Possible cigarette variation?

Hey smokers,

Back in the day when I worked at a gas station, stocking cigarettes was a main duty. One night I got looking at all the different variations. Regular, light, ultra light, menthol, filter, non-filter, 120, soft, box, etc. Then I got to thinking about which variation is NOT here. So this is what I came up with.

A full flavor menthol, 120, non-filter in the flip top soft pack.

Marlboro has color coded their packs with the familiar red for full flavor, gold for light and green for menthol. My design would be black.

Do we have a winner or is this variation just bad?

Flip top soft pack? Ummm how is that going to work in a shirt pocket or purse?

The black sounds like a cool idea. You can put a coffin on it with a skeleton. And you can get insurance companies to sponsor this project by putting their phone numbers on the side next to the warning.

The same goes for unhealthy eating, driving, or living in certain places due to the asstastical AQ.

Flip top is box only, soft packs come with the foil tops you've got to peel away. As for the length, pretty much anything longer than a king comes with a filter.

I'm guessing from your idea that you just stock cigarettes and don't actually smoke them.

jonnysays420, ziemas, and chipcom will have to offer their opinions as BikeForums smokers. Black would be very sharp because it coordinates nicely with the actual color of smoker's lung tissue.

Does anybody produce an ultralight menthol? i.e. Hint o mint, full tar. The reason I ask is I see many people chewing gum and holding a coffee as they smoke.
Maybe a menthol/coffee flavor.

I smoked Kool Milds for the better part of a decade and a half. Full tar/ half menthol is actually a "mild". A "light" or "ultra-light" refers to the tar level, "mild" refers to the level of menthol.

As for the flavored, I'm pretty sure that Kool tried something like that recently but got all kinds of static for trying to make smoking appeal to young kids.

I want to market a 200 or something. Friggin' ten inch long cigarette.

I bet people would buy it, thinking it's two for the price of one or something.

I would laugh all the way to the bank and hell. But the bank first.

Ooh. I forwarded this to a friend and he replied that dealers have been soaking pot in liquid crack for years. This is to hook young pot smokers onto crack where there is more profit. Abandon ship.

I rarely smoke anymore. Back in the day I'd do a pack of these a day.

I still like them, but I don't plan a ride for the day after I have one.

About a year ago, I found a flyer in town for something like that. It was supposedly made by "Indians" (the native American kind) and was pretty much just wrapped tobacky without all of the crud. I never investigated any further (I don't smoke), and I've since forgotten the name, but it seemed like an interesting idea. If you're going to smoke anyway, you may as well do it on your own terms. Beats letting the big tobacco companies have their way with the chemicals and the addictiveness and the hoy glaven.

+1

Dump the cigs and don't try to help others kill themselves slowly by inventing new ones.

What, and no chemicals? That would be no fun.
