New ‘Snuff’ Something To Chew On

Sitting in a hotel lobby in a white cowboy hat, black vest and a rodeo belt buckle, an old cowboy touted the health benefits of snuff. People have gone to dentists to have teeth pulled after picking up the habit, only to find out their gums have strengthened and the procedure is no longer necessary. It curbs hunger and helps you lose weight. It soothes the stomach and helps fight colds. The snuff Dave Holt was talking about wasn’t Copenhagen or Skoal but a concoction born of his own imagination. It’s an alfalfa-based product laced with water, honey, peppermint oil and cayenne pepper. The legume base, Holt says, even has a higher percentage of protein than a T-bone steak/Jason Bacaj, Bozeman Chronicle. More here.

Question: Have you ever chewed snuff?
