Chewing Tobacco Alternatives

Chewing Tobacco Alternatives

May 19, 2023Jared Boyce

We used to be big-time tobacco users ourselves, and while we loved the taste and sensation it offers, we really hated getting sick. After learning more about the health risks, like cancer, increased risk of heart disease and stroke, and dental health issues, we decided to quit the stuff for good. It seems like a lot of others felt the same way because tobacco use of all kinds has been steadily declining in recent years.

If you’re looking to quit chewing tobacco because of the health risks, you need an alternative that can help you along the journey to being tobacco-free and keep you that way once you’ve hit your goal. Obviously, there’s Outlaw Dip’s tobacco-free dip, but there are a variety of other alternatives that might work better for you. You’ve probably heard of some before, but in case some readers haven’t, we’ll list them all below:

Sunflower seeds

Putting sunflower seeds between your lip and gum just like you would with chewing tobacco can emulate the feeling, and there’s a variety of flavors to choose from so you don’t have to get bored of one. You can even mix things up with some pumpkin seeds, watermelon seeds, and really any other kind of edible nut or seed.

Chewing gum

Gum is one of the more popular chewing tobacco alternatives because there are so many different flavors to choose from, and it keeps your mouth occupied just like a pinch of chew would. Because you’ll probably be chewing gum pretty often, make sure you buy from a sugar-free brand.

Shredded beef jerky

Shredded beef jerky surprisingly replicates the texture and consistency of chewing tobacco pretty well. Find a flavor you like, stick it between your lip and gum just like you would with chew or dip, and enjoy!

Nicotine patches

Although they’re more marketed toward smokers, nicotine patches can be effective for smokeless tobacco users too. Keep in mind that they are just a temporary solution and will often work better when paired with another alternative.

Outlaw Dip

After we quit tobacco for good, we set out to create chewing tobacco alternatives that are better than the real thing.  Outlaw Dip is just as moist and juicy as your favorite chew or dip and has that same taste and sensation you crave, just without tobacco.
