Now I'm having a nic fit. I used to bum those exact cigarettes at the homosexual social establishments and dance revues I frequented in the early nineties.

They aren't bad, but I prefer the brown mint-flavored (not menthol) kinds.

I can't believe I still have opinions about smokes.

See, all my years of product ingraining would lead me to believe that each color represents a different flavor, and I know I'd be sorely disappointed if I ever tried any of those. "This tastes like... tobacco!"

Perusing the site a bit further, I see Nat Sherman has a real hard-on for the mint variety.

That's because they ARE NOT MENTHOL!

Yeah, the colors don't have different flavors. Unless you suffer from synesthesia or something.

Hmn.

So . . . wait. What's the point of the color? Do you draw with them or something?

The point is ... to be fashionable?

There really isn't any other reason for the color, and that's what gets me. It's all for show!

Maybe it's meant to get people to ask "HAY IS THAT BANANA FLAVORED" or something but I'm pretty sure that doesn't happen in fancy, swanky, high-society galas.

I have only ever seen those things smoked by drag queens and my beloved mad Valium-addled bibliophile Aunt Carol.
