REMEMBER THESE?

candy cig display  

candy-cigarettes-bowl

Candy cigarettes were first introduced in the early 20th century They were
made out of chalky sugar, bubblegum or chocolate, and wrapped in paper
to resemble real cigarettes. They have long been controversial because
many critics believe the candy leads children to become smokers later in
life. Because of this, the selling of candy cigarettes has been banned
in several countries such as Finland, Norway, the Republic of Ireland,
Turkey and Saudi Arabia.The state of North Dakota enacted a ban on
candy cigarettes from 1953 until 1967.

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.
