Back again this evening with a review of a new smokeless alternative product! PRO-DIP (www.pro-dip.com) is, “The world’s first 100% tobacco & nicotine free healthy supplement pouch.” PRO-DIP pouches are designed for the body to maximize its nutrient uptake and absorption in a hands-free, time-released fashion. PRO-DIP launched with six products: ION, META, VITE, RAW, CHILL and ELITE. They are all pouch products so they’re great as a smokeless alternative. All of their products contain NO NICOTINE and NO TOBACCO. The company was founded in 2015 with a small leadership team that includes coaches, athletic directors, and former NFL player Kyle Auffray.
All PRO-DIP products are 100% natural so you do NOT need to spit (but this is obviously a personal preference of the user). For a complete list of ingredients used check out PRO-DIP Ingredients over on the main site. According to their site:
PRO-DIP is an extremely innovative nutritional supplement that is the first of its kind in the industry. It is a small spitless, time-released, bottom lip pouch that secretes essential proteins, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals to the athlete while the athlete is working out as well as pre-and post bouts of exercise for increased energy / mental focus and muscle recovery.
That’s all well and good, but how is is for someone who’s looking to use these products as a smokeless alternative? Let’s get into it.
First off, a couple of general non-flavor specific things about PRO-DIP. They are all pouch products that are spitless. If you want to spit you certainly can but you’re not going to get yourself sick if you don’t. They come in metal “tins” about the size of a Tic Tac container. Each tin contains 12 pouches and each “serving size” is one pouch (though I always use at least two when testing flavors). I put together this quick video to give you a peak at the packaging.
With those general thoughts out of the way let’s get into some more flavor specific thoughts.
PRO-DIP ION (Energy + Focus) Review
Flavor – Tropical Fruit
This is their “energy & focus” product. Great flavor here. Got a real Blueberry / Fruit Punch thing going on which I can only describe as “refreshing”. Now that I think about it it reminds me a little bit of a Hubba Bubba Chewing Gun flavor from way back in the day. And that’s a very good thing. As I’m working the pouches in my mouth I really do have to stop myself from swallowing the pouch itself. This product contains ingredients derived from milk and soy.
PRO-DIP META (Antioxidants)
Flavor – Acai Berry
This is their “antioxidants” product for the immune system, cellular health, anti-inflammatory and metabolism. Getting a purple – blue spit here and I got some berry “dust” when opening the can. These cans are actually sort of a pain to not only get the initial wrapping off but also to get the first pouch out. I had to dig in with my pinky to get the first one out. After that no big deal. Simply OUTSTANDING flavor here but doesn’t feel like it’s going to last quite as long as ION. I’m really forgetting to even spit the taste is so good.
PRO-DIP VITE (Multivitamin)
Flavor – Orange
This one is listed as “multivitamin” for repair, bone health, cardio health and endurance. Wow… another great flavor. This one is straight up Orange Tang which is a very good thing. It’s really got a “bite” to it but not in the traditional tobacco sense. More like a tingling sensation which is very nice. The flavor I’m getting is as if i put too much Tang into a glass and I’m drinking that sludge when you get to the bottom of the glass. Don’t take that description as a bad thing. It’s just the best way I can describe the intense orange flavor here. This product contains ingredients derived from milk and soy.
PRO-DIP RAW (Protein)
Flavor – Watermelon
This is the “protein” variety for recovery and muscle building. I’m totally getting the watermelon flavors coming through after popping in a couple of pouches. Reminds me of that Pink Bubbalicious Bubble Gum or perhaps Big League Chew.This product contains ingredients derived from milk and soy.
PRO-DIP ELITE (Beta Alanine + Energy)
Flavor – Pomegranate
Listed as the “pre-workout” variety for energy and performance boost. Good flavor coming through here but probably the least “intense” of the bunch. I’m not typically a big pomegranate fan but the berry undertones offset the pomegranate flavor so it’s not super overpowering. I have a feeling that this may be one that would grow on me over time but at least for this initial review this would be my least favorite. This product contains ingredients derived from milk and soy.
PRO-DIP CHILL (Relaxation + Sleep)
Flavor – Honey
This “relaxation” product is for sleep, relaxation (duh) and recovery. The honey flavor comes bursting through here to the point where you’d swear there is real honey inside the pouch. Reminds me of the bottom of a cup of coffee or tea that you’ve flavored with honey. Nice and smooth and really does give you the flavor of real honey. Almost coats your throat with the honey. This truly would be a great one right before bed.
PRO-DIP is an outstanding entry into the world of smokeless alternatives. If you’re looking for traditional smokeless tobacco flavors (wintergreen, mint, straight) you’re not going to find it here, but what you will find is some pretty intense and robust flavors in a pouch product that doesn’t fall apart and has some good longevity. The fact that they are actually nutritional supplements means they’re made to be spitless as well which is nice. I always prefer two pouches for an extra flavor boost, but these are pouches that you can keep in all day long and no one will be the wiser.
You can get all six flavors from the PRO-DIP website at www.pro-dip.com. They’re sold in six packs for $30 (plus shipping & handling). They also offer a multi-flavor sampler pack where you can get one tin of each flavor.
Special thanks to Kyle Auffray from PRO-DIP for providing me samples to try and review.
