 Yeah, I'm a bad, bad mama. Candy cigarettes were one of my favorite things when I was little (although I acutally perfered the ones that were gum wrapped in white paper that you could get to puff out "smoke."  These are the ones that taste just slightly better than chalk.  But when I saw the package, I couldn't resist.


Here's to hoping this will be as close as they ever get to actually smoking!

  1. Oh my goodness, I thought they didn't make those anymore. Must be one of those myths! I loved them when I was a kid, too.

  2. I used to go to a local shop, get these type of candies, and then get a fake nosering and go home to try and scare my mom. ;)

  4. I always asked my mom to buy me them as a kid and she said "no, cause then you will smoke!" Ironically, she started to smoke 2 years later. LOL!!

  5. I remember these ones and their chalk flavor but not the puffing ones. Your little "smokers" are too cute! And I definitely agree that hopefully they never get any closer to the real thing than this!

  16. Oh well. It will a good memory bad mom. Just kidding about the "Bad" part. I let my 4 year old watch Transformers and Spiderman. I'm "Bad" too.

    I never had one of them when I was little. I missed out.

  25. Oh, they were my favorite too, but my parents wouldn't let me have them so my friends would buy them when we were out and share them with me.
    I haven't been able to find them anywhere around here. I would SO buy them in a minute just for ME, my kids are all grown up. =)
    I don't think you're a bad mommy, just a fun one.
