Nothing sweet on this candy

Nicefood manufactures this cigarette candy

My favorite isle in the grocery is the sweets section.  While going through different products, I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw these candy cigarettes!

The idea of a five-year-old pretending to smoke these sweets makes me angry.  Manufactured by Nicefoods, I wonder if the business owners have kids, because manufacturing them as sweets  have an underlying context:  A subliminal consent that smoking is good.

Candy Cigarettes were introduced in the early 20th century. It is plausible that these candies can influence children to smoke when they are older because  later in the 70s, countries like the U.S., Canada, Ireland, Norway, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia have already banned selling these candy cigarettes ( read here).  Sadly, we have yet to realize the effects of these cigarette sweets to kids.
