ArcadianRefugee: R J Reynolds should start selling cigarettes in tins (like Altoids).

I actually had one of these many years ago. It was put to a different use later.

For a brief while in the '90s they did as a special deal.

And these are currently out (or were a year or 2 ago).

xanadian: ByOwlLight: Man, I miss gum cigarettes and Big League Chew.  I have stupidly fond memories tied directly to both of them.

I had Big League Chew, plus those candy cigarettes. And, of course, because I had both of those candies, I now chaw and smoke 3 packs a day. I should be dying of lung cancer any day now.


I also had both as a kid. But I do smoke and chew. I'm sure that my family being a bunch of addicts had nothing to do with it. It's not like every single one of my relatives smoked, chewed, or both (except for my dad strangely enough). Nor the long line of alcoholics and drug abusers. It couldn't be any of that nope all the candies fault.

So, it's the packaging that's offensive?

R J Reynolds should start selling cigarettes in tins (like Altoids). We can have cigars individually wrapped like candy bars. Or just redo cigarette boxes like those of Nerds (all colorful and with a single exit point).
