Apple Sun Cured Plug Tobacco
From Tobacco Products
Apple Sun cured Plug is a tobacco product, which is cured by the sun instead of using fire. Plug chewing tobacco is made by pressing together cured tobacco leaves in a sweet (often molasses-based) syrup. Originally this was done by hand, but since the second half of the 19th century leaves were pressed between large tin sheets. The resulting sheet of tobacco is cut into plugs. Like twist, consumers cut a piece off of the plug to chew.
