Critics are up in arms over the latest innovation from the good people of the tobacco industry: chewable tobacco that looks like candy. Orbs Dissolvable Tobacco is being test marketed in Portland and looks like a box of mints but has more nicotine than a cigarette.
The new product is the brainchild of R.J. Reynolds Tobacco and comes in a little box that looks like mints.
The American Cancer Society has denounced the product, but R.J. Reynolds insists that it has a warning label to discourage the use by children.
I am personally looking forward to the Nicotine Jawbreaker and the Tobacco Sucker.
Not to be outdone, there is now a caffeinated Snickers bar.
