Despite the fact that many people are obsessed with their health these days, there are still plenty of folk that still enjoy smoking cigarettes. As long as they keep making cigarettes there are sure to be people to buy them. New cigarette brands appear all the time but currently the 10 most popular in the world would be:
10 – Hilton Cigarettes The Hilton brand of cigarettes is popular worldwide. They are usually chosen because they offer a quality cigarette at a relatively low price. People do smoke these because they actually prefer them so they are more than just a low cost option. The nice thing about Hilton is that people can smoke these without feeling like they are being cheap. Hilton Lights are probably the most popular of all their products.
9 – West Cigarettes West cigarettes are a European brand that is popular in the US. This is another brand that is considered to offer high quality tobacco at a reasonable price. This brand will also be recognized by sports fans as they sponsor many events – including the increasingly popular cage fighting.
8 - Liggett and Myers (L&M) L&M are a relatively new arrival in the US, but they have managed to capture a respectable position in the marketplace. They are advertises as being of the highest quality and having the best filter – they come as menthol and non-menthol. This brand has also managed to become popular in many other parts of the world.
7 – Parliament Parliament cigarettes have been around since 1931. These are well known for their white filters which are recessed – this makes it look as if they have no filter. There are many different types of Parliament cigarette including menthol and non-mental. They also produce light cigarettes.
6 – Pall Mall Cigarettes Pall Mall cigarettes have been traditionally associated with wealth and luxury – the brand has been around since 1899. They are named after one of the richest parts of London. There is no need to be wealthy in order to enjoy this brand, and this is why it is no one of the most popular around. The pack has a distinctive coat of arms which further gives the impression that this is a high class pack of cigarettes.
5 – Lucky Strikes Lucky Strikes have been around since 1871 making them one of the oldest cigarette brands in the world. This was the top selling cigarette in the US for decades, and it many people still would not consider smoking anything else. They are more popularly referred to as “luckies”. They have appeared regular in films and TV shows over the years – most notably in the hit eighties TV show Miami Vice.
4- Newport Newport is the number one brand for African Americans, but they only manage number four in our list. The menthol version of this cigarette is the most popular – they account for about 35% of all the sales of menthol cigarettes in the US. The brand has been around since the 1960s but it really became popular in the nineties. Newport cigarettes are the favorite of many famous rap artists, and they have to be given at least some credit for popularizing this brand.
3 – Winston Cigarettes Winston cigarettes first became available in the mid fifties. They were once associated with the cartoon show the Flintstones because Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble were used to advertise the brand. This was back in the 1960s and it is doubtful that any cigarette company would get away with using cartoon characters these days. Winston Cigarettes are popular in many countries around the world – they were the number one brand in Puerto Rico for many years.
2 – Camel Cigarettes Camel Cigarettes probably have the most distinctive packaging of any of these brands – or at least it was up until a few years ago when they were forced to change it. The picture on the front of the pack is a camel –his name is Joe Camel. This used to be a cartoon camel, but the company decided to change the design because there were accusations that this made their cigarettes more appealing to children. Camel cigarettes have a harsh taste that some people seem to really enjoy – those who are not use to them get the impression that they are stronger than other cigarettes because of the taste.
1 – Marlboro Cigarettes Marlboro cigarettes are the most popular brand in the world. They are produced by a US company and have been available since the 1920s. They became so well known because of their distinctive taste, and the talent of its advertisement department over the years. Despite the macho image of Marlboro today it was originally marketed as a woman’s cigarette. It was only during the 1950s that the idea of associating the brand with cowboys came about. This turned out to be the move that made the brand so popular. Marlboro has been heavily involved in sponsoring sporting events around the world, and this has also increased their public profile to make them such a well known name.
