    7-Eleven Adds Diptops Tobacco Accessories

    Hundreds of the convenience chain's East Coast stores test the personal spittoon for moist snuff.

    DUBLIN, Calif. -- More than 600 7-Eleven convenience stores located in Delaware, Maryland, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia will add DipTops LLC’s patented moist smokeless tobacco (MST) DipTop accessory to their merchandising sets this month, the vendor stated.

    The DipTops accessory snaps onto 8-, 12- and 16-ounce beverage cans, and creates a disposable, portable spill-resistant spittoon, according to the company.

    "MST users seem to be a little more adventurous than the average cigarette smoker or cigar smoker, so they’ll want to try something new that fits with their lifestyle," Phil Oftedahl, merchandise support manager for 7-Eleven's Chesapeake division, said in a statement. "We sell a lot of moist smokeless tobacco, and we also sell a lot of cans of energy drinks, soft drinks and other beverages, so it’s a natural fit."
