Enticing Flavored Cigarettes
Appealing to the market of emotional eaters, taste is another niche to hook new smokers.
The Black Devil Brand comes in an assortment of flavors and colors. Even the name implies you can do something “naughty” and get away with it.
The pink cigarettes are flavored with “Rose” which is one of the most appealing of fragrances in the world. The black package contains chocolate flavored death sticks, one of the most sought after tastes and foods.
By piggybacking on “Chocolate and Roses” the cigarettes mask the reality that their ingredients and harmful, toxic and can shorten one’s life. Praying on the emotions of young people to get them to pick up their first cigarette is a pretty disgusting tactic.
Especially, since younger people are the least likely to contemplate mortality and the pain associated with prolonged health problems.
