Im hoping someone might know whether or not they sell dip or chewing tabacco in Europe? I can always bring it but if they have it i could just get it there or try something new. I know the have cigarettes but i dont smoke so i dont need them. Any help would be appreciated.

The answer to your question is YES, they do sell chewing tabacco in Europe, most smoke shops should sell it, if they don't then a cigar shop should. I tried to find some specific shops for you, but all I found were anti-chewing tabacco sites...since they are from Europe, then they must be fighting against something right?? So it must be there in the stores like it is here.

I would recommend you bring some with ya, should be allowed a certain amount on your person when you go over. It will be less at home, tabacco in any form is VERY expencive in Europe.

you might want to consider picking up some in Duty Free, Im not sure on the chew but I know a carton of Marllboro will run about 15 bucks (usd) at least thats what Ive paid depending on the destination in that past, and that is pretty damn cheap.

Just a thought

Well i thought id post this for the record even though i doubt many will care Dip and or chewing tobacco is very hard to come across no one i talked to in amsterdam or munich had ever seen a can of dip or even heard of it but they were pretty curious about it a girl almost put some in and i talked some really cool guys we met from new zealand into trying some but they said "Its giving me a head rush man!" then they started yelling they couldnt get it out of their mouth a pretty good laugh for my buddy and I, However the bartender in paris said he thought he had seen something like it in smokeshops there but we never got the chance to look so oh well maybe next time, I do know they sell it in Iraq though b/c my friend in the military recently brought back and Iraqi can of Skoal. Yeah dipping is for dirtbags I know
