Get Grinds on the Shark Tank Show
Coffee Chewing Tobacco - Season 4, Episode 413, week 15
The two invented the Get Grinds Coffee Pouches while in college and playing baseball out in San Francisco, California as an alternative to regular chewing tobacco. By making their pouches using flavored coffee grounds and then adding the same ingredients found in energy drinks like Red Bull or the 5 Hour energy, they have essentially married two unrelated product's in a rather unique form. The Get Grinds Coffee pouches is a perfect alternative to chewing tobacco and gives you an added boost at the same time.
Another unique advantage to the get Grinds Coffee Pouches especially if you already chew tobacco, is you do not need to continually spit. In Fact, it is encouraged not to spit because you gain more of the energy boosting ingredients by swallowing your saliva. No Kidding! You are essentially brewing the flavored coffee in your mouth. The only thing you need to spit out is the pouch when your done.
Will the Sharks get into the Smokeless Tobacco/ Energy Boosting Business?
Just like anyone that's addicted to anything whether it's caffeine, nicotine or just jumping out of perfectly good airplane, they will always come back for more. It's also a proven fact that when you stop one addiction, it is usually replaced with another one. Replacing chewing tobacco that I personally think tastes like crap with flavored coffee grinds that not only smell good, but actually tastes good, could easily become a great substitute. A product that they will buy and continue to keep buying for years to come.
