Candy Cigarettes history
 
There is evidence that the candy makers actually worked with the cigarette companies to attract young smokers. To the left are some examples of packs from the 1950s. Today the are called candy sticks and the names are not the same as actual cigarette companies. [more below]

Candy Cigarettes from the 50s[continued from above]
Since you have to be at least 18 to have a credit card, we will leave it up to adults to decide how to use them. The best thing we have seen is people sending them to family and friends to encourage them to stop smoking. One customer purchased several cases and passed out packs to celebrate his one year anniversary of not smoking. The picture to the left shows how candy cigarettes looked in the 1950s.

 
My favorite candy memory would have to be candy cigarettes. I remember hanging out with my best friend across the street when we were about 8 or 9. We would always want to act cool and be with the older guys on our street who always used to smoke cigarettes.
 
Well there was no way me and my friend were going to start smoking, we both had bad asthma and could never touch the stuff (or ever want too). We would then always walk down the street with as much change we could find under our couches to the candy store and buy boxes of candy cigarettes. We felt so cool. Looking back now, I don't know why I ever wanted to hang out with people like that, but at the time it felt good to feel like that, and in a weird way, that candy gave us confidence.
 
My grandfather was a heavy smoker too, and later lost his life to lung cancer, but whenever he saw me with those candy cigarettes, he told me and my friend to stick with the candy, not the real stuff. that has always stayed with me. ~ Steven from Pennsylvania

We lived in a small town in the 40's. Nothing was like a bunch of friends going to spend our nickles and dimes on candy at our little market. We'd all get our favorites and go to the park to eat it. I'd pass around my pack of cigarettes and we'd all sit there pretending to smoke them, till the taste got to us. Then they disappeared, leaving the tell-tale white powder on our lips. I can still remember the sweet spicy taste of my first cigarettes. ~Jennie from California

My brother and I used to stash a box of candy cigarettes in our backpacks along with a favorite stuffed animal and a few pencils. The best time to eat them was on a cold winter day when we could see our breath hanging on the air. I distinctly remember a frigid January morning out by the flagpole in front of my elementary school, passing around candy cigarettes to friends. We would practice holding the thin white candy sticks between two fingers and exhale "smoke." It's amazing I never became a real smoker. Maybe I got it all out of my system in third grade; after all, actual cigarettes taste terrible by comparison. ~Jessica from Missouri

My Uncle Bill always kept candy cigarettes on hand in an end table drawer....we always made a bee line for that drawer as soon as we walked in the door. I recently ordered some from you, along with the bubblegum candy cigarettes and both arrived fresh and very tasty. Just as good as I remember them. Your service was prompt, and the items were well packed to prevent breakage. I will order from you again! ~Warren from Ohio
