Should/would/can/do you eat and/or drink when you are using snus? I guess portion is easier to use simultaneously....

I read about a Finnish guys who had problems (or died, I can't remember) because he swallowed too much snus 'juice', which is harmful for you if digested. Any opinions/views?

I don't have any trouble drinking with loose snus in place, but eating can be a problem. The excess saliva from eating tends to make the snus get too wet and hard to keep in place. So generally when I eat I don't use snus. But it's nice to use some after a good meal and relax with a coffee!

I can drink with snus but I try to keep my mouth semi open so as not to get my snus wet. Sometimes this results in a bit of my drink to run along my face though.
Somehow seems to work much better when I've had a couple of beers Wink

Yeh, my drinking + snus technique is yet to be refined to a normal standard of drinking etiquette! I think I prefer just doing it on it's own, I hate the taste of the 'juice'... I can always take it out and put it back in again (although not to the original effect) if I need to eat/drink.

I can and do drink with snus, portions or loose. I will not even attempt to eat with it... of course I would never smoke while I ate either. I like tobacco before, after, and in between meals.

I can drink with snus just fine, just tighten your lip around it so it doesn't get soaked and disintigrate, but I don't know about eating.

Drinking is okay, but drink and being drunken not. If I am too drunken I cant hold it anymore, so that I start swallowing, although I dont really recognize it. That can have a bad end.. lol Laughing

Pay attention with alc, lol,

cheers,
Tobi

I have no problems with drinking or eating while having snus in my mouth. I do it occasionally. But I love to use snus after eating. It gives me more pleasure when I just ate! It have a relaxing effect, so if you're chillin' with a movie or just relaxing. Using snus after eating, priceless!

i ate for the first time with snus. it was only chocolate and it went down ok. i will still not use snus while eat a meal, its not worth the hassle i think. i love my food, and snus, but i enjoy them seperately.

i think the combination of snus and different drinks is a blast to try.

personally, a Mocca Mandarin and a Rum and Coke are excellent together. I think the Catch Dry Eucalyptus and Mountain Dew make a great combination.

tobacco and alcohol... 2 great tastes that taste great together!

I generally use a straw to drink out of when I am snusing and drinking at the same time - that way I can pass the snus when I stick the straw far enough in my mouth.

Like others here, I love Snus after a meal - especially after lunch or dinner - Ettan White Pouches are my fave after a meal.

One time I forgot about a mini-pouch Goteborg Rape was in my mouth, and begin eating a hot dog - the Snus pouch got chewed up and I thought I just hit all the peppers and spices in the world. Surprised

According to Dr. Brad Rodu (which has studies Snus extensively and even in Sweden), the worst health hazard when swallowing the juices can be an upset stomach; but the stomach adjusts.

Just do a google search for "Brad Rodu" if you want to learn alot about the ill effects of smoking (cigarettes or whatever) and that Snus is 98% less hazardous than smoking. He has a web site at:

Amen! I like the more straight tobacco Snus after eating, which so far I found favor with is Ettan pouches. The other brands I save for in between.

I did like CatchDry Vanilla and Coffee with my coffee, though. Cool
