The Outlaws Guide to DIPPING

The Outlaws Guide to DIPPING

May 19, 2023Jared Boyce

If you watch a baseball game from time to time, you’ll often see your favorite player spit a wad of brown goodness onto the field. Better yet, If you’ve ever seen the movie Sandlot, I’m quite sure you’d remember the traumatizing effect that Chewing Tobacco had on Benny and his minions while riding the Whirly Rocket.

Thankfully for you, We are going to inform you of the RIGHT way to begin your dip journey, with less vomiting.

What is "Dip"?

Made famous by baseball players in the early 1900s, Chewing tobacco, (dip, chew, snus, snuff, or best known in West Virginia as Rub - insert “Country Roads”), is a smokeless tobacco product made from tobacco leaves, ran through a grinder, or cut into long strands, is then fermented, sweetened and processed for lip goodness. According to a 2011 Survey done by the CDC’s Youth Risk Program, (OuTdAteD!) “Young White Males” aged 13-17, are usually those who partake in the art of Dipping.


How does it work?

Once you “pack your lip,” the nicotine (which is three to four times the amount in a standard cigarette) is absorbed through the gums and tissue of the mouth. Don’t worry about the burn. You won’t die. If placed in the “chewers” mouth for a significant period, the subject will experience a “buzz” or a light head rush. Followed by a copious amount of saliva that then needs to be discarded by spittin’. (In this case: Please. Do not swallow.)

You’ll also have a nice lip bump which makes you a Prime Time Hogger Holder aka BADASS DUDE or DUDETTE.




What Flavor is Best? 

The age-old dip sentiment goes: “WINTERGREEN WILL MAKE ‘ER MEAN!”

Dip Companies usually stick to the basics, Especially with new flavor bans in order across the nation, Flavors are hard to come by. For the most part, Each Chew Tobacco brand sticks with the basics: Wintergreen, Natural, and Mint. Other brands will offer Apples, Berries, and Vanilla’s… if you’re lucky.

In Short, Start Small. There’s no rush on packing fat lips. Pick your flavor and test your might. You’ll find that less is more in some cases. So don’t overdo it, and you’ll be just fine.


Tobacco and Nicotine Alternatives

Now that we’ve gone through the process of Tobacco and Nicotine dips, Let's talk ALTERNATIVES.

There are companies that offer a dip alternative for you to enjoy all of the benefits of dipping, with less headache of finding out of stock options and overall addiction. (Sounds good to me!)

Outlaw Dip offers these alternatives with a great lineup of flavors that are the only ones on the market to date. Flavors rule the market, Alternative or not. Outlaw Dip flavors range from Pineapple, Watermelon, Root Beer, Mt. Dew, Minty Milkshake, Bourbon, Blueberry, Wintergreen, and Mint to name only a few. Other alternative companies do exist, but with fewer options and quality issues. With Outlaw Dip, we process and cure all-natural tea leaves to ensure user health and quality is a top priority, all while infusing the perfect amount of flavor for users to enjoy and keeping the experience of “dipping tobacco” alive and well. It all spits the same: BLACK!

Not to mention the Caffeine and Coffee Alternatives like IRONSIDE and CAN OF JOE. Ironside offers a caffeine-infused dip that will keep you on your toes throughout your day. Whereas Can Of Joe gives you that morning boost you need to get up and at’em! One pouch of Can Of Joe equals one full cup of coffee and offers a significant boost in caffeine without the hassle of making an actual cup of coffee. (We all hate dirty dishes, seriously.)

Whatever your flavor is, We hope this play-by-play will help you choose the best option for you. Because let's be honest here: We’ve all seen the Movie, and none of us want to barf on a Whirly Rocket… E-V-E-R.
