The article provides information about the new product, the Snap-on Spittoon from DipTops LLC. It has been crafted for smokeless tobacco users. The product snaps on to the top of virtually any standard beverage can, becoming a spill-resistant personal spittoon for tobacco waste. Its patent-pending cantilevered funnel allows free flow into the can, but prevents flow out, even if tipped over. The sturdy, plastic DipTops minimize odor and are dish-washer friendly and easy to use. The product is available to retailers in a 20-unit display box.
