Candy Cigarettes

Candy CigarettesCandy cigarettes are a candy introduced in the early 20th century made out of chalky sugar, bubblegum or chocolate, wrapped in paper as to resemble cigarettes. Their place on the market has long been controversial because many critics believe the candy desensitizes children, leading them to become smokers later in life. Because of this, the selling of candy cigarettes has been banned in several countries such as Brazil, Finland, Norway, the Republic of Ireland, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. Candy cigarettes continue to be manufactured and consumed in many parts of the world. However, many manufacturers now describe their products as candy sticks, bubble gum, or candy.

The U.S. state of North Dakota enacted a ban on candy cigarettes from 1953 until 1967. In Canada, federal law prohibits candy cigarette branding that resembles real cigarette branding, and the territory of Nunavut has banned all products that resemble cigarettes.

It was reported erroneously in 2010 that the Family Smoking and Prevention Control Act bans candy cigarettes. However, the rule bans any form of added flavoring in tobacco cigarettes other than menthol. It does not regulate the candy industry. Popeye Cigarettes marketed using the Popeye character were sold for a while and had red tips (to look like a lit cigarette) before being renamed candy sticks and being manufactured without the red tip.
