I was out getting summer plants and beach chairs when I happened on this old school summer favorite:
Candy cigarettes! Yup they still make that. I’m old enough to recall puffing these flavorless sticks of sugar after our trips to the candy store in Orleans on Cape Cod. That was long ago enough to suprise me when I saw they still make these gateway snacks.
Sure the work cigarettes is gone, but the box, complete with european union style tax stamp at the top let’s kids know its still cool to smoke ’em if you got ’em.
Love it? Hate It? Share It!
