William's Blog...with a smile!


It is a trip down Memory lane...

My how things have changed.

Things that we more socially accepted are now frowned upon.

Things not good for you today were marketed by people saying it was their choice.

Now days we are being told what to eat, not eat drink and cleanse ourselves in.

So, my question is...do you remember?

Good morning William,

Yes I remember those as well as stealing a Chesterfield from my Mother and later wondering why!

Make yourself an astonishing day.

I remember as a kid I loved them because I thought it was so "adult" to have cigarettes William Feela

Yep, I remember candy cigarettes, and I also remember when we had toy guns!

I do remember Bill and can still find these at a local store here that has vintage candies and such. It reminds me of a much simpler time!

Oh yeah, it was cool to look like you had a cigarette.  Not anymore!

The candy cigarettes were sold at school during recess. I give them in about 5th grade and been cigarette free since.

Good luck and success.

Good morning William.  You bet I do, I wonder how many kids really took up the habit because of them...

William, Yes, I am that old. I do remember them and I used to pretend to smoke them. They had the bubble gum variety as well – and the first puff or two “out” on the bubble gum cigs would look like smoke was coming out. At least it did to me as a kid!

These are still available in some specialty candy stores.  Years ago some Dr. endorsed different brands

Posted by Vern Eaton, Realtor 651-674-7449 almost 5 years ago

Yes I remember these. We have a store in Grand Junction that sells vintage candy and you can still get them there. I did like the candy cigs. Really I didn't care about being cool. I liked to eat them.

Yes Bill, I do remember putting away many packs of these treats when I was young.
