Over the years, many of our customers have used flavored toothpicks to help them quit smoking and chewing tobacco. So how do flavored toothpicks block cravings? They can be effective for two primary reasons:
First, of course, is the flavor. In cinnamon toothpicks for example, the potent, long-lasting flavor of spicy cinnamon helps to satisfy the flavor urge one gets who has become accustomed to frequent doses from cigarettes, snuff, or chew. Moreover, it's commonly reported that the flavor of cinnamon helps to mitigate the craving for nicotine itself. Second, is the oral fixation. For many chronic tobacco users, part of their dependence is associated with the need for continual stimulation of the mouth. The hand-to-mouth motion and oral activity involved with using toothpicks helps to satisfy this fixation. Together, these two attributes make flavored toothpicks an effective tobacco substitute.
Another useful aspect of flavored toothpicks is their convenience and ease of use. When it comes to cravings, there can be a multitude of triggers. Some folks have got to have a cigarette after meals. Some have to light up every time they have a drink; or when they're stressed, or relaxed, or bored, and so on. Daily life can be full of such triggers. With flavored toothpicks, one can alleviate cravings and reduce stress anywhere and anytime, without the restrictions of tobacco (such as no smoking indoors).
- Managing Flavor - Whether you prefer extreme flavor or something more subtle, achieving the desired potency of your flavored toothpick is simple. This is especially important with spicy hot cinnamon toothpicks. Since the flavor is evenly absorbed in the wood, biting gently into the toothpick will release a fresh burst. So when and only when you want a stronger taste, chew the toothpick.
- Holding a Toothpick - When you've got a flavored toothpick in your mouth, it's a good idea to hold the pick with your teeth, and less so with your lips. Your teeth will secure the object and allow you to periodically chew for more flavor, while avoiding excessive exposure of cinnamon to your lips.
- Flip Your Pick - When you're done with the business end of a toothpick, don't toss it. Flip it over and enjoy renewed flavor on the other side.
- Safety - Always apply safe practices when using a toothpick.

First off, thank y'all! Thank you to whoever had the idea of making a toothpick pack a lot of punch to help a 16 year long dipper decide to finally stop dipping. I ordered a pack of the spicy cinnamon ones that came in today and I ain't put a pinch in since! I actually prefer the bit of tingling while using this product, and I've yet to split the pick in half if I bite down it. I'll be distributing a pack to each one of my employees who dips in the office. We'll kick big tobacco in the balls one toothpick at a time! Just wanted to say "thank you" again for making such a great and solid product!" - Evan D.
