English term or phrase: dipping snuff, to dip snuff
Also on the cool list is smokeless tobacco. ***Snuff*** and chewing tobacco are made up of a mixture of tobacco, sweeteners and salts. They contain habit forming nicotine and hundreds of chemicals that are poisonous to the body.
Chewing tobacco means putting a big size wad between the cheek and the teeth and sucking on it. ***Dipping snuff*** means placing a pinch between the lower cheek and teeth where it mixes with saliva.
