I Smoked Candy Cigarettes

Well, pretended to, lol 386 People

    Oh my god I loved these!

    It could be the reason I became a smoker at 16. Lol. Probably not but I believe I did have a bit of an addiction to these cigarette shaped candies. Which reminds me would having candy for breakfast be a bad idea? No, I didn't think so.

    I bought them all the time,

    and I never became a smoker. So I guess they are not that addicting after all :P

    A Cheap Smoke.

    When I was a kid they were just five cent's a box and alway's on our candy list. We thought we were so cool blowing the white powder out like we were really smokeing and then we got to eat it. Not bad for a nickel. I should have stuck with the candy one's and saved alot of money...

    Blowing [quote] smoke [unquote]

    The most fun time to "smoke" candy cigarettes was during the cold months on my way to or from school with my friends. We would pretend to drag on them and then blow "smoke" out. They were sold with brand names of actual cigarette companies like Salem and Winston.  So we could...

    Well... I Ate Them Actually

    Now I have pre-stage emphysema. No, it's not from candy cigs, but I sure as heck could not wait to get my hands on the real deal and when I did I was puffing a couple packs a day in my teens! They were absolutely a precursor to the real thing. I will be a full year smoke free...

    Where did they go? Whoops,

    can you imagine what would happen to the poor store owner for selling those if they existed?! I can. Thank goodness they aren't around. But so much fun back then!😋

    I loved candy cigarettes

    when I was a kid and you bet I practiced "smoking" with them. Always made a point of having the end with the red pigment facing out, as that was the "lit" end and that's what a real smoker would do. The only thing better than the candy cigarette was when I got to try the real...

    Before I started smoking

    for real (when I was 13), my friends and I frequently "smoked" candy cigarettes. Most of my friends blew through the candy cigarettes to make it look like smoke coming out of the end. I, on the other hand, sucked in through them (inhaling the powdered sugar) like I was smoking...

    I remember candy cigarettes

    when i was a kid, You use to see them in almost ever store. Haven't seen them in years i suppose they quit making them or the stores quit selling them or something. I guess they thought they encourage kids to smoke or something.

    Five Going On Twenty Five.

    I can remember very clearly my first days of school.  The trees lining the avenue which led to the school gates and then to the asphalt playground.  Some of the other boys and girls I remember very well.  I remember the school building and the classroom, the wooden chairs...
