...For Manly Men

I don't condone smoking, but if you must smoke, smoke Machismo... For Manly Men!
These candy cigarettes have been in my office for a while now. I think my wife gave them to me. For some reason, they caught my eye tonight and I decided it deserved a photograph. Hope your week is going well!

  1. An unusual name and image for candy cigarettes. Must have been around for a while.

  3. I remember getting candy cigarettes like these. Then they made gum the actual size of a cigarette and put powdered sugar in the ends. That way when you pulled out a "cigarette" out of your gum box (that also looked like a box of cigarettes) and put it in your mouth, you could blow "smoke" out of it. Looking back on that now... someone should have been fired! :/

  5. I think your wife probably just liked the picture of the saguaro cactus with the big bluff in the background (plus the picture is funny, too). You should put this in your Jeep. They would make you look "tough." ha ha

  6. Candy cigarettes were all over when I was a kid. Not politically correct any more in certain circles.
