Sweet Cigarettes – Shurely Shome Mishtake
I came across these sweet cigarettes,
in our local Spar shop on Sunday.
Maybe I’m out of touch with children’s sweets but I haven’t seen anything like this,
since my dad ran a sweet shop in Artane (Dublin) in the 1970s (when everybody smoked).
Given the common knowledge that cigarette companies sales are in terminal decline and as a result they are targetting younger and younger demographics, isn’t it somewhat irresponsible to be selling such lifelike cigarette sweets?
(Conspiracy theorists can ponder the fact the Ferton France SA who manufacture these sweets have no website to speak off, they couldn’t possibly have links to big tobacco, could they? Who knows?)
