(NewsUSA) – Summertime means outdoor barbecues, baseball games and time at the beach or pool. Outdoor activities are plentiful and often, but for the 9 million smokeless tobacco users, they can present a conundrum.
One of the problems for smokeless tobacco users is the unsightly, telltale “spit cup.” For one, it can make others uneasy seeing a clear bottle sitting in a car, by the beach chair or on the deck in the backyard, never mind prompting uncomfortable conversation. Carrying a large chew-ing tobacco spittoon doesn’t seem like a viable option either, nor does using a dip cup, which could spill and make a mess that can be challenging to clean up, depending on where the spill occurs.
So, what’s a smokeless tobacco user to do this summer?
According to Everett Dickson, CEO of FLASR, an Atlanta-based tobacco accessory producer (OTCQB: FLSR), this scenario is just one of the many reasons his company created the portable spittoon.
“The small size of the FLASR portable tobacco flask allows users to enjoy smokeless tobacco unobtrusively in public without unwanted attention,” said Dickson. “Whether you are fishing, at-tending an outdoor sporting event, heading to your company’s picnic or enjoying a ballgame, FLASR is great for a variety of summer activities.”
According to its website, the company’s new 4-ounce pocket spittoon is designed to allow users to open and shut it with just one hand, making it an ideal solution to take anywhere while providing the user with “an elegant and easy-to-use solution for taking your favorite tobacco products along wherever your travels lead you.”
For those who work or play outside more than they’re in, the FLASR — the original tobacco flask — has an advanced closing mechanism, ensuring that it stays securely closed when not in use, eliminating the risk of spills and leaks often seen with cups and bottles.
The company plans on designing variations of the product to give consumers a greater choice of design options, including but not limited to, brands of sports teams, hobbies, interests, and more. FLASR is available in 400 stores across 10 states, as well as online.
