A blend of dark-fired and one-sucker tobacco and a cased cigar type tobacco are cut to obtain a shredded product. After the addition of water and a binder, the resultant mixture is heated, dried and then pelletized into individual discrete pellets. Various additives can be added prior to or during pelletizing. The pellets are sized to give the user the desired taste and flavor of a conventional smokeless tobacco.
