Many media articles are writing about this fairly new way -- it has been around for several years, but has yet to caught on, although tobacco companies are trying their best -- to use tobacco: dissolvable tobacco products.
Dissolvable tobacco products consist of is very finely milled tobacco that is pressed into shapes, such as tablets and sticks, which slowly dissolve in the mouth of a user. Many of them look similar to candy.
Tobacco companies promote these dissolvable tobacco products because they are losing customers in the United States, Australia, and other developed countries where the dangers of smoking cigarettes are well known and documented, and where many no-smoking laws restrict their use in public buildings and other locations.
However, cigarette companies are still touting dissolvable tobacco products as an alternative to smoking cigarettes, because smoking bans are springing up all over the world.
In addition, non-smokers increasingly do not tolerate the dangers of second-hand smoke (having a smoker smoke near a nonsmoker) and third-hand smoke (tobacco smoke that remains in furniture, carpet, and other objects) at work places and at home.
The dissolvable tobacco products include Camel Orbs, Camel Strips, and Camel Sticks -- in mint and other flavors.
