Candy Cigarettes

Originally uploaded by Abe of Lincoln.
We remember American candy cigarettes from our youth, but no doubt they are long gone now. Smoking is hyper-non-PC these days, and encouraging children to smoke has been considered a no-no for a long time.

Those old American candy cigarettes couldn't hold a candle to these French ones of today. Note the realistic packaging. What great, fake brand names: "Old Toad" and "Kamikaze." And packaging them with a toy lighter (sadly, non-functional) is sheer genius. It almost makes you want to be a kid again so you could pretend to smoke them.
