Get Grinds on the Shark Tank Show
Coffee Chewing Tobacco - Season 4, Episode 413, week 15
A 100% Nicotine Free Alternative sounds like a Great Idea. Not that an excessive amount of caffeine from the coffee grounds would be good for you, but a caffeine habit is much better than a nicotine addiction. Actually, one Get Grinds pouch also known as fake chew contains the equivalent of only 1/4 cup of coffee. It's not just caffeine that gives you the added boost but other energy boosting ingredients as well.
they've essentially married two separate product's in a rather unique form. The Get Grinds Coffee Pouches is a perfect alternative to chewing tobacco with 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 spit. In Fact, it's encouraged not to spit because you gain more of the energy boosting ingredients by swallowing. No Kidding! You are essentially brewing the flavored coffee in your mouth. The only thing you need to spit out is the pouch when you're done.
Will the Sharks get into the Smokeless Tobacco/ Energy Boosting Business?
It sure seems like a good business idea to me. Especially the concept of joining to separate products and creating a Brand New Market. Personally, I've never heard of chewing coffee grounds as an alternative to chewing tobacco, but a quick search revealed there's already competition starting to sprout up. Most of the Sharks like unique patented product's that limit the competition, and this may pose a problem. On the other hand, this Brand as THE alternative to chewing tobacco and also as an alternative for energy drinks could have an enormous amount of potential. To help build this Brand as the alternative to chewing tobacco, they went to the sport most publicizes this not so good habit, the Major League Baseball Teams. The Get Grinds Tobacco is now available in 20 of the 30 teams clubhouses. Yes, that sounds like an excellent recommendation and one you can build a Brand around.
Just like anyone that's addicted to anything whether it's caffeine, nicotine or just jumping out of a perfectly good airplane, they'll always come back for more. It's also a proven fact when you stop one addiction, it's 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 quickly become a great substitute. A product they 'll continue to keep buying for years to come.
