Yes I do remember. We used to walk around as kids, with candy cigarettes in our mouth, pretending we were cool.
For the record, I now smoke real cigarettes and have done for the past 25+ years.

I sure remember them, and they did have common cigarettes names such as Pall Mall, (red package) Lucky Strike, Carlton, and a few other brands.

I do. They were always so disappointing--they didn't really "smoke" that well, and then the candy or gum or whatever it was wasn't very good.

I remember those. Never got me to smoke real cigarettes, though.

Yep, also gum cigars.

I also mail ordered smoking monkeys from a comic book.

I can still buy them at the gas station up the road.

If they really wanted them to emulate the real thing, they'd make them cost a fortune.

Yes eating those candy cigarettes how I remember

I remember little red packs of Popeye brand candy cigarettes. They were white, hard candy with a red tip. I also remember black licorice pipes and cigars with red candy sprinkles for the lit end.

I don't know when they stopped selling them. They were around in the 1960s and '70s.

Yes. I'm looking for when they will have a roll your own kind.

Yes, I was just thinking about them yesterday. There seem to be a lot of teen smokers in the town where I work. It got me wondering how it is that I never came to be a smoker even though my parents smoked when I was little. I used to love those candy cigarettes!
