Candy snuff....

Sadly enough, candy snuff does (or at least did) exist. I haven't seen any since the mid 80s, though. It came in what looked like a snuff tin, except it was pink and plastic. You opened up the 'tin', and there was shreds of bubble gum looking remarkably like pink tobacco. Kids in little league would take a big huge wad, chew it a bit, and then keep it in their cheek for awhile. Inevitably, this would increase salivation, and they would get to spit like their favorite ball players. Not suprisingly, kids started getting cavities from letting the sugary gum sit next to their teeth for hours at a time.

It's called Big League Chew, at least in the States.

Speaking of the States, what exactly do we call whatever they refer to as "sherbet" in England?
