Sunday Funnies – Kids Cartoon Candy Cigarettes

Funny look at some seriously bad marketing of cand cigarettes to kids under the guise of “Candy Sticks”.

   Everybody knows that any smoking at all is not good for your body. So it was a pretty major marketing blunder when someone got the bright idea to put famous cartoon characters on candy cigarettes. Having kids associate Spider-Man with smoking is maybe not the best thing for good ol’ Spidey’s image. Okay, they’re calling them “candy sticks” but we all know they’re just re-packaged candy cigarettes.    

   Of course the tobacco industry is huge and rich. I gotta admit, I “smoked” a pack or two of candy cigarette’s when I was a kid and it never turned me into a smoker. Still, it makes you wonder what the repercussions of those sweet little “candy sticks” were…

   Here’s a funny look at some seriously stupid marketing.
