    What's actually in a Swisher Sweet?

    So, I got my hands on a "vintage" box of swisher sweets as a "gag" gift. I was looking at the side of the box and it says the following: "These cigars are predominantly natural tobacco with non-tobacco ingredients added."

    Wonder what those non-tobacco ingredients are?

    Not that I care, but I was just curious...

    I would think they're similar to a cigarette

    You may not smoke them after reading whats in them , kind of like a hot dog LOL

    probably casings and flavorings like cigs have

    and stuff to keep the burn even, cause swishers do keep a very even burn line

    I'm pretty sure the chopped up short filler is what causes the even burn line. And yeah, swishers are probably full of flavorings and all kinds of crap you don't want to be exposing yourself to.

    "Modern Marvels - Tobacco" goes over this topic in detail. Kind of disgusting actually. Worse than Heroin.

    It must be somthing like *dope*, for Swisher to account for one-third of the United States' cigar sales.

    In Manitoba (maybe all Canada) they outlawed the chemical used to make tobacco sweet. The Swishers were unchanged whereas the better tasting Captain Black Sweets changed their name to Gold and didn't taste the same. The law was passed to keep the cigars from appealing to children. Also supposedly banned flavoured cigars from being sold as singles though 7-Eleven still does sell them individually.
