Real Candy Cigarettes

Candy cigarettes with nicotine
(+1, -1)

They would reduce smoking related fires and burns, annoyed people that hate second hand smoke, black lungs, cigarette butt trash, and you can still have something sticking out of your mouth to fit in with the "smoking club" crowd. By the way... not for children. You would purchase the same way as normal cigarettes.

Eclipse vape cigs [disbomber, Apr 05 2005]


       I think candy cigs are, to some extent, made to help curb oral fixations, so I think adding nicotine just makes them addictive too.

       And the kids love it!

       [snarfy] seems more like Eccentric Tobacco.   

       Anyway, I'm fairly certain this is baked, but a googling is pending, so (-+) for now.

       The biggest!

       Googling yeilds nothing pertinent.   

       Also, 'Lil' Tobaccy and the Nickateen Gang' could make for good marketing.

       This method only eliminates the negative effects, it doesnt reduce or start anyone smoking. it only gives people what they actually smoke for: The nicotine- the effects of the drug. a replacement for the inefficient current cigarette.

       Baked--chocolate cigarettes. You can buy them at county fairs. No nicotine, but hey, it's chocolate. Who needs nicotine?

       Camel has a cigarette out called the Eclipse, which vaporises (heats) instead of burning the tobacco. No ash, no lingering smell or visible staining, second-hand smoke reduced by 80%, and less risk of smoking-related diseases. See link.   

       (They're still Camels, though--yuck!)

       Mini mart cigarettes with five or ten nicotine gum "candy cigarettes" per pack. The person might be more likely to quit and the pack might be cheaper ($4 instead of $5), attracting interest. Also; 1/2 as much tobacco inhalation risk if they use it regularly . The paper on the candy cigarettes would be rice paper so peeling it off would be unnecessary. I do not smoke, and am opposed to tobacco use, so I do not know if this is like swapping out soup with diet pepsi or something.

       I never would've thought a tobacco company would have promoted vaping a decade before it was cool.
