Flavoured Tobacco Products

Flavoured tobacco products include menthol cigarettes, as well as mint-, candy-, fruit- or alcohol-flavoured cigarillos, cigars, shisha (waterpipe tobacco), blunt wrap, bidis and smokeless tobacco. These products are often packaged in brightly-coloured wrappers and are strongly scented. Flavoured products can act as starter products for kids. Adding flavours masks the harshness of tobacco making products more enjoyable for younger users. Flavours and selective marketing strategies also increase the appeal of tobacco products and encourage experimentation among youth.
