Crummles is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Question for Smokers

Which brand in the US approximates to B&H, JP Black/Blue or Rothmans in the UK?

I've tried a few out, even the US B&H taste like Marlboro.

Many Thanks

B&H is the same...even seen Rothmans...think it probably all depends on the state though.

American Spirit ain't bad if you've got to smoke....but who can afford that habit these days?

I know they are bad for ya, but luckily I can buy mine on base, usually pay around $37 for a carton of whatever I fancy, here in Canada I bought a carton of B&H, all sorts of scarey pictures on the packets and when I signed the CC receipt I almost passed out from the shock....$113 for crappy politically correct fags!! Thank goodness I am going home in 3 weeks, would have to give up my bad habit if I had to pay these crazy stupid prices!!

are you getting them on the cheap when you get home? According to my rough math you will be paying approx $111 in the UK too.

Damn, $37 a carton? They're around $80-90 a carton in MA.

I haven't chummed a fag in years because of the cost. They're fun, but they aren't that fun, but I can switch them on or off and don't have a issue with them which I suppose is lucky.

Ash, I meant 'home' as in back to Charleston, and luckily I can buy them from the US base (no tax) that is why they are so cheap.

Bob, I confess, I enjoy my bad habit, but not for the price they charge here in Canada!
