A form of tobacco that is not smoked, but that sits in the mouth. There is Chew and Dip. Chew is moist leaves of tobacco in a bag that is put into the user's cheek and chewed. Dip is a more find ground tobacco that comes in small cans and has many different flavors such as wintergreen, straight, mint, cherry, vanilla, peach, etc and can be in many different varieties such as long cut, fine cut, snus, and possible more that I'm not aware of. Dip is put in, most commonly, the bottom lip. Spit from both Chew and Dip should not be swallowed. Spit from both is normally dark brown.
