Grinds Coffee Pouches Review – Alternative to Dipping Tobacco

Coffee, the great energizer! I can’t even begin to remember how many mornings I have had where my eyes could barely open, I could barely function, all until I took that first refreshing sip of steaming, rich coffee.

The buzz you get from coffee – the energy, the alertness, and the refreshment – that’s just something else, and if you are a coffee drinker, you’ll know what I’m talking about! Did you know you can get a coffee buzz in another way, too? Learn more in this Grinds Coffee Pouches review.

Some people also get a buzz from chewing tobacco – they say it gives them the same energy and alertness, and they like the feeling of chewing on something and the flavor slowly releasing into their mouth and into their body.

However, chewing tobacco has proven health risks. I’m sure you are already aware of them, but here is a refresher(Source: Medicine Net):

  • Your body absorbs more nicotine from chewing tobacco than from smoking
  • Tobacco contains other potent carcinogens(cancer causing substances)
  • Chewing tobacco is a leading factor in mouth cancer and other cancers
  • Chewing tobacco also causes gum diseases and tooth loss

There was a time when chewing tobacco was an ingrained part of culture – spittoons were commonplace items designed specifically for patrons to spit chewing tobacco into.

As the health risks for tobacco became clearer over time, there has been an increased downtrend in tobacco use. Some people still use it, though – and it was and still is common among professional baseball players.

That’s where Grinds Coffee Pouches come in.

How Grinds Coffee Pouches came about

The story on Grinds’ website is that two college roommates were tired, and when they could not find anything to give them a shot of energy, they improvised in true student style and chewed some coffee grounds they found, similar to how they had seen ball players chew tobacco.

The grounds gave them a boost of energy, and an idea for a product.

Grinds coffee pouches found success when the San Francisco Giants started using their product, and pretty soon, their idea spread throughout the MLB, since this was a healthier alternative to tobacco which still gave a nice boost of energy.

Cost breakdown

The health benefits of chewing grinds coffee pouches are obvious – you’re getting the jolt and focus you need without the risk of any nasty carcinogens.

Each can of Grinds contains around 18 sachets that could last you anywhere from 2 to several hours. The cans contain a neat little compartment on top where you could store a sachet that you are done partially with, so you don’t have to waste the rest of it anytime you remove it from your mouth.

On their website, you can pick up 6 cans of Grinds pouches for $22. That’s 6 x 18 or 108 pouches, working out to 22/108 or $0.20 per pouch.

A 6 can pack of chewing tobacco is $18 on Tough Guy Chew. The price difference between healthier, safer coffee and harmful tobacco is not that much – so not only does the coffee chew make health sense, it makes financial sense, too.

The greater volume you buy of Grinds, the cheaper it’ll be for you. You could also opt in for a weekly subscription for 10% off the purchase price. From their website, shipping over $29 to the USA is free, too.

What flavors do Grinds Pouches come in?

Grinds Coffee Pouches has a few different flavor offerings:

  • A 6 pack sampler with their best flavors: Mocha, Cinnamon Roll, Peppermint, Vanilla, Caramel, and Mint Chocolate
  • Or you could pick up the same flavors: Mocha, Caramel, Cinnamon Roll, Irish Cream, Mint Chocolate, Peppermint, Black Coffee, Vanilla, Wintergreen, and Mocha Decaf

Mint Chocolate tastes like Andes mint chocolates or Girl Scout Thin Cookies

Caramel tastes like a caramel latte

Cinnamon Roll tastes like a sip of coffee after a bite of a cinnamon roll

Mocha tastes like a strong, bold coffee with a hint of chocolate

Peppermint tastes like a strong peppermint latte without any sugar or sweetener

Vanilla tastes like a vanilla latte with just a touch of sweetness

You simply place the pouch between your teeth and your cheek, and let the juices slowly flow into your mouth. You can either spit out the saliva for a slower caffeine boost, or you can swallow them for a faster effect. The pouches are not meant to be swallowed.

The caffeine in Grinds will help curb your nicotine cravings, so if you are actively trying to quit tobacco, Grinds is a great place to start.

First off, as listed above, the caffeine can help curb nicotine cravings, and you’ll get the same chewing sensation as you would in tobacco.

Grinds also contains the same ingredients that you would find in most energy drinks:

Coffee, Water, Glycerin, Caffeine, Taurine, Guarana, B-Vitamins, Sodium Benzoate (to assure flavor), and other Natural and Artificial Flavors.
