Another reviewer noticed these are now made in Colombia, and sure enough, they are.
These are very, very hard and definitely don't have the same taste as the original candy. They are also aesthetically inferior to the original product - many pieces are misshapen.
Unfortunately, the wonderful candy these used to be are long gone. I will never buy these again.
These imitations are just as someone else had stated on a different set of the same cigarettes. I thought maybe since this one had better reviews, that it might be a different manufacturer selling the same cigarettes. However i was wrong. The other person is absolutely right. These cigarettes do not have that chalky texture that the originals had. Sure you may say, well isn't that a good thing. No, it is not. It wasn't like they tasted like chalk. If anyone remembers pepto-bismal and how it was the only thing you actually didn't mind taking when you were sick. You remember that flavor was very similar to the flavor of candy cigarettes. The new texture is more gooey and chewy, which just doesn't feel the same when you eat them.
The flavor was similar to wintergreen breath savers, but a little different in the originals and the new one is an off flavor of the same but just doesn't taste as good to me. This product has left me completely disappointed, since i was hoping to get the same candy cigarettes i had as a kid, but am now left with 24 boxes of candy cigarettes that i do not even enjoy. If you are a fan of the originals and remember the greatness of them, you will be hugely disappointed when these arrive.Read more ›
Candy cigarettes I bought in the mid to late 1960s had a wonderfully subtle (still can't name it) flavor that was so enjoyable I'd suck on one end of a candy cigarette to try to make it last as long as I could, and would innevitably be unable to resist biting into it. The old/original candy cigarettes crunched when you bit into one, and only with biting it did you discover the mild grit and the slightly chalky taste.
The only similarities between the candy cigarettes of the 1960s and the product being sold here is the shape of the candy, and maybe the packaging. There's no flavor in this product (and I really do mean no flavor) and the texture is all wrong. Biting into one = no crunch, no grit, no chalky flavor. It just melts into a glob in your molars that feels (but doesn't taste like) confectioners sugar.
2/11/13 UPDATE -- GOOD NEWS: World Confections announced that they are returning permanently to the old recipe! During the transition, which is expected to start in an April 2013 timeframe, they will be "affixing an Original Recipe sticker to the boxes of candy that contain the original 'melt-in-your-mouth' recipe."
