Patrick… I’ve tried them all and will afree with Dan, Teaza is pretty awesome. However, due to customer service or lack there of, I quit purchasing from them. I’ve been using the BaccOff pouch since then. Closest to actual size of tobacco pouch. Also, Triumph Chew is getting ready to put pouches out. Go to there site and take a look. The company and customer service is awesome. Good Luck!

      • No Cam, I did have an issue with an order but they did make it right. Call the 855 # & ask for Tianna or hit them up on FB. They have a Bogo special going on right now, basically buy 1 get 1 free. But yes, things could be ran smoother with them no doubt. But man, the product is so good I tolerate it. Besides SMC, which I use if I’m pounding beers, nothing touches Teaza.

  5. I’m curious to know if herbal is that safe?? Some sites say herbal can cause cancer as well. Also some ingredients are bad for your teeth. Any feed back in this would be great

    • Mason – The fake dips that don’t contain nicotine / tobacco are “safe” to use. I use safe in quotes only because technically it’s not good to put ANYTHING between you cheek and gum for an extended period of time. As for the ingredients… yes, some of them are “bad” but not in a cancer-causing sort of way… more like in a “too much sugar is bad for your teeth” sort of way.

      I just recently published this piece on the blog where we asked a dentist about the safety of one herbal chew: http://blog.killthecan.org/2015/04/fake-dip-one-dentists-opinion/

  6. Has anyone tried any of the coffee alternatives? If so how is it? I’m a cope southern blend guy, but I love coffee and tend to drink it all throughout the day. Also I’m 22 and just got diagnosed with leukemia so it’s time for the can to be kicked.

  9. I’ve been dipping grizzley straight long cut for about 10 years, does anybody know or heard of an alt for straight? I see a lot for wintergreen and mint, Also would perfer loose over pouches … Thank you ahead of time – Brandon

    • There are several good “straight” alternatives. I’d suggest starting with either Smokey Mountain Straight, Classic or Hooch Classic or Spitfire (if you want a bit of a kick).

      0
    • Hey Brandon, I was going to say the same as Chewie did. Smokey Mountain makes a straight….that Spit Fire from Hooch is a really “hot” one as well. Probably was my favorite among the Hooch brand. But I don’t think I’ve ever had the Straight by Smokey Mountain, but have seen it.

    • Almost forgot to mention Triumph’s classic. I was a Skoal Winter green guy….so most of what I tried with the alternatives is Wintergreen. But when I tried this classic flavor from Triumph, it automatically became my favorite. I’ve had classic flavors from Skoal before….but this Triumph is a little different….not sure “what” the taste is, spicy and “cola” like? I don’t know….but its worth a whirl too. Free shipping too =’s WINNING!!

  10. A few years ago i found a tobbacolees snuff called Rizla Natural Choice. Has anyone seen it anymore?

  11. Anyone tried to kick Grizzley Wintergreen using any of these alternatives? Any suggestions would be appreciated. I’ve been been in the can for 26 years now and just found this site. Thank you in advance for your help.

    • I was a Kodiak Wintergreen guy. I’d point you to Hooch, Smokey Mountain, Bacc Off and Holt. All have outstanding Wintergreen products. Let me know how I can help.

    • Just to follow up with what Chewie said, honestly, nothing will be “exactly” like your Grizzly, his Kodiak or my Skoal. The key, at least for me, was to pretend in your mind, Skoal is no longer available, it isn’t made anymore. Then, find something you enjoy and will “do”. For me, I do like the Smokey Mountain Wintergreen….pretty good, a little sweet compared to tobacco. But what I absolutely love as a dip alternative is the Triumph. Its not really anything like my Skoal, but it tastes good to me and works when I’m in a “pinch” for one. Hope that helps, and welcome to a great website to help with your quit!

    • Were you able to find a good alternative? I’m also a Grizzley Wintergreen user…

    • I am also trying kick Grizzly Wintergreen. I just recently tried Golden Eagle Herbal Chew Wintergreen. I won’t do that again it was too grainy and too dry. I’m trying to find one that’s actually moist to help replace Grizzly with how moist it was.

  12. Looking to quit Copenhagen. Thanks for the product review. I’m going to try the Smokey Mountains Classic.

    0
    • Hey Scott, please let me know if that classic Smokey Mountain has a similar taste to the Cope. I know nothing is going to be the same as the Cope, none of the fake dips I use are “exactly” the same as my Skoal Wintergreen. I have just found some alternatives that “will do”. That’s the key I guess. But let me know what you think and good luck on defeating the tobacco. I am now on day 51 without the tobacco and nicotine.

    • Just to follow up I quit Copenhagen for almost 6 weeks now. I tried the substitute for about 3 dips and quit.
      I used the nicotine patch and when the urge got to me I chewed the 4mg nicotine gum. And sometimes I would chew two pieces at a time. Then I would mix regularl chewing gum with it. After the patches were gone I only use the nicotine gum. Yes it’s a new habit but much safer. And each day its easier and now I don’t think or crave the Copenhagen. I gained a few pounds and have toothpicks handy and nicotine gum within reach while driving my semi.

  13. Just to follow up on my 4 pack of Triumph, as expected, I was not disappointed! I have not had the cinammon yet, but the Wintergreen, Classic and Mint were all SOLID! I was told the Classic was suppose to Mimic Cope, but I found it just to be something of its own. Very tasty I must add. Kind of spicy. The Mint was probably the best Mint I’ve had of the fakes.

  14. Any recommendations for something that’s similar to Copenhagen Long cut?

    • Samir….I was a Skoal guy, but I dabbled with Cope over then years. I think that Smokey Mountains Classic is the closest to Cope as any I’ve tried. Try it and let us know. I’ve been trying to get a Cope guy on my golf league to try it and give me his thoughts….so if you do, let me know. Thanks and Good Luck!

    • Best I’ve found is SMC classic. I would be open to other alternatives

  15. After dipping for 25+ years (Skoal Wintergreen Long Cut), thru suggestions on this site, I tried the wintergreen triumph, loved it, so decided to order a 4 pack sampler (wintergreen, cinnamon, classic & mint). As with others on here! I will only experiment with zero nicotine strength products…no more poison for this guy
