Says here Philip Morris USA will debut "a new, spitless, smokeless tobacco product" in a couple of months, to jumpstart its declining cigarette biz. And, lucky us, the DFW will be the petri dish in which Philip Morris tests its new product, which bears a most appetizing moniker: Marlboro Snus, described in the company's release on Friday as a pouch of finely ground tobacco combined with strips bearing such "flavors" as Rich, Mild, Mint, Spice and Feet, one of which I just made up. From the release: "Philip Morris USA will introduce Marlboro Snus in the Dallas/Fort Worth area in August to understand adult smoker acceptance of this new product." Because shit in your mouth tastes so much better when its 104 degrees. --Robert Wilonsky
